Born today, you are a born artist. While young, you will require a great deal of latitude to explore the options that present themselves to you, and to narrow down the possibilities that can one day lead you over the threshold of professional accomplishment and success. Your talents are many, and your interests even more numerous. One of the hardest things you will have to do in life is choose where to focus your energies. Just remember, you probably won't have to choose only one course of professional endeavor. As long as you are true to yourself and dedicated in your work habits, you can accomplish much even as you change paths again and again -- provided the timing is right.
You can be something of a loner; you certainly do your finest work on your own. There will be times, however, when the contributions of others will figure significantly in your own work. You must never ignore a good idea simply because you didn't think of it! A good idea is a good idea, no matter where it comes from!
