Musicians have a lot to juggle with. Not only do they have to crank out chart-topping hits, they also have to balance their private life with a rock star, public-eye lifestyle. This can be a daunting feat that usually requires the help of a professional, like a life coach.
Have you ever asked yourself who mentally prepares artists like Lady Gaga before they give a televised performance in front of millions of people around the world? Or how about women in music like Britney Spears, who suffered a meltdown in 2007 and needed all the help she could get.
Spears took a serious downturn in 2007 after she publicly broke down, shaving her head and causing her father to become her conservator. Since that time she has steadily been working with a life coach (whom she calls a “swagger coach”) and has begun to thrive.
Now she is singing and dancing again in her own Las Vegas show, and living happily as a single person rather than bouncing from relationship to relationship. She is also recording new music again.
Just like you receive vocal training, or go to guitar practice with a teacher to improve on your chops, you also have to nourish your inner being with the help of a professional. There are several resources like the well-known Tony Robbins (who coached Oprah, among many others).
Whenever you’re hit with stress, depression or a bout of anxiety due to the rigorous lifestyle of a musician, know that there is help out there. Life coaches are the secret behind many musicians’ success, and they can be part of your success, too!
