The ‘end’ product. Wanting to be where you imagine yourself in the near future. Wanting to be like someone else.
!Wanting to be something that ΥΟU can’t judge!
Known most of the time as running before you can walk. What struck me to write this, is that I hear even people succeeding to succeed to run their own business who are trying to sell their products, wanting to be like someone else. ‘She has this and that’, ‘He’s doing this…’ etc. etc. etc.
Running before you can walk. We all do it from time to time. Some more than others and I was that some. But what’s wrong with being you? It’s cool to admire a person that you associate your ‘end goal’ to be. I would love to be in plenty of other world percussionists’ shoes; touring the world, playing with the top players of today. Though that’s where you can come to a halt and you get into the running a little too much. All to often it’s common to get so involved that you end up trying to be like that person, like your ideal place of success.
But we can’t be somebody else. Genetically, physically and psychologically we are all unique to our own being. It’s not possible to be exactly like another because no matter how hard we try, no matter how skilful one is, we’ll always do it differently.
On that matter — Do you we really know ourselves? Be your own person.
The first step? Stop trying to be somebody else.
With this simple and effective step, you can begin to uncover how you tick and really understand you. Enjoy the process of reaching your goals, the ups and downs, the doubts the successes. See each and every part of the path you’re on. Through this, you’re going to spot what you need to do in order to go towards the right direction.
I used to get so caught up, attempting to play drums to tracks that were way out of my depth, until it was pointed out to me I didn’t even realise that the fundamentals behind the really complex stuff just wasn’t up to scratch. How could I even get to that ‘end goal’ if the foundations weren’t solid?!
It’s a tough lesson to learn but the sooner you learn, the quicker you walk.
I hope you are all enjoying my blogs. From since I begun, they’ve turned more into generic life lessons I’ve learnt through music and that being a musician is more than just the music. I hope to share my own music with you all, once I’ve developed my own profile enough in the next year.
I’m currently back in my hometown, Bath. It’s great to get out of Cardiff for a little while, to rest and recharge the batteries to come back bigger and stronger.
To you guys for reading, liking and to those following.
