Hi there.

I am 21 years old and thinking of becoming a singer one day.(but i study Engineering now which is sad). But I really fear the the things i might have to deal with if i did become successful (though i am not successful now).

I mean, I am shy, introverted type but have these huge dreams which I really want to achieve but it makes me discouraged to even pursue it because the voice inside my head keeps telling stuff like, "you can't do that", "its impossible" etc .

When I see a singer performing on stage, i usually imagine myself in their shoes but am absolutely terrified of what audience might think.

Please tell anything about how to deal with this.

(I know this post is not clear so if you don't understand please ask more about this post. I will do my best to answer them.)

It sounds to me like you need to practice visualization a little more. I am still in the process of figuring out how to visualize better myself so I'm no expert here but you need to BE the singer you desire to be as much as you can. That voice inside your head is just your ego repeating the habits that it is used to repeating.

Saying you are not successful now is part of your problem as well. Start saying things like "I am successful now, I am a great singer and I enjoy what I love doing, It feels so awesome to be up on this stage performing." Start picturing yourself in your own shoes on that stage with the entire crowd smiling with excitement and astonishment. Feel the feeling in your body and mind of what it would be like and hold onto it for as long as you can. Even if you can do this for a few minutes a day it is a starting point. You will get better and better at it as time goes on.

Every time you hear that negative inner voice, bounce off it and let it fork you in the other direction. Put that negative inner voice to your use and let it be a reminder of who you really want to be. Appreciate it for reminding you to go in the direction that you know you can go to. Feel the feelings that you want and see the pictures in you mind of want you expect to happen. You are the master of YOUR own mind so don't let those habitual images and voices control what you do with your life. Take control and become the singer that you know you are.

Good luck with your fabulous career. I'm looking forward to your first single! :)

Do you Love to sing?
Is it all you think about?
Or Is it the fantasy of being successful and people noticing you that is alluring? One can sing in small places build up your confidence.Sing for family sing for friends .Perform at small venues, for the elderly,children and others that would love to hear someone sing.
If you really want to sing take some small steps toward your dream. You can be an engineer and still sing.

I will explain the best way I can my friend. Fear will block you from achieving your goal, so if you fear it, it isn't meant to be, and when you loose your fear, there is better chance. If you are afraid of that, then it probably isn't something you will do.

The voices are your ego friend. If you have never heard Seth speaks, it is a 13 part video, but well worth it, Greatest channeled material I ever heard, and I am a channeler too lol,, so that means alot! have a listen. If you never heard it. take your socks off or they will be knocked off lol

love n light,
