Logic Of The Day: 25.04.2018.
You need to climb that mountain. Being a creative requires fortitude. You have to be a persistent soul. You have to learn how to say no to people. You have to develop mastery of your time management.
Most people lack self-control and consistent willpower. Setting routines, habits, and associating with the right people will help. Avoid those who pull you away with destructive behavior.
Seek simplicity wherever you can. Cutting out the non-essential from your life clears the way for what matters. Your family, friends, health and passions. So, do me a favor. If you’re discouraged or tired, don’t give up. Keep climbing that mountain. Don’t worry about those artists and creatives who are further along than you. This is your journey, not theirs.
Push yourself, forgive yourself, but keep climbing that mountain. Sometimes the mountain will win, but then, nothing worthwhile in life is ever easy.
There is great joy in art and creativity, no matter what particular point you are on the mountain. Just keep ascending.
“I think I will be able to, in the end, rise above the clouds and climb the stairs to Heaven, and I will look down on my beautiful life.” — Yayoi Kusama. It’s a beautiful mountain, and a joyous place to spend your time. Until you’re ready for the next plateau. And should you reach the summit, rest assured, there are taller mountains beyond the horizon.
It’s all part of this marvelous journey we’re on.
