The underlying and often unaddressed fear in being brave & staying focused to your dream is that momentum is just as hard to slow down as it is to build.
Once you start growing as a creator by being persistent, doer, believer,risk-taker, you realise your obligations towards the stakeholders shoots up too in direct proportion with the aforementioned qualities. More the growth, more the expectations!
“…many of us fear too much momentum. We look at a project launch or a job or another new commitment as something that might get out of control. It’s one thing to be a folk singer playing to a hundred people a night in a coffeehouse, but what if the momentum builds and you become a star? A rock star? With an entourage and appearances and higher than high expectations for your next work. That’s a lot of momentum, no?”
