The song that you want to play isn’t necessarily the same song people came to hear.
When you’re finally discovered and hit your breakthrough, you end up spending so much of your time trying to stay there. Eventually, you lose what it is that got you in there in the first place.
On the other end, when you’re in the shadows, no one is watching. Which means if you fail no one is there to see it happen.
Embrace anonymity for as long as you can. You’re working to prefect your craft not to become a one-hit-wonder.
