You want to get rich.

I just went to one of the world's largest casinos. It's total madness and people are sitting in front of a slot machine and just press a button. You know you can win the big jackpot and become rich, that is the driving force.

It's the same mechanism that you have your artist career. You want people to recognize your piece of art. Discover your expression. And like many says, make a living off your music.

There is a big difference though between the two. The slot machine is a very low entrance. You just get there and sit down in front of the machine put in your money and press the button. At the same time, you are at the mercy of the machine. You can't predict when and where it releases its gold.

A career is harder to make an entrance. You have to practice and test things. But the biggest difference is that you can affect your career by doing things. You can market, talk to people and in various ways effect that you are going forward.

Still, I feel people are more or less acting like they are front of a slot machine, sitting and waiting for the machine to release its gold.
