Talent or Confidence?

What do you think?

I think these words are often true. I've met many fantastic artists who just keep trying to improve themselves thinking they have to get better at their craft before they put themselves out there.

And at the same time, there are others who feel happy to show the world their meager work in a very proud fashion!

Here's the irony. Sometimes the less talented get ahead while the more talented stay hidden. Your success has less to do with your talent than it has to do with your confidence. 

Chew on this thought a while and see where you fall.

If you are having trouble with your confidence level check out these confidence booster websites.
