If You Build It, They Will Come

Everybody has to start somewhere. You don’t hop on a surfboard and instantly rip, you start as a kook. You don’t grab your first guitar and play like Yngwie. You don’t hop into your car when getting your drivers permit and hit the gas like Jeff Gordon.

It’s the same with music. Sure, some people have a knack for certain things. And sure, some people just suck at some things. That doesn’t mean you give it up. You just practice and get better at it. You can aspire to be a world class guitarist, and end up finding a love for producing music for others. You can aspire to be a world class surfer and end up being the photographer.

Just as long as you surround yourself with the things you enjoy and don’t give up on creating, your creations will evolve over time. Learn about everything and learn how to use every tool you can. Develop your style and construct your foundation of knowledge about your passion.

For me, I can play so many different instruments. I can’t sing. It’s just the way it is. Certain things, we just suck at. I guess my point is: if you are discouraged and acknowledge that you suck at what you’re trying, try something new. It could expand your mindset and give you a new way of thinking.

If you build it, they will come. Not right away though… so don’t get discouraged.
