“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” – Frank Herbert, Dune
The world is full of scary things: potential nuclear war, failing infrastructures, clowns (shiver). You can either let your fear overwhelm you or you can recognize the enemy within these fears. This conspirator creeps in the shadows of the unknown. It thrives in social media negativity. Worry and frustration are its greatest weapons. I’m speaking of Distraction. It’s coming for you and your creative dreams.
Fight back! Don’t let your fear distract you from achieving those creative dreams. They’re
important. For every creative dream achieved, a new one is born. You are an inspiration to someone. They look to you to lead the way. Don’t let them or yourself down.
Let Go! Understand there is very little in this world you hold sway over. Focus on the things you can control: your emotions, your reactions, your creativity and will
Be Fearless! So what if you fail? Put a bandage on that scraped knee and try again. You are a warrior!
