Create Realistic Expectations for Selling Beats in 2019

What’s up producers. It’s SikWitit of imsosick.com here with Airbit and it’s that time of the year again. This gonna be good. You know, it’s that time of the year where everyone sets unrealistic expectations and over exaggerated promises about how well they’re gonna do this year and how great they’re gonna be. You know what I’m talking about.

Hey, new year, new me.
Yo, this gon be my year.
I’mma make like 12 beats a day, watch.
Hashtag, I’m leaving all negativity in 2018
I mean, I know I don’t have any placements but this year, I’mma get 22. Watch. Law of attraction.

Nice.

Happy New Year everyone. 2019 is finally here and for some, it got here quicker than expected and for others, it couldn’t have come any sooner. But none the less, we’re here and it’s time for New Year’s resolution.
We’ve all made ridiculous resolutions followed by pretty feeble attempts. I mean, I know I’m very guilty of this.

Out with the old, in with the new
Bruh, I got a gym membership, I’m about to work out every day yo like I’m about to lose fifty-eleven pounds bruh
I’mma try something new every day.
As of today, I’m vegan.

Now, what I am against, is all the unrealistic expectations that we put on ourselves. These expectations often lead to failure, self-doubt, defeat and develop poor mental capacity to actually achieve realistic goals that we should set for ourselves on a daily basis. I mean, come on. If you can’t hold up your end of the bargain with yourself, how does that translate when you’re dealing with other people? But, I will say this. I finally got tired of setting myself up for failure. As I’ve grown, I realised I’ve probably just been a little too aggressive with my approach.

I started analysing why I wasn’t completing my resolutions every year and then I realised. I’m overwhelming myself. So, what exactly are you trying to say?

Here’s what I mean. We’re the best when it comes to visualising our future, like who we want to become, where we want to go, all the possibilities. But where we fall short? Proper execution. So, here’s what I want you to do this year. I want you to challenge yourself to take on a totally different approach and retrain your thinking.

Instead of overloading your plate with possibilities, do this.

First, set yourself up for success.

So, how do I do that?

Sometimes setting smaller and easier goals or resolutions and accomplishing them over and over can set a standard of winning and it also helps motivate you to set bigger goals.

Nice

Second, pace yourself.

You mean go slow?

Yes, exactly. Understand, life, your career is all process, which means it’s continuous. It’s your life, it’s your race, it’s your journey. No one else’s. So, don’t feel the pressure of having to hurry up and do things just for the sake of doing them. We all grow and develop specific to who we are so don’t be afraid to just take your time. I mean, some things are gonna happen quick, some things may take a little while.

And last, quit trying to fit everything into 365 days. It’s impossible. Take your basic understanding of time and throw it out the window. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s good to set benchmarks and it’s good to have time frames to get things done. I’m all for that. But, don’t get caught up in defining your success on whether or not you finish something on time. The idea in an ever growing, moving, progressive existence is to just start.
Learn through your process.

So, I hope this resonates with you, not only as a producer but as a person. I too know what it feels like to feel like I’m failing at all of my attempts to be great. So, be encouraged and remember, small steps forward still get you to your destination.

I just wanna see us all win and thrive in our own individual purpose. So, with that said. Here’s to 2019, may it truly be your year. Blessings and Happy New Year.
