It is difficult to argue with Stephen Hawking about this…even though I want to.
Watching The Theory of Everything inspired me to let go of my many excuses…
But, I have failed too many times.
But, nobody wants my work.
But, I don’t know what to do next.
But, people will laugh at me.
But, I don’t have connections or anyone to help me.
Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way, also reminded me that the success of creative work is the work, not the fame, or the fortune, or what the audience or critics might say about my work.
If there are things inside me that want to be born, why would I shame them into silence with my excuses?
