Mac Miller is my favorite musician of all time. Unfortunately, the book is disappointing, mostly because the author primarily talks about her experience, instead about his music and life.
CHECK IT OUT:
• “You gotta pretend that no one listens. You gotta pretend that you’re just making music for yourself, because when you do something for yourself and only for yourself and it translates to everybody else, that’s like what I think true genius takes it’s form.” -Mac Miller
• The key to survival is finding something small to love about each day. There’s no life without the small things. Youth feels so sweet, in part, because the simplest joys are the longest lasting. As adults, we have to realize that we spent our time waiting for the big thing to unfold, we’ll have wasted all our lives in anticipation and done absolutely zero living. You stay a kid by falling back in love with life even after it’s done you dirty because there’s always another treat waiting in the wings.
• The number one reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead of how far they’ve gotten.
• “I’ve had a life that was completely carefree. The very beginning of my career was completely carefree. I felt invincible, I felt….just, zero sadness. You know? For a moment. And then I’ve had all sadness, just all darkness. But I think being in a place where you can spend time in both and gain perspective on the other side, makes you appreciate what each brings to the table.” -Mac Miller
• “I would just tell myself to worry a little less and not hold onto—don’t create all of this weight for things. Everything has so much weight, but it’s all just chapters. It’s all just pieces of the story. There’s gonna be a next part. It’s not a big deal. It’s not.” -Mac Miller
