The Music–Success Connection: How music makes you happier, more productive, and more successful

Lynn O'Dowd GoGaGa News

“Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.”—Pharrell Williams.

What has music done for you lately?

If you’re like many of us, you enjoy a good foot-tapping tune no matter the genre of music, and it puts you in a better mood.

But why is that?

The scientific reason is that music releases the dopamine chemical in your brain, which improves your mood and creates pleasure and joy. Music can actually help you to experience more positive emotional experiences in your life.

For 35 years, I walked away from singing, playing my guitar or even listening to music on the radio. Instead, I listened to news radio—and we know how uplifting most news stories are! I had decided that performing and music couldn’t get me ahead in life or make me more successful. I thought I was being practical. How wrong I was.

Research shows that happiness leads to success, and not the other way around.

I can vouch for that. Since I picked up my guitar and started singing again (and subscribed to Spotify to download my favorite tunes), my life has taken a quantum leap in the positive direction. Like I say in my keynote,

“When you follow your BLISS, doors will open that you didn’t even know existed.”

I’m doing what makes me happy and I bring that happy feeling to all parts of my business and life. Tell me if this puts a smile on your face – watch or listen to get Happy, be more productive, and be more successful!

Are you booking speakers for your group or meeting? After not singing a note for 35 years – in a moment of madness – I answered an ad to be a singer in a Rock’n’Roll band… and got the gig. I share my story about how stepping out of my comfort zone and getting a little outrageous has changed my life.

I want everyone I reach to experience the same transformation thru the “GoGaGaTM” process I’ve developed to help attendees Unleash THEIR “Inner Superstar” and realize that it’s never too late to bust through their fears to perform at levels they never thought possible. My talk takes people from “I can’t” to “I can” in 45 to 60 minutes – with my special brand of entertainment with a message.
