Again, this is behavior that is triggered by fear. I have other posts about fear; but this post is about moving beyond fear and simply moving forward. First allow me to review:
- Be courageous – Saddle up in spite of your fear
- Stop playing chicken
- Stop hiding behind Photoshop
- Learn to draw
- Learn to paint
Today I’m adding another one: Get off of the sidelines and jump into the game–in other words, Just Do It.
Again, this will require that you just Kick Fear in the Rear. Draw and paint fearlessly [you don’t have to show anyone–be willing to throw the messes away.] When you fall, get back into the saddle and do it again–and again–and again. Finally, you will do something that you actually like and that will be the beginning of the rest of your life.
