What are you afraid of?
There was a time when the reward was for being the class topper, and you’ve tried very hard for it.
There was a time when the reward was for being the smartest kid in the school, and you read all the quiz books for it.
There was a time when the reward was for being the most attractive person, and you’ve circled all the fashion stores.
Unfortunately, times have changed. The compliance and comfort zone economy has changed. It is now the connection economy.
Hence, the rewards have also shifted to someone else.
Now the reward is for being an artist. Being remarkable. Good is not enough, you gotta be insanely great at something at your art.
Do you think we don’t need your art, or are you afraid to produce it?
