To Be or Not to Be: Confident as an Artist

Creative Ventures and Fear of Failure

The Role of Confidence (or underconfidence and overconfidence) as an Artist

Lack of confidence, for the most part, comes from a place of fear: judgment, failure, disappointing self or others. On the other hand, overconfidence — again, for the most part — stems from ignorance: not considering an alternative that could lead to better results (known as option fixation), or disregarding a liability or scope of their work in the future, or denial of the need to build skills.
