15 Signs That Indicate You Have The Soul Of A Singer

15 Signs That Indicate You Have The Soul Of A Singer

Music is the food for the soul.

Everyone listens to music. Many can sing or play an instrument too. But not everyone has the soul of a singer.

You do not have to be a singer or a musician to have the soul of a singer. You could be anyone from any part of the world, of any age or profession. Let me tell you, life will be a little kinder towards you if you do have it.

Do you have the soul of a singer?

You know you have the soul of a singer if:

  1. You love to sing to yourself, regardless of who is around or who is listening. You often feel the urge to hum, and it is a bit frustrating if you cannot.
  2. You love the sound of your own voice more than others do.
  3. You love to play instruments or at least have tried to learn an instrument at some point in your life.
  4. If you can play it, you love the way you can make an instrument sound.
  5. If you have thought of gifting someone a song (no, not an album – a song). It means you sing a song for that person and will not sing it for anyone else.

You have the soul of a singer if you think that is one of the most thoughtful gifts someone can give.

    1. You love the feel of another person singing or playing an instrument. You tend to judge a person by the way he or she sings, and you often get attracted to such people who can sing or play with spontaneity. You love to watch a person who is singing with all his or her heart – whether on stage or in the subway.
    2. If music can take you to a different world and make you forget your worries. If you can get engrossed and hypnotised by music.
    3. If listening to music is more than a pastime for you.

    If you try to do a math lesson while listening to music you get distracted. You tried putting on a good music and working on a project but you just cannot concentrate when a great music is playing. On the other hand, if you go jogging with music, you lose track of time.

    9. You have the soul of a singer if you spend some of your time everyday consciously thinking about music.

    It could be thoughts of a certain song or a composition or a particular piece you have heard, but it occupies a part of your conscious thought.

    10. If many of your memories are associated with music, such as:

    A song or a tune reminds you of a memorable time with your first best friend, or a certain moment when you fell in love, or your mother singing to you as a child, or perhaps a special day in the Church Choir.

      11. If music is a form of expression for you. Such as it can help you pour out your emotions in some way – by singing, playing or listening.

      12. If a tune has ever been so pleasant that it brought tears to your eyes. You did not understand why it felt sad and beautiful at the same time.

      13. If you love collecting music of your choice from friends and family. If you are excited about listening to the latest songs.

      14. If you have many friends who share an interest in music and you can actually talk about it. If that conversation gives you immense satisfaction.

      15. If people tell you that when you sing or play you forget the rest of the world, and you feel proud to hear that.

      What if I have the soul of a singer?

      If you do, life will go a bit easy on you. Why?

      People who have the soul of a singer may not be able to sing very well, but they are simply in love with the concept of music.

      Music, by profession, just like any other, can have good and bad sides. But your emotional attachment with music, that soul of a singer which you have, comes from a very pure place, a place not tainted by selfish desires and demands. Just like meditation, it has far higher benefits than cognitive studies indicate.

      If you possess the soul of a singer, you will be spontaneously attracted to similar people. You will find that you can trust a singer quite easily and form opinions about people when they sing their heart out. You will also be happier in life because that is one thing which will never leave you. You will always have that as a third space.

      soul of a singer

        My guitar lies way in a corner but many-a-times it has saved me from serious depression. To me it is a friend who never asks for anything, is only there to help, should I want it or need it. Besides it is also one who has given me few of the best moments in life, moments I can live with forever, memories which will be my most cherished ones in life. That is the benefit of having the soul of a singer!!

        You will also be extremely attractive to people around you who also share your soul. Such people will always give you immense happiness because you will interact on a platform which is untainted by selfish interests. If you are really passionate, can also be attractive to other people as a divergent, a person who thinks differently from the masses.

        A soul of a singer lives on in people’s memories and reminds them of happy times.

        How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

        How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

        Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

        You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

        Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

        1. Work on the small tasks.

        When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

        Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

        2. Take a break from your work desk.

        Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

        Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

        3. Upgrade yourself

        Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

        The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

        4. Talk to a friend.

        Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

        Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

        5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

        If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

        Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

        Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

        6. Paint a vision to work towards.

        If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

        Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

        Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

        7. Read a book (or blog).

        The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

        Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

        Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

        8. Have a quick nap.

        If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

        9. Remember why you are doing this.

        Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

        What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

        10. Find some competition.

        Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

        Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

        11. Go exercise.

        Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

        Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

        As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

        Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

        12. Take a good break.

        Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

        Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

        Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
