Two kinds of fear

A wise artist once told me that a wise artist told her that you can experience two kinds of creative fear:

1. You want to write the book or paint the painting or start the business with all your heart—but you hesitate because you’re terrified you’ll fail.

2. You don’t want to write the book or paint the painting or start the business, but you’re afraid that if you don’t do it, you’ll miss a chance.

The first is worth acting on.
