But first you have to feel it inside your head, heart and soul.
Try listening to your favorite music with your eyes closed and no distractions. Take notice of way it effects you.
What do you feel? Is it joy? sadness? anger? frustration? love? pride?
The feeling will sweep over your whole body. Take notice of this feeling. Stop music and try and reproduce this feeling.
Once you can reproduce feeling grab your guitar and play.
Donít play a song you already know, just play some chords and see what happens. Donít think just feel and play. Visualize where you want to be - then start taking a small step in direction of your desire. Start with simple, easy to attain visualizations. No need to make them gigantic. Build confidence as you move along path.
And as your confidence grows, so will momentum.
Pretty soon you're literally steam-rolling over obstacles that once seemed huge.
