Four Important Steps to Go Through If You Want to Achieve Big Results With Your Guitar Playing
What are the one biggest thing that will determine whether you succeed on the guitar or not?
Is it how talented you are?
Is it how hard you work?
Is it the way you dress and work?
The single most important thing that will determine your long-term success on guitar is your ability to use your mind.
It sounds simple. However, with the majority of guitar players I meet. The only reason why they are not better than they can be, and should be. Is their ability to use their mind for success on the guitar.
There are specific ways to use your mind and ways not to. A lot of students hold themselves back due to self-doubt when it comes to playing the guitar. They don’t know whether they can do it or not. Which is why gaining self-confidence is so important.
I’m going to outline the simple process that will help you gain self-confidence in yourself so that you can achieve massive results on the guitar.
Having belief that you can make a lot of progress on the guitar
It’s important that you have the belief that you can do this. Whether you want to be able to jam with friends or improvise. Perform, songwriting. Etc. etc. It’s all achievable.
Belief is based on faith in the direction that you are taking. There are different ways that you can create your own belief system to help you with your guitar playing.
- Having someone who supports you and shows you exactly what you need to do such as a guitar teacher or a positive supportive environment.
- Seeing someone else achieve it who is inspiring for you. Maybe they are similar to you and have done exactly what you want to do. You might think, if they have done it, so can I!
- The consistent result from the practise and learning you put into guitar, and being able to compare the progress.
Having one or all these elements of things will help you believe you are capable of doing what you want on the guitar.
Your belief system will drive your guitar playing potential
The more you believe you can play the guitar the way you want to. And you have the right vehicle to get you there. The more you will get excited about guitar which will drive you to use more of your potential through increased mental energy and focus on your guitar playing.
