London Rapper ARTAN gives Mission Statement his “5 Tips For His Younger Self”. ARTAN burst onto the UK music scene in 2018 and has since gone on to rack up millions of streams with his candid lyrics and heartfelt delivery setting him apart. 1. Listen more, you have 2 ears and one mouth for a reason. Learn from others mistakes even though you want to make the mistakes yourself, it’ll save you time in the long run.
2. Stop worrying about being ‘rich and successful’ and focus more on simply doing what you enjoy and mastering that craft. One day your ‘hobby’ will become your 9-5 and you’ll be doing what you love every day and that’s the main goal, the money comes after.
3. The greater the risk the greater the reward. Stop worrying about what people will think of you if you try your hand at something, perception isn’t reality and it can be changed... Just do it!
4. You will be terrible at everything when you first start out and that’s fine! Everyone has to start somewhere, but if you enjoy what you're doing you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll progress in simply 1 year. 5. Stop worrying about death and what happens in the afterlife. You have no control over it and at the end of the day you don’t remember what happened before you were born and I doubt you will after, so just enjoy the ride while it lasts!
