“How Artistry is Connected to Our Deepest Values”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
In artistic fields, it can often be challenging to keep your own sense of values in sight. Also, there are many pressures that can make putting your own values in your work something we become averse to doing. Our values are ever evolving, deepening and essential to creating truthful work — it’s not the easiest job but is beyond rewarding.
POINT #1: “DEFINING YOURSELF CAN BE DESTRUCTIVE”
-We often love to declare ourselves by the art forms we express with. Sometimes we tie ourselves so tight to the idea of being the thing we do that we forget our infinite potential as human beings. As artists, we can be whatever we choose to be.
POINT #2: “PRACTICE DETACHMENT FROM RESULTS”
-When we detach from results and our desired outcomes, we become more available to create and more courageous in expressing our values.
POINT #3: “YOU ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE”
-Learning that we have the power of choice in everything we do or don’t do means that we can fully and wholeheartedly choose the things we connect to the most. Until we claim our power to say no, we can never truly say yes.
