When you get off track, usually it’s because you start focusing on things you can’t control.
You know what that’s called?
When you focus on things you can control, you know what that’s called?
You can’t control what haters say about your music. You can’t control when you get a deal. You can’t control when you blow up. So sitting around thinking about these things is a waste of time.
The way to make it, is to focus your energy on what you can control. You can control how much time you spend perfecting your craft. You can control how much of your soul reveal in your work. You can control what you do today.
If you train yourself to focus on what you can control and let go of the tendency of focusing on what you can’t, you will completely change the state of your career.
