Acknowledge your fears while allowing your creativity to thrive

Instructions

  1. Get a pen and paper. Draw a big car with a front and back seat in it.
    The drawing doesn’t need to be perfect. Just keep it simple and according to your style.

  2. Put yourself in the driver’s seat.
    You can use a symbol or shape to represent yourself. You can also use a stickman and put your name or “ME” in it.

  3. In the passenger’s seat beside you, write down one thing that you’ve wanted to do.
    Maybe you’ve long been wanting to write, paint, sing or draw. It could also be something that interests you or anything you’re curious to do.

  4. In the back seat, write down all the fears that stop you from doing the thing you want to do.
    Perhaps you want to be a writer but are afraid you might not have the talent. You could also be an artist who is afraid you wouldn’t be appreciated. Think about what is holding you back from doing the thing that you want to do.

  5. Talk to your fears and say, “Every time we’ll go for a creative trip, remember that my creativity and I are the only ones who will be deciding along the way. You are allowed to have a seat, you are allowed to have a voice, but you are not allowed to have a vote.”
    Remind yourself of this speech every day, especially when working on your passion or something that interests you.
