Overcome the Starving Artist Syndrome and Own the Value of Your Gifts

Overcome the Starving Artist Syndrome and Own the Value of Your Gifts

Click the above link for The Starving Artist Syndrome podcast
to learn how to override the starving artist syndrome with my guest Jessica Serran.
We’ll go through tapping sessions to help you clear emotional blocks around the vow of being invisible and honoring owning your gifts and allowing them to be seen and appreciated by your audience in the world.

It is your beliefs about your worthiness, your abilities and the messages that your family and society have projected
onto you that keep you in the “Starving Artist/Creative Syndrome.”
It has nothing to do with money or having to suffer or sacrifice yourself.
~ Marilyn O’Malley

This week Millennials & Money Cafe call was about Overcoming the Starving Artist/Creative Syndrome and Owning the Value of Our Gifts. While preparing for this call with my guest, artist, guide, and Psycho-Cartographer, Jessica Serran we discovered that there was so much more to this topic than we ever could cover in one call.  So we crammed as much information and solutions as we could in this teleseminar training. This is an emotional topic that we have bought into as the truth and Jessica and I help you see how your beliefs are keeping you broke, stuck and challenged as a creative.

The value you give your creativity and talent is connected to how deserving and worthy you feel to receive the rewards it offers you through the exchange of appreciation, pleasure, and payment for services. If you don’t feel “good enough” or “worthy of receiving” you will give away your product or services for free or for very little.

You are a starving artist/creative/entrepreneur in the eyes of society if you are an “unconventual creative.” This is such old thinking! If this were true we wouldn’t have Apple computers/watches/phones, FB, Oprah, or successful independent filmmakers, musicians, authors, painters, sculptures all over the world today.

But this belief and mindset are running like a quiet virus and I want to STOP IT.  What does fitting in get us? NOTHING – BORING!  If you are an artist/creative who believes you have to sacrifice your material well-being or rebel against your family in order to focus on and achieve success, wake up and smell the bull-crap. This outdated, yet still current psyche is a long time ago group consciousness gone romanticized.

NOTICE WHAT YOU BELIEVING THAT IS NOT TRUE ABOUT BEING AN ARTIST, A CREATIVE, AN INNOVATOR!

THERE ARE MANY WEALTHY UNCONVENTIONAL CREATIVES AND ARTISTS.
(Rembrandt, Charles Dickens, Andy Warhol, Steve Jobs, The Beatles, Deepak Chopra, Oprah…)

THEY BECAME SUCCESSFUL AND WEALTHY BY NOT DRINKING IN THE NEGATIVE COLLECTIVE  COOL-AID THAT WOULD LIMIT THEIR ABILITY TO BE CREATIVE. THEY UNDERSTOOD THEY WERE UNIQUE AND HAD VALUE TO OFFER WHETHER SOMEONE AGREE WITH THEM OR NOT. THEY VALUED THEMSELVES AND HONORED THEIR GIFTS AND PASSIONS!

Your passion is your pleasure! It is your calling to live your pleasure!
No one is like you! No one else can know what that means for you and you can’t know that for another.
You’re here in this world at this time, with your skills, talents, and gifts for a reason, be proud and productive.

This starving artist syndrome is not only in fine art but runs through any creative individual; authors, musicians, inventors, innovators, entrepreneurs, visionaries, designers, filmmakers…

I’d love to hear if this was helpful or your thought or comments.
