When we're watching someone perform for the first time, most of us are only seeing the final cut. The performance always seems void of mistakes, flawless. A good performer makes performing appear effortless. Though what you're really watching is someone who has spent thousands of hours trying to perfect his craft.
I was one of those guys who thought I could just pick up a microphone and be an auctioneer. I was awful at the beginning of my career. It's no wonder why people give up so easily early on when trying something new. Even when people said I should quit, I didn't. I kept practicing and have never stopped, constantly pushing myself to become better. Even now, I still feel like I'm a student of my craft. There are so many ways to do something better or differently!
