Only One Person Can Advise You. Guess Who?
I have seen the trend that goes on everywhere in the world and I must say it will keep you frustrated. People are looking for compliments. Do you like my new house? Do you love my artwork? How does that website look like? How is my faith?
Just to mention a few so that you won’t stop reading and watch that time wasting series. What is it even called? Don’t answer.
I am a writer and today I want to share a few nuggets about life. First don’t go out looking for answers from outside. Don’t wait for people to tell you you’re the best designer because people will always have all sorts for what best design is. Why do you think there is still a battle for inner and outer beauty among men — beautifulness is ambiguous. Don’t seek approval.
The is only one person who can help you and it is YOU. Go deep into your heart and self examine your roots. Find the reason that commands you to do what you do. Is it writing that you do? Is it cooking and baking? Is it drawing? Teaching, designing, farming, [insert what you do] ? Why do you do it? How deep are the roots that springs forth your passion of what you do?
What would happen if you stopped doing what you do daily. Would you still be the same and how would it feel like for you. Is your brain saying vividly, “I must do,” because if it is not saying so then you should have quit your daily activity like 10 years ago. If that voice is so clear, you will know what to do and you won’t struggle waiting for approval. You will know you write well, you model well, you design expertly and no one can take that from you.
If your everyday life seems poor, dont blame it. Blame yourself and admit to yourself that your poverty cannot bring riches because for the Creator there is no poverty.
No matter the every day experience, encourage yourself, and build your life in accordance with your necessity. Do things differently and this will make you shine because it breeds uniqueness.
In a market, there are many sellers, and yet some have made fortunes in the same place. It is how you view life, how you paint it, how you rise upon such struggles that helps you turn around. Even Seth Godin says that a person must create his/ her own tribe.
A work of art is good if it has risen out of necessity. That is the only way you can judge it. So dear reader, I can’t give you advice as well: go into yourself and see how deep the place is from which your life flows; and at its source you will find the answer to the question whether you must create.
Accept the answer, take the destiny upon yourself, its burden and its greatness, without ever asking what reward might come from outside. Truly the answer lies within you.
