In this book, you will find many strategies that will help you prepare for the artist's journey and overcome any challenges that you encounter along your way.
No matter what form(s) of art you practice, whether drawing, painting, music, sculpture, acting, cinema, architecture, or something else, the path to success can be daunting and filled with obstacles.

Believing in yourself is a real test of resilience and commitment to your craft, which will be essential in staying on the right path
