Today is very special day for me. That day, 10 years ago (20th December 2008) I started my artistic journey. In this post you can see my first drawing I did and uploaded on one of the pages for amateur artists. And you know what? Just take a look on it and try to remind yourself how many times you heard that you are not talented you are not good enough, you should start doing something else, etc. I did. Many times. In comparison to it I added one of the most popular of my drawings. The same which was nominated and won two prizes in #TheGlobalArtAwards2018
in Dubai. I'm so proud of myself, because this two drawings remind me my journey, these 10 years of hard work on developing my skills, they remind me how important are my dreams to me. They remind me about all moments of doubt and failures. And I'm proud of them, because they can easly show you all, that TALENT MEANS NOTHING until you take the first step and continue taking it patiently. That's what really matters! Don't trust and even talk to those who don't believe in you, because they make your courage disappears. New Year is coming. New Years resolutions as well. Let patience and regularity be your only resolutions no matter what you'll be doing. Forget about something like talent, remember about hard and smart work. Forget for a moment about your goal, because it may never come. Try to focus on your way to them, because you will never miss any beautiful thing that will happen to you then. That will make you successful man.
During 10 years my story inspired over 120,000,000 people, visited over 30 countries, exhibited and sold my works to many of them, I've been meeting a lot of inspiring people every year, I won Audience Award 'Man Without Barriers' 2015, in 2016 I was the first Polish speaker in the history who performed in Asia, in 2017 appeared on the list of 100 Most Influential Poles with disability, in 2018 won @globalartawards
in two categories and being just 25 I had an exhibition in NYC and much, much more.
I had nothing when I started. Even hands. The only thing I had was choice. You do have it. Your turn now.
