Failure is part of the creative process.
If you’re afraid of it, you can’t really create.
When we read a book or see a play or a movie, it’s usually perfect. We’ll read lines over again or play a scene over and over in our mind. Reveling in it. Feeling it. Living it. It’s perfect. But it didn’t start out that way and being afraid of failure can stop creation.
Nothing Starts Out Perfect
There are rewrites, touch ups, even new actors put into place to make it look perfect. But don’t forget, there was a messy, raw start. There was probably frustration and some tears. And there were rewrites, probably many rewrites. Blooper reels for movies show us just how many flubs can happen before a masterpiece is completed. Because nothing starts out perfect.
