I love this quote by Joseph Chilton Pierce about living a creative life because I am forced to dig deep and ask myself questions such as, "What is attached to the fear of being wrong? How do I define living a creative life? What will happen when I choose to lose the fear of being wrong?" I want to share my thoughts with you and I hope you'll dig deep too.
What is attached to the fear of being wrong? To me, criticism and rejection are attached to the fear of being wrong. These reactions shouldn't scare us but rather, they could possibly inspire us, because criticism and rejection do not change who we are as an artist. They'll only propel us to be better artists. I welcome rejection because I know around the corner someone else is embracing my work. My words will still remain my words and my art will still exist no matter what others think of them. I've come to the conclusion that as an artist and writer, there will be people that will either like or dislike my work and that is okay .
What will happen when I choose to lose the fear of being wrong? It's simple, you'll have one less hurdle to go through, which will leave you with more room to be creative. Therefore, I encourage you to create fearlessly.
