An empowered artist is a truth seeker.
She seeks deeper and deeper levels of self-knowledge (her inner world).
She also seeks to find the truth regarding her circumstances (the outer world).
She becomes more and more powerful as she gains a more accurate and clear understanding of both her inner world and her outer world.
Too many of us simply seek out information and opinions that confirm our point of view and/or enhance our self-image.
Empowered artists are comfortable with hard truths because they know that without seeing things as they are, they’re flying with blindfolds on.
When an artist knows exactly where her strengths and weaknesses lie, she can make the minor adjustments necessary to achieve ultimate success.
Always seek the truth because truth will set you free.
