“I don’t know the key to success,
but the key to failure is trying to please everybody”
– Bill Cosby –
David is being introspective again. He seems to be caught in a “trap” in which he feels he is required – almost as a gift of obligation and heartfelt thanks to his many Archies who have, not just rooted for him, but stayed and waited for him while he worked out what he needed to do for 2 years – to giving everyone absolute perfection.
Hey, that is an impossible task! Climb Every Mountain. David, but not everyone will climb each and every mountain with you. There will be gushings in certain quarters but there will also be criticisms in others, just like everything else in life.
The only key is that you have to be true to yourself – true to the only obligation you owe yourself – and that is the artistry in you .. the talent bestowed upon you .. the true form in you which we have all recognised and want for keeps. And eventually, everything will fall into place. 🙂
In that respect, you will never be alone or be a failure.
Hah! Just my motherly 2 cents! 😉
