You have nothing to contribute. No one wants to read your blog, hear you sing, or follow your leadership.
You are incapable of hard work, commitment, and the making of change.
Success is measured only in dollar signs, number of likes, and recognition from those at the “top”.
Failure is a dead end.
You have to quit your day job.
You’re never going to be able to quit your day job.
Your art has to appeal to everybody.
Your art is never going to appeal to anybody.
You must get paid for what you do.
You’re ripping people off by asking for money.
If it works for someone else, then it will definitely work for you.
Overnight success is a sustainable model.
You have to be starving to be an artist.
One day you’ll have enough time, money, resources, connection, permission, and talent to start your project, but not today.
Change is easy, unneeded, and unnecessary. The way it’s always been done is the way it’s always going to (and should) be.
You are not creative.
You are not an artist.
