In this article, I’m going to tell you about 5 things you should have in mind before starting a career as an artist.
5 Things About Becoming an Artist
1) It’s a Long Journey
You are about to start a long journey. It will take a lot of your time, patience is the key. Consistency and Dedication must be engraved into your DNA. Nobody gets success overnight. All successful artists have something in common… behind their success, there are lot of hidden work hours, practice and mistakes. It’s a tough path to choose, commit to your dreams.
2) Don’t Expect Help From Anyone. You Are Alone
Your personal progress is a lonely journey. It doesn’t matter if you are part of a group or collective, your main priority is yourself. Grow and evolve your own work without depending on others. You will find good and bad people throughout your career; people who help you and people who will want to destroy your career because of your success. You must have the strengh and the mentality to fight against it.

3) Look, Analyze and Learn
It is so important to analyze the artists who are already successful. They have already walked the path you are abot to embark upon. That’s part of life, when you were a kid, you observed your parents, teachers, friends, older siblings and immitated what they did. From this you started to develop your own personality.
Every successful artist has or had a role model to follow and only after that, they were able to develop their own path and personality. For example, a unknown artist doing covers on YouTube videos… sound familiar? Some of them become successful and unique artists. Don’t be afraid, analyze, learn and then decide who you want to be.
4) You Can Train Creativity
How many times have you heard, “Damn, I’m not inspired right now”. How many times have you tried to create but found it impossible? A lot of people think that “creativity” is something you are born with. I disagree. Everyone has the ability to be creative, but you need to train it. How? You have to think of creativity as an ability. Try to create more often and everyday you will see a difference. You will become faster and more efficient.

5) To Invest Is An Obligation
You are completely wrong if you think you will get success without spending any money. Nowadays, there is a lot of competition. You must aspire to get the best quality; to invest in better equipment, in a professional recording studio and advertisement. Better beats is necessary. There are no excuses. If you don’t have money, earn it. I worked as a waiter for a long time to earn the money to invest in my projects.
I hope you found this article helpful and I wish you every success in your career as an artist.
