Starting something new can be exciting at first, then morph into something that’s scary. Scary as in, “I don’t think this is going to work.”.
Is that the lizard brain? Is that fear?
Are you simply missing passion for this once ‘savior’ project, the one that was going to make all your dreams come true?
Whether you’re working on something that could change your life and the lives of those around you or you just had an idea, there will be fear.
Steven Pressfield destroys our excuses (all of us, and all of the excuses) in his book The War of Art.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an artist in the traditional sense or a businessman trying to make a dent in the universe or anyone doing anything else in the world, you owe it to yourself to read this book. And then to read it again. Buy the book already, and read it once a year.
And forget about fear; it’s going to try and stop you. It will always be there.
What you do with it is up to you.
