It’s currently more fashionable to be self-effacing, than to show that one values one’s self. Perhaps this is why self-value is a difficult concept for many musicians. However, humility is very different from low self-value: It is possible to be humble without accepting zero minus expenses as wages.  It’s also entirely possible to ask for a minimum without being a megalomaniac. Author Eckhardt Tolle said it wisely: “We must all realize that we are neither better nor worse than everybody else.”
