Musicians; focus on what you can control

Updated: Aug 8, 2023

👉🏻The truth is that we don’t have as much control over situations and eventualities as we think we do.

💣Speaking from personal experience - I used to spend vast amounts of energy trying to. This could be anything from the very big to the very small.

✅When we start to realise the ONLY thing that we can really control is ourselves it can release us in a massive way from lots of anxieties and stresses in our lives.

🚦This can be in many different ways but it could be how we react to a situation or person.

🚨For the musicians amongst us looking to smash an audition or performance - Look to focus on the control of our emotions and getting REALLY prepared for the performance. Musicians; focus on what you can control

✅The next time you’re feeling anxious or stressed think about what YOU can do with YOU rather than about any of the externals in the situation. It might really help!
