The Heart of Ambition

The artist, the maker, the creator breaks things apart to create efficiently. They find time to focus and commit to their practice, and along the way, their mind, body, and soul develop as they craft their beautiful work in small increments.

Sometimes, we lose our way in bad habits and fears. We end up circling, wrestling with mainstream ideas, talking ourselves out of breakthroughs, and granting opportunities to empty time-wasting.

The best part of reaching the aforementioned life storm, is overcoming the test. We are stronger artists and entrepreneurs, as we become battle-tested and ready to create despite any obstacle. 

The beating heart of your ambition pulses no matter the storm. This is proven true, when after years of neglect, our art still calls to us and we fight the urge to return to our discipline. We must learn to breathe before being consumed by storms. We must learn to listen as we create. We must learn to work in increments. Compile your work over time, and no matter how loud the world becomes, never silence your own ambition.

PS. Another busy week of manifesting the dream. Editing my web series has really changed the way I view television and film. I see the color correction, the lighting set-ups, and now I care about shadows and framing. This author and filmmaking journey has made me see the world in a new way. It’s good to see old things with new eyes and to find inspiration in the smallest facets of life. Keep striving, the day is yours.
