Some schools of thought advocate doing what you love and the money will follow.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurman

Other schools advocate finding the intersection of what you love to do with what the world needs.

I like how Shea Hembrey created his own biennial and became the 100 artists participating in it! Watch his TED Talk here.

Joseph Campbell says artists are the myth-makers of our day. The artist’s function is the mythologization of the mysteries of becoming a human being.

Keep your dreams alive because no one else can tell the stories you have to tell. No one sees things exactly the way you see it.

You’re an alchemist. The Universe might mysteriously be conspiring for your success.
