My goal for 2018 is to play bar chords on the guitar without that chunky thud that comes when one of strings hasn't been pushed down enough. Occasionally, I get the chord right and the sound is smooth and beautiful. Often the difference between a rough, flow stopping sound and smooth melodic sound is picturing what my fingers should look like playing perfectly...before they even get in position. According to my guitar zhar instructor, you have to envision every detail of performing the act beautifully and then half the work's done. Your fingers know where to go, the action becomes efficient, and beautiful music follows.
What's your goal for 2018? Can you picture what you look like performing it well? What's the environment? How are you feeling? What are you wearing? How do others respond to you? The more detailed your vision for a successful 2018, the greater your chances for achieving it. This truth resonates with guitar, it works in sports, and especially with your image. You've heard the expression, "fake it til you make it". Social psychologist, Amy Cuddy suggests you "fake it til you become it". But if you can envision your goals, put yourself in your own story and the clothes that will get there, there's no faking it. There's only making it. If you can envision it, and truly believe, dress the part and you'll achieve.
Let's get you achieving
and making the best music of your life in 2018.
