Non-Singing Superpowers for Singers (YouTube)
Being Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable
Today's Non-Singing Superpower for Singers is your ability to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I admit it, this is a tough one for me, too. But sometimes the ability to sing with ease can only be found on the other side of an uncomfortable moment.
Accepting Compliments Builds Your Confidence
Today's non-Singing Superpower is HOW Accepting a compliment can build your confidence. Let the compliment land. Let the confidence surge through you. Resist the need to DEFLECT the compliment or TOSS it back at them. Energy is Energy. If your wall is up, and you won't accept a compliment, how are the bigger things going to get through? The GIGS? The ROLES? The COOKIES you hope someone will bring to rehearsal? Accept the compliment. Feel the confidence. You can pay it back LATER.
It's Nothing Personal
Gang, don't take it personally if you DON'T get the gig - AND - don't take it personally, if you do. Today's non-singing superpower is to how to LET IT GO. To steer toward singing success, remember these two sentences: You GET the gig, it's great, accept it, take the next best step. You DON'T get the gig, it sucks, accept it, take the next best step. Enjoy the process. Don't take it personally and LET IT GO. Now THAT'S a superpower I wish I HAD known about. And, it's free!
Love your UNIQUE voice
Today's Non-Singing Superpower is learning how to LOVE your unique voice. Now, we all know that no two voices are exactly alike. That's what makes singing so great. Simply being YOU guarantees that you stand out from the crowd. Your unique sound, the kind of MAGICAL quality you just can't put a label on is a SUPERPOWER. Love it. Share it. You're worth it.
