Today’s quote:

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce

  1. I’m really feeling this now, as I get better I see other people get better and surpass me. Yet I keep on and that’s the only way we can improve.

      I think it’s really about fully committing and having an eye on what you want to achieve, and then taking one step at a time to get there. What others (can) do doesn’t matter at all – or so is the theory (I know it matters to most of us at one time or another ;)).
      All the best for your work!
