Stop Getting in Your Own Way

Don’t let self doubt scupper your dreams. If you want to be a writer, actor or artist, the only permission you need is your own. Nobody’s going to tell you when to start; you just have to wake up one morning and start doing the work.

And it doesn’t matter if your first attempts are a bit scrappy. Art is a learning process. Word by word, chapter by chapter, canvas by canvas, performance by performance, we hone our technique and find our voice through doing, not doubting.

We only get one chance at this life. So, don’t wait. Start working towards your dream today.

One thought on “Stop Getting in Your Own Way”

  1. Good advice. But you are more likely I think to produce a work of art, be it a novel or a painting etc, if it is not essential to your livelihood that it sells. I am fortunate that my book has been published and I hope it sells well. But , so far, writing is not my main job. I think a writer should want very much to be published but never be desperate to be published to make money
