Paulo Coelho: “If you want to be successful, you must respect one rule: NEVER LIE TO YOURSELF.”
So…what’s a liberating truth? It’s the opposite of a limiting belief.
If a limiting belief holds you back, a liberating truth sets you free. That liberating truth allows you to reframe the lie that keeps you stuck.
The Starving Artist Myth
You can’t make any money making art.
Successful artists get there because they were lucky.
Real artists don’t make money from their work. Making money is selling out.
So we need to release that stereotype of the starving artist suffering for the sake of her work.
There are actually many artists out there with thriving successful careers. Online art sales in 2018 were estimated at $6 billion.
Share your work regularly and you’ll attract an audience. When you share your work regularly you will build an audience you can serve. Compelling art comes from showing up regularly and painting. Creativity is a gift we have a responsibility to share.
Making art to make an impact. Use the money you make from your art to make more art and have a greater impact. Remember there are as many definitions of success as there are artists.
