It seems as though today’s world is full of successful artistic people, many of which are self made, meaning they have worked hard and have eventually earned their way to a successful life. Each and every artist differs from the next, or at least we’d like to think that, otherwise it’s just a few of the same people circling around and music would never ever have changed since the stone age. Some of those so called artists , are often times a son or daughter of an already famous person who’s got mad money to invest into their future career or a not so famous, but rich businessman or woman who have not experience fame in their lives and simply want it for their children.
All of the above bring me to some of the most important traits every great artist should possess and things they should do to remain at the top:
Getting out of their comfort zone – Nobody’s born great, we all know it. In order to achieve true success, it need to be earned by constantly pushing through the uncomfortable and never stop moving towards your dream. Just think about it… Every time something new is created or another record is beat, the person who’s done it had to have gone outside of their comfort zone to achieve that result! Think of people like pro athletes! Every game, every season, rain or shine, they go out there and give it all and just a little bit more, that 105% if you will. I not talking about it as if 100% was the normal day, I’m talking about it as the absolute maximum! You gotta push and push hard in order to achieve results and being an artist is not different!
Challenge the impossible – Something I’ve noticed throughout the years of watching success, is that ideas or things that are deemed as impossible by most, are only impossibly until someone has accomplished them. Funny thing isn’t it? Think back in the 50’s, internet was just a thing of imagination at it’s best and even the idea of it, was something like the aliens… We’ll guess what? Chances are you wouldn’t be reading this right not if someone didn’t push through the limits in order to create this thing called the internet, as wait… What about computers? That’s what I though!
Never slow down or stop – Last but out of the most important ones is to never stop and always keep on improving! Success is only momentary unless you, as the creator, make it last. It’s understandable that you’ve been working hard on creating the next awesome thing, sleepless nights and all that… Once you’re there, DON’T STOP! You’ve done it one and can definitely do it again. All you’ve shown is the potential, now make yourself a star! It’s understandable that many, especially musicians and singers, come up with one amazing hit, make a good chunk of change from it and then just stop or slow down producing very little to none. Don’t ever stop creating, unless you’re cool with fading away as one who’s done something once and never became great.
