Every person is born an artist

In an era when the “creatively resilient” seem to be the ones thriving, it helps to remember that all of us have an ability to reinvent ourselves. Some people just have created a habit for doing that. To be a Change Artist is simply to reconnect to the archetype of the artist within us all, and that part naturally reinvents as necessary.

As Pablo Picasso, the famous artist, once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

As we become adults the discriminatory mind develops which can eclipse the creative spirit. As adults our job is to use our ability to reason, discriminate and make judgments in service of creativity, not to squash it. Be warned however, not to judge the judgmental mind. Without our ability to choose, focus and discriminate we would have no boundaries on our ideas and nothing would get done. We need a balance of both.
