Rule # 1 Of Your Music: Insist On Yourself

I believe you are a musician.

I believe there is song after song after song waiting to be awakened in you.

I believe there’s far too many people telling you what to believe your music should be.

I believe your music is your call.

I believe finding your music is your true and holy vocation.

I believe the vocation of finding your music will help move others into the same pursuit, resulting in a world of less noise and more music.

I believe your music is why you are here.

I believe we will all be better after having been exposed to your riffs, rhythm, and rhyme.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another, you have only an extemporaneous, half possession.”

A successful life is one that says ‘here’s my music.’

Emphasis on my (which is yours).

You need not borrow that which is already in you.
