The only protection is thick skin, emboldened by the confidence in your own skills, to keep you rocking on.
- Be Open to New Ideas

- Stop Complaining
Rock stars are beacons of positivity. No one goes to a concert to hear them complain that there are not enough people in the stands or their guitar isn’t good enough. They are there to rock, not complain. Stay focused on what matters and let the little things roll on by. This positive rock star attitude will keep you moving in the right direction.
