Aren't you afraid to fail/not outdo your last success?
This video has been a real revelation to me for many years. I return to it occasionally to remind myself that the genie is on the outside. As much as it is a great feeling to think that the genius is me – is in me, it is a dangerous notion when the little bugger does not show up to work when you want.
Being afraid to fail today or to be unable to outdo your yesterday is a crippling, odious sentiment. We must always find mechanisms to interrupt the spinning of those gears, to disrupt those thoughts. I hope that this video helps.
Sometimes you have to sit and wait for the words to come
Sometimes the words come raging, barreling through you
Even when you are not quite ready for them
And pass you by
To haunt you
There at the edge of your reach
Beyond where your fingers can touch
What do you do then?
Fear not the failure
Fear not the success
Nothing happens if you're not there.
