don't trust your weakness. it knows nothing about you.
When you find that burns during your lift, that’s the heat of transformation. That’s what changes everything for you. Don’t be so anxious to finish the set, once you get the burns, dwelling in it as long as you can. The longer that burns stay, the more changes you gonna have. That burn states will get you from where you are to where you want to be.

Dreams without goals, remain dreams. And ultimately fuel disappointment. Goals on the road to achievement cannot be reached without discipline and consistency. Dreaming is a storm of storms looping and spinning until the best out of the best falls on the ground for us to pick. Being confident about it is to let go of the fear of failure of the idea. Such as that it won’t work, or that people won’t like it. Failing is the way to massive to success. So to succeed we must fail again and again and again. We must fail, fail forward.
If you hear a sound that tells you that you cannot paint, then by all means you should paint, and that voice will be silenced for good. It is within the essence of oneself to change the mindset to whatever we want to become. Once that mindset is shifted in the right direction, consistency will happen in the action of default. . Mastering a dream is like working out at the gym. The results won't come over night and there's no magic pill, product or shortcuts. It’s a process with slow progress. Like the moon being full once a month, but once it’s full; it grabs all the attention with its shiny magic that makes us stand and marvel. Like the moon, it takes time to be completed in order for it to shine.
There is this myth that says that geniuses are the ones that fails less. False that, though creative geniuses are quite prolific when it comes to failure – they just don’t let that stop them. FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear takes over people, it stops people from doing what they want to do, and it creates that lack of creativity and confidence within them. Fear kills dreams, kills hope, fear can make people age and fade before their time. It will paralyze you. At the end of your feelings is nothing, but behind every principle is a promise. We are all emotional, and if we don’t discipline our emotions, they will take over our actions. Making a declaration is a must. Life will knock you down and that’s a given. The question is what are you going to do about it? That will make all the difference in creativity and confidence. We must accept where we are and take full responsibility to where we want to go. To live life like every day will be our last day living. Living with passion and drive, it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday. Adore failure, there is always an answer for everything. It’s an uphill battle, in that battle you won’t see too many friends. You’ll see your own shadow most often, it is a must to trust your heart of hearts. Inside what you’re doing for a worthy cause in winnable fight. There’s nothing to fear, but fear itself. An old proverb states that: “success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan” to learn from failure, however, you have to “own” it.
High anxiety and depression, can cause oneself to be outstandingly creative. How? What’s bad for the heart becomes good for the art. Unfortunately though, those whom suffer from high anxiety and depression have a side effect of seeking people’s acceptance. As an individual who experienced such kind of a suffering, I’ve found myself expressing my pain into my photography as an artist. Which thankfully was outstanding and different. The best way to gain confidence in your dream is through action – taken one step at a time. As little kids we’ve feared the dark places, but once I’ve put myself in what I’ve feared from the darkness; it automatically liberated me from it and set my mind free. Yes I’ve been through bad times that I wanted to give up on my art, been through other times that I wanted to commit suicide. Yes, I’ve left my family in a young age and faced the world earlier than other kids did. That’s all part of the process, it all affected me in a way that it re-shaped me differently in the way I flow. Having a dream is not something that we buy off a store shelf. Dreams might leave scars on us, part of being ourselves. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in every one of us. But those whom are ready to suffer from that scar are the ones who have their hands raised in the arena of life at the end of the journey. Those are the dreamers and life winners. One must be self-sufficient, to have no fear to honestly expressing oneself not lying to oneself, it is very hard. If only the world can believe that our fears creates our reality. We may not be there, but we can always imagine it. It is not just possible to have my dream, it is necessary that I have it. Walking in the dark has one mystery in it, which is finding that one small peak that leads to daylight. Embracing oneself into a dream is a must, not an option. Though one might reach the small peak of light, but one could not see it if their eyes are blindly closed. That one small step after another shines all the bright lights around the skies. So shoot for the moon, even if you miss. You’ll end up falling on the stars. What would I do without my dreams? All I have to do is make them true. For they are mine.
"Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them". (Shakespeare).
While walking into the shadows of life, things might have missing pieces that needs to be filled. Or it could be damaged so it needs to be fixed. That’s where actions come in, falling in love with the process in order to find and fix these issues, that will improve and adjust this process to be better. Creativity of the heart and mind is not complied only in the sense of thinking and feeling. It is also in taking the action to make that greatness of an idea, and putting it into life. Tell yourself all the time: YOU ARE A DIFFERENT KIND OF A PERSON; YOU WALK WITH A DIFFERENT KIND OF A SPIRIT. ON A DIFFERENT KIND OF A PATH
It’s not what we have that values us, it’s what we do with what we have that values us. It takes a lot of heart to seek passion and take it to duty. Whenever there is an argument falling between the heart and mind, we should listen to our hearts. Because where my heart is, will be my treasure also. Studies show that 80% of Americans goes to jobs that they don’t like. Jobs that makes them sick. If you can write, THEN WRITE. if you can sing than sing, and if you can PAINT then PAINT, because that is given to you. Only you and I and everyone within themselves can find that one thing that their hearts follow. That thing is the most that we all should do and be hungry for, and deliver to the outer world because it been given to us. In a world filled with so much creative potential, it is dangerous to assume that all the good ideas are found at the top. To grow the creative confidence, create a culture of innovation. Draw on the power of multidisciplinary teams, encourage those around you to build on the ideas of others, and lead in a way that multiplies the capabilities of everyone.
FIGHT FOR WHAT IS YOURS
Daring to take initiation steps into something is walking on a path of fear and lonely thoughts in the dark. Courage is what’s being built during this process, so that the dark can be adopted and finding the light becomes part of the process that you have to go through. The light is what frightens us more than our darkness. Part of walking a different path from others to create the new light. It is a must to think outside the box, to not just create something new, but also to make it unique and different. To conquer all the usual and come up with the unusual. To be inspired is to start that one spark to ignite the crazy creativity, but to do so there should be that motive also. Falling in love with the process where the heart is involved as much as the mind. The great will of achieving something might fall in an argument between the heart and mind, at this point we should listen to the heart. Because the heart doesn’t fall into confusion thoughts, it falls into the feeling. And where our hearts are, is where our treasures will be also.
