WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU CAN'T? - Inspiration At It's Best
Who on earth told you that you can't? Now let's look back, shall we? There must have been that time or moment in your life that someone you respected or looked up too opened up their BIG mouth and made you doubt yourself. Someone who you THOUGHT knew what they were talking about or atleast proved to you in someway that "THEIR way" is the same as "GOD'S way."
Someone who had lots to say to you every time you crossed their path and every time they had no one else to impose their beliefs on. Right? Do you remember this person or more then one person who took your dreams and flushed them down the toilet with theirs?!!! Hmmmm?
Let me guess. I can imagine that this person never lived their dreams because they either had "low self esteem," "too big an ego," or "fear of failure syndrome." I remember when I was young and so many different people always had something to say. The point of this article is that one day I decided not to listen anymore. But the hard part is that sometimes the negative thoughts just creep on in and it has not always been because of me! And it has not been because of you either. Capiche?!
SO THIS IS YOUR MOMENT TO PUT IT ALL AWAY!!!! NO MORE HOGWASH. NO MORE LISTENING TO PEOPLE WHO GAVE AWAY THEIR DREAMS. IT'S YOUR TURN NOW!!!
DO YOUR THING.......
I guess the first thing to do at this moment is reach down into your heart and make a decision. Did you always love music but someone told you that you were not good enough? Hell, most famous artists can't even sing!!! It is all done in the studio folks!!! Anyone could sound good with a good studio, seasoned musicians and a lot of cash. Period. Now it is HARD to write a HIT song, this I will admit. But the biggest problem with the music industry and an artist is the lack of promotion and finances. THIS has nothing to do with talent!!! OK?!!!!! So if this is what you want and love...KEEP GOING. DON'T GIVE UP. SHARE THE LOVE.
This is really important. The support you have around you is very important and will aide in the process of your future successes and achievements. If deep down you know that you are with someone who has a personality disorder, mental disorder, is a narcissist or self obsessed psycho.....RUN!!!!!!! You will be swimming backwards for many years and let me tell you, they will only be moving forward because they have used YOU to support their self delusions and out of control behavior.
THE THREE DAY FOCUS EXERCISE....
A life coach once told me to sit in a tub in the evening for an hour or more for three days in a row and do some serious thinking about what I really want to do in life. So I did and what I found out was that I'm really not much different then when I was as a teenager! Ofcourse I have grown up and I am much older and wiser!! I'm also a parent now too! That is not the point! The main point is that everything I loved then, I still love now. It is just now I have figured a way to make a living at what I love. So, what do you LOVE?
WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT?
So, you love to cook or paint. Maybe one day you turn on the television and you have an AHA moment! Maybe you saw one of those Chef shows and you want to cook! Or start your own food business with some sort of food that you just can't live without. Maybe just maybe you are exactly where you want to be and if you are CONGRADS because that is the hardest part. Making that decision that is right for YOU. Remember that the best writer's always write about "what they know." The best cooks make food that they are passionate about. The best songwriters are the one's who have really lived life. People who know what it is like to be exactly who they are.
WHO ARE YOU? YOU ALREADY KNOW.......X
