What Does Art Have To Do With Happiness?
Is there an important connection between ART and happiness?
If so, do you need to understand it in order to live a happy and fruitful life?
Well, let me ask you this, how many times have you asked yourself any of the following questions?
Is this all there is?
Who am I?
Where am I going?
Why am I here?
What is the purpose of life?
Do I matter?
What am I doing?
If you have, then chances are you are looking for happiness, and today, I’ll help you find a path toward it by understanding what happiness has to do with art.
So, what is happiness?
What are you looking for anyway?
There are lots of answers to that question given by much smarter people than myself, so instead of answering it I will ask you a question:
When was the last time you accomplished a task that seemed insurmountable?
Think about it. When was that?
Remember that junk drawer you FINALLY organized? ; )
How did it feel?
Pretty nifty, eh!
But… it takes more than understanding what happiness is to accomplish it.
In order for you to break through the barriers you run into in your daily life; like time, distance, money, laws, physics, etc., you have to do more than just meet these things head on.
You have to rise above them.
So, how do you do that?
Well, that’s where art comes in.
It’s in this process of transcending everyday life that you tap into that thing that makes you special. It’s here that you as an individual discovers how to resolve your problems of life and keeps you on track to accomplishing those insurmountable tasks.
You see, the things that stop you in your own life are different than what stops others in their lives. The problems might appear to be the same, but they never really are completely the same.
We each bring our own personal perspective, experiences and considerations to our problems. The beauty is we also bring those exact things to our solutions.
This is where art and happiness meet.
In order to rise above the unique barriers of your own life and achieve insurmountable things, you have to become something more than just yourself.
You have to become something extraordinary.
You have to become a person whose works shows exceptional creativity ability or skill.
You have to become an ARTIST.
Pretty great, huh?
So, what does art have to do with happiness?
Because you CREATE it.
And how do you create it!
You follow five simple rules!
1. You Accept The Challenge
2. You Define The Rules
3. You Master Your Craft
4. You Infuse Yourself
5. You Elevate Your Skill
Yay! With this new path you can succeed at accomplishing those things that at one time seemed impossible!
As always, I'll go more into each of these in the future!
But for now just know...
You CAN create a beautiful, fulfilling and successful future.
You can CREATE a life filled with HAPPINESS.
YOU can achieve great things!
Create your life.
You are an ARTIST.
I see it.
With great love and admiration,
