The average man is a conformist, accepting miseries and disasters with the stoicism of a cow standing in the rain.
-Colin Wilson, British Author
Stop with complaining.
Stop with the coveting.
Stop believing you do not have a choice.
Stop thinking that someone else is responsible for your current course.
Stop accepting decent.
Start the pursuit of extraordinary in all things.
Start to dream.
Start to DO.
This thing is on you and your partnership with The Muse.
In-lieu of conforming start thinking differently. Sounds cliché, but give it whirl.
A mentor from afar of mine, Donald Miller, (that’s one who has written things that I’ve read and listened to, not one who actually has physically mentored me) once said: “You will either write your own story, or someone else will.”
I think the same goes for our music. We either will write it for ourselves or adopt the waltz of another’s noise.
