The truth about discipline…and why it might be blocking your creativity

Why is it that some people seem to get so much done, while others struggle to finish what they start?

The answer is rarely exciting: Discipline is the key.

But why does it seem to come naturally to some and not to others?

Maybe this is something you can relate to:

You read all kinds of how-to articles about productivity, creativity, and inspiration, all hoping that there will be a golden nugget of wisdom in there somewhere – that one piece of game-changing advice that will tell you how to develop the discipline you need to write your album, finish your manuscript, or learn how to paint.

Except that the answer you’re looking for feels elusive. Maybe the advice out there doesn’t quite apply to you. Or you never believe you know “enough” to get started on your art, so you end up spending more time reading other people’s content rather than focusing on your own creative output.

Maybe you have a notebook full of ideas. You never feel short of inspiration, but time? Forget it:

You worry that you’ll never be able to execute all of the amazing ideas you have within you because you’re always running out of time.

You try to fit too many things into a single day, or you pressure yourself to complete huge pieces of work within an unrealistic time frame.

Or, you make the time to work on your art, but your life is so hectic that when you do have a bit of breathing room on your schedule, all you want to do is rest because you’re so burned out.

And yet you tell yourself, “If only I could find a way to just work on the things I love the most.”

The poetry…
The screenplay…
The acting…
The painting…
The music…
The drawing…
The novel…

Whatever form your inspiration takes, you can’t get around the fact that your art needs you to show up for it consistently. Otherwise it won’t be able to come to life.

But the problem with a lot of motivational advice is that it has a one-size-fits-all approach, as though discipline looks and feels exactly the same for everyone else – which it doesn’t.

The truth is that your style of discipline, commitment, and focus is as unique as your artistic style.

How you commit to your creativity can be found through trial and error, experimentation, and a little patience. After all, you need to give things time to see if they really work for you.

But you don’t have to feel you’re throwing all kinds of things out there to see what sticks. After all, who has time for that?

Instead, astrology can help you get to the heart of your style of discipline. Did you know that? It may sound counter to what people assume about astrology, but this ancient practice goes much deeper than what you read about in a daily horoscope about love and work.  

If you use it correctly, astrology can help you understand yourself better so that you can prioritize your art in a way that is more effective, focused, and productive.

Of course, you still need to show up and do the work no matter what.

If you’re ready to show up, commit to your artistic practice, and build momentum with your creativity, I invite you to book an astrology reading with me so that I can give you the road map you need to get going.

Let’s get started.

Until next time,
