The author of Eat, Pray, Love talks about “that book based on that movie”, how it made her question her own creativity and face the fear of disappointing her readers with a ‘dreaded follow up’. The only thing she ever wanted to be was a writer. Knowing she had no way to win with the next book pushed her to find inspiration for ensuring that her creativity inspired success. She did not give up and spare herself the pain…because writing is her ‘home’.
We have to reflect, become oriented and learn to be courageous about what is ‘home’ for us. Failure and success catapult you, but in different ways. Find something worthy to do that you will love more than your fear. Wow.
