How many of you make them?
Here's why you should, and a few tips to get motivated.
many of you make New Years Resolutions? Or are you the type to
say, "Well, what's the use, I never keep 'em anyway."?
Think about it for a minute, if we had that attitude about everything
in life, then why would we even get up in the morning? I mean,
why drive to work or go to school when you might have an accident
and get killed? You see how silly this is?
The word resolution is just a fancy word for "goal setting".
Webster lists several definitions but reoccurring words are "resolve",
"declare", and "decide".
Why not use the beginning of the year as a fresh start to achieve
the goals that you set for yourself on DRUMS? Write them down
in big bold letters and tape them to the wall if you have to.
This is a common habit of successful people and it WILL work if
"you" work hard for it and "MAKE IT HAPPEN".
Even if you don't meet all of your goals, just "TRYING"
gets you a lot closer than you would have gotten otherwise.
You don't need to have a list of 10 or 12 things if you don't
want. Sometimes just 1 or 2 goals are sufficient. Maybe you can
resolve to get that double stroke roll perfected once and for
all. Or maybe you can commit to taking a few private lessons to
get you out of that slump.
GET POSITIVE, GET MOTIVATED! Make a few resolutions
and get out there and KICK SOME BUTT!

TIPS FOR SELF-MOTIVATION
1. Read books with inspiring themes or messages.
2. Listen to inspiring music. Music that leaves
you feeling "pumped" and filled with positive
3. Listen to self-help/motivational tapes. If you
haven't tried 'em, you're missing out!
4. Watch movies like "Shawshank Redemption" that
portray the epitome of human perseverance.
5. Go to drum clinics and/or watch drum videos of
your favorite players.
6. Study the patterns of successful people and
hang out with them any chance you get. They "will"
rub off on you!
