What If We Could Do Anything We Wanted?

by Madalyn Sklar

I know, sounds silly. But really, what if we could do anything we wanted like fly to the moon or sell 1,000,000 records. Why does it have to be so far fetched? Why do people always tell us we can't do it? Because it's drastic? I think it's time to set the world straight with your goals, aspirations and dreams. If your goal is to make a living with your music, doing it full-time, then you need to start making that dream come true NOW. What are you waiting for?

I know, I know, life keeps us on a short leash. There is never a good time to start something new. There is never enough money in the bank to venture out on our own. There are not enough hours in the day to pursue our true happiness, our true passions.

Why?

I question this because you should not let things hold you back. If you truly love slinging burgers for a living, good for you! Most of us are stuck in a job we hate. Hate may not even be a strong enough of a word to describe what you feel. But you know what I mean.

So how do you break free from the prison chains?

It's starts with you and now. There is no better time to make your dreams a reality than right this minute. What is the one thing you want to do most in this world? Start right now with steps to making it happen. I don't mean quitting your job today and joining the circus tomorrow. I mean make a well thought out effort to start a plan. Everything starts with a plan. Write down what you want. What are your dreams and goals? I know for most of you that would be doing music full-time, touring and selling tons of CDs. That's great!

Get pen and paper. Write it all down. Set goals and deadlines. Deadlines are key. It's what holds you accountable. Even better is sharing this with a trusted friend who can help you stay focused and on track. Or a music business coach like myself. If you follow these steps you have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
