think of all the people who did not get clicks and shares, or good reviews. You are in many ways, ahead of the game.

If you are in this business to become rich and famous, you are probably among the 99.99 % headed for disappointment. If you are into it for the love of music, you shouldn't base your self-confidence on such an external measure.

I once was working on a documentary about a group of artists. I remarked to the director that one guy in particular did not fit the typical "artist" mold. He was a sculptor who worked by day as a welder. Very blue-collar guy, never went to Art School, didn't hang with other artists, or wear a beret! The director said he was the 'one true artist' of the whole group. Why? Because when he saw a piece of steel, he HAD to bend it. He couldn't NOT make sculptures. It had nothing to do with becoming famous or selling his work at a gallery.
