Creative Confidence?

In the last couple of years since I quit my dead end job, I go through certain phases. "Yes, this illustration thing is awesome" and the "Damn it, I'm not making even close to a living, I need to get a real job". The latter sort of sucks all the energy I have and pushes me into a bit of panic driven crying and journaling. But when I stop and look at the big picture, I know that I'm on a good path and everything takes time...

I've never been that confident of an artist. I always loved drawing and painting but getting my work out there?  Even when people are interested in my work, I seem to let things fall through the cracks. That is a problem I need to get

I was inspired by this wonderful Ted Talk about creative confidence. It reminds me that the more confidence you have as a creative the stronger you get as an artist/person. 

I know this is a lifelong journey for me. But I have to imagine what it would be like if I did have confidence. Who would I be? What would I be doing? It makes me want to live the saying, "fake it till you make it". Humm...that's is a lot to think about, isn't it?

Who would you be, if you freed yourself of your fears?
