Too often freelancers give into the lie that they’re just not that good at what they do.

Whether it’s the thought that your work isn’t very good or that your clients won’t want to pay you, believing these lies can be detrimental to your career as a freelancer.

Although these lies are not true, having the mindset that they are can be what is ultimately holding you back.

In order to overcome the lies that can scare you into being average, you have to be able to change your way of thinking.

Graphic Design Blender offers a few excellent tips on how you can do just that.

“Seeing your work as not good enough is a sign that you take pride in your work and that you expect more from yourself.

This is motivation.

Embrace this feeling and be worried if it ever goes away, because that means you’ve plateaued and have begun resting on your laurels.

Find the parts that make you proud, hang on to those and learn from your mistakes. Then move on.”
