A lot of people ask me what inspires you?
It is a question I don’t think I’m quite sure how to answer.
Sometimes I reach a point where I truly don’t know whether I am doing the right thing or not.
but that’s the beauty of it. I mean I get to experience things and work them out in all ways possible. I try different ways, go out of my way to create something new.
If It is a photo of a coffee cup I’d shoot it in different angles and try to see how it looks from many perspectives.
The thing with being creative has no right or wrong. It’s the way you feel about it.
As long as you are doing it(whatever that is) from the heart. Trust me it will be worth it.
“Picasso didn’t wait until he was Picasso to perform like Picasso.” – Robin Sharma
Most of us are waiting for something? A sign? for them to start doing the thing they actually love…
Whether you were a burger flipper, runner, photographer, painter…etc
Allow yourself to make mistakes. Stop being a perfectionist because there is beauty in flawed work.
You have no idea how.. Sometimes if something turned out to be too perfect it’s just dull… I mean there is nothing to it you know what I mean? because it’s just “too perfect”?
> Meet creative people, talk to them. Look at their work. It will give you some ideas.
>Practice makes perfect.
>You can’t expect something to go right if you don’t know how to do it.
>Work so hard until it comes out naturally.
I always say that “Rules are made to be broken.”
So break the rules and be a little adventurous.
Once you be who you are and love what you do, the right people will be drawn to you.
The time you actually believe in your work and love it.. People will notice that and they’ll show some appreciation. and when that happens it will make you want to create more, do more….
There is somebody for everybody.
So being who you are is the trick here.. Stop following trends and ‘whats in’… and just do you.. Be you..
Feed your eyes…
By that I mean, if you’re work is artistic, you need to feed your eyes with creative photos, open your eyes, try to notice the details in everything… You’ll see things differently with time.. I promise.
How to Stay Creative?
- Go Some place New
- Keep a note with you and write when ideas come to your mind/ My mom always says ( A bad ink is better than a good memory)
- Surround yourself with creative people
- Refresh your workplace or study desk
- Take a break
- Try new food/listen to new type of music… Don’t just stick to what you know..
- Never ever force yourself to do something that you don’t feel like doing.
