If there is one thing that separates a great artist from a sea of ordinary ones it’s this… vulnerability.
Vulnerability = that sacred ability to let the rough journey of your life take a walk across your face.
Hardship makes an artist; but only if you refuse to hide from it.
Too many talented musicians, actors and writers wear a mask, a thin veneer that hides their pain and prevents the world from seeing the journey of their soul.
You have to peel it off.
Your vulnerability is the thing that makes you fearfully compelling, it’s the thing that connects you to those who are watching.
You cannot be afraid of who you actually are, anymore.
