Being an independent artist can take you on an emotional rollercoaster as you struggle to attain fame, fortune, and a loyal fanbase. The slow climb to victory may leave you feeling doubtful in your ability to make it in music.
While these feelings are not pleasant, they are typical of the process. It is perfectly normal to feel that you should be further in life, especially when you are passionate about your work and know that people will benefit from it.
Here are three tips for overcoming self-doubt and realizing that you are worthy and capable of fulfilling your dreams.
Speak positivity in everything that you do. Practice verbally saying positive affirmations daily. As you continue to express your goals and compliment yourself aloud, you will begin to act on what you’re saying.
Surround Yourself With Good People
Having supportive people in your circle can go a long way. Keep people close to you who want to see you win and who will uplift you once you doubt yourself.
Write Down Your Accomplishments
Many people write down their goals but try writing down your accomplishments. Many times, when we are working vigorously towards a dream, it is easy to forget everything that we have done. Writing down your achievements allows you to see how far you’ve come and reminds you to keep going.
We only want the best for you, which means not giving up. While the occasional dose of self-doubt is expected from time to time, never dwell on it and allow it to consume you.
Don’t give up!
