I fell off the wagon again. Trust me it's not just you. The important part is you get back up, dust yourself off, and keep at it!


All right. Welcome to the financially free musician podcast. My name is Brenden Lowe. Thanks so much for being here. 

So man, it’s been awhile. It’s been awhile and, uh, you know, I’m struggling. I’m really, really struggling. And I can’t find the structure, you know, with as many things as I tried, I honestly, I, I can’t find the structure for what I want to my offer to be. And it’s preventing me from moving forward. And if you’ve ever been a situation where like the littlest thing is preventing you from moving forward, like that it is a true thing. It is, it is a real thing. I mean, it’s like, literally it’s like a splinter. It’s like a splinter that is, you know, just annoying. Like you can’t let it go right until it’s out and you feel it there, it’s not completely messing with your day.

It’s not a deep one, which it’s a little one. Right? And you go throughout the day and you’re like, dang, I just need to get this out. And sometimes you can’t get it out, right. Stays there for a long time. And sometimes you never get it out. Sometimes the body absorbs it or who knows, but this is where I’m at. And again, my mission here is to show you that it takes persistence. It takes never giving up. And you know, I I’ve been doing this now with the podcast and I’ll, I’ll record a podcast two, three a month off. I fall off the wagon. I get back on, um, film and other podcasts. And, you know, with jazz piano school, my first business, it was never really liked this. And there’s different trials and tests that we go through, challenges that come up with everything that we do in life.

You know, if it’s not one thing it’s another, and you have to be mentally prepared to handle these things. And what I keep coming back to is resilience. Right? You have to have resiliency has to remember how you over came obstacles in the past. And that gives you four to two to, it gives you strength to keep going. It reminds you that you have been in situations like this before you have gotten through them. And on the other side is success is greatness is exactly what you’re looking for, right? So hopefully if anything, this podcast is showing you that it’s, it’ll never be easy. It’s never easy. And I heard a great thing said the other day in which I really want to capsulate and, and, uh, express myself is that I don’t, I don’t want to be one of these people on the internet or an educator or a teacher of business, uh, you know, promising easiness.

Like when you get my system, it’s gonna be easy. When you learn from me, it’s going to be easy. When you get this thing, it’s going to be easy, right? The shiny Pearl I’ll always tell you, it is not easy. It’s in fact quite the opposite, right? It’s going to be the hardest thing you’ve ever done. And this is exactly what I’m going through like this. This is, and this is harder. This is much, much harder for me than my first business. For some reason, things will click in some circumstances and, and they will not in others. Right. Um, what I thought was going to be easy. Like I thought I was just going to hit the ground running and I’m a structure guy. Like I’m an offers guy. I’m a, I’m an options guy. I’ve helped, you know, just so many people develop, offers, develop their structure of their business and in see that to the end where they’re, you know, um, they’ve, they’ve created a new income source and they’re making money from the new business.

They started, you know, they’ve quit their nine to five, quit their job. And they’re running full businesses. Right. And this is what I do. Like, this is my wheelhouse, but I literally, I can’t, I can’t figure this out right now. And I know I’m going to, I know I’ll find it eventually. And it’s about coming at it from different angles. Like I, I gotta get my whiteboard up in my office. I got to write these things down. I have to look at them. I have to stare it down. I have to take walks. I have to go to the gym and I have to think about it in the shower, everywhere you’re at. Right. Think about, think about the problem that you’re having and what is the solution. Because everything, every obstacle that’s put in front of you has a solution, right? It has a solution.

And it’s our job to simply find the solution. We have to be resourceful. We have to ask for help. We have to go on the internet. We have to talk to our spouse, talk to our friends, talk to our loved ones. Right? Get ideas, no matter if they’re bad or good, it doesn’t matter. Just listen to what they have to say. Cause we never know. You never know what’s going to spark that solution. That’s going to come to you and be like, yes, that’s it. That’s what I’ve been searching for right there. And then boom, when you have that, you gotta go. You gotta sprint. Honestly, you gotta start sprinting because you never know when you bottle that inspiration, that motivation, that idea. And you get it. Listen to me like sprint as fast as you possibly can because those things ebb and flow like the weather in a volatile area.

I live in California. So it’ll say it’s pretty consistent. But again, like clouds rolling in on the east coast, right? I’m originally from Boston. You never know you could have thunder showers for an hour. And then it’s sunny skies for the next hour. And then thunderstorms come back in. Who knows? Right. Once you get the idea, once you get the solution, you got to implement it as fast as possible. And just always, always remember that action creates reaction, action, creates reaction, do things, do things, write things down on a piece of paper. If you’re just thinking about it all the time, that’s only one avenue to the solution. You can’t always just think about it. You’re not always going to work it out in your brain. You got to literally put things down on paper. You have to do things on your computer. You have to record podcasts, put content out there, talk to people, right?

Put yourself into motion, create emotion, right? Motion creates emotion actually creates reaction. So remember these things, these are things that are going through my head constantly right now. Because again, I have, I don’t like to say it, you know, I’m not going to say it. I was going to use the S word, which is stuck, stuck. Don’t ever say that to yourself because it, it makes you more step. I have an obstacle right now and I’m trying to figure it out. I’ll try to figure out how to go around it and I will do it. I will figure out the solution. I don’t know when it’s going to be, but I’m going to keep trying at it. And I will find a structure for the coaching business that I want to help you with. Right. That works for me and you. And again, that’s the issue, right?

How is that? I’m looking for an optimal solution to creating a program that is going to deliver the best results for the people on helping and educating in business and is going to allow me to run both of my business businesses concurrently, right? Without feeling stressed, overwhelmed, um, not enough time in the day, right? I’m looking for the structure. That’s going to allow all these things to be possible. And I know what’s out there and how I’m going to find it. So again, don’t give up, be resilient, come at it from different angles. Definitely, definitely, definitely put yourself into action and you’ll find that problem. Excuse me, you’ll find that problem. We’re definitely gonna find problems. Trust me, you’ll find that solution. And when I, when I figured out the solution, don’t worry, I’m going to, uh, I’m going to say it on the podcast here. I’m going to keep going to podcasts either way until I figure it out. But for now, I had to share that with you guys. Hope you have a great day. Talk to you soon.
