What You Believe Is What You Receive

by Madalyn Sklar

This line, What You Believe Is What You Receive, comes from a CD I have in my possession. The band is Manifest Frequency. They have these words on the backside of their latest CD and it got me thinking because I'm currently re-reading Joe Vitale's The Attractor Factor. You might remember him from The Secret.

So what do you believe? What are you putting out there?

In The Attractor Factor Vitale talks about how no matter what is happening in your life it can be another way. You can change your direction because nothing is set in stone. Think about that.

Manifest Frequency says, "focus on what you want, not what stands in your way. Believe that if you feel it, you can have it!"

If you feel stuck with your music this thinking will help you. Focus is definitely one of the keys to success in life. Focus on what you want. Don't let things like you're too old or not hip enough stand in your way of success in this business. If you believe in what you do, good things will follow. Believe in your music. Believe in yourself.

If you have self doubts you must overcome them. Everything starts with you. Make great music. Promote it constantly. Put yourself out there. Nothing happens unless you are out there making connections and taking advantage of every opportunity that comes your way.
