The Comeback

18 Aug


Why many artists don’t do a comeback. 

In writing this title I wanted to be very clear in my direct meaning of what I am going to explain. Many fans clamor in anticipation to hear their favorite artists redo or review their favorite songs, often times they’re not prepared for what goes on behind closed doors. It takes a lot of preparation and stamina to go back on stage. Combined the pressures of reality along with the artist’s own insecurities, most of them decline to participate in a comeback. While a few artists do well, some of them may receive more accolades than before. Many feel rusty in whatever category and the negativity may often manifest into shock and talk amongst fans.

This can also be the same aspect when it comes to dating. After being on hiatus how can one successfully come back in a winning way? It takes work of a productive strategy that can allow room for growth and development.

Take Jane for example. Jane was in an abusive relationship that ended over four years ago. During the break, she worked on herself by healing and decided it was time to jump back in the dating pool. Jane approached the dating aspect in a positive way and begin meeting people. She met one guy that over time took a serious liking to. This guy also like Jane however, he was not thoroughly clear on what he wanted in a relationship which caused some confusion on her part.  He strung her along and stop returning her calls. No more dates. Jane feeling perplexed about the whole thing thought that maybe she didn’t have all the right traits for dating and decided to retreat back into herself.  She did not seek or participate in any sociable activities that involved the opposite sex,  it felt awkward for her to do so.

Jane was like the artist who struggled for a failed comeback attempt. They both became complacent with the past belief that nothing gets better even if you try hard enough to make it possible.

What made them different from the successful artist that did do well was having the resilience and ability to adaptation. You can’t have one component without the other. Jane met a string of guys which gave validation to her fears that dating is a waste of time. But she let that defined her story and settle out of the game. Jane could have been better prepared for her heart and time by being upfront and asking them what they wanted in the first place. Had they said something that didn’t resonate with her then it was in Jane’s power to create something different. By saying thanks but no thanks to them, the strategy of success would have been what she wanted to see. Or like the artist that decided to get help by utilizing a coordinator and vocal coach. Their grand debut would have been more of a celebrated win.

When we make preparations for planning, make sure the goals matches the actions. Sometimes you can be on the path following the plan accordingly and may still be misdirected or having to forego what was initiated. That’s ok, don’t run instead retreat briefly and make a new plan.

Chances are the more you work through the problem, the solution appears and eventually it will all work out for your greater good. Don’t hide away steal the spotlight and embrace the change!
