“You can’t reach the top of the mountain if you are only a spectator.To do well you have to be more than just present.”

Lucy Waldron

Motivation to continue is my greatest strength and I am not one to give up. Let’s face reality; it’s difficult, if not impossible, to feel motivated all the time to gain the required knowledge to succeed. Technique or no technique everyone is able to become who they want to be through motivation. Don’t get me wrong some days like you I just want to put my feet up, eat chocolate and watch Netflix — and not even a good  film, but some crappy movie that you’re only watching because you’ve given up on being productive. Your only wish is to fill your brain with mind numbing entertainment. Hey, sometimes that’s what it takes to recharge your batteries. Who am I to disagree?

Productivity is an illusive concept when surrounded by ever changing technology which draws you away from your purpose. Of course when a deadline looms, with many depending on you, taking a brain vacation is not really possible.

You must take one big step and silence your inner couch potato and tune your brain to the task in hand.

To gain full concentration…

Silence your mind and environment with no technological devices to distract you.

And begin to compell yourself to your work, to gain confidence in your own abilities. Everyone expects you to dig deep and give 110% to your work…Seriously!? Even I know that this is impossible you can only give 100% or less. So don’t set unrealistic targets. As long as you stay true to yourself you too can reach your goal.

 My story

My imagination has always been an incredible driving force in my life and I have always enjoyed Textiles and Art from a young age. This love of Art and Textiles has stayed with me and developed and grown into a desire to pursue a career path where I can utilise my skills and passion in the Art and Design Industry. I have always found designing a good skill to have because you are able to be creative and use your imagination to produce something amazing using different mediums. Many may disagree…but I am motivated to show my talents and to become a famous designer who can inspire the masses to follow their passion cause you must be in the race to win it.
