How To Position Yourself For Success……Without A Big Break!

Now that seems like a contradictory statement, How can you be successful without a big break? oh puleeze!! isn’t the big break meant to make one successful??

Hi friends,welcome to another exciting Monday,Music and Me. like i said previously this is where I will be sharing some tips on on-stage success and more, as a musician in a journey to purpose and relevance.

True long-lived success only come from your own effort,every creative starts at zero and learn their craft and business(well,I am yet to grasp fully the business side of this creative art I have been blessed with).Every one of us as creative artist struggles to find our voices whether as Christian Artists or otherwise.

As we thrive, to find our voice, we are also saddled with learning how to connect with our audience. The old good book says:

See a man diligent in his work,he shall stand before kings and not mean men”.Pro22:29 .Whether or not you get a “big” break it is important to be diligent,discipline and dedicated to your craft.

Positioning yourself as a musician has nothing to do with “big breaks” , I believe that every opportunity you get as a musician to positively impact and influence your audience and connect with them is always a major break.

So here are some tips to help:

*Focus on doing your work day in, day out: Sharpening your skill and craft on a daily basis  goes a long way to help any musician to be at the cutting edge of their musical career.” continous practice makes perfect”. 🙂

*Treat your creative work, like its your child: We all know how delicate children are,How they need to be nurtured to grow properly,That’s the way we ought to treat our craft with care, nurturing the gifting till they blossom and blossom.

*Stop giving strangers the key to your BMW: 🙂 You’re building a life doing something you love,by all means assemble a team and get help when and where it is necessary,but don’t be anxious to hand over the keys to your future to an agent, manager, publisher or label. It’s not as if you will assume the role of these ones,but it is important for you to know to understand all what building your music career entails,before plunging into that deep sea of agencies,management etc,more often than not they are actually there to use you craft to enrich themselves, its not that care so much about you…really!!

*Build Something no one can take away from: Get all the necessary information,because the use of information transforms your thinking and outlook to your musical career, read books,attend seminars,conferences .Be hungry for wisdom. Also get on other peoples shoulders,those who have achieved what you are aspiring to achieve.

*Know your Industry: Get to know your industry,know the media personnels,connect with folks in your industry who are making things happen for themselves. Sometimes,this might seem a little far-fetched because some of these folks can be a little difficult to reach but there are some who are always ready to lend their 2cents.

Finally on this note, Invest in yourself,believe in yourself,and Take your passion seriously.

Next to the word of God,the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world”-Martin Luther.
