Sorry! It’s been a little while since I last blogged. There are lots of things going on at the moment: just think organising, prepping, rehearsals for my performance 2 weeks tomorrow, beginning the adventures of one of my business ideas, learning a show in a day, forward planning….mind=blown.
So what’s it all about today? Well I had a very short and intense learning experience. I received ‘THE call’. Yes that one that is a dream and has everything going for it.
I’m talking about
that sweet gig :Ο
Alas, it was not meant to be. The rush of a drop out and necessity of having a player ready was all too much in the end. If I wasn’t going to Brazil, perhaps this may be a different story, perhaps I just wasn’t ready and maybe it’s simply meant to be?!
The moment you find out that you didn’t get the gig is a heart crushing moment. It’s tough and I’m sure you guys have all experienced it too. Why not comment below your experiences? 🙂 From this experience it is of course natural to have a low dip but it’s how you come out on the other side.
The next day it was a necessity to power on through and carry on. Carry on working on my projects, carry on working on the goals you set everyday. Never giving up on your goal. To send out a message. Your message. What’s your message guys? As I said sometimes it’s meant to be and this open statement gives you momentum; it’s as if along the way on a few opportunities (life learning lessons) are thrown at you. Letting you have those thoughts, provoking a spark of motivation. Check out Quarta 330 – Sunset Dub – I don’t know what it is, but the striking simplicity yet complexity sparks that motivation!

Let the power of meaning drive your momentum forwards to what you’re doing in the moment to achieve what you want to achieve, to do what you want to achieve. Failing and learning and failing again to get better. So let somebody tell you there criticism and ask why they think this = improve on it = Be the better version each and everyday.
