You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. Steve Jobs ================================================================ Ft. T H E A F R I C A N G I A N T ================================================================ It’s crazy how practice of a talent becomes what God and the ancestors use to rise a nation, it becomes your healing and the healing for others. Even when you feel like you’re not getting anywhere with your work and everyday you wake up and doing the same thing, trust me just keep following your gut instincts on your creation. Mastering requires repetition and many yet long hours of working on something because you must be better than you were yesterday. Challenges are great for polishing your reason WHY you are doing what you are doing. Being a creator means I have the full responsibility to myself and others to heal through visuals. How I see brings joy to my soul, and truly the ultimate joy is those I have captured sharing the same sentiments once I’ve been given creative license. There are days where I am feeling like this shit ain’t going anywhere, I’m not growing, I want more. And then I start looking at work and ask myself when’s the last time I challenged myself within my craft and if it’s a while back I start looking at ways I can bend the rules or use what I have to create more epics, to push my tools to their maximum... it’s hard yes, but you have to be in it for the reasons you know are so important that quitting is not an option. Surround yourself with those you aspire to be like. Those who are content with their lives, that grind hard most of the year and take time out to enjoy the fruits of their labour and give back. Have inspirations around you not just people that look up to you. You will fall a lot. 😩😂🤷🏿♀️ life requires things to FLOW... as you inspire others, others should inspire you and they are inspired by others... accountability partners!
