Do not be afraid to make mistakes
Don’t ever be afraid to make mistakes or fail at some point. You can restart anytime and every time and trust on learning from the previous mistakes. Without mistakes we would never be able to learn how and where exactly we need further improvement. This way mistakes only help us to further improve. You should use them as indicators instead of regarding them as signs to discourage you from continuing.
We all have stages in our lives where we feel that we are stalling, but don’t let this stop you. Continue to learn, don’t stop looking for inspiration as to which way to go and if you feel one direction is not the best for you, just take a turn and look for other ways to develop your skills. Several sculptors have tried their hand in painting and drawing but then felt, it’s not the best way for them to go. This is exactly why we need mistakes, to show us which way to better go.
