Screw the nay Sayers

I really don’t care if you wanna be an actor, a photographer, painter or fairy unicorn skipping through the magical Forrest ,don’t be deterred from doing it. Anything you want to do or be is within your reach, you just have to work for it.

In the case that you want to be any of those creative ones up there here is some advice (really can’t help with the unicorn one but if you figure it out let me know):

Firstly

Screw the people that say you can’t do it. You only get one life don’t waste it not believing in yourself.

Secondly

Everyone started somewhere no one was born with the skill to create amazing art or write an amazing book, it came after many years of practice failure , restarting and remixing work.

Thirdly

Learn from those you admire, copy them, steal from them (not plagiarize ) and then do the same of those who the person you admire ,admires in your craft (that sounds kind of confusing).

Lastly

Start creating stuff. Doesn’t matter if you’re known or unknown. You have to fake it till you make it.

Statistically speaking there are a few billion people out there not pursuing what they really dream of doing. Don’t be one of them.
I recommend reading “Steal like an Artist” by Austin Kleon for a true guide to letting your creativity blossom
