Why Confronting Your Mortality Can Make You A Better Musician

Have you wondered how it would feel to be free from doubt, worry, and other limiting emotions? When you confront your own mortality you gain courage to act in spite of these emotions because it changes your perspective.

Questions are important when it comes to this. Ask yourself these questions to start thinking differently now.

Here are some for you to ask yourself:

  1. If today was my last day on earth what would I do?

  2. If today was my last day, would I do what I'm about to?

  3. If I had 30 days to live what would I do?

  4. Would I care what other people thought if today was my last day on earth?

  5. Is worrying about this going to matter if this was my last week on earth?

Now let's look at how this will make you a better musician.


You Stop Giving A F*ck

You don't care what people say, think, or do. Talk about liberating! People's comments and opinions are a large part of your career. Imagine if you didn't care about any of this?

In the case of creating, you make music for the love of making music. You unleash your creativity in authentic ways that not many can tap into. You now put that energy of caring what other people think towards making music. The possibilities are endless with no limitations!




Take More Risks

Not taking risks is one way you won't achieve anything in life. You realize you are going to die one day and bring this perspective to the present moment. You gain leverage to take risks in order to succeed.

"There's no reward in life without risk"

- Barry Farber

You Work Harder

Now that you know you are going to be resting for a long time, you can give all you have to your craft. Hard work is one component but it is a very important one when it comes to success.

You can give all your energy while alive and rest when you cease to exist. Use this for energy to keep going way after the rest gave up and went home.

You'll be the last one standing!





Confronting your mortality can lead you to be an unstoppable musician. This perspective allows you to act in spite of limiting emotions in order to make decisions aligned with becoming great.

Come back to this post to give yourself the consistent ability to take actions you need to succeed!
