24m | Aug 3, 2023

Welcome to Season 5 Episode 6 of Art Is... a podcast for artists, where we brainstorm the future of the art world and the creative industries.

In this eye-opening episode, Lauryn and Isotta venture into the heart of why resilience is essential, delving deep into its significance for artists. They meticulously explore the contrast between external and internal friction, spotlighting this often-overlooked topic that holds immense importance for artists and their creative journeys. 

Lauryn and Isotta take a fascinating detour by drawing parallels from an unexpected source: Arnold Schwarzenegger. While his journey might seem unrelated to that of artists at first glance, it proves to be an incredibly useful and intriguing example of resilience. Lauryn shares a captivating experience attending the TASCHEN Arnold Schwarzenegger event, celebrating his new limited edition book. Lauryn briefly delves into Arnold's story of unwavering commitment and dedication to his passions, moving beyond the naysayers from bodybuilding to acting, and finding success by being intune with his authentic path. 

Stepping through fear and embracing risk-taking become crucial topics of discussion, as Isotta and Lauryn explore the significance of internal dialogue in paving the way towards authenticity. Being receptive to 'friction' becomes an important skill they discuss in discerning between external vs internal blocks and self-imposed obstacles. Isotta shares her own experiences with this, revealing how she recognized and conquered certain creative roadblocks we all face.

The conversation then evolves into the realms of manifestation and inner work, uncovering the questions that lead to the discovery of one's authentic self and path. Reflecting on childhood passions and common interests with friends proves to be a valuable starting point for self-discovery. The episode culminates with practical insights on how to start manifesting in both life and creative work.
