Creative confidence can only come with creative successes. Which goes back to; “just start”. Creative success can only be born out of creative failures. Unless you are unusually lucky, there will be failure before you reach success.
It is just like when you learned how to ride a bike. You fell with your first attempt, and then the falls became less and less. In probably less than a day you can’t even imagine that you had never known how to ride a bike.
Another way to build confidence is to start remembering creative success you’ve had in your life. Here I am not talking about artistic creativity but everyday creativity.
There is a lot that can be added here. Will try to get to this soon.
