Emotion is a very powerful part of our business as artists.
I do not deny the fact that a little ego is good.
A little competition also keeps us motivated to try harder, to think deeper. But if you read this and get offended....chances are that I am talking about you. I try not to dwell on negativity..but I see this all the time reading others comments and it burns my ass to no end. All im saying is that you should never ever forget that we all started in this the same way. Having to learn. So I will leave you with a few select quotes that always run through my mind.
Ego, just a three-letter word and yet so interesting. If we did not have an ego, we would be lost. Feeding it too much we would also be lost. (Lida van Bers)
When a man is wrapped up in himself he makes a pretty small package. (John Ruskin)
