In my situation, I wanted to be famous, perform on stage, and play guitar like Slash, my favorite musician at the time. However, I began playing drums, therefore in a sense I also desired to be recognized and perform on stage. That was when I first started. I was 9 years old at the time.

I had a clear idea about what I wanted to be from the start, yet no matter how crystal clear it was, as I made progress, I gradually slid into the so-known as theory trap. I'll tell you about it later and how much it damaged my career.

Along the route, you'll discover several traps that might ruin your dream if you forget why you began in the first place, so, what I tell all of my students to do is to write down their ultimate goal somewhere they can see it as they make progress, so they never forget why they started in the first place.
