So, yes, it was a big deal that you had this opportunity to speak with this manager in the industry but it was an even bigger deal that you found your voice first.
The level of your strength does not equal your absence of fear. Your confidence is not dependent upon your lack of self doubt. Your personal power is not parallel to the way you appear to others.
By no means do I consider myself a magic person.
I do, however, remember being a child in love with creating, and specifically, creating music. Very early on, maybe 6, I learned in school about Mozart and how he started creating his first piece of music when he was like 4. So, naturally, I came home and started writing “notes” on a tissue thinking that I could easily become a savant, as well.
