Have you ever asked yourself that question? Who am I? Well, if you haven’t already you really need to. Not just your name or what other people might look at you as, but who you really are to the person that looks in the mirror at their self every single day. That’s who I am talking about. To some it may be hard although, it shouldn’t be because the person you are has been with you for your entire life. It is you.
Find You First
Before you look see what type of music you should put out or if you should be a part of the music industry at all, you should find out who you are first and foremost. This is important because the audience that you want to attract has to understand who they are listening to. This also applies to the listener in some aspects as well.
When you are choosing what you want to listen to you always want to remember that although what the artist might be saying could be true for their own life, does not necessarily mean the same thing will be true for your life. Listen for the entertainment and not to go and try to reenact the negative music you hear because that would not be right.
Trust me, it will only make you lose yourself more. If you know who you are on the inside you won’t need a certain song to change who you are rather you should listen to music to help enhance the beauty that is already inside of you.
Don’t Mind The Hype
People often get caught in the mix when they are trying to find themselves. We often times find ourselves looking for others to help us figure it out. Now this can be a good or bad thing depending on who you are searching to help find those answers. Find people who encourage you to be productive and do positive things that cope with the things that you are already passionate about.
Don’t try to force yourself to be a part of the hype. Don’t follow the latest trend because more than not that trend will fade away and you will still be soul-searching. Peer pressure plays a big part and its hard for most people to not fall victim to it at some point. Even myself but one thing we must remember is that we are created as individuals and that applies to everyone.
Even twins have different finger prints and must know their own separate identities. No one is or should want to be exactly like someone else.
Be Who YOU Are
Being who you are is actually pretty easy if you think about it. We make it complicated when we step outside of the comfort zone of being ourselves. We start watching the popular people and wonder what its like to be them. Well do they even know who they are? You would be surprised at the people you see and admire are of times are often times really hiding behind a mask not really all that happy with themselves in real life.
Besides, being unique is and honor it is not by far a handicap in any way possible. Not being who you were created to be is the real handicap. And actually it’s ok to follow some trends and styles as long as when you look in the mirror you still see yourself for who you really are. That is ofcourse an individual human being that walk and thinks different from anyone else around them.
Be bright and be bold and the rest will fall into the right places. There is plenty room for edits and mistakes so don’t worry about. Worry about your happiness and your future of success!
