My most recent adventure has been in learning how to model in Cinema4D. I was terrified of it, and had no idea what I was doing. Turns out, after spending 2 ½ months working on it, I started to get better at it, and begin enjoying it more.
My kids have been a big source of inspiration for me. When they learned to
walk, they didn’t start by walking. In fact, it was a lot of falling down and getting back up. I reflect on that time whenever I’m beginning to learn something new. I know I’m going to fall down, and some of the falls might be more difficult than others. But, I have to keep getting back up and trying to move forward. That’s the only way I know how to do it. It seems like kids are meant to remind us of lessons we learned and forgot a long time ago. They’re great teachers!
Is there something you’ve wanted to learn but felt it was out of reach? I bet if you gave it a shot, and stuck it out for a few weeks (maybe a few months) that you might just begin to take that skill for a walk and start to believe you can do it!
