We need to talk more about how much fear is involved on the road to greatness. And also, what it means to BE truly great. To me, true greatness is exposing your underbelly as you take that giant leap into the unknown. Daring to bellyflop in front of everyone in pursuit of your heart's longing. I believe that we are all authentic artists, and that sometimes we hide our true creative genius because what we really fear is not the disapproval of others, but the lack of belief in ourselves. I find that when I take the time to listen to the voice in my head, I almost can't fathom how demeaning I can be to myself. Oh please, please try to turn your back on the illusory nonsense of your mind and take that leap with all your heart!
yours in the midst of a spectacularly awkward and breathtakingly mindless mother of all belly flops.
