“Timidity, anxiety, and fear always get in the way of creativity. Many creative people seem to others to be arrogant or to have big egos, because they have immense self-confidence that allows them to take risks. Once you have a few successes, you’ll be more confident. But at first, you’ll help yourself get started if you seek out an environment that is supportive of creating thinking.”~Sawyer, R. (2012, p. 424). Explaining creativity: The science of human innovation. London: Oxford University Press.
