Feeling Stupid

Feeling stupid is a universal feeling. I’ve felt it. I’ve battled with it. It’s terrible, paralyzing, and back stabbing.

It brings along a voice. A voice that teases your aspirations, insults your image, plants seeds of doubt, challenges your intelligence, rejects your body, and questions your existence. It laughs at every single failure you commit. It convinces you to become your worst and most tormenting critic. Before you know it, you’re swimming in endless cycle of passivity, confusion, and fear. Then excuses, envy, victimization, and regret become a common thing.

So, reject any demoralizing voice or opinion immediately. Reject perfection, plan your finish, and execute your ideas with out putting too much thought. Be quick on your feet, and forget what mom, dad, and friend might think.

This is you. It’s all about you and what you will bring forth to the world. And it will be amazing. Far from stupid.

Yes, it will be a weak and not so victorious beginnings. But if you place really close attention, at a micro level, the process is beautiful and worth while going through.

These dark voices don’t want you to know that.

    1. Thanks Omar. It’s the only way. Chuck Jones, creator of Looney Tunes, said ““Every artist has thousands of bad drawings in them and the only way to get rid of them is to draw them out.” Getting work done is the only way to make these voices fade out. Who knows, maybe it’s our “stupidity” that makes us great!
