Recently they posted this article and even though it's technically about photography, it really applies to anyone. It's about having confidence in yourself and your abilities. Whatever they may be. It resonated with me because I feel that it addresses the issues that I have been contemplating lately. Some highlights from the article:
- Confidence isn’t something that you figure out once and then you’re set. It takes practice, and acceptance.
- One day we’ll be gone, and all that will be left is what we did. If we let our shyness prevent us from acting, then that’s a sad end to the story. So put yourself out there. Your thoughts, your dreams, and, in regards to photography, your work.
- You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain by being yourself.
As an added bonus, the article also included a link to this terrific speech by Steve Jobs, it really is must see TV, er YouTube . (Anyone out there that would rather read it, you can find it here). Another thing I loved is that under the YouTube version of the speech is this comment: "10 years ago we had Bob Hope, Johnny Cash and Steve Jobs, today we have no jobs, no hope and no cash..." Very clever!!
Hope that everyone has a great day, happy Friday!
