Ah the age old question.
Am I talented enough? Should I be writing?
Self doubt loves to creep in when you are at your most strongest and when you are at your weakest. It is one of the reasons we are so vulnerable. Writing is an intimate process that requires you to really open yourself up to the masses. The same people who will pick apart your work and either love it or hate it.
While we all know that you can’t please everyone, you can at least make someone smile.
But how do you know you are talented?
Well, the first question you should be asking is “Do I believe in me?”
If your answer is no, then no you are not talented. You have to believe in yourself before you can become the better version of you!
I believe it was John Travolta who ventured into acting/flying because they were fun. (watched some interview a long time ago) He even learned German cause it was just like English and it was easy. Now, there is no denying the man can cut a rug, but acting? For me he has improved over the years, starting in Pulp Fiction, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t act before. See, the secret behind John is that he has always believed in himself. He believed he could so he did.
And so can you!
Until next time.
