01. From burned out artist back to alignment
How do you go from drained, burned out and starving artist to finding alignment? In this episode, I'll share my personal story, and how that led me to create this podcast.
Welcome to the first episode of Create From The Source podcast, part of my new online publication - also called Create From The Source! In this intro episode, I’ll tell you all about what this podcast is about, why I decided to start this show, and what I think this podcast will bring to your life. To give you a little background about that, I’ll share with you a story about going from enthusiastic, multi-passionate creative to drained, burned out and starving artist, and finding back to alignment again.
Takeaways from this episode:
Surround yourself with teachers, coaches and mentors who can not only train you and help you develop your own voice as an artist, teacher and creative entrepreneur, but also encourage you, and hold space for you to grow, giving you challenges & providing you with opportunities to step into the future version of yourself.
Develop your own artistic and teaching style by developing your special sauce. It’s mixed with all the ingredients that you’ve learned and been influenced by, together with your own personality and special talents.
Mindset matters! Not just your own mindset, but also the mindset and beliefs of the people you hang out with and surround yourself with, plays a big role in whether you’ll be successful or not with your goals and the vision you hold for your creative work and life.
The voice of your Source is always speaking to you, but it might be clouded by a lot of noise (like the voice of the Inner Critic and the limiting beliefs and stories of the collective consciousness), so you might need some practice to tune in to the right frequency.
You are the CEO of your artist life & business. Invest in training, coaching and mentoring for your artist life & business, just like you invest in developing your craft and your skills as an artist or teacher.
