It's a challenging world out there.
You can live on the surface, or you can live with substance.
All around me, I see most Creative Folks slowly decaying, burning out, lacking awareness, vision, motivation, mindset, and purpose. They can be worried about the number of followers they got and scroll mindlessly, falling victim to content that makes them upset, reacting about how others profit, copy, or do poorly according to some ethical standards. At the same time, they defend their ideals with a blaming Instagram story.
Yet, "they" can't get to second guess nor provide solutions. Failing to show much ability to push others forward to help them to heal, do better, or succeed. It's as if they are in love with the pain, with a meaningless fight, lashing out at an invisible enemy, with hate and outrage in the name of justice. Yet, they can't seem to develop compassionate, articulated, and solid solutions to the wicked problems society and the planet face. They can't get their thoughts together correctly because they are constantly stressed and worried, and to be honest; I don't blame them; I am like that just as well sometimes.
But when I realized it made me angry, I knew it was not about them; it was about myself.
Because when I complain about something, that means I have chosen to do or accept that thing as I perceive it to be, and therefore I'm disrespecting myself by reacting and not responding. And I'm telling you there is one thing I am tired of in my life, which is reacting incongruently from a place of fear.
And that's why I chose to create content and courses because I believe that creatives can create compassionate, articulated, and solid solutions to solve those problems and make the world a cool place. We got that stuff! It's all around us! We can empower each other to grow, provide, trade more fairly, make more of what works and improve what's already there. And we need this growth, those experiences, this knowledge now more than ever to become a powerful force for ourselves and for others.
I want you to grow into a Creative Genius.
That's what I want for myself and for yourself. I know that if I help you, you will help me. If I teach you, it will teach me. It's just the basic Law Of Karma.
So people might ask, Renaud, why did you not specialize in making tutorials, building brand systems, create typography, create sick advertising, and "premium" product visualization?
Because this will teach you to work with your hands, and many have hands around us for sure! And there is plenty of content about that already, which will be deprecated in a few years anyway. So I wanted to join the big boys and hit the fan for "evergreen" content. This approach can help to teach you to work with your head. And fewer can control their head around us, unfortunately. It will teach you to work with your heart. And fewer can serve their heart; it's not "profitable" until it becomes "profitable".
I haven't seen many people who can strive with their heads and hearts together, and I mean genuinely strive with their heads and heart together.! I don't know about you, but I see very few on a potential shortlist for that.
As creatives, we are creating, designing, and promoting the things of the world! We make this world run! And yet we complain about it, and yet we don't have the guts to try to change it. So my goal with building courses is to teach you and teach me to work with hands, head, and heart together because I have faith that it will make you happy, prosperous and successful.
I want to see Creative folks motivated to grow to make their vision come true, acting congruently on their purpose with a strong awareness and a solid mindset.
I'm tired and sad for those around me, lacking purpose and vision, trading it for a short-span social media high. Shackled, destroyed, restrained our dreams have been. We have been trained inappropriately about creativity, poetry, and science. Making us believe that things are too difficult, not possible, too hard, too long, that there is too much competition, and that our ideas and expression don't matter. Here is the invisible enemy again, and I'm telling you, this enemy isn't human, it does not even exist.
I want to empower us to be creative, take action, be happy, and become productive fearless members of society who can hold true to their values. It doesn't even have to be complicated! We can create and design it to be easy.
Because tomorrow I want to see you as a Creative Warriors of the mind bravely playing the field. Providing your best game, trading your value to the world fairly, and elevating your consciousness for a better future for the planet. numen.
