Believe in Yourself Do it Yourself
Let that sink in for a moment.
Words are powerful. Words plus a deep sense of belief and definiteness of purpose is a strong concoction.
I have a friend who is a DJ. This same friend is a Photographer. This same friend was a football player. This same friend is overall a genuinely wonderful person, full of calm, positive energy and deep focus. My friend is not a jack of all trades and master of none, he is indeed the opposite. Of the fields mentioned above, he is master of all.
Respected companies in major cities commission him to shoot photos and videos and others commission him to DJ their events.
His belief system and dedication to his craft are unparalleled. They are what propel him to be so good at each one of his disciplines.
So, this same friend came out with an EP. I had the pleasure of opening it up. Check me out on the intro. Listen to it here:
I think about my friend Blue often. We speak almost weekly, trading supportive texts to one another. I take some of his moves and use them in my professional life constantly thinking, what would Blue do? I think like this to put the believe back into myself and to use that creativity and fearlessness and consistency to lead me to live an inspiring life.
I say this to say believe in yourself. Do what you have to do for you and for those you care about. And with this comes the wisdom of knowing that you may be alone on this road, you may have to do it yourself, whatever that “it” is.
Check this out. I followed my own advice. I wrote a book. I am not a writer. I am a designer and I began accumulating knowledge and experience in my field. I found myself coming across people who were a bit fearful of taking the journey toward their dreams and passions and I knew I could help them. My book is called Fire Your Designer. My book is a nice nudge full of resources to help people move past their fear and get started. The idea is you don’t need to have a big expensive designer or firm to start your business or to get started on your idea. You can fire your designer and get it done yourself.
So in the moments where you have an idea but get a little scared or overwhelmed just think, what would Blue do? You can do it!
Believe in Yourself. Do it Yourself.
