Laser Practicing - Success Principles for Musicians

The principals of success are the same in all fields of endeavor. Whether in music, finance, marriage, physical health, politics, sports, business, etc., there are common guidelines that when followed result in the reaching of one's goals.

These principals are easy to identify. They are cited in many books and seminars. They are never changing and have been taught for ages.

The challenge, of course, is in living by these rules. Successful people do not like doing the work any more than unsuccessful people do, they are just willing to pay the price now for future rewards.
