5 quick messages to set you on the right path

There are so many great motivational messages floating on the internet.

Some of them have helped me when I didn’t feel like picking up my camera.

Check them out…

They’ll get you back on your feet.

“It’s Not Whether You Get Knocked Down, It’s Whether You Get Up.”- Vince Lombardi

Do you feel the power in it?

Amazing, right?

Here is a second one that had an impact on me.

“If You Are Working On Something That You Really Care About, You Don’t Have To Be Pushed. The Vision Pulls You.”- Steve Jobs

So true!

When I read it for the first time I was in Austria on a short trip shooting photos of the mountains. The area was so beautiful that I was pulled in…

Another master piece is the one below.

“People Who Are Crazy Enough To Think They Can Change The World, Are The Ones Who Do.”- Rob Siltanen

I have it on my wall, right in front of me so that I can look at it everyday. I love it.

Another very powerfull message I found few yers ago was when I was struggling to keep up with the “good work” as many would say. I was in the middle of my 365 days photography project when it hit me and I wanted to give up.

“Failure Will Never Overtake Me If My Determination To Succeed Is Strong Enough.”- Og Mandino

It steared my thoughts to another direction and I kept going with the project.

And the last, probably the most important message is the following…

“Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them.” –Anonymous

This is so powerful that it gives me goosebump when I read it.

Anyway…

These messages are there for a reason! Read them everyday and I promise you, you perspective will change.

It’s simple as that…

P.S. There is one photographer I admire for his work but more importantly for his ability to push me out of my confort zone.

His name is Chris Burchard and with his recent training on CreativeLife the “The Outdoor Experience“, he proves that there is much deeper meaning behind every little action, trip, story and photo we take.

If fact, he is a real example of what happens when you go outside of your confort zone.

In his training he talks about how important this is and many other things that makes us who we are as photographers and why are we taking photos in the first place.

Anyway…

Give Your Photos Life!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” — Don McCullin

So true!

You can literally take thausands of images but if none of them has certain wibe or feeling, it’s unlikely anyone will connect to it…

Shoot with your heart not your eyes…

Best,

Libor…

P.S. Give your photos life, so that people stop when they see your images… If it’s while they scrolling through their Facebook feed or on Instagram.

You could make your photos stand out if you follow these simple techniques Ben Willmore teaches in his amazing training…

Here is a link to it…

About the photo:

I took this photo in Limbricht village on the way to Born. It was a cold, frozen morning with the blue sky. I was waiting for the sunrise while taking few photos around…

 

Stop Dicking Around…

Why are you STILL dicking around avoiding doing that really important thing you know you gotta do? – John Carlton

Can you releate to this quote?

I certainly can… I used to be doing all kinds of things just to avoid the ONE thing that really mattered.

As a result of that, I was busy instead of being productive.

Here is the thing… You can be busy whole day long, checking off the to-do-list, but if that one important thing doesn’t get done, you’re not progressing anywhere.

For example…

I would spend hours post-processing my images just to avoid looking for new clients, even I knew they’re the livelihood of my business.

Do you see where I’m going with this?

Another example would be…

People spend days perfecting their portfolio when 99% of the clients don’t have trained eye to spot the tiniest details.

And so on…

Since I’ve realized there is a big difference between being busy and productive, my life changed dramatically.

So stop being busy and get that one important thing done. If it’s getting new clients or shooting new photos. Whatever it is, find it and act on it right now….

…and watch your life change for a better…

And If you want to know more… then this (totally unrelated to photography) training from the worlds most respected self development leader Brian Tracy, who has helped millions of people to improve the quality of their life and get them from point A to point B in the shortest period of time, is going to be the smartest move you can ever do in your life right now.

Why?

Because you’ll see an increadible change in your life…

Anyway…

He is the bread and butter… and below is the honey.
