You’ve got to back yourself.

A few years ago a I was talking about a big project I was trying to make happen with a friend of mine and they said to me:

“You’ve got to back yourself”.

It was very useful to hear the obvious stated. If I am not standing 100% behind my own idea then what chance does it have?

Yesterday I was talking with another friend about making art. I was at risk of going down a black hole of uncertainty and they said:

“Don’t do that to yourself. You have to stand behind whatever it is that’s interesting to you and say ‘that’s my thing.’”

Friends are awesome.
