Don’t ever kid yourself that your intentions are enough.
You are what you repeatedly do.
If you don’t consistently:
Tell the truth, you aren’t honest.
Work towards your goal, you aren’t ambitious.
Take risks in your arts, you aren’t a great artists.
The bar is higher but in a way more attainable.
You become anything through actions.
More specifically: habits.
The actions you do consistently.
These must be your aim.
Truly great things come from compound effects.
Forget the last minute Herculean efforts.
Focus on the day to day work.
Always have a habit you’re cultivating and one you’re getting rid of.
Do one of each at a time.
Habits become your foundation for you to take those risks.
