(Prog) Devin Townsend says the best piece of advice he can offer people is to "learn how to fail efficiently." Townsend believes that not letting your failures overwhelm you is the key to success.

He tells Music Radar: "The best piece of advice I could offer anybody is to learn how to fail efficiently. You are going to fail, you are going to hurt yourself, you are going to fall. But, the people that succeed are the ones that learn from that and learn how to either not let it happen again or to just get up and not let the pain affect you."

And he encourages people to ignore internet trolls who target insecurities. "Look at the internet," he says. "Whenever you put anything up on YouTube there are so many people out there with a vested interest in being cruel and hating you. If you pay attention to that it will affect you. You have to be stronger than your insecurity." Read more here.
