Why are you a furniture artist? Or let me ask, why are you still a furniture artist?
o Have you found what you really enjoy doing? Are you still searching?
o I was listening to a voice coach on YouTube the other day describing a musician's voice and song selection. He mentioned that a musician needs to be at one with the selection. Needed to feel the music and his passion come through the music.
o Does that apply to us, furniture artists?
o Do you have to be at one with your project? It’s deep that I feel has excellent accuracy in what I do.
o Passion can drive you so fast into a project that you soon become so stuck your project is hitting a wall and you don’t know what to do. Or is that adrenaline?
· You can be good at something, but does it mean you enjoy it or have a passion for it?
· What’s the difference between gifted, skilled, and passion?
· Sometimes I feel you can judge the level of passion by the ability to conquer difficulties.
· For example, if you come up with a difficult challenge with your project, do you put it to the side or do you say—"I got this, I will not be conquered by this”?
· There’s a choice you make, a mindset and state of mind that puts you in a path for success.
· Passion brings you back, it drives you to keep going,
· to keep reaching
· Passion for growth
· Passion to have success?
· Passion to do the craft regardless of what others think?
· Have you ever used the phrase—“I’m waiting for the piece to speak to me”? I am sure we all have.
· Be careful you aren’t just too spread thin. A passion for what you love should clear the way for you to get back to the goal or the prize. You might need to simplify the path.
· You should find more joy in what you do if you have an open slate to let the passion drive.
