Music is a very competitive industry. Because it is so competitive, only the best will rise to the top. What does this mean for you? It means you gotta be the best at what you do. Don't just say "I'm the best" just because you think you are, to be the best you must outwork, and out think everyone. Most ppl are "soft" and spend time making up excuses on why they can't make things happen. If I have the slightest idea that I think could work, I just get in and start trying it. If it fails, at least I know I did the best I could in that moment. fail faster, and you get more wins, be scared of failure, and you won't try enough things to get a win.
