Here’s some goods that — I think — I’ve come to know:
If you cultivate the talent within you, commit to working hard, and are able to create and then execute a specific plan with persistence, drive and determination — we can and will ultimately have success doing what we love! It’s been true for countless artists before us. And it’ll be true for thousands more, hopefully including you.
But now the bad news. I have absolutely no way to predict whether that success will arrive in 6 months, 6 years or 16 years!
So, pause for a moment and consider: What if it does happen to take 16 years?
Will you still be here?
