Back Stage, March 27th – How To Use Your Fears and Anxieties To Unleash Creativity, by Anthony Meindl. It can be very sobering when you’re about to speak to a thousand people. In creativity we have two choices. 1. We can run away. Or 2. Learn to use all the thoughts going on inside of us. The fears, the anxiety, the comparisons, the worst-case-scenario-thinking – use it all and make it work for you. It’s that stuff that produces the work – write screenplays, expresses feeling, dances the dance, plays the instrument, acts the scene, tells a story, auditions, etc. Your stuff – uniquely yours is the stuff you need to transform, inspire, enlighten, entertain, move, educate, liberate, express, and be. Remember that next time you create. And always choose option 2.
