Have you ever gone after a dream you had and felt so accomplished when you saw your dreams coming to life? The feeling that told you that you're not doing all that work for nothing. That you have a real chance of building the life you want for yourself and your family. That you can make a real difference in the world doing what you love to do.
Over and over again this year, my mind has just been blown away by the growing number of people that has listened to my music. The emails and messages I get from new fans saying how much they love my music and has shared it with others. Fans asking how they can buy my music when I have nothing to sell yet.
"Your music is really worth listening to daily. I'm looking forward to the new songs..."
"Today your N1M page has been distributed to all my social accounts. Let's raise your army of fans! Your music is worth listening to and definitely worth buying."
"...I've been listening to your music for the last couple days non-stop. I played your music for my friends at a dinner party and everybody instantly loved it!"
Then there's the number of times my untitled GarageBand song has hit #1 the past two years on N1M.com's Minnesota Electronica chart. It doesn't even have a name yet, and people are falling in love with it!
I truly means the world to me to know that what is so deeply ingrained in me (wanting to create music) is something that I can express in so many different ways and have it be received well by others. I mean, I would still create music if I was the only one who could ever hear it, but to be able to share it and have people live it just makes the creating process much more satisfying and rewarding.
What dream are you working towards right now that you're gaining traction in? Or is there a dream you haven't worked towards yet out of fear of failing or something else? I'd love to hear about it. You can comment on this blog post and I will respond! I'm cheering you on towards the life you want to create for yourself. If I can do it now in my mid 40s, you can make things happen, too!
