Let’s talk about resistance today
|Not this one!|
The resistance is this enemy in our head. She always gives us a lot of reasons: we are not yet ready, still not good enough, we do not have THE good idea …
If we can not ignore that voice, we will never start anything.
The difference between an amateur artist and a professional artist is the lover believes he will, first, eliminate fears it before starting. The pro, he actually advance, knowing that his fears never disappear. It starts before they feel ready. He knows he will always have stage fright before going on stage (even after decades in representation.)
Needless to prepare. Start!
Do the work, introduce yourself to your canvas, your sheet.
The secret then is to not think of the finished work.
The secret is to think small steps. One after the other: I take this color, I make this trait … these small steps lead to other, and then to others … and it’s over. It’s that first step that brings us closer to our goal. Do not think about the goal, but this small step …
Need excuses not to do? Here is enough to power the small voice of the resistance on the blog of gourmet garden (under change of life.) The thirty Excuses work well for me 🙂
