Being an artist is TOUGH! Constant thoughts of doubt, fear and anxiety. It all comes with being an artist. What if this !? What if that!? Fear your not good enough. Guilt about doing something you love while others suffer day in and day out at a shit job they hate.
So to help I have created the “SUPER MOTIVATIONAL CORNER OF POWER!!!!.” A section on the left hand side of my blog to help MOTIVATE, ENERGIZE and PUMP YOU UP about art and about being an artist and about pushing through the doubt and staying on the path of doing what you love and following your PASSION IN LIFE!
I will be updating this little corner of power with quotes, motivational images and videos that will kick your ass back into shape! So lets GET TO IT!
What is it you REALLY DESIRE
The great Alan Watts talks about doing what you REALLY DESIRE with your life.
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Following Your Bliss
The KING of “Following Your Bliss” is the man who invented that quote, Jospeph Campbell! Here is a GREAT MOTIVATIONAL section of video from his Bill Moyers talks (skip to 1:50 to hear him talk).
Do what you LOVE!
Another great clip of audio from Joseph Campbell on following what you love to do in life. If you can make your hobby your job you never truly work a day in your life! WHAT!?
Being AFRAID to follow your PASSION
Another GREAT kick in the teeth you may need to get you up and motivated comes from Larry Smith! In his talk titled “Why you will fail to have a great career” which is more a rough realistic view of what happens to you if you dont follow your PASSION!
Steve Jobs AMAZING Commencement Address at Stanford University!

How To Find And Do Work You Love: Scott Dinsmore at TED Talks
“Scott Dinsmore’s mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing. He is a career change strategist whose demoralizing experience at a Fortune 500 job launched his quest to understand why 80% of adults hate the work they do, and more importantly, to identify what the other 20% were doing differently.”
Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams
Wonderful lecture by professor Randy Pausch. Randy Pausch had been diagnosed with cancer and at the time of this speech was told by doctors he had 6 to 8 months left to live. He spent a good part of that time expressing and emphasizing the importance of following your dreams and passions. Be sure to watch this VERY POWERFUL and moving video!
This page is dedicated to my HERO Joseph Campbell, with his words of wisdom, he put me on my path to following my PASSION! Long live the words of Joseph Campbell, Follow Your Bliss.
