Negative Programming Kills Dreams
You probably been told your entire life that:
Only a select few are blessed to do music…most are starving artists…
Or perhaps this sounds familiar:
Get a real job, music ain’t for everybody!
Since the time we were just a little infant we been programmed to regard certain things as just facts of life. The unfortunate part is, most of these ideas are straight up BS!
Before I was “woke up” as people in the metaphysical community would call it, I was programmed with so much negativity that it was spewing out of me.
The type of negative self-talk was practically vomiting out of me.
Negative Programming Kills Dreams...and sometimes People
Once we are programmed with these ideas we tend to project them onto ourselves.
We are not good enough, not talented enough, blah blah blah….all BS excuses for why we don’t rise above our mediocrity.
I just started a new book called Primal Leadership by Daniel Goleman .
I admit I haven’t been past the first chapter but based on the many things I have learned in my short life and from game from my mentors, this books is spot on.
Basically in one chapter it covers how negative emotions from a leader can trickle down to the followers. Instead of inspiring people they upset them.
One of my goals with We Got Beats LLC is to help turn the artists I work with into leaders, while at the same time becoming one myself.
We all help each other out here at We Got Beats…there’s no holding back, ulterior motives, backstabbing. None of those negative actions are tolerated.
Basically, to be a great leader, you must have a positive mindset. You must have one anyway to attract the good things and opportunities into your life anyway.
If you sit there and think negatively or pessimistic about your music then guess what? That is exactly what you will get out of your dream…
Why Did Your Start Doing Music In The First Place?
I want you to do this right after you’re done reading this post.
Take out a sheet of paper, write down a list of all the things you are grateful for.
Then, on the other side of the paper I want you to write down all the reasons you got into making music and why it is your passion.
If you can’t think of at least 10 you may need to re-evaluate why you are doing this. 10 should be fairly easy for you to think of.
Now, once that’s done read that list to yourself.
Think deeply about how you can benefit OTHERS via you’re music.
Think of how much impact you could have on someone’s life just by doing rap music.
Then you will have a great starting point of where to begin to see YOUR GREATNESS from your music career.
