If you're a young creative person waiting to make their big break, you probably should read these rules

Don't trade honesty for relatability.

Not everyone will love your work or agree with it. Whether you make music, write poetry, or are a makeup artist. You have to keep it 100% you. People can always tell when you're trying too hard to please them. It feels forced and lacks your unique style and charm. So stay honest to your brand of creativity.

Be a sponge...literally

Soak it all in. If you find an inspiration, hold on to it. Keep absorbing people's work and things that remind you of your ultimate goal. There's nothing as motivating as looking up to people who do what you do and have become successful at it.

Challenge yourself!

It's easy to get comfortable when you get good at one thing. Don't sell yourself short! There's always a way to be better than the last time. Everytime you sit down to work challenge yourself to produce greater things.

There will always be losses

You can't avoid it. Sometimes stuff just won't play out the way you want it to. You set out on a project, and before you're even halfway through, you're screaming "I should never have done this" That's normal.
You just have to move on from it. Don't stay stuck.
