Your ultimate goal should be partners with your ultimate fear. - Lionel Suggs
At the heart of all anger, all grudges, and all resentment, you'll always find a fear that hopes to stay anonymous.”
Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scar you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it. - JoyBell C.
Life lessons and comedy lessons are often similar, if you're doing it right that is. I'm thinking people have a hard time understanding their fears because from what I have witnessed they can't get past that second or third question....why?
Why am I doing this? I'm lifting rocks on fear, I'm gonna see what's under there and help talents that need to free themselves of the cold creative killing grip of it...including myself.
Why? I think fear is crippling to an artist. Especially when you're first starting out, but anytime of course.
It has the dark negative potential to freeze up the creative process.
Fear won't allow you to put forth the full effort necessary to see your vision through.
Why? It will inhibit your vision, it will always be cloudy , inconsistent and unsatisfying.
Why is that bad? An unsatisfied artist will get frustrated and ultimately quit or create crap and sellout to the easy, and everyone knows easy is not art. And it won't make anybody want to see what you produce more than a sampling. Easy gets old to an audience.
A few 'gets' to get started on getting over fear.
Get honest.- Get in the moment.- Get a vision.
- Get more positive things in your life.
Now get going on this and go get'em.

“I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.”
