How to Feel Like a Rock Star

Are you a rock star?
Are you a rock star?

Brand yourself a Rock Star!

Chances are at one time or another you have been called a rock star. That moment felt extraordinary, didn't it?

It doesn't take much to acquire a rock star status. All that's required is to be yourself. How difficult is that?

At one time a rock star was, just a rock star. A musician who performed rock music. They are still rock stars, but now we could all be a rock star and not even know how to sing!

As a matter of fact even if we sing off key and the dog covers his ears, you could still brand yourself a rock star!

I've listed some qualifications to be able to perform like a rock star. Your performance doesn't have to be an Oscar winning moment. Take baby steps if you need to.

If you need some motivation I suggest you watch the Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney music video. I also recommend watching the movie Rock Star if you haven't seen it yet.

Once you get in the habit of rock star thinking and actions...the rest will come naturally. Always remember that someone considers YOU are a ROCK STAR!

A song that will motivate you!

This hit single by Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw will make you feel like a rock star!

Rock Star 101:

  • Work hard without complaining. Don't expect things to be handed to you.
  • Be courteous!
  • Don't give up on a health battle, you fight and win!
  • Don't whine. Do you seriously think whining helps?
  • Conquer an addiction.
  • Think and exude positive thinking. Even when you think it's just not possible!
  • Smile at yourself in the mirror! Smile at strangers! Just smile!
  • Don't be hateful.
  • Be gracious!
  • Appreciate what you have.
  • Be thankful.
  • Don't sweat the small stuff!
  • Be a leader. Not a follower.
  • Instead of thinking "what if," think "so what!"
  • Have realistic goals and meet them!
  • Accept yourself for YOU, not for who you think you should be.
  • Be open-minded.
  • Believe in yourself.

More ways to be a Rock Star...

  • Dump the ego.
  • Don't allow negative people to bring you down.
  • Never substitute your morals for goals.
  • Be brave and courageous.
  • Always be your number one fan!
  • Accept people for who they are.
  • Excel at what you are good at.
  • Finish what you start.
  • Learn to play an instrument.
  • Sing no matter if you think you are good or not!
  • Be true to you!
  • Avoid conflict, don't seek it out.
  • Respect other's opinions and don't judge.
  • Think outside the box.
  • Realize that there are two sides to every story.
  • Veer off the path once in a while.
  • Stand your ground, don't back down.
  • Rock stars are honest, reliable and keep their word.
  • Take pride in your accomplishments.
  • Accept compliments and don't shy away from them.
  • Don't lurk, participate.
  • Apologize if you are wrong.
  • Forgive your enemies and then forget them.
  • Keep your promises.
  • When a rock star says they have your back, they mean it.

A rock star, you say. If we are talking rocking chairs here, Linda, then I am definitely a rock star. Although some mornings I need help getting the rocking chair started.

Despite that feeble attempt at humor, I applaud your list which I always follow except for the forgive and forget one. That's impossible for those who are Scorpios.

Jason Marovich profile image

Jason Marovich 4 years ago from United States

If I slept in when I was young, my father would wake me up with, "Rise and shine, Rockstar". This was his way of letting me know he didn't approve of my rock star habits (i.e. sleeping in when there was work to be done). Funny how times have changed. Being a rockstar today means going out and getting what you want out of life, of making a mark in the world. And it means doing it by being outgoing and tenacious. It's very hard to make a mark in this modern world without making a little noise along the way. Voted up and awesome.

Hi Jason, I like the way your day thinks with "sleeping in" I used to always tell my daughter they weren't rock stars YET. They are now:) Thank you for your comment.

Sunshine you are truly ausperious. And I must say that, just if you do not already know :) , that you are a goood psychological healer and mood changer. I started the hub thinking something else and came out at the end with another thing much better than I previously thought....


Heather Says profile image

Heather Says 4 years ago from Buckeye, Arizona

I remember reading this awhile back but never commented. For shame. I love your tip : "Be thankful." So many times rockstars are portrayed as too cool or too busy to first of all BE thankful but then SAY so. A true rockstar should always be thankful because nothing ever just happens and the "good stuff" that one should be thankful for wouldn't happen without rockstar fans. As I've grown up, I've learned to be thankful for the bad stuff too and being thankful overall just makes me feel like a better person-- a cooler person-- maybe even a rockstar.

To be honest, Linda, I'm not sure I want to be a rock star. From what I read about these folks, they are not exactly happy people. Maybe I'm wrong. I always liked Kenny Rogers and I like that quote from his song: You gotta know when to hold 'em, and know when to fold 'em. There's a lot of truth in that.

I voted this UP, and will share.

You are the rockstar! For simply putting this together if nothing else (which is far from the truth), you demand rockstar status. I cower in the shadows as you shine above the rest. Great list!
