The Bookshelf Poem


The Artist's way is to
Show your work and
Start with why or 
A more beautiful question.
The art of noticing invites you to embrace
Paradoxical thinking, and 
Stillness is the key to practising
Essentialism: prioritizing your life around what truly matters.
If you think like a futurist, 
A 4-hour work week is enough,
Especially if you could master fifty proven ways to be persuasive.
Changing on the job will guide you to a new working identity.
All transformation is a question of willingness and
Mindset.
Compile your own little book of talent
And cultivate a new growth mindset. 
Gamestorming can be your path towards learning by
Leading from an emerging future with other
Rebels at work.
Cause rebels are the very salt of the earth
They never eat alone, nor do they think about what others do.
They are the business model generation with a
Value proposition design for the 
New business model "You".

The bookshelf poem was written according to the rules below. It is a playful attempt to integrate titles into a short coherent poetic feature. It was intriguing to observe how the concepts respond to each other, when placed in a new context and used as elements of a personal narrative.

Rules:
1. Keep the order of titles intact
2. Write it either in rhyme or in rhythm

Creativity, Clarity and Opportunity

The passion to create art brings with itself an unimaginable power of healing and beauty. Creativity can be seen as a wonderful prayer as it connects us directly to a higher consciousness. Tapping in its resources requires faith in our ability to be actively patient and confidence in the path that is revealing itself in sometimes mysterious ways. Great art comes from truth and doesn't need validation.  To create is essential if we wish to bring clarity to the realm of possibility. Possibilities are fuzzy, attractive, indefinite and alluring paths we can take. When we choose, we eliminate the noise imposed by less relevant (yet attractive) concepts and focus on what we feel is of value. Ideas come to life when acted upon, not simply recorded and safely placed in a drawer. Sharing them might feel vulnerable but at the same time, it brings us down to the arena of other creators. To be judged or criticized is to be seen, not just looked at. Once our ideas catch on fire, there’s an im

Creative Affirmations

When you find yourself in need of creative faith, affirmations may come handy. Grounding yourself in emotional stability and regaining the desire to get to work is essential. Here are a few affirmations that may to support you:  What I do is, first and foremost, a reward in itself.  I find joy in what I do.  What matters the most is what I do now, in the present moment.  Whatever I choose to do in the present moment, I do it with my full attention and dedication.  I am committed to the now.  I feel as if time does not exist.  I am constantly learning from the feedback I receive.  I feel I have the skills and capabilities for doing what I love. I feel whole.  ©REBELLICCA, 2021 As artists and creative entrepreneurs, we all need some support and reassurance when we feel our creative muse is slightly less present. Here is an often updated collection of notes-to-self, ideas and suggestions how to appease our creative anxieties so that we can keep doing what we love and enjoying the busines

What I've learned from Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic

Arrogant belonging: declare that you ARE, claim your place in the world. Liberate yourself from the desire to necessarily help others/be of service through your creativity; just make stuff for its own sake, for your own sake. If you love something, persevere. If you love something, believe it loves you back. Regain your curiosity, cultivate your inquisitiveness. Follow each clue, no matter how mundane. Chase every reference. Explore every spark of interest, no matter how fleeting it might be. (Your) Art matters and simultaneously it doesn't matter at all. State it out loud: I am an artist/writer/poet/creator. Rejection is not a valid reason to quit, neither is the lack of audience. Inspiration and ideas seek you to manifest them. Show it you are ready and capable of doing that. Be ready, show up, do. Make commitment to the doing, not to the outcome. As artists and creative entrepreneurs, we all need some support and reassurance when we feel our creative muse is slightly less presen
