Rule One- Be happy for the success of others


*Be happy for the success of others. Jealousy and envy are not good character traits and on top of that, the two combined cause wrinkles.

Be happy for the musicians in your community who are achieving success. Realize success has a lot to do with luck and timing, being in the right place at the right time and getting the right “breaks”.  I once met Judd Nelson in Los Angles and as we chatted very briefly (I was hawking my latest recording at the time) in the lobby of the Hollywood Holiday Inn, I asked him to wish me luck. As he signed a copy of my breakfast menu (it was the only thing I could find!) he said, “My mom always told me ‘You make your own luck.’ ” He smiled as he handed the menu back to me, “That said,” he laughed, “Good luck to you Tammy Brackett.”

Luck, hard work, timing, structure, goals, objectives – in the end, the universe unfolds the way it should. Be joyful for the success of others. Pass along your sincere congratulations with hearfelt goodwill.

We should work as if everything depends on us, but pray, hope, and dream as if everything is in the universe’s mighty hands.  After all- it is.

    Reblogged this on Melody Music Studios and commented:

    With shows like American Idol, The Voice and The X Factor extolling performance art, it’s easy to want to compare yourself to those who’ve found their way to the tv screen. But it is very important as a musician to not compare yourself to others AND to be happy for the success of others.
