“A lot of artists give up because it’s just too damn hard to go on making art in a culture that by and large does not support its artists. But the people who don’t give up are the people who find a way to believe in abundance rather than scarcity.

They’ve taken into their hearts the idea that there is enough for all of us, that success will manifest itself in different ways for different sorts of artists, that keeping the faith is more important than cashing the check, that being genuinely happy for someone else who got something you hope to get makes you genuinely happier too.”

    Excellent insight here Sasha! Cheryl is spot on; practice seeing abundance, be grateful and you will be amazed at how happy you become and the doors which open up for you.

    Now, these doors might be VERY different than you envisioned lol….and in most cases, they are. But if you can suspend judgment, feel abundant, use your joy-creating talents and go with the flow, you will begin to take a magical ride through this life.

    As a guy who went from penniless to travelling the world for 2 years, I can tell you, the ride will be FUN if you practice seeing all abundance around you.

    Thanks for sharing!
