This is a really insightful article into a mistake we are all prone to making. I couldn’t have said it better myself. If you think you can’t make it as an artist, or that nobody makes any money as an artist, or that you can’t support a family as an artist, those are just your thoughts. Why do you need to believe your thoughts? People pre-catastrophise all the time.
If you act like you can make it, then maybe you really can. If you act like you can’t, you are very unlikely to make it. It’s up to you.
