Creativity takes courage. A creative life is akin to a hero’s journey, where your mission is to share your personal brand of magic with the world… over and over and over again. It’s thrilling. It’s daunting. It’s complicated.
The Creator Mindset Map identifies universal experiences — Hope, Fear, Grit, Glory — and offers affirmation, inspiration, and guidance along the way. It’s okay to be exactly where you are; we’re in this with you.
Things feel hopeful — you’re optimistic about your work or a brand new project. You know your idea has validity and, yes, you’re nervous, but more so excited to share it with the world.
Has it started to feel like too much? Are you coming down off the high of launching something and facing the reality of needing to do it again and again? This is where fear sets in.
The fear has passed for now, and you’re ready to attempt another project. You always knew your idea had merit, but you were just too burnt out to make it happen. It’s time to put yourself out there again.
This is when it all feels worth it — you’ve launched your work to the public and it has been well-received. You feel proud of the outcome of all your grit, of pushing past the fear, of always keeping hope. This is your moment… feel it.
