When a man is unable to understand a thing, he ridicules it.

-Leo Tolstoy

 

Dreaming of Failure? Allowing the words of criticism to invade your head and fill you with self-doubt? What a shame, what a shame – but you CAN escape the Drooma game by remembering that your way is the right way for you. So don’t let fear block your own pathway. Don’t be hindered by the critical voices of others.

Fear of failure often comes from the inner voices of insecurity and self-deprecation that you have internalized over many years because you have allowed yourself to absorb the external voices of criticism. Those negative voices have much to do with the realities of those who habitually criticize, and very little to do with your own reality.

So never didderdangle in a Drooma game and always avoid being jettisoned into a Drooma Screammare – The Thoroughfare of Despair. Even if your creativity sometimes hovers directionless for a period of time unable to find the right way, you should keep reminding yourself that generally, your way IS right for you.

I had some fun matching responses – out of context and not in real time – of those criticized to those who had criticized them in HAVE YOU EVER HAD A HUNCH? The Importance of Creative Thinking. Here are some:

H.F. Peyser on George Gershwin: AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is nauseous claptrap, so dull, patchy, thin, vulgar, long-winded and inane.

George Gershwin, “Crazy Girl”: I got rhythm, I got music…Who could ask for anything more?

Leonid Breshnev on Margaret Thatcher: She is trying to wear the trousers of Winston Churchill.

Margaret Thatcher: In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man; if you want anything done, ask a woman.

The voices of ridicule, disdain and condemnation can be threatening and vindictive. Despite the fear and humiliation Spunktaneous experiences in THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE, he has the resilience to survive the negativity of the Drooma – and the Sc-c-c-c-reeeeammare he has entered…
