We are all scared of many things. Some of are scared of spiders, some of us are scared of heights, some of us are scared of speaking in public, and the list goes on. Fear is really our body’s normal self-preservation system. We are scared of the unknown, we are scared of not being in control.
But especially when you are trying to make it in the music business, you need to understand that in most cases your fear is a great indicator of things that might make you grow. We need to take risks, we need to step in the unknown. If we only stay in our comfort zone, we will never bring our music past the bedroom door.
So learn to embrace fear. Use it to recognise things that might just be some of the big leaps. Take risks and learn to enjoy the adrenaline rush you get from facing your fears.
