We live in a world where the powers that be continually broadcast subtle messages meant to make us feel like we aren't good enough, beautiful enough or "cool" enough.
Traditional media and social media often amplify those messages, especially when people compare their present lives to highly curated, idealized images of other people's lives.
Large companies make billions of dollars by creating and maintaining a strong desire in us that we need what they have to offer - if only we had the product or service that they had to sell, then we would be enough.
The truth is, you don't have to buy into those messages because they're completely false.
Your sense of self-worth has nothing to do with what they're selling.
Your sense of self-worth comes from within, from knowing that you're on the right path to becoming the best version of yourself.
Our sense of self-worth as artists isn't defined by how we compare to others or any form of external validation, it comes from passionately striving to become the best we can be and by continually creating authentic work.
When we compare ourselves to idealized images of others that we see on social media or on TV, we're buying into the "you're not enough" myth.
The best way to rebel against this overarching cloud of "you're not enough" that hangs over society is to change your mindset, to start believing that you are enough, at this moment, and by believing in your limitless power to create, grow and thrive.
When you start believing that you are enough, you start to take action toward making your dreams a reality, and that's when the magic starts to happen.
Unless you give away your power, no external force has the power to make you feel like you aren't enough.
Because the truth is, you are enough, at this moment, exactly as you are.
In fact, you're more than enough.
