We all like the world of make believe. As kids we used to play it all the time. Adults do too. Musicians do large venues and struggle to pay bills. Models do huge advertising campaigns and go home to a small artists’ loft they share with three to five other people. This is a good encouragement to support your local artist. It is also a plea for you to not get so down-in-the-mouth at times when you feel you haven’t “made it” like they have.
We all struggle to get by, to make ends meet, to provide for our families. Sure, there are exceptions, but they are the exception, rather than the rule. So, you may never be as big as you think they are; but, chances are, neither will they, and that’s okay! Just keep doing what you’re doing: taking practical and effective steps each and every day towards your goal and you’ll find yourself looking back in the future in awe of how far you’ve come. Ask any dieter or musician: greatness is not won overnight, but greatness is possible over time. So, takes the steps today to achieve it.
Don’t worry. Don’t compare. Just do you.
