Chapter 31 – You Must Believe In Yourself

In January of last year I published my first art book.  This book is a collection of my doodle art and watercolor paintings.  With each painting I have told a story from my life and/or personal experience from my journey on being an artist.  I’m excited to share with you one chapter from my book.  This week is Chapter Number 31: “You Must Believe In Yourself”.

I know this is true for artists, but I also think it is true for everybody else in any other occupation.  You really must believe in yourself!

There was a time when I had very little confidence, not only in my art but in myself in general.  I questioned everything that I did and said on a daily basis.  I think the turning point came for me when I finally decided to stop listening to people’s opinions and actually start forming my own opinions.

I found that once I became strong in my opinions, other people suddenly backed off of their opinions or their opinions became more like mine.

Once I started forming my own opinions and listening to myself instead of others, it was amazing how much faster my confidence grew.  Then it became easy to believe in myself.
