As the sun set over the horizon, I found myself sitting in my bedroom, surrounded by an ever-growing collection of musical instruments. A drum set in one corner, a keyboard in another, and an assortment of guitars scattered around. My room had become a chaotic sanctuary, reflecting the creative turmoil within me. The constant hum of ambition and the desire for greatness never left me, but my ability to focus on one thing at a time was my greatest hurdle. The end of Cheap Products had left a bittersweet taste in my mouth, but it had also ignited a fire within me to chase my dreams relentlessly. To fund my obsession, I worked any odd job I could find. Each paycheck was a means to an end, enabling me to chip away at the debt on my Sam Ash credit card and add to my arsenal of musical equipment. I yearned for the “pop”, the indescribable rush of creating something that would resonate with people, that would make them feel something. But it was never that simple. My thoughts raced, never settling on one idea for long enough to see it through to completion. I tried to learn every instrument, to be the ultimate one-man band, but in doing so, I spread myself too thin. The gift of being able to do a little bit of everything became my curse, as I was never able to master any one skill. Despite my shortcomings, I continued to push myself. My greatest critic was the man in the mirror, and I refused to accept anything less than perfection. I became my own tyrant, driving myself to the brink of exhaustion, all in pursuit of that elusive “pop”. Eventually, my focus narrowed to the guitar, the instrument that I felt the most connected to. I wanted to shred like John Mayer, to make the strings dance under my fingers and create melodies that would captivate listeners. But even then, my inability to focus and my lack of understanding of music theory stood in my way. I practiced for hours on end, my fingers aching and raw, but the progress I longed for always seemed just out of reach. ADHD was a persistent foe, one that I could never quite defeat. Yet, I persevered. I knew that success wouldn’t come easily, and that I had to fight for my dreams. My journey was filled with countless setbacks, moments of doubt, and self-criticism. But through it all, I held onto the belief that I was destined for greatness, and that my name would one day be known around the world.
