10 Artistic Self Concept Builders

I made this list today as a way to encourage myself.  Hopefully it will help you too!

Builders
  1. Focus on your Strengths.
  2. Expect to work for what you want most.
  3. Set limits and work within those limits.  
    • You do not fail if you don't meet them, but if you over extend you may never reach your goal.  These may include time limits, personal achievements, sales goals or organizational limits.
  4. Make it look easy - People are always amazed at great artwork and say things like, "Wow, that looks so intricate" or "that must have taken so long" or simply "how do you do that?".  Often I think, it wasn't that hard!  It didn't take me that long!
  5. Fighting the process won't be beneficial to you and your goals.  Don't Fight yourself!
  6. Own your problems, solve those problems in a creative way that works for your business and life.
  7. Avoid making the same mistake twice.  Don't punish yourself for making a mistake. 
  8. Love your work for what it is - it is a part of you and it is special, deserving your unconditional love.  I find myself saying internally: "It isn't that great!" or "You really like it?" or "Well okay, if you think it is good then I guess I like it too!"  As Artists we are very intuitive and eager to please.  Start by pleasing yourself.  You are the one who matters most.  If you love your art for what sells, then you steal from your Artistic self concept.  Love your work for what it is!
