Sometimes I hear people say they don’t think they are good enough to continue on some creative pursuit. It does not matter if you are or you aren’t. You only have to do it for the joy of doing it. That is all that matters. It does not matter if nobody else likes your work. They are not in charge of your life. They don’t know what steps it takes to get to where you are going.
The pleasure of life is the trip, not getting there. Goals are only important to keep you on the road. They are not the be-all and end-all. Winning, selling, publishing, starring or anything else is not important. Only the effort to continue on the journey is important.
No effort equals no life. simple as that.
