Focus on 'end results' in any kind of skill learning. Trial and error, negative feedback and temporary failures are remedied by an automatic new course set toward the goal. It is part of the process and time should be allowed for it.
Silence is Discipline
More than over-singing, it is over-talking that takes the bloom off the voice. Removing yourself from the temptation of too much talk and remaining silent, while involved professionally, is a necessary discipline.
Phrasing with the rhythm of any language, in performance, is enlightened by knowing and speaking that language well. Understanding phonetics alone leaves the world outside your performance, whether you are singer, pianist or conductor.
Love the Process
Love getting there as much as being there.
At the 'career house foundation', consider the 'career house goals' and understand when to commence planning.
How you speak of yourself is how others will speak of you, and how you treat yourself is how others will treat you.
