Phoenix Be Mine
As an Artist it is easy to get stuck in a rut of “Why am I not on the level I want to be on?” or the ever toxic, “People be hating on me and blocking my success.”
My unsolicited opinion:
Your path as an Artist (or whatever you may want to be for that matter) is your own personal dialogue with God and the Universe. Who the hell is big enough to “block” that?!
When I was newer at this I’d beat my myself up over not being where I wanted to be professionally as an Artist. Factually, I’m one of the illest at what I do, therefore I (wrongly) figured that everything would just magically unfold for me into a successful career. I had to step back and look at myself through the world’s view and realized I wasn’t seeking hard enough. So I started using my free time to hit the road, internet, and networks to let the world know that I exist and create opportunities for me and my team.
For example, currently we’re trying to penetrate the southwest region of America with my music, performances, and university appearances. So I booked a flight, flew out to Phoenix, and just started reaching out. In 4 days I met with 3 campus organizations, 2 different universities, 2 event producers, recorded at a studio, met with 2 theaters, and did a photoshoot for retail.
On my last night here I went on a mountain hike and had this picture taken.
As my grandpa use to say, “You gotta put some paint where it ain’t!”
Hope this is encouraging or helpful to someone. You deserve it all.
