    Unhappy What should you do if you can't reach your goals/ dreams?

    I was trying to record my rap lyrics. But my voice gets tired really fast and I have horrible flow. Do people count the beats in their head? My timing is very off and it sounds very amateurish/unprofessional to be honest. For example I was using beats and the beat died and I had to find the beat and when I go to the chorus I have to flip the pages. Plus you can hear I'm flipping pages. I guess I can try and practice more. But I don't think any one would buy enough of my rap cds I mean I'd have to keep my job. It's really sad that I could spend so much time yet suck so bad. If I could flow maybe it wouldn't sound so bad. Basically my question is is there a way you can sound professional or is it you either have the skill or you don't?

    Check out Web Metronome .com - a free online metronome or any of the free metronome apps that have a visual aspect to the click track (Tunable is the app I use and recommend), every artist of any skill level can benefit from practicing with a metronome / click track, and you specifically sound like a visual aspect to that would help because it will keep you in time as you record your raps. I still want to hear one some day, PM me a link sometime

    Id just like to add that out of all the people I know who wanted to become rappers, only one became successful. He became successful when he stopped wanting to be a rapper and started a construction company.

    That's very interesting. I wondered why that would be.

    I think that yeah it is hard to be successful, I mean it's one thing if I think my music is great. It's totally different if other people did. I mean if I show people I know my music most people either say I can't understand what your saying, (its probably how I project my voice/ sound I want to talk clearer) it's ok, practice more, or they don't really say much because they don't want to hurt my feelings so bad because it could upset me.

    So I want a backup plan in case I can't make it as a successful career, I like programming just in case, I mean I don't want to invest all my time and people think I'm a wack rapper and I think I'm really good.

    Daitengu, but if you don't chase your dreams, what else would you do instead?

    Because most people that want to be rappers think they sound awesome, when in reality, they are terrible.

    Live in the now, don't live in the future or the past. Do what's best for you today. There are 1000 different steps in between where you are today and where your dream is. Each step is another fork in the road, and each fork could potentially take you a different direction. Don't stress over those decissions. Make the decisions that are best for you today.

    It's not the destination, it's the journey.

    Anonymous D, that could be true, I mean it would be nice to get paid to rap that way I would have more time to rap and I wouldn't have to work at my job, but even if I didn't well I can do it as a hobby

    DaiTengu, sometimes I'm like that worry about now, as the future could be far away, but I'm almost 30 so I'm getting older, when I first started on lws I was around 20. It depends really some days I feel like getting a lot done, other days I feel more like relaxing. I'm just worried you know one day, it'll be over and I'll realize all the stuff I want to do and it will be too late and that could have been prevented.
