You don’t get chosen to be a leader. Or an artist. It all starts with a decision.
Good news is that you can lead and create art in anything that you do, in many different ways. There are no limits, and there are no instructions.
If you are looking for instructions, or doing things just like somebody else, then you are not a leader. Being a leader requires you to be innovative. Leading is art.
True artists are not in the game for the money. They are not driven by it and they don’t base their success on it.
What they want is to make a difference. And guess what - they always do.
