Never does what’s expedient.
Worries about money, but never makes it paramount.
Is jealous of others’ success, but puts his head down and keeps working.
Knows when he strikes a chord, knows when he gets it right. Look for this resonance, this inner light. When you’ve achieved it, you’ll get an inner smile.
Knows a career is a journey and you learn through experience.
Lives in the world of discomfort.
Knows that love is the answer, but is sometimes poisoned by hate.
Wants a wide audience more than he wants riches.
Knows not to listen to anybody but himself. Stories in the press are inaccurate, and everyone’s an individual, on his own journey.
Plays to his strengths, not his weaknesses. Focuses on what he does right, not what he does wrong.
Is rarely good at anything else.
Dies inside when he is not creating.
Questions himself constantly…
