David Andrew Wiebe, April 2021Demonstrate enthusiasm. Have an attitude of gratitude. Think positively.

Turns out there’s more to this than hollow platitudes and impossible ideals.

Energy can make the difference. If you set yourself on fire, the world will clamor around to watch.

What you’re saying doesn’t matter as much as how you’re saying it (which isn’t to say what you’re saying doesn’t matter).

Good vibes are hard to find. The world is overwhelmingly negative.

If you’re lit up, you will instantly separate yourself from the crowd.

That doesn’t mean you should fake enthusiasm. Not at all. Authenticity still shines bright in a dark sky.

And this is not more beating the drum of “let’s get pumped up and walk on hot coals!” Icarus will plunge to his doom flying too close to the sun.

What I’m saying is:

Showing up will get you passing grades. But showing up enthusiastic and full of life is going to bring a crowd. Because people are starved for that.

So, if you haven’t been the best version of yourself, and it hasn’t been working, try something else. Shift your energy. You have nothing to lose.

With that, here’s what I created for you this week:

Random Things I Dig

I’ve been playing a bit of Cyber Shadow lately. It’s a real solid game.

You were born to make music. It’s a calling.

But some days you feel like giving it all up.

You see people who are more talented and more prolific. And they have a larger social media following than you.

To add insult to injury, gigs have been cancelled. Is it even possible to make an income from your passion?

Why try? The odds seem stacked against you.

You don’t need to quit. You don’t need to give up. You don’t even need to change your approach.

What you need is a mindset makeover.

Read The Renegade Musician and reclaim your uniqueness, creativity, and calling.

You were born to do this.
