Art, Inflection Points, High Achievers and Low-Achievers

All art projects begin slow, with a high risk of failure and they build to an inflection point.

An art project is what you do….it’s your gift to the world….it could be your poetry, your blog posts, your pictures, the pizzas you make (in my case BBQ), the sermons you preach, your comedy, etc. It’s your art with your unique spin.  It’s what you do that if you suddenly did not show up your tribe would miss you.

An inflection point is where an art project turns a corner and begins to payoff.  The results only you believed in are now clearly in sight.  There’s little chance at failure.  Everybody wants in now.

Achievers are not always better artist than non-achievers…they’re just better at sticking around until the inflection point.

In case you need encouragement to stick.

Self Doubt

There’s a little, tiny voice that speaks to you.  It tells you things like…

  • You can’t do….
  • You’re not good enough!
  • You’re too….
  • You might fail!
  • They’re going to laugh at you!
  • etc, etc, etc.

Acknowledge it so that you can ignore it!

Super Genius

Wile E Coyote Super Genius

The phrase genius is thrown around today like a baseball.  A genius is a person whom before them there was nothing like them, and after them everything bears their mark.  It has noting to do with winning nobel prizes, scholastic achievement, nor new and improved ways to catch a road runner.

Failure spawns the super genius

A super genius is someone who receives a breakthrough after many, many failures.  Try it this way, doesn’t work.  Try it that way, doesn’t work…until eventually the public recognizes we are all better off because this person lived.  Often the genius does not receive recognition in her lifetime.

You are a super genius

Scientist believe that we all can function on a genius level at something.  The key is finding character to apply consistent persistence when you encounter resistance.

Something to make you go…hmm!  Most of the resistance you encounter is from within not without.

What You Think Matters

The Man Who Thinks He Can by Napoleon Hill

If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you’d like to win, but think you can’t, it’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost.

For out in the world we find success begins with a fellow’s will: It’s all in his state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are: You’ve got to think high to rise

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you’ll ever win that prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man, but sooner or later the man who wins is the one who thinks he can.
