Misconceptions are simply wrong beliefs or ideas. Wrong ideas seem to be one of the most common commodities out there. These misconceptions or viruses are not only common but they’re also branded or packaged. Unfortunately, this generation have been fed or infected with these viruses, and pathetically, these viruses reproduce at an unbelievable rate.
These misconceptions are so numerous such that even if I’m to write a full book about them, there will still be more to write about! I like to handle things in bits or simple form. I intend to debunk a viral misconception in this article. You might have heard of this misconception a dozen times or more – “Wait for inspiration”. You’ll often here stuffs like – “Don’t kill yourself, it will come (Inspiration/ideas) itself)”. This misconception, miseducation or wrong data, has prevented millions of people from realizing their true potential.
Yes, ideas or inspirations mostly knock when we least expect BUT you need to understand the fact that you’re the one in control not the flaky idea. You need to put yourself in a productive state always. A state that can make you produce what you want at the exact moment that you want.
Are you an artiste, writer, singer, architect, dancer, film producer or even an entrepreneur that somehow or sometimes lack the right inspiration to pull the trigger especially when you need to? Not to worry, the solution or cure to that infection is simple.
I’ve worked with a few artiste who find it difficult to come up with something vital especially when they need it.
Many ‘believe’ that they can only produce effortlessly when they use drugs or get drunk. This isn’t only a bad idea, it’s a ridiculous idea. No offence to anybody but I think it’s dumb NOT to be in control of your craft.
What I’m I trying to say? You are in absolute control of your craft! See your craft or gift or career as a weapon. As far as I know, people control weapons, weapons don’t control people! You need to assume complete control over your craft.
If You Don’t Or Can’t Assume Total Control Over Your Craft, You Aren’t Good Enough! – Mr Mih
You DON’T need the drugs or drink (alcoholic) to command ideas or inspiration, you need you to do the magic. Guess what? You’re the MAGIC! Success , in regards to extracting the best out of your craft requires you to be in absolute control of your mind.
Dominate your thinking to have an unbelievable CAN-DO attitude. You’ve to constantly believe that you chose that path, that path didn’t chose you. You get my message? You own that path (field/craft). You don’t need any of those external boost to do the work, what you need is intense focus!
Forget about the “waiting-for-inspiration” thing and assume control or responsibility! If it’s truly your path, you need not wait for anything, all you need to do is BOSS your craft! Even waiters at the restaurant don’t wait, they attend to customers. Go attend to your dreams. Your craft doesn’t own you, YOU OWN YOUR CRAFT!
