Surround Yourself With Supportive People
In the words of Ms. Jill Scott: “Hate on me haters/ Now or later/ Cause I’m gonna be me.” There will always be people who think you’re crazy, stupid or naive for following your dreams. Your doubters may not always have bad intentions. Some folks genuinely care about you and will discourage your ambitions because they hate seeing you struggle. However, if you’re determined to be an artist, you need people around you who think you’re courageous, not foolish. You need friends or family who believe in you and will encourage you when times get tough.
