Pride In Your Work
“If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that... I believe in what I do, and I'll say it.” – John Lennon
I won’t waste time explaining who John Lennon is, after all – you’re already on a music website! It goes without saying that he was a fantastic talent. Any ego John Lennon had was well deserved. But what about you? Is it okay, even beneficial, for your ego to inflate as your music gets recognized?
In short, Yes! There are numerous advantages to having a healthy self-esteem. Self- confidence helps you manage life’s challenges, maintain a positive inner monologue, and bask in the glory of your accomplishments. A lack of self- esteem can hold you back from success, even if you have tons of talent.
Happier and more satisfied people take bigger chances, like the kind of chances that pay off in the music industry. You’ll never have the nerve to move to a new city, send out demo tapes, or walk right up to a music executive if you don’t believe in yourself. With self-confidence comes more ease in social situations. You’ll need this skill to meet new people who can further your career.
If you want to be more productive, more assertive, and more successful, allow yourself to be really proud of what you’ve already done. Dare yourself to dream of huge success, and most importantly, believe that you have what it takes to get there. No musician has ever made it big by thinking they weren’t good enough. The fears of growing an inflated ego are always out there and we’ve all heard the horror stories. Let go of that worry and let yourself be a proud as possible!
