“30” is definitely not a goal. A musician has been told “you know you have talent when you get 30, but really, you’ll improve over time, you’ll improve if you do things right.”
At 30, what is being ‘good’, or even ‘better’ at?

I thought that if we were happy and successful, that it was because someone had helped us. That we had been able to pick up a guitar, or have the music teacher to give us something to learn, or have a good band to play, and we learned how to use our abilities in a positive way.
And to be honest, from being a teenager I had a tendency to be arrogant, because I thought that people around me had done that to me, and so I was jealous of the people who were success, or at least were doing OK; it was easy for us to be happy and happy for them.
