“You are the average of the five people you hang around the most.” -Jim Rohn
Think of the 1920’s and Paris. Or The Harlem Renaissance. Or the 1950’s and The Beats.
Go way back to Ancient Greece. Or the Italian Renaissance.
Incredible art was created during these periods. Why? A main reason has to be the flourishing scene. You had all these artists gathered together in one place creating, inspiring, helping, critiquing, competing and motivating one other. It was a staggering output of beautiful, timeless work.
Today, all across the world exist tons of micro scenes. And with technology, it’s never been easier to connect to them. Whatever you’re trying to accomplish, whatever art you wish to manifest, surround yourself with others who have similar goals and interests.
Better yet, start your own scene. Find and lead the others.
Who knows? Maybe you’ll be part of another incredible artistic period that we’ll read about someday.
