What Do I Want?

If there was a fairy godmother who could wave a magic wand and provide you with whatever you needed to accomplish your artistic or creative goals and projects, what would you ask for?

Now I’m not a fairy godmother, but one thing I am learning is that you have much more of a chance of getting what you want if you actually ask for it in the first place.

So here’s your chance to ask.

First, think through what you want to work on. List that as a goal or project in the form below.

Next, list the steps you can see now that would get you from where you are to where you want to go. List those steps below.

Then, out of that list, which are the ones you could use help with? Or what help would you need to accomplish those steps? Do you need resources – materials, money, time, etc? Do you need coaching, mentoring, instruction? Do you need encouragement, a helping hand, a place to work? What do you need or want?

I know we live in a world that seems to highly prize independence and doing it all on your own, but that’s not the best way to do things. By having the courage to ask for what you need, you could open the door for someone else to give what they have – which would be a blessing to them. So please – just go ahead and ask.
