One of the hardest parts of my musical journey was breaking out of my own head and pouring an easily understood image onto an audio canvas that people can understand. I always felt like people missed the point to my artwork; and I failed to see with their eyes. I was unable to break out of my own depth enough to really connect with the fans and provide them a more impacting delivery.
Our view of the world has little to do with what we see in others, but more to do with our personal character and growth in this life. If you want a better world…. start by becoming a better YOU…
The only truly important steps in life are those that are led by an INNER YEARNING to grow BEYOND selfish ambitions. The moment we don't need validation is the moment we are FREE to pursue our purpose WITHOUT RESTRAINT.
It's not about the goal; rather, it's about the JOURNEY and LESSONS along the pathway TOWARDS that goal that create VALUE and CHARACTER in our lives.
So, here I am late at night working through business plans, site updates and a task list that resembles the tower of babel; and I'm wondering whether I can really make this work. Listening to the album and getting the feedback has been the most encouraging thing; but that doesn't always translate to sales and business growth; so I feel the need to be a bit realistic as well.
There are no opportunities too far from reach when you have the determination, perseverance and patience to properly administrate YOUR OWN RIGHT to that opportunity. Life is much like a symphony… conduct your masterpiece accordingly.
There is NO glory in CONTEMPT, NO honor in DECEIPT and NO success born from EGO. The success of most is merely an ILLUSION for self-glorification. The TRULY virtuous will see beyond the facades and embrace a life FREE from such vain concepts. They will pursue that which they know is a RIGHT of every soul, and acknowledge its potential in EVERYONE ELSE.
When overcoming obstacles makes you feel BETTER than others; you have approached life incorrectly. The purpose of OBSTACLES serves as life's HUMBLING MOMENTS that remind us we are INATELY CAPABLE to SUCCEED no matter the flaws and vices we may have. The "LESSON" should teach you that EVERYONE has this ability inside themselves; we just rarely exercise the VIRTUES in our nature.
Sometimes adversities in life are NOT tests of Faith. Sometimes it's simply a result of BAD DECISIONS that need correction. Seek the LESSON in every moment and don't be blinded to the PERSONAL ROLE your decisions and outlook play in these moments. Don't cheat yourself from the opportunity to BE BETTER!
In my highest of moments, I learn the most about my dreams; in my lowest of moments, I learn the most about my determination. The moments in between I look back on the journey and realize how important BOTH parts of the journey are to my goals. #embracethejourney #livewithnoregrets #i360jewels
