Why Every Creative Entrepreneurs would be sacked


Why Creative Entrepreneurs would be sacked from their local supermarket within 1 week!

Warning: comes with some seriously harsh reality

What’s wrong with you? What’s wrong with all us Creative Types? Why do we have this urge to express ourselves?

Why do we expose ourselves to harsh comments, ridicule or laughter. Or worse. With a shrug from  – I couldn’t care less –  shoulders?

By the way, we are our Very Own Best Mean Criticaster, we don’t need anyone else to do that for us!

Yes, there might be applause, good reviews, an award even. But after the applause, it’s back to business. Giving in to that urge to create. Back to your designs, events, filming, art, singing, writing, cooking, research or whatever creative form that has Chosen You as Their Prime Victim :-)

Why don’t you just quit and get an easy job in some office? Seriously! I bet you’ve been thinking the exact same thing.

Why bother with the doubts and the fear of failing, the lack of money or certainty? When you could be perfectly happy filling in forms from 9 to 5. Or sitting at the cash register of your local supermarket.

I know why!  

Because within 1 hour you would have rearranged the aisle with Herbes-in-a-Jar, invented an ingenious way of stacking loaves of bread and designed a new form people could actually understand.
Your new colleagues will not like you very much. You will be sacked within your first month. 

I’m sorry, but you’re stuck with your urge to create, to explore, to innovate.

Do you think that’s horrible news?
No it’s not. It’s wonderful. You are here to bring change, beauty and joy. How amazing is that? 

Let this year be the year that unites your creative urge with the action it so clearly deserves.
