Everyone is afraid of failure. Afraid that what they are doing isn’t good enough so they stop trying. Sometimes I feel that way with my business. It’s something that is so personal, it’s a reflection of myself and my art. Each business decision that I make it is like putting a piece of my heart out on the line and hoping that people like what I’m throwing out there. Because all that I really want to do is meet amazing people, to be a part of their story, take beautiful photos that they can treasure and remember a moment of their life with, develop as an artist and as a person. Man, there is a lot weighing on that dream.
That’s what this is all about.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed. Sometimes I feel like I want to be doing more than I am doing now. Sometimes I wonder if I’m doing things the wrong way. I worry because failure is uncomfortable. But we aren’t growing as people if we aren’t a little uncomfortable at times and beautiful things usually don’t develop from complacency.
It will happen, I don’t give up. And I am always working to fight the fear of failure.
Wow. So those are my thoughts for tonight…sometimes it’s nice just to write them down.
