Umm…. what if you really AREN’T good enough??
Are you sick of comparing yourself to other musicians who play naturally with effortless ease, while you keep feeling like you come up short?
? You’re trying to overcome an injury
? Physical tension prevents you from playing your best
? You didn’t have the best education and you developed too many bad habits
? Your performance anxiety keeps getting the better of you
? You just don’t have time to keep practicing and improve the way you should.
? You ignore the problem and pretend you’re satisfied with “good enough”…until the next time you get frustrated by a sub-par practice session or performance.
? You grab whatever time you can to keep practicing and work hard on your technique, wistfully imagining the day you’ll finally break through to the land of “effortless music-making”.
Unfortunately, none of that is really going to solve the problem, which has to do with an underlying belief lodged in your mind, which increases the tension in your body and makes everything you do with your instrument harder.
The uncomfortable truth is…
If you believe you’re not good enough…then, you’re right. ?
Believing you’re not good enough will literally cause your brain to look for and create proof of that, and pretty soon it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. ?
What you really need is a radical new way to shift your approach away from discomfort and effort in how you think, practice, and perform.
? Because if you want something to be effortless, you have to learn how to practice it… effortlessly. ?
Most musicians believe that if they keep struggling, working hard and practicing enough… one day they’ll be able to live up to their artistic ideals. The problem is, they aren’t looking at the problem from a holistic viewpoint, so they miss the big picture and micro-details of how everything is intimately interconnected.
It’s impossible to live up to your lofty ideals and truly feel “good enough” (or better!) without taking into account your whole self – mind, body, emotions, creative spirit – and how you bring your whole self to your instrument and how you make music.
The Art of Freedom® Method for conscious living and masterful artistry is the comprehensive system I’ve created to help musicians understand what’s at the root of your sense of “not good enough”, to help you recognize what needs to be changed, and to give you the precise tools to stop trying so hard… so you can let go and ALLOW real change to easily happen on its own.
