Let’s face it, not everything we do will be successful. If you understand that, then you shouldn’t feel anxiety about continuing anything you start. If you aren’t concerned with the end result and put your attention solely on the actions with the goal of enjoying the process and knowing that no matter what happens you will learn a tremendous amount about the thing you are doing as well as yourself, then that in itself is a success. If you can think about everything you do in this manner, then nothing will be a failure. It may not make the money you want, or you may not get the solo chair in the community orchestra, but you will learn. And if you can enjoy learning, then you’re all set to begin.
