In a previous life I used to be a music teacher and one of my favourite lessons was the four chord trick. Did you know that almost all ‘popular’ music is based on the same four chord sequence? Yup, honestly, you tell me you favourite song and one you can’t stand and the chances are it has the same structure at its heart. Don’t believe me? Go to YouTube and search ‘4 chords The Axis of Awesome’.... So what’s the point? Well I’m pretty new coach, I’m so new in fact that I’m still figuring out where I stand in the sea of coaches and what exactly my niche will be. There’s been so many times in the last 6 months that I’ve been overwhelmed and the comparison games has left me totally paralysed.... 💭 there’s too many of us..... 💭so many coaches do exactly what I do there can’t be a market left.... 💭I’ll never be as good as them so why bother .....and so on and so, you get the picture!
It was in one of these low moments that the four chord trick came into my mind. All of these incredible songs we wouldn’t have if the composers had given a f*ck that their song shared a few chords with one already written. Because it’s the details that make them different; the melody, the rhythm, the instrumentation...all totally unique.
If you’ve ever sat there and thought ‘I’d love to have my own business doing _____________(insert dream topic here!)’ but you’ve never been brave enough to take the leap then this ones for you. Creating your own business is exactly the same. You’re bound to share some similarities with a ton of others but it’s your differences than make you unique and the person who resonates with your ‘song’ won’t necessary like the melody of someone else’s.....there’s a place for all of us, keep singing babe 🎶 🎵😘😘
