Discover The Perfect Place To Perform
Once you know what your Unique Selling Proposition is as a musician (we covered this in the last issue), it's time to ask yourself what kind of venue you want to be letting those talents out in. This is the process that will help you determine your "Perfect Performance Venue" so that you don't waste your energy and efforts searching for performances in the wrong area!
Take some time to do this visualisation. It will only take a few minutes, but you can go on for as long as you want. Think about your performance, and imagine yourself performing somewhere. Now step back from that performance but remain in the venue. Look around, and absorb the setting, the area, the smell, the sounds, the size, the facilities. Is that the type of venue you want to be performing in?
Remember that a venue is very important. You may be so desperate to perform so you could just play anywhere, but what about performing when you'd really enjoy it?
Get a piece of paper and scribble down exactly how you want the venue to be, and what sort of venue you want. Then, from today, make a point to keep that list with you and read it over at several points in a day. Keep it safe with you, and keep it in the back of your mind when you're doing something. Although you're not focussing on it fully, it's still there. Keep it there.
If you do this, you'll begin to see all kinds of beautiful and superb venues in areas that you are in every day, but you just don't open your eyes to it. You'll immediately be attracted to it and may even work on getting yourself a gig there.
Remember, the Universal Law Of Attraction brings to you whatever you desire as long as you really get clear and decrease your resistance!
