Stay Open

The worse thing that can happen to an artist is to become jaded. In this business it happens more often than not. So many of us get so caught up in the evils of just doing business that it can sometimes break your spirit and we become closed to growth, wisdom and enlightenment. We must stay open as not to stunt our creative growth. We have all had experiences and for the most part we think we know a lot. This is true but it doesn't mean that we can't still learn more. Most of us get to an age where we can't be told or taught anything because we think we know it all and this is creative and career suicide. Success is always about growth and that growth NEVER stops. It's all about continually educating ourselves in our craft and this business. We need to continue to study and challenge ourselves and not be so quick to assert an opinion when something is different from what we are used to. We should just add this new thing to our repertoire. Staying open also gives us a positive point of view and invites opportunity. So don't get jaded, stay open to the beauty that exists in every creative encounter. Enjoy the journey.
