GRIT – The #1 skill that all top achievers in their field need to possess or build!
Perseverance might the single greatest skill a Musician or Artist could ever build and the best gift you could ever gift to yourself is the ability to learn how to persevere.
Perseverance is sticking with your future dream, with your goals, grit, resilience is sticking with your desired future day in day out not just for the week or the month, but for years.
And the ability to work hard and work hard on yourself while you are making that desired future a reality.
Resilience and Perseverance means living your life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
Your music career is a marathon, not a sprint.
Talent doesn’t make you Gritty.
There are many talented Musicians who do not possess perseverance and therefore are not successful.
In fact studies have shown that talent alone might be negatively attributed to success. Meaning the most talented individuals who have existed on talent alone don’t often succeed.
A very wise person once told me that only difference between the Artists, Musicians who make it and ones who don’t, are that the ones who don’t, gave up too early.
Perseverance and failure have so much in common…
Artists. Musicians, Athletes, Entrepreneurs….who experience failure are most likely to succeed because it’s the bouncing back from temporary failure and persevering in the face of failure that allows those individuals to deeply understand that failure is NOT a permanent place.
