be egotistical as hell
look your paper right in the art and know that you have a SKILL
look at it with PRIDE because you seriously made that
seriously think about it you MADE something you are a damn creator
accept it as fact that you are fabulous and constantly improving
acknowledge all your hard work because it's amazing you did that
be egotistical as hell and dont let anybody tell you shit
and if you don't feel that way, if you think i'm being silly or unrealistic, keep telling yourself those "silly" things anyway, seriously just keep doing it and eventually it'll just click and you'll understand how true it is.
anybody who whines about artists being "overly confident" or "full of themselves" is nothing but a brat trying to drag people down, dont even hear them, just focus on how powerful your ability to improve is and you'll succeed. because you are fuckin awesome.
