Embrace the End of Your Comfort Zone
As glass art entrepreneurs we want to challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and to never go back. Being an artist entrepreneur is incredibly rewarding, but we also know it can be really tough. But we are going to let you in on a little secret. Although scary, stepping out of your comfort zone, permanently, is the only way for you to truly grow as an artist and as a business owner. In today’s fast-paced world we cannot afford to stand still. We must constantly be engaged in change and renewing the way we do things. Marketing expert Seth Godin recently had a short, yet powerful post on this very same topic. Here is what Seth had to say:
The unknowable path
…might also be the right one.
The fact that your path is unknowable may be precisely why it’s the right path.
The alternative, which is following the well-lit path, offers little in the way of magic.
If you choose to make art, you are no longer following. You are making.
True greatness is found at the end of your comfort zone. Challenge yourself. It’s usually the thing you were the most fearful of doing that will bring you the greatest progress.
