Do you ever think you just “aren’t good enough”? That you will be found out for what you are? I meet so many people that are great at what they do, but always apologising or belittling themselves and their work. Martha Grahams’ words always inspire me:
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique and if you block it, it will never exist though any other medium, and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes more alive than the others.”
