“Don’t be in a band to be successful. You can do far easier things to be successful. You’ve gotta do it because you love it. If you love it, you’re already successful because you’re doing what you want. It isn’t tied to money, if you really truly believe in what you do and it’s what you should be doing then you’ve already found your success and happiness. It is really relative. How many people do you see daily in the media, these famous movie stars that have everything that they’ve ever wanted, killing themselves, going into rehab? Is that success? It is just wrong.
As long as everything you do points towards that "Who do I want to be? What kind of person do I want to present into this world?”, regardless of what it is then you’re already successful. Simple.“
