... ... -- persistently do the same things. --> Don't do that anymore.
-- How YOU see, say, do things with others may be your biggest challenge. Change that. Look in the mirror, and change that reflection, and change how YOU are "engaged", -- success. Changing others, if ever possible is historically shown to be a formula for failure. I've never been able to change a Failure into a Success, --especially concerning music, the arts.
-- Define "success" (?)
-- Compare? (If do compare, -- Success, or a perceived Standard; what's the difference?)
The question, task, point in this potential Thread, (post induction to the above):
(*) For folks who may not be persistently unsuccessful, what were you doing when you realized that?
(Pertaining to music )
-- Share that..., here, now...?
Anyone notice their own, or others Success, and what they were doing when that happened?
A prequalifier, or two, more, (post induction, to the deductive thesis above ) :
For those hopelessly buried in literal, comma policing formula, (within the arts?), -- you will never get it, skip this. You've likely had success, or could have, but, -- didn't realize it within all your made up rules (which are all made up, irony of ironies of original thought and defacto standard, as they become status quo ) Success is like explaining sex, you can try, but, experiencing it, Success, is the best teacher. Folks who persist in the abstract, per made up formula will forever be watchers, as I've experienced them. Folks who seek Mentors, likely hear, see, feel things they don't like or agree with, ahhh, on the crest of inducing success via observed Mentorship ... stay strong, endure, there will be plenty you don't like or "get" in that new experience. Stick with the same, and remain the same, --unsuccess-full.
-- Thoughts, anyone? Anyone still here ?
