Fear

Fear is primal. you can use it as a creative force and as an inspiration, or you can use it to cripple and limit your creativity. It’s an emotion that can either propel you forward or slow you down. 

Most use fear in the negative way. They fear the unknown. They fear of being exposed and being judged for their work. They fear being wrong. This cripples you - you have to look at the other side of fear. The positive side. 

You can fear mediocrity and obedience - stillness and irrelevance - you can fear the fact that you’re wasting your days on something inconsequential, something that’s not creative. You can use that fear to fuel your drive - to get out and start - to create. The fear of being just another good employee - never making a difference in the grand scheme of things. 

Use fear to move yourself forward. Use fear to create.
