Keeping an Open Mind as an Artist

Keeping an Open Mind as an Artist

We are all artists. Art is simply the act of creation. 

Each day we are able to create the reality around us by painting our canvas called... LIFE.


Everything I have ever learnt in life has come from having an open mind. 


As artists, it benefits us to keep an open mind. 


Without an open mind, you are closing yourself off to the possibility of anything new. 


You are saying NO to new experiences, new relationships, and new perspectives.


 After all, there is a first time for everything... A stranger is only a friend you haven’t met yet... and some of your most powerful beliefs that you have adopted were once a fresh perspective. 


It is important to remind ourselves to invite beliefs that differ from our own and examine them without bias.


Only here are we able to expand our own personal perimeters.


Ask yourself, how many of your beliefs that you hold have you arrived at on your own?


Why do you believe what you believe?


Allow yourself to be curious and in doing so you will be able to shatter all of your own limiting beliefs.


Possibilities are truly limitless in this life... if you believe it to be true.


dream BIG & as always keep going,

“Regardless of whether or not we’re formally making art, we are all living as artists. We perceive, filter and collect data, then curate an experience for ourselves and others based on this information set. Whether we do this consciously or subconsciously, by the mere fact of being alive, we are active participants in the ongoing process of creation."

-The Creative Act: A Way of Being by Rick Rubin
