Pick Your Pain

Tips & Resources by Brent Baxter on May 31, 2017


Success comes at the cost of comfort. And once you have the dream of writing songs for a living (or just getting a song cut) pain is unavoidable. So pick your pain. You can either have the pain that comes from trying or the pain that comes with NOT trying.

There’s pain in putting your songs out there just to have them rejected. There’s pain in getting up early to write before you go to your “day job.” And there’s the possible pain of failure- of never getting that cut or getting to make a living writing songs. There’s pain when you cut back on eating out so you can pay for that demo. But on the other side, there’s pain in knowing you didn’t try. There’s pain in not knowing what might’ve happened if you had really put your heart into it.

If you have a dream, pain WILL happen. So... which pain will you pick?
