I hate that the momentum of our society forces people, especially artists into positions they're unhappy with just so they can earn a living, albeit an unsatisfying one.
Artists just want to make art but the cost of living is so high they have to work many hours simply to be able to survive and maintain their art career... However the art created while burdened by the heavy weight of financial responsibilities is work forged from fatigue that has been stifled and compromised compared to their art had they not created it after enduring the grind of soul sucking day.
Lately I've been developing my critical thinking skills and in doing so I realized I'm just scratching the surface of what it means to even think critically. I was flabbergasted by this realization because it made me question my the level of consciousness I approach life with in general. I know that there is room for us to all grow so I challenge all you artists out there to get into your head and wrestle with your demons, emotions, and feelings about life and figure out where or what your bottom line is. Then establish a goal and develop a strategy to close the achievement gap between you and that goal. Once you’re on the to achieving your goal you’ll start building momentum and you’ll be on the fast track to success.
