I got home from Thanksgiving dinner last night and took about 15 minutes, standing outside looking up at the stars. It was pretty chilly out, the smell of wood burning in the air. I just reflected on the past year of my life, and how much has happened in such a short time. I made the decision to get out from underneath a complete prick of a boss, and go out on my own and I realized after working a BILLION jobs, and working for other people, that it has been the best decision I could have ever made.
So many people fall into situations where they have to work for someone, or they feel trapped and can’t risk going out on their own because they have kids, they have a mortgage, college etc. I decided a long time ago, that I would live my life on the terms that I created. For good, for worse, I’ll make my own road and ultimately choose my own destiny. In life, there are sacrifices that will always need to be made, to get to the next level and next phase.
Fear is the last thing that should be on your mind! You have to be prepared to put it all on the line, and be prepared to loose everything. I gave up on the 9-5 life when I threw myself into a van to tour the world playing music. I’ve always been a “unstable” type of career driven individual, which makes sense for me, to be a young entrepreneur attacking life, to carve out my part of the business world, seen through my crazy eyes. The past year has been hard, exciting and so much god damn fun. I can’t even begin to talk about all the amazing things I have planned for 2014.
I realized as I was starring at the stars last night, that I’m free. I’m free of the negative individuals that were bogging me down for years because I cut them out of my life, and replaced them with forward thinking individuals who push me to get better and learn more each and everyday. “If you’re always the smartest person in the room, you need to surround yourself with new friends”. #getbetter #livefortheunknown#makeprogress
