Here’s a Short Manifesto for creative people, that may offer some valuable insights. If you like it, I recommend reading it out loud and really letting it sink in.
I become the kind of a person who finishes, no matter what. It is the only way.
I become the kind of a person who focuses, so that means to decline from everything else, even when else is good. The thing I focus on is the best for me. Nobody else will know. I’ll know. It is enough.
Even when else is great, I want my thing. That is the best thing. So I refuse the great, in order to get what’s right.
I do it not for myself, but for my craft and for others. I do it for the greater good.
I live the subject at hand. I mold it. I spend time with it. I sit with it. Living it. Loving it.
Sometimes I take time away from my subject, so I appreciate it more.
I become the kind of Person who finishes, who practices, who publishes. I finish my work. I practice my craft. I publish my work.
I become the kind of Person who is self-reliant but also reaches to others.
I become a professional.
I become the kind of Person who is married to the game. I will be there for my craft through hard times. Through ups and Downs. I believe in my craft when nobody else is around. I believe in my craft when its praised. I believe in my craft because it deserves it.
That is love. That is Life.
I become the kind of Person who doesn’t give a fuck, but gives a fuck when its necessary. I care about the things that matter the most.
I become the kind of person who takes care of himself. Sleeps, eats, exercises. Has enough social interaction.
I invite people to work with me.
I talk with other professionals, online and offline.
I grow daily.
I become the kind of Person who grows daily. My skills increase daily as I use them.
I understand the rules and I mend them when necessary.
This is who I am.
It may hurt sometimes. I become the kind of Person who is okay with the hurt. I know growing can be painful.
I’m okay with the pain. I know it will go away.
I embrace the pain. It will go away in time.
I let go of that which no longer serves me and my craft.
I know something even more beautiful will come out of it.
I become the kind of person who moves forward, no matter what.
I become the kind of person who enjoys every step of it.
Let’s go 🙂
