Often our creativity is confined and limited by fear. Fear is one of the largest motivating factors in why or how we respond to things in our lives. Fear prevents us from achieving all God has created us for.
Everyone faces fear, a few people confront fear, but the best creative people use fear to be their fuel.
what others think about us
we’re not good enough
we’re not talented enough
our ideas will not be embraced
our ideas are not good enough
whether or not we have what it takes
if people will know we don’t have it all together
letting people down
and the list goes on and on…
I am so thankful that God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of a sound mind. We have the ability to turn to Him, to give it all to Him, and to let Him guide our steps and – thus – free ourselves to be creative. Fear forces us towards faith which can be inspiration for some of our best creative concepts.
If we are not experiencing fear, we are not taking chances. When that is the case we move away from being creators.
