Why do you want to be a successful musician?

Have you ever asked yourself why do you want to be a successful musician? Many people looking for the new methods to promote their music didn’t ever answered that question. I think that’s crucial because each of us has a lot of common desires in the aftermath of success. But what really is success in the music industry?

There might be a lot of explanations – fame in the limelight, wealth, prestige, rock star lifestyle, adventure. Life with passion. We were born to achieve our life purpose and transcend it. Success is measured differently by everyone.

I always wondered how my life would look like if I had no passion.
I would probably hovering around the apartment, sitting at the computer for hours and watching stupid videos on youtube. Life would slipping through my fingers and my butt would be square-shaped from sitting continuously on a chair. Yeah, it really sucks.

Once, when I played a concert and returned to the bedroom after hours I felt incredibly satisfied of what I’m doing. I remember that a lot of people came to our concert. I realized that it really makes sense.

Then I scratched on my notebook something like this:

I don’t want to sit in the office from 9 to 5 and pretend to work.
I don’t want to work on project that I don’t care about.
I don’t want to have a boss who don’t give a shit about my life.
I don’t want to do what I don’t like.
I don’t want to stress myself in work.
I don’t want to take the overtime to pay my bills off.
I don’t want to loose my energy and talent.

Instead

I want to spend my time with my family.
I want to share my music.
I want to feel fulfillment.
I want to live the nonconformist lifestyle.
I want to develop my talents.
I want to do what I’m best.
I want to help people to achieve their lifetime success.
I want to have a fun.

And it was that simple. I have just written down these sentences about 3 am and felt that everything is achievable for me if only I have determination.
