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?
