A common response a celebrity gives when asked why they pursued a career in such a brutal industry like show business:
“I had no choice. I just couldn’t do anything else.”
When you make your own art, you choose. You could do many other things, more lucrative and “safe” things, but because you love and care so much about the idea in your head and want to share it with others, you do it anyway.
That’s way more powerful than doing something because you had no other choice.
