Persist Art Every Day Month Day 3

The voice inside of your head says this is all so crazy.  You are unrealistic.  You are not being practical.  Really?  Is it true?   You listen long enough and you start to believe the voices to the point that it's easy to regress back into the 'just good enough' to get by actions.  After all, great things never happen to you.

I'm here to say that it's all hogwash. You can do whatever it is that you desire to do.  It may take awhile....or it can happen tomorrow, even if it never happens, you'll be farther ahead than if you never tried at all.  But you can do it. PERSIST despite the voices in your head or around you.
Be determined.
It does however start with a goal. You gotta want something in order to be able to work towards getting it.  You must care about yourself and protect your dreams.  If you don't care, why should anyone else?  All too often we listen to that voice in our heads that squash our bigger voice that pulls us towards all that is possible because of fear.  Sounds funny, who would fear success or fear achieving a goal?  It's all about the unknown....I understand completely. I have to squash that voice all the time.  Sometimes it's about doing too much too fast. Not sure if I can handle it all and balance my world while getting there.  Not sure if I go for it, I will get it.   (No promises unfortunately for any of us..... we won't ever know unless we try though).  I do know--if it's important, if it's worth it...don't give it up.   Go for whatever it is  you want!

You are so right. I could not have said it better myself. We must change the negative voice to a positive one.
