How to properly make use of your mind

The first title of today’s topic was why you should have a bigger cause in life, but that’s might not get the point right. Mind is the only driving factor in your life and if you can pay attention to it, you can manipulate it to your own ways, rather than allowing emotions dictates your decisions. Now without waste of time I will explain in point form ,but before I start make sure you follow this blog so you won’t miss any information that’s might impact you positively.

Learn to connect the dots with your mind by looking and listening

I have discover a skill of making sense of many things from watching a TV series ,or reading a book and so on ,and I can only do this with my mind . Maybe you have done this before without knowing its valuable human skill so I will make you an example.

If you watch a Tyler Perry movie and a woman have an affair and break a heart of a honest husband, and later on the story shows the wife being sexually abused by her father. But Tyler doesn’t explain that’s the wife has more sexually eagerness than his husband and doesn’t show much the affect of working long hours and don’t give your partner enough attention and lastly for a wife to not open up to his husband in every aspect of their relationship then as I’m watching I get all those lessons .

If you don’t pay attention and can’t connect the dots, you will miss the point of a important lesson in your life.

Listen, Look and try to remember things when you are in a situation. Personally I have made missteps in life and still do even today .But fighting with my mind and trying to do the right thing all the time is not easy but to be a great and a good person you need to overcome the bad thoughts.

See as males some of us find ourselves in rock bottom and in that’s state we can make the most terrible things if we don’t learn to be mindful of our minds for example seeing a little girl and think you can take advantage of her, the uncles at home who has hard life and smoke and all this stuff, they need purpose in life and need help because once they become stuck they are potential problems in a society.

The aunts that’s you can find being soliloquy have a negative potential of destroying peoples marriages they are not crazy but the society is sidelining them and they are lost in their minds as well no one seems to care but if we can as a community try to revive one another spirits and constantly motivate one another we can solve the cases we hear on TV and radio.

Teach your mind that’s working is part of life

Never for a minute think life is worth it without working, even bosses work and much harder than their employees. So if you are a fan of or blog know we are working every time we release a new piece.

The only correction we can make in the concept of working, working is not only hard labor ,but most important side of working is working through using your mind ,it can be calculation ,strategizing ,write ,read and publish ,plan and hold effective meetings , negotiate  and so on that’s really work and from all this you can see this is all mind work.

But picking heavy stuff and doing hard repetitive work is also fine but don’t be stuck in that’s while working, in order for you to not be complacent you should work towards something big or what you are passionate about.You cannot escape working, because having a dull day is also work and personally I happen to have those days because I can push so much as well, then sit back and reflect. The decisions you make are part of work and not taking decision is work you don’t want to do.

Feed your mind

This is no brainer if you’ve been here before , you know we are advocate of learning and reading books , I found myself loving to learn more than average person and its has became a habit to me. Then one day I watched a video on my favorite channel on YouTube called success TV, they said if you are passionate about learning you will never succeed, because you are learning for entertainment rather than learn to apply things in your life or business.

Chances are I don’t even have a business and now I have became a motivational speaker because of my learning without any track of success. The point is learn to grow and apply lesson’s in your life try to be a different person every year, personally I have learnt and unlearnt things that’s were not working for me. So it’s also important to pick and choose don’t live your life by the book make your own choices from authors two sense.

Meditation

I won’t talk much on this subject, I find it hard for now but I have used it and found myself having a nice sleep. Meditating is a way to look at your thoughts from another person’s sand point and don’t act into them while trying to quiet them with mantra technique ,which is repeating one or two words over and over e.g. I AM or Your name act until you get to a peaceful state. Get the advice of Buda on this subject and other’s this is basic for me.

This also means controlling your emotions meaning controlling your thoughts, think before you answer and at least take 48hr before acting on your anger.

Control your consumption and your surrounding

At home they know I don’t watch TV and it’s something I committed myself to doing after hearing that’s successful people don’t have time for it. Now the content I watch that’s a TV program is really a recommendation that’s has education in it other than that’s I’m not interested.

My mom has a tendency to call me when I pass by when there is a crappie thing on TV and she knows I cannot stand that’s and after this realization , I started to understand my own subconscious mind ,if something is not going well in my  business I don’t sleep well . If I have a serious fight with a family member it’s hard for me to sleep well, don’t to mention love relationship really mess with me.

