Monday Reflection

Today’s guest artist quote is provided by Dayle Doroshow:

Look fear in the face until he backs into the corner and applauds you.

-David Leveaux
Broadway Producer

Dayle explains why this is her favorite quote:

This quote has served me so well in situations where I was feeling underconfident or overwhelmed or without the necessary skills to handle a situation.  When I feel the anxiety, self doubt, or underconfidence rise, I whisper this quote to myself and it sends a surge of power to me and propels me forward in a positive way. I have used this quote before public speaking situations, or dealing with an uncomfortable situation that needed to be taken care of or even before going into the dentists office!  I hope it will give a sense of positive power to you too!

  1. I like this quote. It reminds me of something I blogged about a few years ago on creativity and fear: If I’m not a little afraid when I’m making art — afraid I’ll fail, afraid I’ll succeed, afraid that things are out of my control — then I know I’m not being really creative.
