Success comes from hard work, networking, dedication, talent and a little bit of luck. Something that makes a huge impact on each one of those things is your mindset.
Your mindset should be positive, uplifting and attracting success. This will, in turn, make you confident in every aspect of your life and will affect your success in music.
An example of how your mindset can affect your success in music can be the following: Picture this, you have an important gig coming up that you have worked hard for. You’re trying to psych yourself up but you keep having these anxious thoughts of “what if I mess up?” “what if no one likes my music?” etc. That’s thinking negatively and having that mindset can damage your chances for success.
Instead, here are some tips to help you improve your mindset to positively affect your success.
Step 1 Choose something you want to have come into your life. It could be something like a publishing deal, a manager, a sale on your song, an artist cutting a record you wrote or something else you really desire.
Step 2 Focus on what you desire. Really visualize what it would feel like to have this thing in your life. Think about the emotions you would feel towards it. If it would make you happy focus on that feeling. It takes 17 seconds to start creating momentum for manifesting something. So you want to focus for at least for 17 seconds on the thought.
Step 3 Write out yourself having it in the present. Try using ‘I Am’ statements. So if you wanted to manifest or bring into your life a manager you could say:
I am working with an amazing manager.
I am recording an amazing album.
I am a grammy winner etc.
Write it out many times. The more times the better.
Step 4 Write a gratitude statement about having it. Here are some examples:
I am so grateful for getting my first record deal.
I am so grateful for winning my first grammy.
I am so grateful for finding the perfect guitarist for my next song on my album.
Step 5 Move on! You don't want to focus on it too much or you'll introduce resistance. Go have fun! Do things that feel good so you can keep your vibration up and have faith. This is always the hard part! Waiting but you must have patience.
