I eventually quit my job as an Art Teacher, then quit my job with Paramount Pictures as a Location assistant then quit being a International Travel supervisor with AAA to launch my full time Art career in 2005.
I would like to tell you my career drastically changed right at that moment, but that wasn’t the case. Following my Passion did not create the dream life or financial freedom.
I was taking massive action, I said all the incantations and affirmations and was practicing my other positive rituals, but The Old Paradigm was still in control, even though I had launched 8 full scale art openings in 1 year, I was gripped with fear of not having 1 sale.
It felt like I was a product of the "starving artist paradigm" and it sucked!
That’s when something inside me burst. I had had enough!
I knew I had to change and change now.
I asked God to put me in front of the #1 person who could teach me about Wealth Creation.
2 months later I was having dinner with Bob Proctor in his living room in Toronto.
WHAT? How the Heck did that happen? Right?
I needed to know WHY that door opened and why my art was not selling.
That's why I'm a Consultant for the Proctor Gallagher Institute and use their training material for every person who want's my help achieving their Worthy Ideals in life.
Maybe you think following your bliss and purpose will make you happy, rich, famous, enlightened, loved and appreciated? It won't.
I'm not the expert, in fact I did not create these principles. When understood and followed, these principles make everything work like a well designed machine.
BUT! Resistant, Challenging & Ignorant people like me see success as magic or luck.
I had a lot going for me but it was applied in the wrong direction.
I don't like to follow the rules and that's the rub. Rules are not the problem.
My mind habitually likes to challenge the status quo and push outside the box and I found that I can't challenge Universal Order, I have to work with the Laws and Principles that Science & Spiritual Wisdom reveal. Those principles give us the ability to become aware of how to create all we can imagine.
I was one of those UNAWARE & IGNORANT people who thought I "knew" and did not know anything. I had mostly unconscious competence, conscious incompetence and a lot of superstition and fear.
But mostly I was Ungrateful, Self Centered and Selfish. I only cared about me & getting my art out there while complaining that no one wanted to buy.
I had a bad ATTITUDE.
I was hoping for the magic that would make it all make sense & rescue my fate.
I found out that people do not buy what they do not want or need. Hello!!!
So I face 2 choices & 1 decision
1. Give the people around me what they want.
2. Create from a place of inspiration and find the people who resonate with the work I create.
Stop Complaining and help people get what they want!
I learned that Financial compensation follows a clear principle, I receive money based on:
1. The need for what I do.
2. My ability to do it.
3. The difficulty in replacing me & what I offer.
I learned that Artists are not the only ones with "lack" paradigms. There are "starving", money poor people in every career, Artists are really not that special, even though we think we are particularly oppressed.
That's just a thought not a truth.
