If you really love what you do means that you give the best you got to realize ideas. You might have the goal to be one of the best in your field. Sure you do. And pretty sure you will keep loving it and trying even harder. Right?
You keep saying that you are neither selling nor pitching but convincing with your work. Wrong as much as right. Wrong because, in the end you want people believe in what you do.
Still hear the voice of my friends in my head:
«Hold on and have patience. It doesn’t get any better, you just learn how to deal with it better. Try doing creative things, learn how to ignore people who put you down.»
Love is a process of creative development. So, if you love what you are doing you take steps to make it even better. Don’t you?
