I’m always creating things and right before I’m about to press send I usually get this fear that runs through me. Fear that it’s not perfect. Fear that it’s a bad idea. But I realize now after 2 years of blogging every single day that it’s a normal thing to feel fear and I press send anyways.
Creativity provokes fear because creativity works with uncertainty. And uncertainty is one of our deepest fears.
Fear knows nothing about creativity. Fear works with the oldest part of the brain while creativity works with the newest.
The key to being creative is to acknowledge that fear is there but to never give it control.
If you give it control, you will never hit send.
Tolerance for uncertainty is the prerequisite to creative success.
