WARRIOR OF PATIENCE 

Do you ever feel down and worry you’re going to be stuck there? Don’t worry, that’s a common feeling and one you should let go of. Everyone’s life is full of peaks and valleys. Just know that you’ve felt happiness before, and that you’ll feel it again. Trust in your journey, and let your happiness come from the path you are on. I know it’s easy to say but taking action or even truly understanding why you aren’t happy can be difficult.

There are typically two ways we feel down and stuck. The first is that we adapt a sense of security that holds us back. Maybe we have a steady job that pays well, but we aren’t truly  content there. Change is a scary thing, but if you want to be happy you have to learn to be a little more adventurous and make a leap into the world. Don’t let feeling secure be the reason you’re unhappy. Security is nice, but it’s not worth holding yourself back.

The second reason people can feel miserable is because they are trying to force an outcome. Sometimes what we think needs to happen, really doesn’t. We often times work so hard to put something together, and put in more effort than we know we should, only to watch it all fall apart. Sometimes you just need to walk away and find a different path to the goals you set your eyes on.

On this episode of Creative warriors we are joined by Dr. Anna Akbari, who really understands the mind of a creative. She explains in detail how people hold themselves back, and what society expects of us in order to really be successful. She emphasizes that we need to be authentic, we are being judged constantly, and at the same time we really have to change ourselves to appease the masses.
