The key to being creative is to keep pushing aside the fear of failure. The fear of failure is constantly lurking along the sidelines of our creative life ready to pounce when ever we begin to think of taking that next step.
It can be easy to become discouraged because much of what artists actually do is like ditch digging. The process can be long an arduous. There are lots of small little steps you have to take on your way to something really extraordinary. It can feel like you are walking across the country instead of flying. Some times to just keep taking that next step in spite of what seems like halting progress is the bravest thing you can do.
