A recurring thought and one I fight on a regular basis is fear.

Fear of failure.

Fear of not doing something right.

Fear of making a mistake.

And strangely enough fear of success can come into play.

I’m guessing that fear plays into a lot of artists’ lives as this theme keeps appearing in many quotes from writers, painters, sculptors, musicians and of course photographers.

miles davis quote

“Do not fear mistakes – there are none.”   Miles Davis

Mistakes are magnificent opportunities to learn new lessons. If you are not making mistakes you are not stretching and giving yourself the chance to become the best you can be.
