Yliana is a constant doubter, doubting from herself to the universe itself. She is an artist from Luxembourg who likes to create, but doesn’t see herself as a GREAT artist, just somebody who is willing to go beyond her comfortable zone to get more of what she loves, which is passion itself.
In this episode, Yliana discusses:
-How doubt is something that is prevalent with creative people and how it never seems to go away.
-A bit of history in her tattooing career and why she decided to go into music.
-How her tattoos are for pleasing other people, but her art and music is for pleasing herself.
-How she feels after just releasing her first EP.
-How she had to find a balance between the tattoo artistry and the music.
-Her advice for anyone who already defines themselves in one particular field of art or creativity that is thinking about trying a completely different form of art.
-How the main thing that held her back and still does to some extent is her ignorance in knowing what she wanted.
-How her ego held her back from pursuing music because of the imagined limitations it placed on her.
-The fear that people have to jump into something unknown, but how we should all do it anyway.
-How simply thinking positively isn’t enough — you have to take action.
-Working on and mastering her EP with a Grammy winner.
-How doing art and tattooing gives her balance and a form of meditation, which leads to peace of mind.
Yliana’s Final Push will inspire you to understand that it is YOU who decides what to do with your life.
“Music is the way I can express myself in the best way.”
“Music for me is my healing tool.”
“I think I found myself some sort of balance.”
“First of all you need to believe that you can do it.”
“We all have a different way of learning. We all grow in a different rhythm.”
“Just let that little light from the end of the tunnel shine through and guide you to create something.”
