It's NOT About the Music
I might catch some heat about this one, but let's be honest everyone, it's NOT about the music.
It's hasn't been for while.
That doesn't mean that the music shouldn't still be GREAT! Don't get the two confused. It just means that success now in the music industry is more about the way you "present" and "position" yourself than it is about the music.
How To Build Self-Trust
Self-trust in a general life definition means that trust that you can take care of yourself adequately.
Self-trust in a definition relating to business means that you will do what you say you are going to do!
The issue is that a lot of artists, business owners, people who are running their own business or working from home are thinking that self-trust means.
Trusting that I will WIN at this!
That is not what it means…
If you have that definition you will most certainly never follow through, because you know you can’t win at everything.
It's The Little Things
Often when we are wanting our happiness to increase we wait for a BIG change, A LOT of new money, a HUGE debt pay down a NEW job etc. But the truth is that true happiness is found in the little things, the details.
That cliche saying that you hear EVERYWHERE is really very true.
Sometimes we forget how really simple it can be to change our mood our feelings and perhaps our entire day by just doing that one little thing that makes you feel happy.
Motivation is a Myth
Motivation is not something that will come upon you when you’re feeling just right at the right time! It’s when you’ve decided that you have a good enough reason.
You must find those reasons and connect them to what it is that you’re trying to change.
For a lot of people family is a big reason.
For some it has to be for us, and that’s okay.
What is your reason to initiate, continue, or terminate a behaviour?
If motivation is evading you perhaps you just need to find a better reason or maybe it’s remembering your reason that will change your mind.
So the first part of this myth is that motivation of something you find outside of yourself and the second part is that motivation is a happy lovely energy filled experience that washes over you like diary dust and compels you to act.
When people tell me “I just have no motivation”, it blows my mind a little because those very same people are the people that I can never ever imagine them saving “I have no
Reason.” They do, they have themselves, families loved ones, pets and dreams.
Don’t wait for motivation to show up.
You show up no matter how it feels, because you have reasons, big ones, amazing ones to crush your goals and live a happy life
Raise Your Own Bar
The act of asking yourself how to do just a little better each time will eventually see your bar raised so high that you are the one to follow. Often we get too focused on the big goal that we are chasing and forget that if we take the mindset to just raise the bar ever so slightly every single day we can and will achieve new heights, that bar might even surpass our goals in many ways.
Using this technique leaves behind a stable foundation of stepping stones and blocks that create an amazing structure for that bar to rest on.
How to Be ALL IN and Still Let it Go
I remember when I realized for the first time that I needed to do this.
As a coach I am ALL IN - heavily invested in my clients and their experience of pursuing self-development.
I want them to have a transformation.
I want them to nail their goals.
I want to show up BIG for them so they can do the same for themselves.
I want to believe 100% of the time that they can achieve their wildest dreams in their lifetime.
I just can't NEED a result from them in a certain period of time, that will most certainly keep them from shining.
I just REQUIRE them to perform on a timeline for me and my results.
And I teach them to same about their own goals.
There is a difference being being fully invested in your mindset. work ethic and showing up for yourself bigger than ever before and yet still letting go of the desperation and needing it all to work out the way you think it should. The art of learning how to be ALL in and still letting go of the result is an amazing thing.
It's often when my clients learn this that things start magically falling into place.
Joanne is absolutely fantastic. This is a great podcast for those with aspiring music careers