So I have develop to deal with situations and not get into deep to soon and started to watch something else before I sleep so my subconscious mind will record that’s unimportant thing than I can sleep well.

Listening to Mr. Robert Green talking about human nature ,he talks about being truthful about yourself and also realize that’s everyone in life is an actor and as a person you should be the best actor for your role. Have a self control and so on, and realize that the life game is social and people are important part of puzzle so get along with people.

I have lost couple of gf’s because I was too transparent and too honest and girls don’t like that’s and that my own view. Now I will be working on my old approach of being a regular guy, because if I get serious too soon they can’t handle it. In closing be aware of the type of person you are and give the respect people deserve that’s you will like given to you.

Well if I was in a conference and you were listening and taking notes, I would’ve stopped you from taking notes because I feel people they practice what they usually practices in lecture classes and worse they won’t revise this ones.

I would suggest listen to my talk then when you get to the office or home write down what’s you remember and that’s what’s you will use in your life ,the lesson you resonated with.

6 Reason why artists don’t make money

Welcome to another episode of LnM Show, this segment we going to focus on the driven force of our society money, but strictly to music artists why don’t get it….We were guilty of this as well at the beginning and sometimes we get tempted to ease up but have found a way to discipline ourselves to treat music as strictly business. Disclaimer not all artists are not making money and some of us we are not making what we suppose to so take our points with consideration. The aim of this show is to open your eyes as an aspiring artist and make you realize that there is nothing you will ever enjoy more than your passion so you might as well get paid for it.

  1. We are hooked by burning passion.

Before  we explain take a second and Press a follow button , thank you .1stly its easy for us to talk about ins and out of music because we in it so we literary talking from experience as you will see our music videos if you look at our channel. Now lets us Elaborate what’s we mean passion hooked us. We love what’s we do to the point that for as long as we performed money will follow one day ,which is the day that will never come so we suggest you add value to your brand and start acting like an artist not a want to be or a student of music. Ask for your money to promoters and other artists who want to feature you because you have done so and so to make yourself worth so much politely take it or leave it. For years we preformed for free and as that is needed at the beginning its shouldn’t exceed 5 years or even less unless it a hobby and you already have money , we realized we were paying for everything we did either with our time or with money so we needed it back with interest. ULwaz sometimes forget and try to be nice on people then Makhula remind us of our vision and that we will not get there if we keep wasting petrol and money to attend shows that make other people rich disregarding the person who’s actually doing the work.

  • 2 We are not business savvy.

I think we are still guilty of this point which is our weakness but if you are a business person don’t try to take advantage loll. What’s we mean is we don’t know business ,we are winging it as we were winging it from the beginning but what’s important for you is to be aware of your weaknesses and get help don’t sign endorsement deals on your own. Don’t perform at a big concert where you have to sign and sign that like you signing a autograph. I learn from Zakes Bantwini sharing his story that he once preformed on the same stage with Usher, in the documents they signed Usher has requested some matt that he will use and our Zakes saw the stage being ripped apart before he got in quickly as the light went off for Ushers exit, he tried complaining it was too late he didn’t request the matt and he signed the contract. We all know he learnt and improve now we don’t have to repeat that same mistake. All I know about being business savvy is knowing the basic of numbers, in music it’s important to know how to calculate % I know at Samro we rob each other but we hardly get don’t royalties anyway because it’s hard to put music on radio so we really don’t know how a percentage work as for us we are now aware about that too. 2% of R2 000 000  = R40 000 not bad neh loll we don’t know who will be getting the rest and why so how I got R40 000 it’s an old formula we forgot after school pay attention its goes like this. R2 000 000 x 2 / 100 = R40 000 .this is the basic and most important.

  • 3 They don’t attract money.

Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will. We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.

