Songwriters: Tell Yourself These 5 Things Each Morning
1)This could be the day that changes everything. One Tuesday, I walked into a room and wrote a song that became the most played song of the year. Prior to that day, I had been worried about losing my writing deal. One day can change it all.
2) One monster song is all it takes. It only takes one hit song to launch a career. Whatever has happened before that doesn’t matter. Concentrate on writing a monster song TODAY and don’t let your past define you.
3) I am prepared and ready to write. If I know that I’m well rested and prepared to write, it gives me confidence going into the session. If I’ve done everything I can do to be in a good writing frame of mind, them I’m much more likely to write a hit.
4) I could write the best song I’ve ever written TODAY! If I have learned from all of my past failures, then the song I write today should, logically, be the best I’ve ever written. If I keep writing a little better every day, I will succeed one day.
5) I’m going to give this song everything I’ve got. I try to give my co-writers and the song everything I have each day. I dig deep and I keep at it until I believe that everything about the song is right. I can rest easy at night if I know I gave all I had.
One of the keys to BECOMING a great songwriter is to start thinking like one. Tell yourself these things every morning. Get pumped up. And write your heart out!!
