Complacency: A Big Mistake Some Creatives Make

“The further you get away from yourself, the more challenging it is. Not to be in your comfort zone is great fun.” 
~Benedict Cumberbatch

Whether you’re a rocket scientist or a hairdresser — if you think you’re in your groove and that’s where you’ll stay, you’ve got a big surprise a-coming.

There’s nothing wrong with being on top of your game (and leave room for evolution) but when you think you’ve accomplished all there is to achieve in your field or you’re in a creative comfort zone — you block vital expansive energy.

Change is the Only Constant

With change being the only thing you can rely on in this universe, it’s actually quite pleasant to luxuriate in the understanding that there is always room for growth, new opportunities and new avenues of expression.

When we limit ourselves through thinking we know it all we severely cut off essential learning curves that could catapult your talents to new heights — as you will see in the video below:

“Pushing the envelope of creative expansion breaks down any illusion of limitation. Once you step out of the box, infinity beckons your every whim. Bask in the knowledge that existence is infinite, as are all possibilities. We create in a field of pure energy potential.” ~ Excerpt from Creative Expression — How to Find Your Inspiration

  1. I’ve seen better day. But I’ve also seen worse. I don’t have everything that I want, but I do have all I need. I woke up with some aches and pains, but I woke up. My life may not be perfect but I am blessed.
