The Writer's Lens - E30: For Every Creative, The Stakes Are Incredibly High
Inside every creative is an entrepreneurial spirit. Why? Because there's an innate desire to make something new. Something original. And when you have that kind of gumption, the stakes tend to rise. There is more at risk; more knowledge needed; and more confidence required to make your dream a reality.
Enter the fear of failure. For even if we do share our gift with others, we still face the fear of being mocked or laughed at. It's an experience that's relative to every creative, and as a writer, I know how that can paralyze a person - no matter how gifted or talented he is.
In this episode, I talk through that process of making my own leap into writing - only to realize how crowded the creative / entrepreneurial space really is. And even if we make it through the woods and back up the mountain to finish what we started, there's a whole other plane of challenges waiting there for us too. And plenty more people trying to make it there too!
So, as I said in the beginning, the stakes are high. And not everyone gets to the finish line first.
