Your plight is no different than any other successful artist or entrepreneur who consistently questions and doubts her own abilities, and who is confronted every day by the armies of distraction, resistance and uncertainty.
The prudent wage earner knows that the road he’s on will lead him to a predictable destination. However, YOU walk the road less traveled. Uncertain of where it will lead, yet confident you’re headed in the right direction.
Thank God every day that you chose this path in your life; the daring, independent life of a creative artist/trep—no matter how challenging it is. Because the alternative can be an endless traffic-jam of mediocrity—no matter how appealing it looks.
“The road to success is always under construction”—Lily Tomlin
