Getting Off the Struggle Bus: Are You Unconsciously Pushing Away Your Success?
Are you on the Struggle Bus? Do you wonder sometimes if you unconsciously push away your success? Do you wonder if and when you’ll ever get the opportunity to share your music with the world? Or just feel more successful in life overall?
While some things we don’t have control over, there are some right under our nose that we overlook – keys to the kingdom so to speak. Sometimes it’s the very words we speak that we create our reality with.
Words have power. The words I am referring to are the ones you speak out loud and the ones you mutter to yourself. Truth is words can create success or push it away and you might never even realize it’s all within your power. And if you use words wisely, they can change your life.
It’s neuro-science – words and thoughts are energy, carry a life force and they have an impact on your inner and outer world – they are carving your life minute by minute and reflect your world right back to you.
What you say and think sets your brain to work setting you on or off course. And the tricky thing is that the subconscious brain does not distinguish a good thought from bad – it totally accepts whatever you tell it. So you can imagine if you are feeding your brain with fearful or negative thoughts (try to count how many times they occur on a daily basis – you’ll be amazed)… what message are you sending to yourself? Thoughts are like seeds planted in the fertile ground of your brain that with daily watering, grow into sturdy plants that can withstand even the power of your will.
To take back your power and get control, you can tap in – tune in – to what’s going on internally. It’s about listening to feelings and emotions – and following hunches. A great way to do that is to meditate. Guided or active meditation is a great way to start, especially when you are not used to being still and going within. And – you can change your mindset if you set your intention and focus on it daily.
I met a woman this weekend, who has an 8 figure business and an abundant successful life, who said that the single reason for her success was 100% mindset. What you tell yourself in your head will make it or break it.
I see so many artists who are on the “struggle bus” wondering how and when their break is going to come, yet it is their mindset that holds them back – not opportunity. This is such an important element of success – matter of fact success cannot be obtained without it – that I am putting together a new program launching this Fall to teach artists not only how to set up their business and systems for success, but how to plan for it in their vision and transition their mindset to draw their success to them.
One of my students who came to me struggling on that bus; within a year we not only got her off that bus, but she now has a record deal and is well on her way to fulfilling her dream.
Try this: Every day for one week, write down every time you have a negative thought. Another option is to wear one of your favorite rubber bracelets and every time you catch a negative thought – switch your bracelet to the other arm. Count how many times you switch. What if you could change this one thing? You could completely transform your life and career!
Then go to our Facebook Page, post your progress and see what others are saying. Stay open to the blessings that are waiting for you.
P.S. For a quick read check out don Miguel Ruiz’s book The Four Agreements (NY Times bestseller). The #1 agreement is: Be Impeccable with Your Word, Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of the word in the direction of truth and love.
P.P.S. If you’re ready to stop the excuses, step up, stand in your own power as an artist and get the coaching you need to transform your music career – send me an Application. I have 3 (only) very special spots available for new students this Fall and I’m looking for you if you are really ready to go big.
