Here’s a short excerpt from The Passion Principles: 101 Ways to Express Your Creativity and Share It With the World

4) Confront your greatest obstacle

Some artists like to recite a long list of obstacles that keep them from success. They blame culprits such as unsupportive parents, partners, spouses, friends, teachers, etc.

They also curse the dismal local arts scene, the weak economy, the apathetic media, and how society doesn’t value art (or music, literature, theatre) anymore.

Yet, at the same time, other artists thrive in this very environment.

Yes, there are challenges along the creative path. And guess where you’ll find the most destructive one? Inside your own head.

Your greatest obstacle is self-imposed.

The good news is, that’s exactly where you have the power to control him.
