Each of us has a finite amount of energy. And it’s so easy to use it up putting out the fires in your life to the point where you have nothing left to give to your art.
When things are going well in your personal and financial life, it’s easier to create and it’s easier to take risks with with your art.
On the flipside, when you have too much drama and emotional instability, it’s much more difficult to do any kind of work, and this is especially true for creative work. And of course, since you’re a creative person, you by nature, are attracted to drama and angst.
The problem is, the more of it you find in your personal life, the less you will be able to handle in your creative one. I have learned over the years to not create drama in my business, in my finances, and especially in my relationships. I have learned to save it for my novels and my writing.
If you can, like most creatives, recognize the desire for angst and move it away from your life and into your work, then instead of constantly putting out fires of your own making, you will instead be building a really powerful body of work.
This is why I suggest that whenever possible, try and keep as much sanity and balance as you possibly can. Of course, this is not entirely in your control, but when you can, minimize the drama in your days so that you can live them out on the page.
I frequently talk about financial stability, but financial stability is not the only kind of stability. There are other things that will impact the work that you do and how you can do it.
Those are the things that we talk about on Day 25 of the 30 Days to Creative Courage course.
