Very little is needed to make a happy life. It is all within your yourself, in your way of thinking.

When you arise in the morning think what a precious privilege it is to be alive: to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.

Our lives are what are thoughts make it.

Each day provides its own gifts.

Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.

The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. 🙂

Let men see, let them know, a real man, who lives as he was meant to live.

Execute every act of life as though it were thy last.

 

Thinking negative about your career, your chances in the music industry?

Listening to your parents or your friends?

Wrong people to be listening to.

You need to get your hands on interviews, news, real life stories from…musicians who are already doing it. Not by people who know absolutely nothing about the music industry, let alone what a V chord is.

Start thinking more colorfully about your goals, your music, your chances. If you don’t think you can make it, you’re right.

If you do, you’re right.

Confine yourself to the present.

Let not your mind run on what you lack as much as on what you have already.

Anger cannot be dishonest.

Begin – to begin is half the work, let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished.

Perhaps there are none more lazy, or more truly ignorant, than your everlasting readers.

So now stop reading and start doing. Make it happen. The business is brutal but not to the one who does not give up.
