So many people would love to be famous musicians, or otherwise involved in the music industry. However, we are told again and again that only the lucky few, those who accidentally get discovered, have any chance of making it. As a result, we leave our dreams as just that: dreams. While it is certainly true that there is a great deal of luck involved with really breaking through in the music industry, there are a few things you can do yourself as well. Let’s take a look.
- Forget About Realistic Goals
A realistic goal in the music industry is to go to music college and perhaps become a teacher. While it is certainly a great idea to go to college, why not set your sights higher? You have to think positive, attract what you really want out of life, not what you can realistically achieve. Behave like someone who has made it already, and you will stand out from the crowd. But be careful to not become a diva!
- Manifest what You Want
There is such a thing as the ‘Law of Attraction’, perhaps best described in the book ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. What this teaches you is that you have to not just believe that you can make it, but genuinely know that you can. In so doing, you send out the energy that is required to come back to you to actually achieve those dreams. If you want to be a famous musician, you need to act like one!
- Start Living
The only way you will ever be successful in the music industry is if you also live your life. You can’t sit and wait for something to happen, no matter how much you try to manifest your dreams. You have a life to live, bills to pay, friends to make, love to give. This isn’t going to happen overnight, so you need to live a life that is fulfilling, today.
- Know Why You Want to Be a Famous Musician
A lot of people want to be famous simply because fame sounds pretty good. Of course, the money would help as well. But that isn’t enough. You can become famous through other things, you can earn money through work or by winning the lotter. You need to have real reasons as to why you want to become a musician and not, say, a property developer, the next President of the United States, or an actor.
- Know What You’re Doing
This actually goes back to the first point – go to college. Music is an industry with a lot of intricacies and it is about more than having a nice voice or having a talent for an instrument.
