“I want an Oscar….I want a Grammy….I want to be a best-seller.”
Aiming high is where big dreams begin, but most of the time it’s best to keep these goals to yourself.
Sometimes people have selective hearing when they hear/read an interview. If you start talking about becoming an icon, the public will not take this well. Icons NEVER talk about becoming one. Only the public can declare who warrants this legendary status. If you keep raising the topic, you will end up sounding desperate and needy- naturally this will put people off you.
Becoming an icon is not easy. You will be sharing the title with greats such as Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Elvis, and a few more. Focus on honing your craft and being the best that you can be. If you are meant to go down in music history, it will happen. If not, your fans will NEVER forget you or hold it against you.
