Being able to stay focused on the goals that you want is key to being productive, you have to be determined. I want to help other photographers make their dreams become reality, I will help others find their “why” in life and show them how to wake up and go get it….
There will never be a point in your life were it’s the right time to do a great thing, if you’re waiting for that perfect moment or the perfect timing its not going to happen. You know what you have to do, you have to create the perfect time, the perfect opportunity and the perfect situation. Stop waiting for things to happen!
A lot of photographers become comfortable, they stop growing, they stop wanting anything and become satisfied. Photographers shooting jobs they don’t like, jobs that are making them sick of picking up a camera, you see when you are not pursuing your goals you are literally giving up before even trying. When you have a goal you are stretching for and reaching for that takes you out of your comfort zone you will find talents and abilities you never knew you had. Self reflection is a must in this industry, ask yourself questions. Why am I not doing that or what can I do to achieve this??
There are things you think you will never need to know, that you may only need to know one time in your life, but that could change your career because you had that knowledge. Unless you attempt to do something beyond that which you have already mastered you will never grow, what is it that you looked at? That at some point in time you decided that you couldn’t do it, that you talked yourself out of it. Never doubt your own ability in achieving success!
You don’t beg average people to be phenomenal, you don’t beg good people to be phenomenal, you just are phenomenal and you will attract phenomenal. Surround yourself with successful people and watch how things unfold. Haters will come and go but true, down to earth, genuine people will support you through any struggle, and trust me there will be times you just want to give up, push through it!
What reason can you remember that you could call on that could make you get back up, find that reason. If you are not where you are or where you want to be and you don’t have what you want to have, if you are not where you think you should be at this point at this particular place, it has nothing to do with the system but everything to do with the fact that you are not making the sacrifice. Eat, sleep and dream photography. Trust me, just let your craft consume you, dedication pays off…….
I want you to make that dream become a reality because if you don’t you will be working for somebody else, to make their dreams become a reality. Lets face it everyone wants to run their own show but yet they tell themselves its impossible. Lets look at the word “Impossible” and split it, “ IM POSSIBLE”…….
Listen to me if it was easy everybody would be doing it, there are people right now who are working that don’t want to work, people who hate there jobs but they keep getting up to do them. Guys I understand, we all need to put food on the table and a roof over our heads, put the kids through school etc but can you really go through life hating what you do?? Find your “why” write it down, stick it on the wall, in your car, you could go extreme and tattoo it on your body. Once you identify your “WHY” you cant quit, you cant give up. When you want something so bad you will stop at nothing to get it. The best advice I ever got was – If nobody is giving you an opportunity, you go and create it!!
There are so many ideas, dreams that never became reality, hopes and aspirations that were never acted upon. Question is what are you going to do with your time, what drives you. Greatness is a lot of small things done well, day after day after day. When things don’t work out for you, when things happen that you could not anticipate, what are the reasons that you can think of that can keep you strong. You don’t have to be perfect to have what you want!
You will never ever be successful until you find your why and turn it into greatness and until you allow your why to push you from where you are to where you need to be. Stop running and embrace that why. I challenge you to push yourself.
You see its easy to be on the bottom, it doesn’t take any effort to be a loser, it doesn’t take any motivation or drive in order to stay down there on a low level but it calls on everything in you to succeed, you have to harness your will to say I’m going to challenge myself. I’m going to stop at nothing to make this happen!
The biggest enemy you will have to deal with is yourself. You have this opportunity right now to make a change, but it means absolutely nothing if you don’t take advantage of it.
You have got to start saying yes to your life, you got to start saying yes to your dreams, yes to your unfolding future, yes to your potential as opposed to saying no!
You will never be here if you give up, give in, if you quit. You have got to want to succeed.
So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality, what we really want seems impossibly out of reach or ridiculous to expect so we never dare to ask for it.
You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance in doing what you love, everything around us that we call life was made up by people no smarter than you. When people can’t do things themselves, they going to tell you it cant be done, you are going to be criticized, people are going to take your achievements and throw them to the wolves of society. You just need to stick to your guns and say, why not!! Why can’t I be the best? Why can’t I live that life? Why cant I be successful?…….
I got one question for you, are you going to live in the world you dream of or the one others have designed for you??
Limits are often just an illusion….
