When I was a teenager, I was learning to play guitar. But there was a friend who was also learning, and he was just sensational. It discouraged me to the point where I said to myself "no matter how hard I try I'll never be as good as that". It was a mistake. I have developed my own artistic style since then, which is totally different to his. He is technically light years ahead of me still but he would struggle to capture the same mood that I can evoke. We are unique works of art in the end. We all have something different to offer.
