"Here's conventional wisdom:
Success makes you happy. Happiness permits you to be generous.
In fact, it actually works like this:
Generosity makes you happy. Happy people are more likely to be successful."
Full-time musicians always amazed me and I have tons of respect for most of them. They have the courage to be generous by sharing their love for music (gift), the power to keep up with their dreams (perseverance), and they ship their work very frequently (non-attachment).
Let's flip upside down the "conventional wisdom."
