How to Stay Motivated when Training Your Voice

{Published in Business Times Newspaper 15-21 May 2015} Procrastination is inevitable, as it were, especially when you’re training on your own—without supervision by a tutor. Nothing is easier than losing interest in your training. Once you begin to skip training a couple of times, before you know it you’ve skipped so many vocal training sessions that the thought of getting back on track in itself sends you right back into procrastination, so much so that if you’re not persistent in your resolve to get back on track you’ll probably never go back at all. In this article, I will offer quick and simple tips on how to self-motivate into pursuing your goals without ever falling off the wagon again.

The secret to staying motivated is to consider what you’re doing as YOUR journey into discovering yourself AND your voice. With every exercise that you do, stay alert and tuned to your senses so that you can actually FEEL the progress you’re making. Believe me, every vocal training session—whether you’re doing it alone or with a teacher—gets you closer and closer to discovering more about your voice than in the previous session. This is how to stay motivated. It may sound a little simplistic, but when you begin to think of your training as a journey into yourself, you’ll never get bored. If anything, you’ll be looking forward to your sessions with every passing moment.

Another simple trick is to change your exercises and their durations more frequently. For example, you may choose to train for an hour one day and only for forty five or twenty minutes in subsequent sessions. It helps to keep your training more interesting. Variety is the spice of life, as they say. It works every time.  And if you find you don’t have an hour to spare, simply shorten your session—but do SOME training. So stay focused, and be blessed with a beautiful voice.
