There’s something to be said about persistence.
There’s something to be said about having a good support system in place particularly when you embark on an unfamiliar journey.
Kinda reminds me of the song “How Do You Keep The Music Playing” made popular by James Ingram and Patti Austin in the ’80s.
“How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep the song from fading too fast?”
How do you keep the momentum, motivation and inspiration – not when life is sunny and forthcoming – but when things get rocky and the world around you looks nothing like the vision in your head when you started your journey?
“If we can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with everyday to make it better as it grows
With any luck, then I suppose
The music never ends”
It’s so important to love ourselves; to be our own supporters; to keep our vision in focus; to not be thrown off by what is happening outside of us and to remember first that it always starts from within.
It means developing a ritual to support this, never straying far from what got you started in the first place. It means picking yourself back up and getting back on track. It means reminding yourself that this is just the second day haha! and things will get better!
You must set yourself up for success: the right books, the right thoughts, the right team.
Change is difficult yet today I remember – that the music is me and I intend to play out all my songs, that may outlast eternity!
