It might appear to be magical. Some sort of mystery that you can't quite pinpoint. But behind every timeless hit song, were strategic writing sessions, long hours spent in the studio, and even longer hidden seasons of the artist and producers honing their craft, to one day create that song you can't seem to get out of your mind, many years later.
In order for your creative work to be memorable, you must decide in advance if you're willing to commit to the journey of personal development. You must decide today, when no one is ready to purchase your painting, script, or book proposal, that you will be intentional about honing your craft. That you will be willing to put in the long hours in the hidden season, to develop your skill, which will one day be appreciated by a captive audience. An audience who is willing to meet your price for what you have to offer.
The moment the world embraces a body of work, owes its emergence to the lengthy season behind closed doors, when the artist was busy honing their craft. That is why its so important to honor those days, that season of what seems like minor gains. Don't despise the days of small beginnings. This is the season you end up appreciating the most when success finally comes. This is the season that has equipped you to handle the blessings that come with your achievement.
