What is your art? If you give a kid a paper and a crayon, he can draw anything. Trust me he WILL draw you anything!
As we morph into adults though our creativity slowly fades. When I first started playing guitar I wrote a ton of music. As I grew as a musician, I stopped writing. I was a better musician, but my creativity slowed down.
When Did You Lose Your Art?
You art may not be music or drawing, it could be a number of things.
Most people lose their art because someone didn’t approve.
The number one reason for stopping an art is because someone doesn’t like it. I am not an artist nor do I claim to be one on TV, but every artist has critics.
Artistic Perfection is Impossible
There is no perfect artist, because we don’t live in a perfect world. Yet when we have an art, we decide that it has to be perfect or it isn’t presentable. Thus, no one sees it, and we lose our art.
You are your biggest critic
Sometimes we get a little self conscious when it comes to our art. Then we abandon it in fear of criticism. However we were the one giving ourselves the criticism in the first place.
How do I get my art back?
Your art will be great! You just have to create it. Use the build it and they will come mentality. I personally choose the everyday immersion technique. Meaning that if I want to create something bigger than myself I work on it every day.
I do cardio everyday.
When you set the pace for your day, it creates a mindset. That is why all of my posts are scheduled to publish at 5 AM Monday-Friday. I write them days in advance, but I want to see that email come in (you can subscribe and get it too) while I am in the middle of my workout.
So the way you get your art back is simple, practice. Write/Draw/Sing/Color like no one will see it, because one day they will see it.
