Right now I'm training with Eric Maisel to coach visual artists. He suggested to all of us that we check in each day with a statement about how our work matters. This seems so simple, but I have a feeling it will produce a growing sense of self-worth in myself.
If you are working with a coach, ask them if you can check in daily. Just write a sentence.
I matter. My work matters.
If you are working on your creative dreams alone, buy yourself a journal and write in even one sentence a day that you matter. Slowly those words will sink into your mind and become part of who you are. We all have a voice and a vision. And all of us count. Writing it down only confirms the fact.
I'll let you know how I feel after my daily check-ins. Let me know how you feel after yours!
