Finding your inner artist, day 9: About being good enough and stopping negative self-talk

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.

When was the last time you didn’t even try, because you believed what you have to offer cannot possibly be good enough? Why did you believe this was the case, and who told you so? Yourself, or someone else?
