The Key To Infinite Self Confidence

If confidence in someone else is built on that person keeping their promises, it’s only logical that self-confidence is built on making good on the promises you make to yourself.


Fulfill the promises you make to yourself and you will lead a fulfilling life, with a fulfilling career.


Self-confidence is a driving force behind success and fulfillment in any field, and the music business is no exception. It’s absolutely crucial to recognize that your self-confidence plays a pivotal role in your journey towards achieving your goals, realizing your artistic vision and overall fulfillment. In this blog post, we explore a simple but powerful concept that can unlock your self-confidence: making it a point to make good on any promises you make to yourself.

The Significance of Promises

Promises are not limited to commitments make to others; they also include the vows we make to ourselves. As artists, we create artistic visions, and make promises to fulfill them. These promises may include practicing consistently, experimenting with new sounds, writing better lyrics, making a certain amount of music, honing our stage presence, or pushing the boundaries of our creativity. However, if we consistently fail to follow through on these promises, our self-confidence can suffer, hindering our progress in the process. Everyone can relate to that horrible feeling you get when you fail to uphold a promise you’ve made to yourself. In order to build and maintain self-confidence, it’s important to keep our promises. And in order to keep our promises, it’s important to start off by making promises that we know for a fact, we could actually fulfill. This is something that goes beyond just music. And is a powerful concept that’s easily applied to all facets of life.


Building Self-Confidence
  1. Set Realistic Goals: Begin by setting realistic and achievable goals that align with your long-term vision. Break them down into smaller milestones that can be accomplished within specific timeframes. This allows you to celebrate victories along the way and maintain a sense of progress.

  2. Create an Action Plan: Once you have identified your goals, develop a detailed action plan outlining the steps required to achieve them. Be specific and proactive in outlining the tasks and commitments necessary to move forward. Remember, it is crucial to prioritize consistency over sporadic bursts of effort. This means putting in one hour everyday for a week, rather than putting in seven hours for just one day per week.

  3. Prioritize Accountability: Hold yourself accountable for the promises you make. Consider sharing your goals and action plan with a trusted friend, mentor, or fellow artist who can provide support and help keep you on track. Regular check-ins and honest conversations about progress can be invaluable in maintaining accountability. It’s important you actually allow your friend to hold you accountable. Meaning you won’t get mad at them for calling out your poor choices or behavior. Realize they’re in your corner and actually want what’s best for you.

  4. Embrace Growth and Adaptability: The music industry is constantly evolving, and as an artist, it is essential to embrace growth and adaptability. Be open to learning new skills, exploring different genres, and pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone. Each step taken towards personal and artistic growth will strengthen your self-confidence.

  5. Celebrate Small Victories: Acknowledge and celebrate each small victory along your journey. Recognize that even the smallest accomplishments contribute to your overall progress. By celebrating your achievements, you reinforce a positive mindset and boost your self-confidence.

  6. Learn from Setbacks: Setbacks are an inevitable part of any journey. Instead of allowing setbacks to break down your confidence, view them as opportunities for growth and learning. Reflect on the lessons learned, adjust your approach, and keep moving forward. In due time you’ll find all of the setbacks you’ve experienced are just as important as the victories.

  7. Always Maintain Integrity: Don’t compromise on your personal values for anyone or anything. Maintaining integrity is crucial in both building and maintaining your self-confidence. Do not lower your moral standards, ever, seriously. Whatever it is, it’s rarely ever worth it if it requires compromising on your self-worth.

  8. Prioritize Consistency: Instead of keeping track of your progress, keep track of your efforts. Your career could drastically improve overnight due to the influence of third parties, whereas your efforts are completely in your control. To build and maintain confidence, it's important to focus on things that are within your control. To keep track of your consistency, build a planning system that works for you. Perhaps a simple daily checklist. By keeping track of your efforts, you’re easily able to reflect on everything you’ve done in the past. This will prove crucial if you ever hit a low point, so you can look back and be proud of your past efforts in an attempt to regain momentum.


By consistently prioritizing self-improvement, you’ll also find all the victories along the way will start forming an undeniable stack of proof. Proving that you are who you say you are. And proving you are actually moving towards the goals you say you’re moving towards.


Conclusion

Self-confidence is essential for navigating challenges, embracing opportunities, and realizing our full potential. By understanding that self-confidence is built upon making good on the promises we make to ourselves, we can set realistic goals, create actionable plans, prioritize accountability, and embrace growth. This is not an overnight transformation, (though it might be) but rather a continuous process of self-improvement. Stay committed, stay focused, keep fulfilling the promises you make to yourself, and your self-confidence will soar to new heights, along with your career.
