I have not been on this site for long, and I may not be the best judge as to what belongs on the site, but should we welcome contributions like this answer? (Part of the problem is of course that the question itself is quite broad and vague.)
As far as I know, the aim of this site is to give practical and objective advice, and this answer reads more like a pseudo-spiritual motivational speech.
The use of rhetorical devices such as:
Live, live, live. Love, love, love.
is probably indication enough that this is not a practical answer, but a speech or a rant. Or does repeating words three times actually provide additional meaning?
EDIT: I think I identified what rubbed me the wrong way about this answer: it does nothing to demystify the process of becoming a musician or the act of making music. On the contrary, it reinforces stereotypes about suffering for art and pouring your soul into your music. I don't think these romanticized ideas are particularly helpful to a beginning musician, and they surely don't offer any actionable advice.
EDIT: The answer has now been expanded to contain more specific and practical advice, after someone requested that in a comment. I don't think it's quite so problematic anymore.
