Success doesn't come easy.

If it was an overnight success, it was one long, hard, sleepless night. If you want to be successful, you have to work hard and not skip any steps or take shortcuts.
But you already know this...!

1. If it hasn't happened already, it never will Erase that thought from your brain and don't allow it to be part of your mantra. Negative thinking doesn't do any good. Some people may blow up seemingly overnight, but go back and trace their history and you will find most acts have been toiling for years.

2. Why did they blow and we didn't? Don't compare yourself to another act in that way. It's not productive. Instead focus on your own or how to create your own. Look at what they did and how they got to where they are, and try to replicate it with your own unique spin and in a way that properly applies to your sound and situation. Use the information at hand and turn it into action. 

3. I'm not making any paper, so why do I even do it? Stop being a self-crippler with that type of thinking. But you have to suck it up. As is the case with any investment, it's not always instant. You have to sacrifice. If you aren't willing to put in the work and suffer some of the losses, then maybe this isn't for you. Just remember that anything worth having is worth struggling for.

4. "This is a waste of time" It's your art. It's not a waste of anything unless you deem it so. All art will eventually find its audience, but you have to think positively and believe in what you're doing in order for that connection to be made. If you're telling yourself that it's not worth your time, then why would anyone else invest precious time listening to it?

Be positive. Seriously
