You don’t have to produce astonishing feats or amazing achievements—you just have to produce. If you can resist the tug to impress everyone with a big splash, and instead pursue the audacious process of expressing your unique talent & exceptional skill with exhausting honesty and unguarded authenticity, you’ll end up with more loyal fans, more repeat customers and ultimately more career longevity and personal success.
Important because if nothing else, a pro has confidence and faith in herself. She is not out to impress everybody, and lives to express her art from the inside out. And in doing so, inspires all of us.
