Rapid Recharge Markers of Growth

When was the last time you looked through some of your old journals or sketchbooks?

I ask because I have been doing a lot of looking at old sketchbooks recently. One reason is I’ve gotten to teach a class I have never taught before, Conceptual Drawing. I LOVE THIS CLASS!!!! It has given me more time to drawn and think about how I have grown as an illustrator and a designer. Even how I have grown as a thinker/problem solver.

The other reason is I was asked to speak at Mindset Reboot and talk about how Mindset work is a daily practice. And BOY is it. I kept thinking about how my mindset is really critical to my continuous practice of art.

I’ve regularly had unreasonable expectations and had less fun because I wouldn’t allow myself to make mistakes or messes.

Have you ever been like that? So hard on yourself it stops your practice of something?

As I was prepping for the talk at Mindset Reboot, I started seeing a pattern.

Every time I was being stretched in my illustration style or with my drawings I would draw rocks.The rocks are like markers of growth for me. They show up when I start to feel not capable. I draw them and robots when I am feeling like I need a pick-me-up and boost of confidence. I will leave something for tomorrow. I hope you come and bring some old sketchbooks to look through. Maybe you will find a pattern in what you’re drawing.

The Accelerant Program:
At Recharging You, we know that you want to be a focused, confident entrepreneur with clear direction. In order to do that, you need to get out of your head and learn from other creative entrepreneurs. The problem is you're a solopreneur with limited knowledge and experience on what your next steps need to be which makes you feel uncertain and alone.

I believe every entrepreneur should be supported, challenged, and encouraged as they grow their business. I understand how overwhelming and demanding building a creative business can be because I have been growing my business for over 20 years.

Join the Wait list and find out more. So you can stop being stuck and doubting your value and your decisions and instead start seeing growth in your mindset and in your business.
