I’m not one for promoting or creating inflated egos here, but the idea I’m going to share in this article is a very compelling (and healthy) argument as to why you should fall in love with your own voice.
Performing music well is all about passion. Without passion, music would be dull, robotic, and boring. This is true in anything really… relationships, jobs, hobbies.
The more passion you have for something, the more you feed it. The more you feed it, the more it grows. The more it grows, the more you find even more passion for that thing.
Singing is no different. If you love singing… if you love your voice… if you love sharing your voice with others, you’re going to feed that passion by learning and doing more with your voice. The more you do that, the more your talent will grow, the better you’ll be able to powerfully convey what you’re singing about to your listeners. Their reactions will only ignite more passion within you for music and singing. It’s a vicious cycle.
The opposite also holds true. The more you focus on what you don’t like, the more you get in your head about it, the more you close off and shut yourself down. This, once again, is true in anything in life. Many people have experienced this with math, sports, or something else they thought they were just no go at, so they quit.
That’s why I say you must fall in love with your voice. Fall in love with your voice and enjoy it. The more you do, the more you’ll feed it, and the more it’ll grow.
Just writing this article makes me want to go pick up the guitar and do a little singing. Actually, I think I’ve gotten my point across, so I believe I’ll do just that.
