What’s holding you back?

“We can’t control the level of talent we’ve been given. We have no control over the nature of our gift. What we can control is our self-motivation, our self-discipline, our self-validation, and our self-reinforcement. We can control how hard and how smart we work.” —Steven Pressfield

I believe the place you spend the majority of your time will have more of an impact on your ability to succeed than your technical skills. You can be the most technically gifted photographer in the world, but the place you spend the most time may sabotage your progress. I know this because I’ve lived in this place and getting out wasn’t easy. It’s difficult to leave a place that feels so familiar. Life here is predictable and comfortable.
