Do you want to be a successful singer? You can be. It is in your grasp, and it is certainly within your control. Count on it!

Successful people are not born that way. They empower themselves to create their own reality and are aware that the only limitations on their accomplishments are those imposed by themselves. Successful singers are committed. They remain completely in control of their own destiny. Successful singers believe they can succeed. Their attitudes, being right, result in appropriate behavior. Therefore they perform consistently well at their own level.

How do you learn to expect success? Here is an easy four-step program and some simple exercises to see you on your way.

1. Your first step is to achieve self-awareness.
The more aware you are of how you view yourself, of what you are saying and thinking about
yourself, the more likely you are to begin your journey to success. But, do you have adequate
self-knowledge? Do you understand how you think or why you respond and behave in a certain
way under particular circumstances? To reach your full potential you need to become more aware
of your own physical, technical, and mental strengths.

Try the following self-awareness exercises:

a. Write down your strengths and qualities as a person and as a singer, grouping them under physical, technical and mental. Do not give up too soon; you have many more positive qualities than you think. Once the lists are completed, keep reading them and saying them aloud,
“Yes, I am ..........................................” “Yes, I can .........................................”

b. Sit quietly and imagine yourself feeling wonderfully confident as a singer,
completely at ease with yourself and your surroundings. Watch how you stand, breathe, smile,
etc. Work with your positive image and say to yourself,
“Yes, I am ...............”
“Yes, I can................”
Repeat this exercise 8-10 times a day for at least a week so that your subconscious mind will have
fixed your positive image.

Through self-awareness you will gain more mastery and control over yourself and your thinking.
