Do you see yourself as the artist you are?
Are you dedicated to creating goods and services that you are proud of and can stand behind?
Do you strive for excellence and are unwilling to accept anything less?
Do you treat your work as the art form it is?
Do you think of your work, whatever it is, as your art?
Do you strive to perform at your highest level?
Do you focus on excellence?
Sure, you might not always act like the master you are. And sure, sometimes your words might betray you. But at the heart of you, do you see your artist? Can you see the part of your Self who is dedicated to getting your art, your work exactly right, and will not accept anything less?
Your work is Art. Treat it with the respect it deserves.
I’ve been learning that to treat my work as anything less than an art form is a detriment to my business and my brand. In not honouring the excellence my artist and my art demands, I am not being true to my ideals and standards, and ultimately not performing at the highest level I can.
Developing the artist within is a great marketing strategy.
Through focusing on getting our art exactly right we will build a reputation as a true artist, and a great person to align with, and invariably attract people who truly appreciate our work, and our standards of excellence.
Through being true to our ideals and standards, and honouring our art form, we can have what we desire. By focusing on developing our excellence our true fans will be born.
