Comparison is the thief of joy. It may be a cliché, but it is profoundly true, especially when it comes to our creativity. Ask yourself now: when will YOU actually feel like you're "enough" when it comes to your work. When you win a regional award? A Pulitzer prize? An Oscar? Stop waiting for your pat on the back. Pat your own back.

8:48 - Engage In Facts
9:09 - Establish A Creativity "Container"
11:13 - Determine whether or not this fits in your life
