I'm a self-centered jerk.
In fact, I thought myself a potential genius in music. I can pass many challenges by luck, not by skills, so I didn't push myself to be an endeavor person. I also want to be recognized, looked up by everyone, but deep down I knew a lot more people are better than me.
In truth, I'm no better than any other person. I still have way much, much more to learn. I must convince myself that I'm a shit.
But it's fine, even if I keep envying my friend whose better at composing. I will work better this time. I must, no, I want to be willing to learn. Whom people truly admire are those who can stand up again and again.
You are likely way better than the average person who doesn't practice music, but not as good as people who practice music many hours a day every day. You can get to their level too, it just takes time and practice. At a certain point luck plays a big role (like making a hit song or attaining popularity, a lot of luck is involved).
You can be recognized and looked up to by everyone, it will take a lot of hard work and luck to get there though. That is the reality. It cannot happen if you do not work for it.
