In the heartland of Kansas City, Phillip Ortiz, a devoted husband, father, graphic designer, and artist, embarked on a transformative journey that broke through the barriers holding back his artistry and creativity. Under the guidance of Matt Tommey, an artist and mentor, Phillip discovered his path to prosperity. This engaging article tells the inspiring story of Phillip's transformation and how he found his creative and financial breakthrough.
Phillip's journey began in New Mexico, but it was when he moved to Kansas City a decade ago that he encountered a familiar problem for many artists - creative stagnation and financial struggle. Working as a freelance graphic designer and artist from his basement, he couldn't break free from a financial cap that seemed unmovable. Stress and frustration were constant companions.
The Turning Point
Two years ago, a friend sent Phillip a Facebook link to Matt Tommey's work. Initially skeptical, Phillip watched from the sidelines, wondering if it was just another empty promise. But something in Matt's message resonated with him. It was a message of hope, growth, and the possibility of breaking free from limitations. Finally, Phillip decided to take the plunge and join the Created to Thrive Artist Mentorship Program.
Discovering the Heart Modules
Phillip expected that as someone with years of experience in the field, he might already know much of what the program had to offer. However, the program's introductory "heart modules" took him by surprise. They challenged him to look deep within himself and examine how he viewed both his art and himself. It was here that Phillip realized a profound truth: his heart was not in the right place.
Aligning Vision and Provision
One key lesson Phillip learned through the mentorship program was that when he had a vision, he also had provision. In other words, if he had a clear sense of purpose and direction, he would receive what he needed to make it a reality. This revelation transformed his approach to art and business. By intentionally aligning his vision with God's plan, he found himself equipped with the resources and support needed for success.
The Lesson from Peter
Phillip drew inspiration from the biblical story of Peter, the professional fisherman who had toiled all night without catching a single fish. After encountering Jesus and receiving His guidance, Peter cast his nets once more, and this time, he had an extraordinary catch. The difference was simple yet profound: he followed a word from God.
Hearing God's Voice
Phillip's journey taught him that hearing God's voice and making choices based on that guidance were essential for stepping into his divine calling. He discovered that God had already provided what he needed, but it was up to him to listen and align his actions with God's plan.
A Message of Encouragement
In closing, Phillip encourages fellow artists: "You don't have to create from pressure; you can create from life, joy, and the goodness of God." His story serves as a testament to the transformative power of mentorship and aligning one's vision with divine provision.
