Negative vs Positive self-talk.

Updated: Feb 24

Negative.

Am I good enough?

What if I mess up?

The lighting and camera isn’t good enough?

What am I trying to prove?

Why am I doing this again?

What if they think I’m rubbish?

What if I play wrong notes?

What if my voice cracks?

Am I really about to do this?

There are better musicians out there

I haven’t practised enough.

People will judge me! 

It’s not the right time.

I’m just not ready yet. 

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! 

Shut up and press the bloody button. 


Positive

I’m doing just fine. 

I’m enjoying the experience and I get to learn through it. 

I have practiced and I’m doing my best.

I smile and feel really good when I play music.

I forget the time when I make music.

I’m chasing my dream and It’s brave of me. 

I’m doing this because I love it.

It’s been my passion since I can remember. 

My closest friends are happy for me. 

I’ve got some positive feedback about my music.

I always look forward to it. 

It allows me to express myself. 

It’s exactly how I want to spend my time. 

I have a few people around me that love me and want me to do well. 

I am making a brave decision toward my future goals.
