If there’s one universal rule to “success” I believe it’d be having passion for your specific interest(s). It’s important to understand this concept because if you’re naturally interested and driven by what you love, then there will be no forced actions.

What’s helped me through the last 20 years of my life, is taking the approach to my craft as a “relationship”. I learned, failed, adapted, and grew through so many emotional experiences!

At the end of the day, if you love ‘it’ enough, you’ll do whatever it takes to stay with it.
