You try not to think about failing or giving up when you're pursuing your dreams. One day you are on a role, selling albums out the trunk like pancakes and your love ones are all cheering you on telling you to keep pushing and then suddenly the bills pile up and you find yourself not feeling fulfilled even though in one month you almost got off 500 albums out the trunk. You then hear maybe you should do something else? Of course being human you actually contemplate going back to a regular job. But you remember how much time has passed and how if you don't go all out right now on your dreams then maybe perhaps it will be too late.
I really try not to take anything for granted. Doing what I do out there requires mental focus and a heart of gold. You almost have to love rejection to push on to the next person. But like I mentioned when things are looking up the fall is heavy and then you find yourself looking down. I don't know exactly where I'm heading but I do know that if I lose faith then I'm better off not being anything.
