Am I good enough?

I asked myself, Michael Rey “are you really good enough at what you do?”. First of all, what I do, is write Country Music songs aimed for Major & Independent artists, TV, Movies and Film along with my partner Sal Vigil. He is a very gifted Performing artist and Songwriter in his own right. The competition is fierce. Especially when the market is completely saturated with artists trying to sell the song or CD’s and every other kind of merchandise known to man. I’m assuming they’ve all been told they are the best thing anyone has ever heard since they were old enough to walk. And that’s great! I am very happy for them. In my case, my family & friends were very supportive of my talent to sing & play guitar. They would come out to my gigs and really cheer me on. That felt great. The the support to do what I love turns in to sarcasm. Like get a real job. Music is just a hobby. You’ll never make it. Slowly but surely I started distancing myself from all of that negativity. I know to them a real job is work all week, collect your check, pay the bills, put a little into savings, and what ever is left over maybe go out to dinner or something like that. Well, in my case, I work anywhere up to 18 hours a day writing and letting you fine people know I exist via Twitter, Google, and various other platforms. My answer is, “If I truly didn’t think I was good enough to this Music business I would quit. I wouldn’t do it part time or anytime.” So, “yes”, I believe I’m good enough, and I believe that I work hard enough. I believe “YOU”, you’ve inspired me countless time to keep doing what I believe in. So I will. “YOU” have my word.  Thank you, be blessed. p.s. please share this.
