THE ISSUES

1. Being happy to be unskilled and unaware

2. Never balance experience and confidence.

3. Bypass wisdom in favour of action.

This term keeps popping up in my readings. This week “New Scientist” referred to it.

People over estimate their ability, usually because they think they’re superior.

Self awareness is a skill they have yet to master.

  I googled it. Think about this …

IF YOU FIND YOURSELF SAYING THESE THINGS … STOP. JUST STOP

I saw a documentary the other day. You need to know this ….

There was a post on Facebook, I think you should change  …

 

 

 

 

It’s not that complicated. Just look at what I’ve done

 

 You  can do this. I did. (not everyone has the same level of ability)

COMFORT ZONES CAN 'SUCK'!

Have the confidence in yourself to take risks, be prepared to have to learn more. And,  understand who you are is not limited to this minute. Being perfect is not at issue. Being confident enough to trust yourself is. Confidence opens the doors of opportunity.

CONFIDENCE

Important Musings – a bit philosophical
Having Confidence:
Is it something you grow up with, or something you grow into?

Do you get it, or receive it?

If you’ve got, it is a permanent thing?

Or do you need to get your confidence checked up from time to time?

Newest course – creating Abstract Portraits. Methods. Techniques. Suitable for novie and experienced artists. Minimal resources needed

  • Have your eyes on the prize. Rephrased as ‘know what you want and make decisions that can make dreams true’.
 
  • Only look backward to check you’re still on the right track. Meaning, changes in philosophy and direction must be supported by actions;  if specific goals are to be achieved.
 
  • Be nice. In other words, don’t play games, value the people around you. Especially those supporting and guiding you – even when the lessons are difficult.
