Have you ever stopped yourself from doing something out of fear? Have you ever looked at an opportunity and thought you weren’t good enough for it? These are emotional barriers and can be fed from our insecurities like fear, pride, or anxiety, just to name a few. These barriers will impede you from being able to convey your message clearly or reach your goals.
Self-awareness can be a big part of both realizing your emotional barriers, and overcoming them. When you think about putting your art, your techniques, online, how do you feel? Why do you think you feel that way? Do you think about the worst cases scenario, and if so, how would you deal with it?
In Emotional Barriers, Graeme will take you through the hurdles that can hold you back when trying to chase your dreams, and go through his Six Steps About Achieving Dreams, and his Six Tips to Overcoming Fear.
With decades of experience as a professional artist, Graeme knows what it means to overcome fear and nerves to put yourself and your art out there for the world. After creating Put Some Colour In Your Life, he got to see firsthand how artists could suffer from nerves and fear, and in turn, help lead them through it to produce incredible episodes.
As an added bonus, this section will also include notes from Graeme about presenting yourself and your art to audiences or in lectures, based on his personal experiences. When sharing your message, your art, or trying to sell, Graeme will offer advice and direction based on his decades of experiences in galleries, lecture halls, and studios.
