To the fans of rock musicians, actors and authors everywhere: you may be wondering how they did it. You may be rubbing yourself raw with self-doubt and hatred. It’s important not to use these people as benchmarks. Compare yourself only to who you were yesterday. And take the necessary steps to perfect your art, push a tiny bit more in the direction you want to go. Leave role models on the posters of high school bedrooms and honor yourself. We’re not that different you know; the superstars and the underdogs. The only difference is; underdogs like us have nothing to lose.