Mr Nelson Mandela

Others say its takes money to make money, that one way to do it. Secondly for a artist to make money there’s a way to attract it. 1stly you should look deserving of money as an artist by spending money on your appearance or at least pictures you send out should be clean and you clean in it. Act like a Celebrity but don’t live like it on your day to day you will be broke. Buy clothes for your performance and do photo shoot, do hair and if you like bling add it, it doesn’t have to be too much, so when a person looks at you will automatically know this guy will want money. Then here is the secret if someone wants to book you let him say the offer 1st so you will be able to negotiate maybe he values you more than you value yourself or just read a book called negotiating without splitting a difference.

  • 4 We don’t know the roads to money.

Okay this is more like an example but it basically knows which streams to invest in that will make you make more money in return no matter how small you have putted in. Where you spend your time as an artist is also important because that will make you valuable what’s do we mean , let’s say you are Dj Tira its wouldn’t make a business sense to always eat your meat at Eyadini Lounge which by the time you are booked there people have had enough of you. Do go there once in a while as a social call but for you Shisanyamas are your place of business that your road that bring you moola if you know what I mean is. Do a mind calculation if you have some cash to invest in music to which will yield a better ROI- Return On Investment, do I bet on radio or tv then you have to decide looking at if your genre is played more on TV or radio, do I put this on clothes that is branded or I boost my page on face book then you look if you have fans who will buy your t-shirts and then earn some profit and go hard in boosting your videos on youtube.

  • 5 You Make money you just do know how to keep it.

Not being able to keep money somehow or at least create a cash flow with it is more like a handicap because you will always blow through your money every time you get it and wonder why you end up in content like this. Personally I know people who do make money through music then drink it through alcohol and drugs that not a problem but the question remains who is going to keep investing on maintain your music life cause you have to be relevant to keep getting more gigs and you have to have a hot song that is well marketed to the public to get a shot of competing .Even though we don’t like the word compete but somehow we still use the same mediums to send music to the public and the person at the top of the chart is doing all of the positives above. Expensive clothes has nothing to do with your brand as an artist so you better start printing your own and make money while you at it.

Well that it for today we know you got insights, that why we would appreciate it if you share this video on your twitter and face book and what app groups and be our ambassador by doing that and we will keep giving everything we know that could help, subscribe on our channel for this kinds of Videos and music Videos, Press Notification Bells too… LnM Show simply means ULwaz No Makhula Show we out with our Bonus point habe…

Our No 1 Hit

  • 6 Their Team is working against them.

Managers, Producers, Camera guy, Driver and Fellow studio mates and those guys who like to hang out in the studio. This people are important but and big but they might be the ones who are holding you back ,you see the way money is splitted after the gig or that celebration for the launch or those chicks that were called by your hang out friend and you ended up taking one with you and the next morning you went to Shisanyamas you guys seems like you are living a dream already if that not a music video where you just fronting then your team isn’t handling your career well and the manager isn’t doing the management work. In most cases it’s been said that take full control of your life but in this point I say check your surrounding the people who came to your life for another intension now their totally doing something else.

Than lets end this with you , you are the centre of everything as much as we are a group with Makhula I have my perspective he has his own then we collaborate and considerate for one another do you do that with your team ,there should be some compromise in place sacrificing parties you not a celeb yet so calm down and be seen at home rather than your mother or grandma complain about music while it’s you , be reliable at home and get blessings when you went out to gigs cause you come back home sourber.

  • Artists don’t talk about it.

Artists don’t talk about money, while they wake up everyday use it and work for it in 9-5 .Here is the lesson talk about things you want to end up having them… because the fact that’s you not talking about it , also means you don’t thing about it and thus you cannot make it in music or anywhere for that’s matter. Talk, Think, Ask and be money to have it . I have a hard time sometimes dealing with other rappers telling me as Dj Swing that’s they don’t have money or its hard to get money or I’m young and I’m still in school… I want to be clear here if you want our services you need to first think how you going to pay us before even talking to us. We also value paying forward because its where our success comes from as ULwaz No Makhula we don’t plan and not talk about how we going to pay for our dreams to become a reality or otherwise that’s will be stupid of us ,and really time wasting thing to do. So please take your work seriously and sorry if I was a bit hush here but I hate the fact that’s its took me so long to realize why people are broke in every place in South Africa is because they don’t worry about the most important in the world money . Even those who looks rich and have things , they don’t have money in the bank and their being charged overdraft fee for being lazy to pay attention to their money , And I’m not perfect either as a artist and a friend I kept studying money and made a mistake of not doing what’s really is a habit of making

5 THINGS TO DO AFTER THE SONG IS RECORDED AND READY FOR DISTRIBUTION

Welcome to the 2nd article of ULwaz no Makhula Show where we teach artists like us what do we have applied to make our songs stand out on social media which led to having them popular around the world.

