In order to realise your dreams you need to have the right mental attitude. Here are my top 10 tips to help you take your guitar playing to where you want it to be.
Set your goal and focus on it 100%
First you need to figure out what you really want to achieve out of playing guitar. If you know what your dreams are then you can set goals and start working towards them. For example say your greatest goal is to tour the world with your band, write that shit down and give yourself a deadline!
Be ambitious and believe in yourself
Confidence has always been an issue for me. I always knew I wanted to be a guitarist but was advised not to become one because it’s “too competitive”. In reality, there’s plenty of room for more guitar players, songwriters, luthiers, or whatever you dream of being. If you want something enough, and believe you can achieve it, then you’ll find a niche for yourself in that field.
Top Tip – If a lack of confidence is holding you back, try picking a short mantra that sums up what you want to be or do. For example, top guitarist, successful songwriter, skilled luthier. Now make that your password so that every time you log onto your computer, or your favorite websites, you reinforce your goals.
