In the past few years, there has been an increased interest in the underground electronic music scene. This is because of the current popularity of electronic music in the mainstream media. This blog will discuss why you should follow your passion and pursue a career in electronic music.
I have always believed that the best way to be successful in life is to follow your passion. If you are passionate about something then you will work harder at it than anything else. It is also very easy to get discouraged when things don’t go as planned but if you keep doing what you love then success will come eventually.
In my opinion, following your passion is one of the most important factors for being happy with what you do and having a successful career. If someone asks me how I got into this industry I tell them that it was because I loved what I did so much that I decided to make it happen no matter what happened around me or how hard times got!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I enjoy making music so much. While there are certainly times when the job can be stressful, and there’s always competition with your peers to contend with, the bottom line is that I’m extremely lucky to be able to make a living doing something that I love.
The electronic music scene is one of the most vibrant and wide open musical spaces in the world today. There are endless possibilities for what you can do with a computer and some speakers. The process of sitting down in front of my computer, fiddling around with different sounds, and seeing what sort of new thing I can create never gets old for me. It’s such an amazing feeling to go from having a blank slate to creating a full track in just a few hours. That sense of satisfaction from listening to your finished product never gets old. That’s why I do it!
I recently came across an article on the internet about working in creative fields and how it will change your life for the better. Here’s what it said: “Follow your passion; do what you love.” This is true for anyone who works in music, art, or any other creative field. If you’re not passionate about what you’re doing then you won’t be happy doing it
“Follow your passion” is easily the worst advice you could ever give or get.
If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, for example, you shouldn’t “follow your passion.” You should follow your effort. People who work hard and put in the time to master a craft are the ones who have ideas that change the world.
And if you’re not an entrepreneur, but instead someone looking to launch a career in any creative field—music, writing, art, entertainment, technology—then “follow your passion” is still terrible advice. Because even though you might be passionate about what you do, those around you will care very little about it until you’ve proven yourself.
This is why I think it’s better to develop a deep love for the process rather than for the outcome. The outcome—becoming famous or successful or reaching some arbitrary goal—is beyond your control. But controlling what you can control is the surest way of getting there.
Having a deep love of the process means that no matter what happens, if you were able to work on something that interests you today then it was a good day. In fact, I believe that if all else fails and every dream of yours falls apart at the seams, as long as you can still enjoy doing
If you’ve read the media coverage of startups, you’ll often see the advice “Follow your passion.” I’m not sure why this is such a controversial idea. Isn’t it obvious that you should follow your passion? I’ve never heard anyone say explicitly that you shouldn’t.
But in practice, many people don’t. A lot of kids go to college, get pre-med degrees, then go to medical school, even though they hate biology and chemistry. They do it because their parents want them to be doctors. Then they spend the next 40 years hating their jobs and wishing they had done what they loved instead.
I think that’s sad. The world would be a better place if people followed their passions. The problem is that for most people there’s an obvious counterargument: “I’d love to follow my passion, but I couldn’t make enough money.”
For most people it’s true: unless you’re very lucky, doing what you love will not pay the bills. But here’s the thing: in a few cases it does. And those are the cases worth paying attention to.
Recently, I was asked by a few people to share my story on how I got into the underground electronic music scene in Asia. Therefore, I spent some time thinking about it and decided to write this blog post to share some of my thoughts, experiences and learnings from the past five years.
Before I go into more details about the underground electronic music scene in Asia, I would like to share some of my thoughts and beliefs on following your passion and making a living out of it.
I am a strong believer that you should choose to follow your passion and do what you love in life. If you do what you love, you will be much better at it than if you do something that you don’t like. And by doing so, you will have a much higher chance to be successful at it.
However, there is no such thing as an easy path in life or anything that is free lunch. It takes effort and discipline to become successful at doing something you love. You need to stay motivated and keep working hard towards your goals while following your passion. If you work hard enough, one day success will come and all the effort will pay off.
The biggest reason why you should follow your passion is because it’s the most fulfilling thing you can do for yourself. Walking through life doing something that inspires you every day is so much better than settling for something that doesn’t. It’s not about being a millionaire or retiring early, it’s about waking up in the morning excited to get to work, and going to bed satisfied with what you accomplished.
I’m not saying that following your passion will make life easy. In fact, it’ll be one of the hardest things you’ve ever done. But think about how awesome it would be if you could wake up every morning and pick what you want to work on? And I’m not talking about just any project; I’m talking about a project that makes a difference in your life and the lives of others. That is powerful stuff.
So if there is anything I could get you to take away from this post it would be:
1. Following your passion will make you happier than anything else can
2. The best way to follow your passion is to start small
3. Don’t expect results right away, it might take years before things start paying off
4. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you not to follow your passion
If you’re really
But you have to be careful using the word “passion.” Because, as I’ve said, passion can come after you do the work. I didn’t just read Moby Dick in high school because I liked it. I read it because my father told me to. It wasn’t until a few years later that I decided I really loved it.
So the question is: how do you get started? How do you find out what you love? And how do you make sure it’s something you’re also any good at? Because one without the other won’t work.
The most dangerous thing is to jump off a bridge and hope that God will give you wings on the way down. And yet this is exactly what a lot of people are doing when they quit their jobs to pursue their passions. They assume that since they love something so much, they must be good at it too. They might even be right about that! But whether they’ll get paid for it is another matter entirely.
