Investing in Yourself to Grow Your Music Career

All right, so today we get to talk about something really cool, which is investing in yourself to grow your music career.

Do you know that right now, and I mean, right now I am going through a two-year intensive leadership program? Two flipping years!

12 to 15 hours of my life are sucked up by calls and meetings in clinics and training and development opportunities [every week]. Now, why the hell would anyone do that to themselves? Right?

Are the Same Things Stopping You Repeatedly?

Every year I invest in Kindles, courses, coaching, into mentorship. And honestly, I sometimes have a hard time understanding why people don’t do that because they just want to let life happen. And let problems happen and let the same things stop them over and repeatedly in trying to grow the music career that they love.

I don’t know. I think some people are just cool with sitting with their problems for months or years on end. If I’m sitting with the same problem for longer than three to six months, I’m ready for something else. I need a new course. I need a new program. I need a new mentor. I need something to guide me and lead me out of the desert and into the promised land.

How did you Invest in Yourself in the Last Year?

So go check your expenses. Look at what you spent on last year. How much money did you invest in yourself? Did you buy books and Kindles? Did you invest in programs? Did you get coaching and mentorship? And did you get the breakthroughs you were looking for?

I come out with new books every year, not necessarily because I must. More so because you probably need a new book. You’ve already read some of my material perhaps, and you only got so far, am I right? That’s because you need a fresh perspective.

You need a new way of looking at things. I’m constantly evolving, so I want to share that with you. I want to bring that into your world. I want to bring this enthusiasm and excitement and breakthrough and change into your world so that you can accomplish the results that you’re looking for in your music career.

The Time is Now

So, when will you start investing in yourself? Are you going to wait till tomorrow or are you going to start today? Tomorrow never comes really. Everyone says they’re going to start Monday, right? I’m going to quit smoking on Monday. I’m going to start working out on Monday.

It doesn’t work that way. You must start today and work through the pain.

I recently started working out again in February. I mean, before that, I was exercising and walking every day, but I wasn’t working out, and I couldn’t believe how painful that first workout was. It didn’t really make me want to get up and do that again. But you know what? I kept at it, and I worked my way up from one day a week to two days a week, to three days a week, to four days a week.

I’m away from home right now, so I’m on break from working out, but I was up to four days a week consistently, and now if I’m not working out four days a week, I get pretty antsy.

So, what are you going to be creating out of this? That is the question. Thanks for watching. Make sure to like, comment, subscribe, do all the things, and I’ll see you next time, Elite Players.
