We have all dreamt of having a successful music career. We have all grown up watching the biggest names in the industry strut their stuff on stage and have listened to their biggest hits to platinum. However, that dream is not an impossible one. Anyone who has a talent might be able to make it in the music world. However, there are four things which might kill off your chances for a success music career. Why don’t you read on to find out more about them?
You Worry Since You Haven’t Got Celebrity Status Your Name Won’t Mean Anything to Anyone
It’s true. When you haven’t been in the industry since birth—and want to break into it—you can often find it’s a tough sell. You can honestly start to tell yourself since you haven’t got celebrity parents or are famous for having a video online, you won’t get anywhere. Well, in truth, while it can help having influence within the industry, it doesn’t guarantee you success. If you think like this, you are going to kill any chances you have of a music career. It’s the same with actors. If they think they won’t get anywhere because they came from a humble background, it’s going to leave them where they started. Stop thinking like that.
The Fear of Rejection
Rejection is something which most of us fear and being told your music isn’t good enough can cut deeply. However, rejection is a normal part of life and no matter how much we try to avoid it, it will happen. We are rejected on a daily basis from relationships to loans and everything else and it’s nothing to be afraid of. Yes, it’s not nice when someone says they don’t like your music but don’t let that get you down. If you’re afraid of rejection it’ll kill any chance you have of being a good musician because that’ll always be in the back of your mind stopping you reaching your potential.
You Think of What Happens If You Fail
What else can stop you from getting into the music industry? You think about what happens if you fail. the fear of failure is looming over most people’s heads when they try to make it into an industry whether it’s film, music, or accounting! There are always worries about what happens if they don’t make it: what do they have to fall back on and what will happen to them? Those are concerns, yes, but they shouldn’t be stopping you from succeeding. Put them in the past!
The Fear of Success
Yes, you can actually ruin your chances of getting into music because of your fear of success. People are scared what it means when they succeed and it can ruin their chances of being a good musician. You wouldn’t think success or the fear of it would stop you but it can and its one major thing which can prevent your music coming to the forefront. That’s why you need to conquer your fears because the worst that can happen if you’re told you aren’t what they’re looking for. If you do succeed, you can reach your goals with your love of music.
Overcome Your Fears
You can honestly fear success, failure, and everything else in-between and it can often help to destroy any chances you have of reaching your goals. However, while we should be wary of those fears, we can’t let them stop us from doing the things we want to. Having a little more courage might allow you to try, even if you don’t succeed, at least you can say you tried. It’s better than turning around one day and saying, ‘I wished I tried’. Why not try your hand at music and see how far you get?
