How Fleetwood Mac Helped My Online Business
I’m a HUGE music lover!
It’s no secret that I LOVE Rock and Roll.
I’ve been a drummer for years, since I was 16 (although you can’t tell from my profile picture)
Psychologists have long confirmed the power of music over our subconscious mind and emotions.
An article on the Globe and Mail website had this to say in the post “Why Does Music Motivate Us”:
“Indeed much of music's power lies in its ability to elicit emotional reactions and enhance mood.
Recent neuroimaging investigations have allowed a dramatic increase in our understanding of how different networks of emotion- and motivation-related brain regions are recruited to produce these effective experiences.
From the visceral shiver running down one's spine, to the sense of empowerment that can arise from a good set of lyrics, or intensely positive memories associated with a favorite piece of music.”
Below are the lyrics of one of the most motivating songs I know, “Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac, one of the greatest bands of all time.
The words to this song have motivated me for years, and as each year goes by they motivate me even more.
Really, how many times have you felt like this, “you wake up and don’t want to smile.”
I know I have.
But if we just “open our eyes” and see the possibilities the day can bring, you really can “see things in a different way.”
When EVERYTHING is going wrong, and sometimes it will, this is the attitude you MUST have to persevere!
“Tomorrow” is when your goals and dreams will be realized.
You MUST convince yourself that “it’ll soon be here. It’ll be, better than before.”
The mistakes you made “yesterday” are “gone” in the sense that you can’t do a single thing to change what happened “yesterday.”
Just let it go!
When we visualize how we want our life to be, we “think about the times to come, and not about the things that you've done.”
For many of us, our past was not very good. I can honestly tell you that my life did not turn out the way I expected.
The song says “If your life was bad to you, Just think what tomorrow will do”.
Again, looking forward and working for a better tomorrow for ourselves and our families is the reason why 90% of us are here at Wealthy Affiliate.
We cannot waist time – “tomorrow” will be here before you know it.
However, whether I’ll be “better than before” is completely up to me.
I’m the only one that can make my life better through personal development.
If I’m convinced that my life “I’ll be, better than before”, then I will do everything in my power to reach my daily goals.
Even when I fail, and there will be plenty of failures, “Yesterday’s gone, Yesterday’s gone”.
DON’T DWELL ON THE PAST!
Dwelling on the past, especially a painful one, will hinder your personal growth.
You should use the past ONLY to motivate you, to make you more determined to never go through the PAIN again.
Find what motivates YOU and use it to grow your business. Keep a playlist of music that inspires and moves you to greater activity!
