In any creative field, one thing that everybody deals with at some point or another is seeing other people succeed while you stay where you are.

As much as we’d all like to think so, you can’t win at music. You can’t win at art. And you can’t win at life. It just doesn’t work like that, so why do so many of us treat our music like it does?
