Fear of the unknown.
The unending ascent.
The unexpected dips.
The jarring dives.
The non-stop spinning.
The steep drops.
The jolting corkscrews.
The backwards flips.
That’s what an artist’s career feels like.
The only difference is that you’re the driver in your career whereas you’re the passenger on a rollercoaster.
Knowing that you’re ultimately in control is liberating.
Being aware of the terrain before you enter helps you better prepare for the journey - expecting the emotional ups and downs makes them more manageable.
So buckle up, take a deep breath and get ready for the ride of your life.
And remember to never close your eyes.
