The first part is having something to say.
The second part is figuring out how to say it, without getting hurt.
Whether we’re talking about writing a book, composing a song or building a business, we have the eternal need to express ourselves.
But it’s more than that. We have a need to express ourselves that *adds* something positive to the world, however you may wish to define that.
The first time we discover this in ourselves, it’s scary as hell. But then after after a while, you realize that’s OK, it’s *supposed* to be scary.
Because that’s what being alive actually means.
The Good Lord didn’t put us here in order to sleepwalk through the main event.
