Realizing your desires is about more than just having a dream and waiting for it to come true. Very few people – so few as to be statistically negligent – are “discovered” leading to a life of professional success. In fact, most artists who “make it” do so because of very hard work in and out of the studio. As a career artist, you must make seeking out opportunities part of your regular practice. Mark out time every week for this. The more you seek, the more you’ll earn.
