Why do you want to be a successful musician?

Have you ever asked yourself why do you want to be a successful musician? Many people looking for the new methods to promote their music didn’t ever answered that question. I think that’s crucial because each of us has a lot of common desires in the aftermath of success. But what really is success in the music industry?

There might be a lot of explanations – fame in the limelight, wealth, prestige, rock star lifestyle, adventure. Life with passion. We were born to achieve our life purpose and transcend it. Success is measured differently by everyone.

I always wondered how my life would look like if I had no passion.
I would probably hovering around the apartment, sitting at the computer for hours and watching stupid videos on youtube. Life would slipping through my fingers and my butt would be square-shaped from sitting continuously on a chair. Yeah, it really sucks.

Once, when I played a concert and returned to the bedroom after hours I felt incredibly satisfied of what I’m doing. I remember that a lot of people came to our concert. I realized that it really makes sense.

Then I scratched on my notebook something like this:

I don’t want to sit in the office from 9 to 5 and pretend to work.
I don’t want to work on project that I don’t care about.
I don’t want to have a boss who don’t give a shit about my life.
I don’t want to do what I don’t like.
I don’t want to stress myself in work.
I don’t want to take the overtime to pay my bills off.
I don’t want to loose my energy and talent.


I want to spend my time with my family.
I want to share my music.
I want to feel fulfillment.
I want to live the nonconformist lifestyle.
I want to develop my talents.
I want to do what I’m best.
I want to help people to achieve their lifetime success.
I want to have a fun.

And it was that simple. I have just written down these sentences about 3 am and felt that everything is achievable for me if only I have determination.


Mountain Burger Steaks

It’s time for a new recipe! I’m a city boy at heart, and I don’t think I can survive for long in the wilderness without the modern luxuries of urban civilization. Of course, you can’t expect me to haul my TV or stereo, my favorite couch, or even my laptop to a place thousands of meters high above sea level.

But one thing I can bring is the set of ingredients of great-tasting food. Unlike other mountaineers who just settle for canned goods, I go for good old’ home-cooked (mountain-cooked, in this case) meals. Thus, the meals I prepare up there are gourmet (relatively, of course, considering the nature of mountaineering) dishes, and my fellow campers often have to beg to take a bite.
