I am not a teacher. My job is to awaken you.
Teachers open the door but you must walk through it yourself.
Whether you think you are ready or not, just start right now. There is magic in action.
The biggest thing separating people from their artistic ambitions is not a lack of talent. It is tack of deadline.
Do not wait until all the conditions are perfect for you to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.
Minds are like parachutes. They function when open.
Those who don’t try get only what is missed by those who try.
