I don’t know anyone that is browsing through behance or dribbble on daily basis that don’t envy a bit successful artist. What I could do and how my life would be different If I had such talent!
Do you think it takes talent to hold a pencil for ten hours? Do you think it takes talent to wake up early and practice? Talent it’s just a small seed, it will dry and die if you don’t take care of it. You need to feed it daily with patience, time and stubbornness to make it grow into something big and meaningful.
Yes it took talent to imagine it but it took lot of physical work to create it. Talent is like an idea, it’s worth a dollar until you pick it up and create something with it. It’s the creation that makes talent real.
Can you Imagine that two years ago I felt fear when I was supposed to draw something? I didn’t draw well, I had an idea in my head but I was unable to make it happened. Which is weird to say the least since I’m a graphic designer, right? And it took as little as few hand drawn icons a day to make the change.
Stop envy others and pick up your pencil, today.
Imagine the satisfaction from your first success. Imagine the satisfaction from your first complete work, make it your goal. Decide that you will practice every day and stick to it, even if you feel hopeless and stupid at first. Each great journey starts with the first step, do it! O wait! I have just the clip for you 😉
