The main reason people don’t try to do work they love, don’t even look for it, is because they don’t think they’re good enough. That’s hogwash. We’ve been bamboozled and hornswoggled into believing we are insufficient, that it’s scary to fail, when neither is remotely true.

I'll be honest here, I'm not a very confident person and that is perhaps why I face the freelance career with a sense of trepidation. It hasn't helped that in the last two weeks I've been unsuccessful in a few job applications. It's only a few however, at least it's not hundreds.
