The Best Things We Can Learn From Rock Music

The Best Things We Can Learn From Rock Music

Rock music can teach us so much. It helps us forget the past, and forget about the future. There’s so much to learn from rock music. It helps us live in the moment in a way that is utterly magnificent and beautiful. Just like the Forth of July, when listening to rock music, you become a sort of crackling kind of firework. You blow everyone to pieces.

1. You Are Apt To Be Yourself – Who You Really Are

Rock music teaches you so much, especially about being just nothing but yourself. Why should you be or act like someone you are truly not? Rock music enables you to let go and have the time of your life. It is an escape… a righteous one, I must add!

2. You Scream At The Top Of Your Lungs

Screaming at the top of your lungs can be a good thing. It helps you release all the toxins inside of you. It creates an uplifting sort of pleasurable feeling whilst listening to rock music. I must say, there is no other feeling that compares to this one. Go to a rock concert and see the magic unfold. You will never regret it. I promise. The only thing that might happen is you might have a little too much fun. What is so bad about that? Absolutely and positively nothing. So, rock on folks! Don’t let anything stop you from having the time of your lives. To tell you the truth, it is also a magical sort of outlet. However, for this one, you must experience and not simply talk about it. So, go out there and have fun. It truly is magical, and utterly amazing!

3. It Is A Sort Of Creative Process

Rock music is a creative process. Why and how do these rock musicians come up with such awe-inspiring lyrics that touch the strings of our deepest hearts? Something like this is termed creativity in every way. I sure don’t have talent like that, but if I did, I would truly be blessed.

4. You Have The Ability To Enjoy the Present Moment

The fast paced music will get you off your butt, and enjoy the music. You will be forced to start living in the moment… and embrace whatever it is that is around you. Like Katy Perry states in her song Firework, “You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine… Come on show what your worth… as you shoot across the sky.”

5. You Can Express Who You Are

Rock lyrics are simply amazing and heartfelt. They help you express yourself in a way that no other kind of music does.

6. You Release All Your Negativity Through The Rock Music

Rock music may be loud and enraging, but it is about letting go and living your life without any conditions or restrictions, which in my view is utterly magnetic and beautiful. Why live a life in a cell? There is nothing wrong with loud and blasting music, especially if its underlying reason is to help you become more like your true self. I feel it is a wonderful thing.

7. You Engage Yourself

You engage yourself when rocking to the music. It is beautiful and utterly splendid. I think that is really nice for being yourself and engaging yourself.

8. You Wash Away All Doubts And Stupid Fears

Doubts and fears hold us back. Fear is a boundary that does not let anything pass through, kind of like a solid membrane. However, rock music has the ability to wash away these inferiority complexes in a way to help you lead a more rewarding life.

9. You Are A Firework

Like Katy Perry’s song “Firework,” rock music is the foundation to help you become the firework, igniting and lighting in the sky to brighten your surroundings. So, don’t be afraid. Be that firework so you can be happy for the rest of your life.

10. You Leave Everyone Speechless

Since you are so shy you hold yourself back sometimes. However, when you listen to rock music, you will be able to get back up on your feet, without feeling ashamed or shy for that matter. Just try it and see for yourself. You will only benefit from it. There is nothing to lose.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
