What Motivates You?

What drives you, internal or external validation?

Do you chase the approval of others?  Or would you rather just BE who you want to be as an artist?

One is surface level.  The other is God level.

If you just ARE the artist you want to be—comfortable in your artistic choices, your vision, your drive, your momentum—not only will that help your career, but you’ll sleep better at night.  Nobody can take that away from you.  Your soul will be at peace.  And isn’t that the real goal anyway?

Buncha Spotify plays vs. inner peace.  Hmm… 🧐

Seek to BE, not to be "perceived as.”

The rest will fall into place.
