Rilke told Kappus he must learn to trust his feelings, to face what is difficult, and to do this with a deep sense of both humility and patience. Only then will he be able to write poems that affect those who read them.Moreover he includes love,feminism and career choices in his letter but the more interesting thing for young writers those involved with creative writing.

Answer

The focal thought is the artist attempting to say that one ought to investigate himself in the event that he needs to figure out something about him. He said there is nothing best that can help you to settle on choice its just yourself.

The inward side of you can let you know whether you ought to do what you need or not.

The writer wrote in answer that you ought to ask yourself that whether you can be artist or not nobody other can give you preferred answer over yourself.

May be some of the time it is against your desires however that would be better response for you. Nobody can remove anything in yourself however its yourself that can do it.
