It is amazing how we all skip opportunity because of discomfort and fear. Today I was supposed to do a photo shoot that got canceled because the models, well, they had some vague reasons for bailing.
Yes, it was an early call time. Yes it was cold. Yes, time was tight, and the budget? There wasn't one.
But a lot of work had been done. Planning, organizing, assembling a lookbook, gathering props and managing schedules. We were going to do something rad that at the end of the day could have failed. No matter the case, we would all learn and grow and be better artists than we were the day before.
Some of us are still doing it, and we will learn and grow anyways because one missed opportunity just creates another that is ready to be had.
In twenty years, you will be more disappointed by what you didn't do than by what you did. - Mark Twain
When that moment comes, and you find yourself unprepared and uncomfortable, do it anyways! Those are the moments that change and mold your life. Even if it feels like a total failure, it isn't, because you will do it again and eventually you will win. Or you can stay home and watch TV and be safe and comfy.
