This morning I was hemming and hawing over submitting something to a contest. I had been feeling on the edge about it because I didn't think I was good enough.
Then I thought, "Is this fear of submitting worse than my greatest fear?"
Right at that moment, my greatest fear was for a dentist appointment that was coming up later in the morning.
Knowing my greatest fear at that moment diffused the fear-based thoughts on my art. I submitted my artwork within minutes after that.
This was exactly what I needed to get out of the fear space creatively. I hope that it will help you too.
Here are some questions you could ask yourself.
- What are you afraid of doing?
- Why haven't you done them?
- Is that fear worse than your greatest fear?
