The Artist Way: Reviving your sense of confidence

This is a post by Shitta Athena Prisca... Don’t allow fear of culture, religion, society hold you back from foraying into the pathway you chose for yourself!

Cofidence

Our failure isn’t a pitfall. It is meant to be a strategy to a greater picture. I failed once, I failed twice or more... these are only steps we ought to take in finding our true potentials.

To conquer our pitfalls we need to believe that our negative opinions are not the truth. You would be surprised what our subconscious mind blurts out; no matter how you evade it, it will push on to make your perfect look imperfect.

So you took your first sketch it says so awful, you sang your first gig it says your voice is wack, you took your first picture it says crappy... that’s your negative thought playing on your mind.

Choose to recover and take charge, you are not dumb, crazy, careless or silly. All you are is scared to fail because you don’t believe in your artist mind.

Please fall and get back on your feet, it's allowed. Stop blocking the creative child in you by being safe and scared of losing. Your enemy is your mind. Once you overcome that scar, you'll be ready to take a try and be perfect…

No one assured you ease in your pathway. Even the bible preaches hard work. Affirmation will help you discover an able self, you always had in you.

Now I implore you to take that step you couldn’t hitherto take. Don’t allow culture, religion, society hold you from foraying into the pathway you chose for yourself...

As Irish rock band, U2 said in their song, 'Iris', “free yourself only you could see yourself’’
