In my previous posts, you discovered your real feelings and channelled them into a creative product or service. Well done. This could be your first step in supporting you with a full-time artistic career but how do you do this?
On the one hand, you can create a product or service to help to heal or balancing the emotions, such as essential oils, bath salts, a book about feelings and emotions, crystal jewellery, a wellness retreat in Bali, you name it.
On the other hand, you can create a product to reflect and acknowledge the emotions; such as a song, a painting or photograph that captures the mood, a fiction book or movie using a character which embodies the feelings.
These are just a few examples. There are no limits to your creativity and no correct version of your art. See it as work in progress. It does not need to be perfect. Get it started and go with the flow. Perfection leads to frustration. Nothing in life is perfect. If you aim for perfection, you will chase your own tail all life long. Having a desire for a creation to accurately and authentically express your feelings is a more realistic intention that being perfect in creating a product or service.
How to overcome perfectionism?
The best way to deal with perfectionism is to start your project right in the middle. Starting a new big project seems daunting and can quickly overwhelm us. Overwhelm then leads to procrastination, which is a form of self-sabotage. The problem is once you start procrastinating you wait for the perfect moment where everything feels right, and you prepared. But guess what, this moment will never happen. A perfectionist will never be ready. Waiting around means that someone else might come up with your idea. Don’t be annoyed if that happens. The universe got the idea, and if you wait around for the perfect moment, someone else gets and will take this chance.
My advice is to devote time to your creative project and start in the middle. Don’t worry how to begin, this will come in later and probably will be much more apparent. Start with whatever you are passionate about. Trust the flow.
