"Do or do not. There is no try." -Yoda
There it is. Let the wisdom of the great Yoda wash over you as January of 2018 begins! At the end of the day (or year), we all know in our bones whether or not we have given it our best shot.
If your goal is to become an international pop star and you spent a total of 2 hours a week trying to get your name to new fans in 2017, you know you need to step up your game.
If you want to be a rockstar and spent 12 hours each week networking, emailing, touring, recording, and assembling the right team- you know you're on the right road.
It's over-used and it's 100% cliche, but listen: 2018 can be your year if you make it your year! No magical fairies are flying around, tapping chosen ones with a wand. YOU make that shit happen! Let 2018 be the year you reach the next step in your music/art/writing career. Make it a point to work harder than you ever have before, because you realize that to reach a steady roll, you must first create momentum.
The worst thing you can do is nothing. "There is no try." I love healthy competition, so I leave you with this: If you don't put in 100% this year, someone else will, and your potential fans will notice them instead of you. Go take the world you want, and be the person lapping everyone else! Here at Nashville Offbeat, we're rooting for you!
