This video by Big Sean means a lot to me. In anything you do, you are going to have to put in a quality amount of work to reap the benefits and rewards. Success doesn’t happen overnight. A lot of people can relate to the words that Sean spoke in this video. I am sure we all have worked on something and have had thoughts of giving up. If you got a dream, or if there is something that you want to do in this lifetime, do it! You only live one time, so what’s stopping you? You don’t wanna grow old looking back on your life with regret. I have friends that rap, act, sing and everything in between. I encourage them everyday to keep doing what it is they are doing because one day its going to pay off, and I’ll be right there to say I told you so. If you find something that interest you and you want to pursue it, lay the groundwork, get a solid team of individuals around you that legitimately want to see you win, then build! Work until you can walk away feeling like you gave it your all. In the process, know that it will take time. In trying to build a brand I have come to realize that there will be bumps, losses, haters, and even failures. There will be people that don’t believe in you, don’t support you and wholeheartedly don’t want to see you win. I’ve learned these life lessons through things I have experienced and from stories that my friends have told me. It’s all about prospering through the shade though, and pushing toward the bigger goal, whatever that goal may be. I wish more artists would create videos such as the one Sean made, just letting people know that all dreams are attainable and that it will just take time and patience. “I realized that a man who masters patience is a master of everything else. To make it to the top of your game, it takes patience” –Big Sean.
