To be good at what you do, you’ve gotta do it for the love of it.
Money, fame, power, connections… these are all just side effects — possibly even distractions — to your creative work.
Not that these things are bad, they aren’t — if you know how to use them.
I say this knowing first hand how difficult it is to start something when you don’t money. Money is a creative lubricate, but it won’t make you a better painter or writer or even marketer.
You are not stuck if you don’t have things like money or connections. You just need to think of clever ways around them.
How would you do it with little to know money?
Who can I get to know that I admire who has a lot of connections?
Everything you think you need to start, you don’t need. It’ll help you jump the line, but if you don’t have the skills to back it up it won’t matter.
Work hard. Hone your skills every day.
Create because you can’t not do it.
The side effects will come.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
