You Have to Want It BAD

You may be reading these words because you’re trying to motivate yourself to make changes in your life. Perhaps something to do with your music business career, or perhaps something else. Whatever it've got to really want it, because although there is always "ease" to it, change isn't always easy.

Whether you have a solid goal in mind and searching for the incentive to make it work or you simply need a little push to do something more than you’ve done so far – these words are only as good as your own desire to break out of whatever holds you back.

No matter how motivated you are at the starting line, you won’t take charge of your life until you decide that you want change badly enough. If you don’t truly want to change at a core level, you won’t be able to keep going.

What many of us do is try to trick ourselves into thinking we’re ready for change, but this falsehood makes itself apparent at the first sign of an obstacle in our path. Suddenly we realize that we don’t want it as badly as we thought, and we turn back again.

In order to develop the burning desire that acts like fuel to propel you toward your dreams, you have to decide that there IS no going back. Close the door you just walked through by deciding that your existing circumstances are absolutely unacceptable and you can’t stand them a moment longer. You have to decide that you’re sick to death of playing small, that you’re ready to do whatever it takes to make some changes, and then you have to commit to TAKE ACTION!

You will only be successful at this if your goals are important enough to empower and inspire you even in the face of obstacles. What makes a goal important?

Choose a goal that makes you feel incredibly passionate. Make it something that MEANS something to you. The more passionate you are about your goals, the more likely you will be to continue on through obstacles and challenges, and the greater your chances for success will be.

You should also feel excited about the possibility of change in your life. Stir up your emotions and allow yourself to be filled with excitement and awe about the possibilities before you. This may prove challenging because many of us have become so accustomed to holding an attitude of resignation and defeat that we’ve forgotten how to get really excited about something. Learn how to let your emotions run wild and fuel your desire for positive change, and you will find yourself with a greater amount of motivation than you’ve ever experienced before.

Finally, your goals should be life-changing. Don’t pick a goal just for the sake of having something to do with your time. Make it a goal that will have powerful, life-changing effects. Whether your goal is related to your career, health, family, romantic life or anything else, you’ve GOT to make it something that will have a huge impact on you and your life circumstances. Make it something that would so drastically change your life that you’d never be tempted to settle into mediocrity again.
