“If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
~ Erica Jong
Sometimes it’s scary to go for your big creative dream, so you think,
“I’ll play it safe. I’ll wait till I
have more training
get more clarity
save up more money
figure it out
find the courage.”
The truth is, inaction is a decision too.
When you choose
not to write or paint or compose today,
not to submit your work,
not to take on the scary-big opportunity,
not to approach the artist you’ve admired since childhood,
not to get coaching to advance your career,
not to invest in your dreams…
You’re choosing a life where you are
Not doing the work you love
Not building your creative career
Not being seen
Not expanding and growing
Not getting what you want
Not satisfied with your life.
Is that the life you want?
Be willing to risk.
Be willing to succeed.