[Durban Inanda, March 31, 2020 Tuesday] —

  1. Make sure you and your friend, producer or group member feels the same way about the song.
    What’s do we mean by this point? If one of you feels there is a problem with a song and don’t say he won’t believe in a song and won’t be able to push it like you do. And your probably feel that as well and you will both loose getting poor feedback. Key push the song until person who loves other genre wants to hear it out.
    Adding on the 1st point even if the song is already out you can fix what ever you pick up. When we attended Music Imbizo we had a Luck of meeting a music engineer who tested our song on the studio monitor/ speakers that’s he was promoting to sell small one but powerful. He wasn’t even a fan of qgom but he heard that’s our song was more on Hi’s Frequency meaning there was no bass. On that’s point we mastered the song on 2 different engineers and we go back home and we realized we choose the wrong song with missing bass. Which helped us by the time we were doing Music Video we had a right song. So Key to this point you don’t know who may spot the problem of a song take that’s critique constructively.

You not as good as you think or anyone tells you and you not as bad you are in between.

Our Label
  1. Put Your Song in Free downloadable Platform as well as STREAMING Digital Platform.
    Firstly you want to be omnipresent on internet; we didn’t know this until we read a book by grant cordon 10X rule. It’s simply means multiply yourself and be available everywhere especially to people who do what’s you do and those who loves it and buy it. Hats way you won’t be obscure people will know about you, follow you and possibly book you so you have to put your song everywhere. our favorites , SlikouronLife , Datafilehost , Audiomack , Youtube(Audio) ,Reverbnation ,and websites related to the genre you are doing , for instance submit to Fakaza most qgom is there , if it’s hip hop submit to websites like move hip-hop or hype and Dot com to all of those. digitally we have used song cast so far , but we planning to change to distrokit its recommended those are distributers to your online stores , Amazon , iTunes , play store ect they charge a bit but not so much .

3. Sacrifice as an individual for the team but into a certain extent.
In Life, business and Music sacrificing plays a huge role but others can take advantage of your good heart so be captious. If there’s harmony in friendship and you all have similar principles others will thank you for your effort which will be a good recognition to what’s you do even if you don’t have to. Either you putted some money to boost a page or make an artwork its doesn’t matter ,if you feel things needs to move a bit faster than you might’s encourage others by your good deed while hitting your own target. But don’t make it like you competing.

Khonintengbambile artwork
  1. Post links daily, answer people.
    As you engage on social media , don’t ignore inboxes obviously others are going to see since all you are admins so if you guys/ girls respects each other you won’t say something that’s will diminishes the image of a group. Even if you are a solo artist, respect people think before you talk. Post links on places that’s doesn’t feel like spamming meaning. you only tag people once the day you release the song with a link and a beautiful artwork after that’s they will see it on your wall/ tweet or feed…coz if you tag every time they won’t know even if you say something important or you release again coz you always tag.

We dont look at for opportunities we create them.

behind the scenes of angsaboni music video
  1. Check if combining our moves from the 1st article to this one if there’s no difference (Google Your group name).
    So algorithms and way to attract traffic to your music and videos may change but websites that’s push music doesn’t maybe better ones manifest but they all have a common goals put fresh talent on their platform . Meaning your song will be scooped and nice article about you guys will be wrote. even though there are things we do that’s is our DNA like I’m Swing he is Makhula and our strategy of pushing is not the same but it’s all leads to the same place fans and people who loves music. I don’t know if it’s too early to say this but there is a little information that in the future will require us to be with you face to face and help you apply it. We can tell you but it will be effective over the video. things like don’t hold meetings as friends everything you talk should be ispan or music business cause you have other friends that’s you talk other stuff with…so automatically where my friend hit me up I know we on to something, we can ask how is family but it’s very rare cause we get time to hang out but not every time.
