Nothing prepares you for the amount of self-belief; persistence and networking you need to stay on top of your game in the music industry. One common thing I hear troubling artists I work with is inconsistent energy levels, self –sabotage and poor self esteem. You can be the most talented person on the planet, but getting swept up in all of the big energies can really send you for a spin.

So, how do you remain focused, motivated and on point when there are so many late nights and a ton of emotions bringing you down? AND most importantly how do you stay connected to your intuition when there are so many crazy distractions these days?

Here are a 4 ways to stay in the game when everything seems completely overwhelming

  • Recognise when you are feeling low and suffering negative emotion. Rather than fight it, acknowledge it, and know that’s its OK to feel lousy. A great way to bounce back is to take action in an area you love – write a song, call a fellow artist, or your coach, do something that uplifts you.
  • Are you invested in a self-care routine? Looking after yourself on a deep level, will completely transform your life. Find a self-care routine that works for you. Make it a priority. My things are, journaling, meditation, walks, yoga AND at least 30 mins alone time a day to peace out and have a cuppa.
  • Forget putting pressure on yourself to be famous overnight, and if you are famous and have pressure, think about WHY you are doing what you are doing and start feeling inspired rather than under pressure. Practice patience by knowing everything is on its way and stay connected to your self.
  • Do you have goals? Big or small, it is great to life experiences you are working towards that inspire you. I have found that the most successful way to do this is short-term goals and long-term goals. What would success feel like in 6 months, 12 months and 2 years? Personal and career.

I hope this has inspired you to keep going on your music journey, take care of your mindset first and literally you can do anything.

Forever your Wing Woman,
