Lost your mojo? How to get it back.

Share:

After asking you all the question in my blog last week: ‘what stops you from completing creative projects’, I had some wonderful responses. Thank you!

I’ve created this video blog in response to a real issue that someone told me about, which touched me greatly.

It was a musician (I will call him Andrew) who put his heart and soul into making an album that nobody bought. That’s tough.

As a creative myself, I know EXACTLY how it feels when you’re trying your best to get your beloved projects out there. When you push hard to succeed, but things don’t turn out the way you wanted.
The knock on affect on our confidence, and on our self belief, can be hard.

I love the tenacity of creative people and it thrills me to see people caring enough about themselves and their passions to keep on going. And Andrew, I want you to keep going too… which is what this blog is all about.

And, what about you?

  1. It’s a bit embarrassing to admit, but what the hell: I sometimes listen to live recordings of my own concerts and daydream back!

  2. I love this blog Nicky, it’s so easy to get discouraged when our passion for what we are creating gets confused with whether we are ‘successful’ or not. I know that when I write simply because I love writing and not in order to achieve some goal, my voice comes easily and true – and then the success follows naturally – or not. But I am not attached to the so-called successful outcome because I am doing what I love and that is more important to me.

    1. Hi Rona, absolutely. It’s so easy to fall out of love with our creative projects when we push hard for a result. Keep following your joy and trust your instincts! nicky x

  3. This really speaks to me. I was so stuck back in September/October last year, because I had my confidence knocked for a failed JV, but when I reflected on the year at the end of 2013, it really shifted my mindset to the positive and I started writing again. Great suggestions, Nicky.
