Stop trying to be like everyone else.
Artists, like everyone else, have big dreams… but get in their own way of achieving them. While you might be able to earn and learn your talent and creativity, it’s your ORIGINALITY that will make the biggest difference for you.
What you may not realize is that the very things you want to change about yourself are the aspects that most set you apart, keep you memorable, and should be the focus of your attention.
Do you stay up all the style trends? Do you spend time changing your look to appear like everyone else? If so….
STOP. IT. NOW.
You could be killing the things that make you the most hireable!
Strive For Distinctiveness
Overcome unseen forces that are standing in the way of true success by staying persistent in your commitment …to yourself.
It isn’t enough to kinda like yourself.
Pure self love is crucial for working artists.
To be able to offer your greatest talents to the world, you must truly know yourself the way a musician knows her instrument. Your essence is your trademark.
