My daughter loves unicorns as many kids do. But as we get older we stop believing in things that we label as “Make Believe.” Why? Because we’re trying to be realists. It’s interesting, but all the successful artists who I had the honor of knowing before they became famous had one thing in common. They never doubted that they would be successful. Sure, sometimes they would stop believing, but throughout was a steadfast mental commitment to achieving the creative career levels they felt entitled to. Yet at the same time it was almost as though they might as well have been believing in unicorns, because those around them in the early days were not convinced they’d become what they eventually became. I also noticed that these artisticpreneurs increasingly made a point of building relationship with those who believed in unicorns too. Eventually they had created a cocoon around them of believers – believers in them. Of course those around them were connected to other people who could help with the journey. And as such, they made their ascent. Blocking out the naysayers and focusing on the dream. But for them it wasn’t a pipe dream, it was a guiding light. The unicorns carried them where they wanted to go.
