Honest

The word honest is defined as being free from fraud or deception : legitimate, truthful. In the music industry above all else you have to be honest with yourself. You have to think about all of the hard work and effort that it takes to be successful. You have to ask yourself if you honestly are prepared to put in the hours of writing the hours of recording and the hours of performing. On top of that you also have to log in time for networking and other functions. You have to honestly ask yourself are you ready to work with others and are you ready for the constructive criticism that sometimes comes up when trying to finalize projects. Truth be told if you cant answer yes to all those questions.... You have to really think about the level of commitment that's being put into your craft.

Commitment

Many of the short and long-term goals we wish to accomplish in life are achievable. They require focus and commitment. A total commitment is paramount to reaching maximum levels of performance. In my history, dealing with people of all ages ethnicity and backgrounds. The trouble with most of us is that our demands upon ourselves are so feeble, the call upon the greatness within of us is so weak and intermittent that it makes no impression on the creative sector of the brain. Basically at the end of the day it lacks the force that it needs to transform desires into realities. Commitment is the difference between having just a simple idea or actually taking the necessary steps to see the thought pushed to its farthest potential.

Business Minded

Leaders instill in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals. They don't wait or stand by and watch from the side.

INNER POWER

It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to outcast them, more 'manhood' to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind. Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the things that we are doing. Remember strength does not come from physical attributes alone. It comes from an indomitable will to win
