I had always thought the key to creating in life was to work hard. From the time I was a young boy, I studied hard, got straight A’s, went to college, and forced my way through closed doors. I had always felt this was the best modality, as that was what I saw around me in the effective examples of those who were bosses and executives.
However, as I began to start my own creative business, I realized that creation is much different than pushing your way to the top in a nine-to-five world. In fact, much of the creative process is about doing the hard work, and then LETTING GO!
What does this mean to someone who has spent the last three years writing a novel?
Coming from someone who had done this 14 times and pushed and pushed my way into agencies and publishing companies, I realized that nothing good comes from pushing—NOTHING! The best resolve I have had over the years has come unexpectedly and by being prepared. In other words, my job as a creator is to create. So, my advice to you is this:
- Do you job!
- Sow your seeds!
- When opportunity knocks, BE PREPARED!
Once you present yourself, your product, or your art, then the rest is up to someone else, usually. So, how can any form of force, albeit even mental force, be of any help? It truly cannot. In fact, this kind of mental force will only cause disappointment in the end, especially if the end result does not go in your direction, which is the case most of the time in the creative arts.
The best resolve in this situation is to always be prepared, continue to create, and LET IT GO!
I may be speaking to the choir, but almost every day I face the possibility of rejection. I go to an audition. I do the best I can. And, the rest is NOT up to me. In fact, even after I get an audition, my part of the film may end up on the editing floor. Does it matter? In the end, no. I have done the job I was hired to do. My part is over.
The best advice I have ever gotten concerning life is that: We plant the seeds; God grows the tree.
You must be firm in your resolve to stay with this premise in every situation. You cannot force life to happen in any situation, no matter how strong-willed you think you are. Your will is often what is keeping your good from flowing easily to you!
