My motivation for being a good drummer was born out of fear, which, in a way, seems so antithetical to what art should be.
I went to a motivational training course once, a course of self-discovery, and I found out after a week that my fear - it was not a fear of not being accepted - was a very violent fear of failure.
Being humble matters.
Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.
Sie müssen eine Vision haben und sie durchsetzen - mit Motivation und Überredungskunst.
Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.
