I have a couple of passions in life, one of them is music. I love playing drums and really want to play in a band. I've moved to LA about 3 years ago and have been searching for a group to play with since then. I'm constantly making ads and networking and it feels like nothing has come of it. Every week I set goals for myself to try to reach out to more people, practice to get better at my craft, and to continue to pursue a dream. Lately, I find myself feeling defeated and losing motivation. It becomes increasingly frustrating as other musicians flake and I am unable to find dedicated people with the same passion. Sometimes weeks go by and I feel like I am going no where.
I'm sure others have experienced this with their own dream. How do you get past this feeling of being defeated and continue to motivate yourself?
