I don’t’ like to be defined. “It doesn’t help me to define. I do what I’m interested in, what excites me, and hopefully, it excites other people. Is it art? Is it design? Is it painting? Who does fucking care?
“It has to do with the reflections that reflect the world and the gaps between them – the nothing – that play a part as well,”
Creativity is an example of something that can be risky; when you share your creativity with those around you, you risk rejection and vulnerability, but if you’re willing to risk that failure, it increases your possibility of a great achievement.
Innovation happens when you step outside of that self-made wall you put up. Any skill that you have right now, started off as awkward and stressful but the more you practiced it the better you became at it.
In fact, getting comfortable with being uncomfortable is the key to overcoming fear and anxiety. What I have learned from past experiences is that pushing passed your comfort zone isn’t necessarily an easy task.
Start small if you have to, you don’t need to throw your entire routine out the window. Start by doing minor things differently and work your way up to the bigger stuff.
The biggest thing I can advise you to do is to reinterpret fear as a feeling of excitement for new opportunities. If you manage to condition yourself to think this way, then the scary feeling in the pit of your stomach will soon become welcoming butterflies of new experiences.
Again, there’s nothing wrong with your comfort zone, but pushing the borders won’t hurt you, it can only help you flourish and reach new heights you’ve never even imagined.
For myself… I live for 30 years with passing every day the boundaries… Starting with 12, running away from home, homeless, Owner of a 15 million euro company I dropped after 12 years, 7 years hitchhiking around the world ( 100 countries, all continents, 600 cities… ) no boundaries. What I’m saying is… doesn’t need to be so extreme I will die young and fast and I’m ready for it… every single minute of the day.
