Okay....let me rephrase this...
Don’t work in the creative industry if your motivation is money.
Trust me to want a job that is not only stressful but often doesn't pay well. Plus many career advisers will warn you about how tough the market is for making a living.
If you’re interested in becoming a professional in the creative industry, don’t do it for the money. There are of course exceptions to this rule. I've done a few projects that have paid quite well but like I said....those are exceptions.
If you want to be rich and rolling in money then become a lawyer, doctor or a businessman. Being an artist, writer or photographer as hobby is fun but it is a different ball-game when you want to make a career out of it.
Being a professional is a competitive, stressful and sometimes difficult job. And it typically doesn't pay well. So why would you want to do it?
Let me tell you why…
It is in your blood to be creative....deep down in your soul, your creative nature is eating away at you. You need to be creative because it’s all you ever wanted. You need to express your creative desire that is burning inside of you. You need to tell the stories of the people, places and things around you. You need to do something that will last longer than you. You need to do something that’s meaningful and that matters.
Creativity is in your blood. Its part of your make-up and you are stuck with it. If it is in your blood then you can’t get away from it - You might as well give in to it.
Get busy and work hard as you need to put a lot of time and effort into improving your skills. If you plan to make this your career, then you’ll be rewarded with being involved in creative projects. You will be pushing your design skills to the max.
Remember...If creativity is in your blood then you are doomed!
