I feel compelled to do each song justice by allowing it to develop in the exact way it wishes. To grow, run, jump, work and play without restrictions, rules or boundaries. My music is happy to be made and happy to be free. Not that what I am writing about is in any way painless. Pain is unfortunately part of life. Discomfort is part of our growth in life. Growth makes us better people. Growth and discomfort are helping us grow, run, jump, work, and play in a manner that brings us the realization of becoming what we truly want to be. It takes planning and sustained effort. Let’s continue on our journey starting now. Get ready, get set, and grow!
People I meet now have no idea that I was self-supporting at seventeen. My Dad went absent when I was thirteen. My Mom died of cancer when I was fourteen. They look at me now and assume that my life had all the advantages. My life has been very challenging. Gradually over time, with short and long term sacrifices, it has turned into a pretty decent life. Reading Zig Zigler and learning about goal setting has helped me a lot. Investing time in learning about family relationships has paid off. Living below my means (and that was awfully hard to do when I had no means) my life and hard work have been blessed. The best advice I ever got was to become responsible for my own life. Taking responsibility for my own life I did not wait for anyone or any group to show up to help me. The best advice I can give anyone is become responsible for your own life. Don’t wait for people to help you. Take ownership of your life now and make a plan for the future by working smarter first, then harder second. When you are helping yourself people will be more inspired to give that much needed help. Good luck and I will see you at the winners circle! I would like to thank people everywhere, who went out of their way to help a poor person like me!
I was volunteering at a community theater and was encouraging younger people. We have one shot to get it right in this life. Use your one shot to get it right, to get it right. You can say you are going to do something but unless it is scheduled on paper it is just a wandering generality. Once a goal is committed to paper you move from a wandering generality to a meaning full specific. I added that most people die with their music still inside them. Don’t die with your music still inside you. They then asked me if you died right now would you be dying with your music inside you. I said that I had written a few things but yes I would be dying with my music inside me. But once I get through this crisis I would get my music out. They then asked me if I had it scheduled. It is strange sometimes that when we are helping people that we are really helping ourselves. I have scheduled myself to write and record three songs a year. This music is dedicated those talented people and everyone who is taking control of their own lives.
I really hope that you really enjoy my music!
