The Creative Ledge
Posted on January 16, 2009
Welcome to the Creative Ledge. This blog is for the artist and creative spirit. It is also for those called to lead creative communities or teams.
Creatives are a different sort. They are passionate, quirky and most of the time looking at the mountain from a different angle than others… ask me how I know. Sometimes they are misunderstood as moody, mistaken as detached or even labeled as “A.D.D.” Their brilliance is sometimes marred by their fear of failure.
In every endeavor to make great art or be an agent of change there is a ledge, a jumping-off place that usually involves risk. When the fear of risk is conquered, the ledge is your catalyst, the risk is your companion. Then you are on your journey to make a difference, to do something great.
Greatness is about the leap of faith. Faith says you can’t fly unless you jump. Fear says if you play safe, you can’t crash and burn. The truth is that you were born for the adventure. You were created to blaze a trail. Made to display the Glory of God like it has never been seen.
Be free. Take a risk. Be great.
