Everything is multi-faceted.
Certainly a supportive environment from youth, helps people to grow and do amazing things in their lifetime. Not all of us get a strong dose of that though. Artwork that mirrors our dreams, can help us stay the course, or bring us back when we veer off course. Especially if that artwork moved us in the first place. Surround yourself with visions of higher aspirations, that evoke feel-good emotions, and motivate you to go onward and upward. Live well with art. :)
