Episode 003 - How to be a PRO-Creator Ft. Javier Sanchez
From this moment on…
Happy Weekend Eve!! I am honored to have some words of wisdom from one of my good friends, partners, and influencers Javier Sanchez! Me and Javi have a coffee table workbook together called From this Moment On: Personal Reminders for MASSIVE success in school, at work, at play, and in the shower. Javier is a speaker, author, comedian, poet, father and more. He travels the world adding value and providing practical tools to youth and adults alike for living a more intentional and happy life.
Javier breaks down being PRO-Creator how we can fuel our creativity and intention into three parts:
P - PURE
What you create has to come from a PURE Place.
R - RESPECT & Recognize
Come from a respectful place and recognize the value of what you do and the value in others.
O - Be OPEN
Be open to feedback. Both positive and negative feedback. Rejection is a part of the process. So as a creative, you have to develop a thick skin.
Side Note: In this episode
I talk a little bit about having grace for yourself and the creative process. This ish is hard some days and you can be committed but miss the mark. That’s okay. The important thing to remember is to remember your intention and don’t get stuck in the cycle of pity. Be loyal to your creative practice and get back to it when you can, just don’t abandon it if it is fruitful.
Take a listen and let me know in the comments what being a PRO-Creator means to you.
