We Need Healthy Self Respect to Be More Creative

Comparing ourselves to others can sometimes suffocate our creativity. "A person needs a healthy self-respect to pursue novel ideas, and to make mistakes, despite criticism from others. Self-doubt there may be, but it cannot always win the day." Margaret A. Boden, PhD.

» Feeling Like A Fraud - The Creative Mind | Being Creative | Scoop.it

People who feel like impostors will often play it safe by not even attempting a creative project, out of a self-limiting belief of being incompetent.

 

Tilda Swinton admitted, “I certainly never set out to be an actor, and I still find it embarrassing when I hear myself referred to as an actor. I expect real actors to stand up and protest: She’s a fraud.”

 

Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything Is Illuminated, which made The New York Times best-seller list, once commented, “I can be very hard on myself. I convince myself that I’m fooling people. Or, I convince myself that people like the book for the wrong reasons.”
