I haven’t stopped working on my dream creative business…
I’ve just slowed down. For a couple of reasons…
🙋♀️ I started doubting myself.
I was never satisfied with the result and my inner critic and perfectionist took over. It took me 6 months to overcome this, but it’s finally happened—and it’s constant learning process.
🙋♀️ I’ve stopped practising.
As a perfectionist and an over-achiever, when I can’t accomplish something, I get upset. Not visibly, but internally. And this results in me procrastinating on doing the thing because I’m scared of the result. I’m trying to overcome this by implementing an “experiment” mindset, where I’m not putting such high expectations on myself.
So, here’s a checklist for both me and you. Let’s focus on our craft. Forget about opinions of others. Visualize our goals every day. Create our business plan. Be our big bold selves 🔥
I will start publishing my designs on a new account 👉 @studio.franka, within the next 2-3 weeks. I have A LOT of big things planned for it, and I’m hoping you’ll be there for the journey! You can go ahead and follow me there already 💛
And as always, I will be sharing my experiences, lessons learnt, and thoughts here, on @creatively.franka account. That way, I can have the two separated and it won’t cause me any more confusion 😅
I’d love it if you could let me know in the comments what you thought of my illustrations, it’d certainly help get my spirits up! 🌈
