That One Time When Avicii (Timberman) Didn't Get Any Feedback

The following story about Swedish DJ Avicii (Tim Bergling), reminds me of not to underestimate someone.

In 2007, Avicii made a post in a large online forum aimed towards songwriters, musicians and producers, wanting feedback on a couple of tracks of his. Back then, his stage name was Timberman, and this time the feedback was nonexistent.

On February 24, 2007, Avicii wrote:

Hi all, I hope this is the right forum to make the post in, but I have a few songs and I'd love to know what you think about them.

If you listen, write a little about which one you liked the most, and which one you didn't like at all, etc., and why. :)

And on March 5, 2007, still no feedback:

No one? :(

A few years down the road, and Avicii is a household name. Not only does he create good music, he also does a lot of charity work, something I find fantastic.

So, if you're struggling to reach a personal goal, think about this story, and keep on going.
