I’ve noticed a growing trend popping up in many aspects of life, and that’s ENTITLEMENT.

 

“I DESERVE this”, “you MUST give me that”.

 

When demands get thrown around, more often than not this will be met by disappointment and resentment.

 

No more so does this occur than in the relationship between artists and record labels, where disagreements in the terms of a release can often lead to feelings of difficulty, frustration, and an...

There’s a truth in the saying “You are what you eat” and it also applies to what we surround ourseves with.

If we surround ourselves with negative influences, then our energy drops and our limiting beliefs will start to form and be reinforced and life of music becomes a real struggle but…

If we surround ourselves with positive influences, we feel inspired and we feel empowered to chase down our goals in both life and music.

As music producers we put a lot of personal value in the music that we create, but should we let it define us?

Definitely not!

This can be a dangerous game because when we do this, we get hurt by our own or someone else's opinion of our music. This can then lead us to avoiding writing music because we don’t want to hurt ourselves any further.

I see this scenario holding back a lot of music producers when they pin their own pers...

PERFECTIONISM!

We’ve all at one point suffered from this belief that everything we need to do and put out in the world needs to be perfect.

So we say things like:

“I don’t want to put this out there because it’s not perfect.”

“This track is still missing something so I need to keep working on it.”

“Everything is great but I think the drums can be better.”

STOP!

It doesn’t. It’s just perfectionism tightening its grip on you and holdin...

“I’m the person who does this…”
“I’m the person who does X everyday…”

Is it holding us back?
