It's easy to be hypnotized if we're not careful.
There's always something new to discover.
Something entertaining to see.
Something incredible to learn.
Something to take us away for a few minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years…
Break the spell.
It's easy to blame what's hypnotized us. To not see it was our choice to let others create through us.
It's this reacting that allows reality to keep us preoccupied.
But by creating, we make reality to conform to us.
And it takes great practice. Great patience. Great heroics to battle reality. To change our perceptions. To accept our deficiencies. To endure the uncomfortableness of not knowing what to do. To accept the pain that growth requires. To bear the burden of responsibility new skills and knowledge bring.
But we can transform that pain. We can transform our frustrations. We can fuel our art.
Each brush stroke is 1,000 tears shed.
Each note composed is 1,000 doubts erased.
Each business launched is 1,000 tribulations overcome.
