Hey, friend! Do you feel lost as to whether or not to pursue a music career? How do you know if it's for you? I have 3 easy ways to figure that out.
1. You can't stop talking about music
Music is your passion. If you had to talk about one topic for the rest of your life, it would be music. You can't get enough of it. You love sharing with your friends and family new music that you've listened to, played, or wrote. You're obsessed!
2. People stop and stare when you play or sing
You give people a transformational experience - big or small - when you're playing or singing. People love to hear you in your element. They can't get enough of your musical skills. Maybe you even bring people to tears. Whatever you do, people want more.
3. You don't know when to quit
This might be the biggest way to determine whether or not a music career is right for you. A career in this field is not for the faint of heart. You need moxie, chutzpah, and a resiliency towards rejection.
If you got a terrible gut feeling when reading these 3 ways, then a music career might not be in God's plan for you. And that's okay! Don't beat yourself up. There are tons of other careers out there. If you got excited and yelled, "These are all me!" in your heart or maybe even out loud, then a music career is where you should head. Go for it! Pursue your dreams! Don't let anything diminish your flames.
Keep pursuing your dreams!
