Today’s quote:

The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~ Sylvia Plath

Many artists I know are not very confident. Some quite openly admit to it, others put up a front to hide their self-doubt.
Deep inside, we all want to be liked, and we are all scared to fail. Fear of failure can sometimes lead to not even trying.
