7 Ways Artists Make Their Own Luck

3 Comments


Some folks have all the luck. Want to be one of them?

Most artists could use a little luck. After all, the starving artist stereotype does exist — even if it’s just a myth. No artist should ever give up because they’re feeling uninspired or a painting doesn’t sell.

Luck isn’t just some magical force that only shines down on select artists. It doesn’t require a magic wand, a lottery ticket or even good juju to be lucky. Fortune is created by hard work, dedication and passion and it’s up to every creative to make his or her own.

In other words — in order for luck to strike, you must believe in yourself, as well as think and behave in ways that generate good career fortune.

So, do you have what it takes to get lucky?
