It’s pretty apparent that fears can hold us back from really moving forward with our music. I’d like to take some time and address the three specific fears named in my previous blog.

Truth #1: We need risk. 

What if you don’t give it your all? Would you be satisfied with that? If music is just a hobby for you, then maybe the occasional coffeehouse gig is fantastic.

But for me, I think I’d feel like the person who never ventures outside of their house because they’re too afraid that they’ll get hit by a car on the street or that some other horrific thing will occur.

It appears that historically, great advancements weren’t made without risk, without trudging forward into some kind of uncertainty. Just look at any famous historical figure, really: Copernicus, Martin Luther, the American forefathers, Gandhi ji, Harriet Tubman; the list goes on and on.

OK, so maybe your musical endeavors don’t feel quite as noble as most of these people and what they pursued, but you get the idea, right? I mean, study up on Mozart or Beethoven a little. Those guys had to put themselves through risk also!

 

Truth #2: We can’t do it alone.

This extends into most everything else we do. We have relationships with others for a reason.

We can try and do it all on our own for a while, but once we get to a certain point, we may find it difficult to keep everything together. I’ve been my own salesman, booking agent, manager, songwriter, performer, designer, bookkeeper, and budgeter. Sure, it’s possible. But after I’ve spent 30+ hours a week researching and contacting venues for a two-week tour I find it difficult to really give the life and effort into playing music at home, let alone try to initiate the songwriting process. My musicality suffers because I’m wearing too many hats and balancing too many things.

If I’m going to take things up a level, I need help!

 

Truth #3: Often, the things worth the most are those that you suffer for.

Our favorite historical figures mentioned earlier also suffered for their pursuits. We have a tendency to think of them as God-like: well-calculated in all their moves, never missing a beat. But it seems that way because we know their stories. The truth is that they were regular people, just like you and me. They didn’t know what each of their actions and decisions would bring about, but they put the time and effort in for their various fields, and some even suffered persecution.

We also must put forth time and effort.

We’ll never know where we can go if we don’t take the risk.

Let’s enter the uncertainty.
