This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Leona.
I am in two worlds, the corporate world during the day, and then my world as an artist – if I have the energy afterwards. I want to transition from the corporate world to having a successful, lucrative career as an artist, and so far have had some small successes, with being juried into shows, etc. I want big success, I want to get my stuff out there and share my vision of beauty with the world. I am not financially secure enough to just quit my day job, and I find the struggle disheartening at times. Any words of insight would be very much appreciated!
This is a great question and a perfect example of what I wrote about last week in reference to what Maxwell Maltz calls a Cybernetic Mechanism.
You see the truth is that you have a deep desire to be massively successful artist, but you also have a conflicting “set point” or sub-conscious belief that is giving you the message that it’s just not possible.
This belief is causing you to choose the perceived security of a day job over fully stepping into your gift. There may also be a hidden fear that’s keeping you from sharing your work with the world.
It’s hard to know the set point that’s stopping you without actually having a conversation with you. But just know if you truly wanted to be an artist more than anything and share your work, you would.
Uncovering those hidden beliefs you have is going to be key in helping you see how realizing your dream of becoming an artist is possible.
One suggestion I have for you would be to set a date to leave your day job and then go to work preparing for that day.
You must force yourself to release the belief that you need the day job to support you, it’s simply not true.
The other suggestion I would make is to really look at your beliefs and values. If you can become aware of what’s controlling your thinking, you can consciously choose differently.
It’s one of the main reasons I’m hosting a one-day training in New York on this specific topic. My goal is to help all the attendees identify their own set points that are in their way of their own wealth and success.
