Perhaps one of my biggest challenges has been, creating a clear vision of what I want out of my artistic career. I know I am not alone in this process.
How does one create a vision?
Make a plan. Whatever comes to your mind. Begin there. You can always revise your ambitions.
Make a promise to yourself, to move towards your goal. Believe in your power to achieve your goal, even through the difficult parts.
Believe in your ability to create what ever it is you desire. You must maintain your vision to see beyond the immediate.
You must be prepared to work.
Step by step.
Day by day.
