How To Get The Best Opportunities From Music Companies & Become A Massively Successful Musician
by Tom Hess
Your chances of getting signed by a music company go through the roof when you develop a success-focused mindset. Music companies spot this quality immediately (and are always looking for people who think in this manner).
Here is a common example of the difference your mindset makes when trying to work with music companies:
1. Having a poor mindset creates thoughts like this: “Record companies are greedy and only care about making money. They make money by screwing musicians and grow richer at the musicians’ expense.”
Result: Music companies don't want to work with you, but it doesn’t matter because you never even make much effort to get signed.
2. Having an average mindset creates thoughts like this: “It’s understandable that record companies need to make money, because they use it to invest in the music of the artists they work with.”
Result: You are more likely to work with a record company, but there is nothing about you that sets you apart from every other musician. This doesn’t give music companies a strong enough reason to invest their time and money into you.
3. Having a great, success-focused mindset creates thoughts like this: “It’s in my (the musician’s) best interest that the record company makes as much money as humanly possible, because with their money (and resources) they have the power to grow my career. I know that making money is what record companies care about, therefore I will do everything I can to make record companies make as much money as possible, so they want to invest as much as possible into my career (because we both win when they do).”
Result: THIS is what music companies are desperately looking for. When you have a win/win mindset like this, you become the obvious choice above anyone else. This mindset shows that you have the work ethic and desire to help the company make money for a long, long time.
Bottom line - It’s obvious that a success-minded musician is going to get all the opportunities here, because he offers so much more than the others.
Applying this to every aspect of your music career makes you the best choice to work with and guarantees success in anything you do. Read this music career article to get see examples that demonstrate how a success-oriented mindset works.
