Music dream came true
By Mark Tubée
from The Netherlands
I will keep it as short as possible, so it may take huge steps in time. But I write this to give faith and hope to others. It not only works for music, but for love, money, jobs, and everything else you wish for. Without me knowing it, I was using The Secret and The Power, in other words, LOVE, for everything I wished for.
As a child I was always crazy for music so I joined the drum band in my hometown.
No one ever believed in me, not even my parents, brother, and sisters. But I kept going no matter what and one day when I was doing the contest of FKM, the federal music competition, I became twice the Dutch champion on the drums.
Then one of my sisters got married to a professional drummer from a band, and as a little kid I used to say: "When I am old I am going to have my own band with everything in it and on it and own it. And I will have my own truck with the name of my band huge on the sides of that truck." Everybody laughed at me and told me I couldn’t do it, I wasn’t good enough, and how would some poor guy like me do and have that, etc. But I kept saying: "Watch me!"
Every time after school and later on after work I would sit in my bedroom and visualize me playing on stage at huge parties, festivals, weddings, etc. I had my headphones on and my favorite music playing, imagining It was me playing that music. I saw everything in my head, from music, stage, lightning, and lots of people enjoying their time.
Throughout the years everyone would make fun of me and laugh at me.
Long story short: Nine years later I had my own band, owned the whole equipment for it, and even had my own truck with the name huge on it. But that's not all. I even had my own video show behind my band, laser show, and intelligent lightning. We played every week, for several huge companies throughout the country. We even opened up one of the greatest Discotheque’s in Germany called ‘’Starfish’’ in Aachen.
All by visualizing me playing in my own band when I was a kid.
Before that I went on national TV with another band, seven times in a row!
Now I have quit my own band and gone for my even bigger wish and dream - being reunited with the love of my life and emigrating to Austria where she lives, start my own band again and make it happen there. Like they say, if I can make it here, I can make it anywhere. So I will keep you all posted on the rest of my dream life.
Don’t let negative thoughts bring you down, they are needed, just like yin and yang, sun and the moon, day and night. Don’t worry, everything will be even much more amazing than you can think of right now. Keep believing, and trust yourself - never listen to others who say it can’t be done. Those are the people who gave up on their dream.
But you can do it, or my name is not Mark Tubee!!!!
