“Doubt Kills More Dreams than Failure Ever Will” -Instagram image
Failure, rejection, ridicule, disappointment and the unknown are all powerful fears that can keep us in our comfort zones and hold us back from our reaching our creative potential. Fear can prevent us from thinking up ideas and also hold us back from sharing ideas.
Today the stage is more public than ever before with 24/7 connectivity to the web; the audience is louder and more critical; and our social currency more profoundly tied to our online extensions and credibility. Once you put your idea out there will it be accepted, criticized, or worst yet, not heard at all?
The panel that explored creativity at the inaugural SXSW V2V is going further this year to address fear as part of the creative process – how it can hold us back and propel us forward. The panelists from the fields of tech, fashion and art are diving into fear and creativity so the audience will leave more fearless in their own creative endeavors.
