There is a story that goes around with varying interpretation, but the message is basically the same…

When Mozart was about 22 years old, a young man of about 25 came to him and asked for his advice on what to do to become a composer. Mozart said, “You are too young”. The young man was shocked and said, “But you started to compose when you were only four years old?!” “Yes”, said Mozart, “but I didn’t ask anyone for advice!”
