It’s important to have the right tools in this life. Whether you are starting a business, wanting to have a great relationship, or just trying to pursue your dreams. A few months ago, I came up with a saying. “You make yourself look good to make yourself feel good. You keep yourself active to make yourself productive. You keep yourself healthy to make yourself happy.” I truly believe that these are essential tools for any stage or season of life and anything that you are pursuing.
Let’s break this down for a moment. “You make yourself look good to make yourself feel good.” We shave. Get our hair done. Clean up. Shower. Get dressed in clothes that we love to wear. When we do this, we have an overall feeling that everything is good. You feel confident and ready to conquer the world. “You keep yourself active to make yourself productive.” I know for me, when I wake up early in the morning, go to the gym and workout, then go work, I find myself more productive while I am at work and even after in the evening. Why? Because I got up and got active. I got my blood moving. By 7:30 in the morning I’ve completed a 1.5 hour workout and feel like I’ve accomplished something before my day has even started. “You keep yourself healthy to make yourself happy.” Have you ever noticed that when you eat unhealthy food that it makes you not feel so great? If you’re anything like me, it might not make you upset (well it might) but it probably doesn’t make you happy either. But even in a literal sense, eating healthy gives you natural energy. Now I’m not saying salads and almond milk, but good clean food. For me that tends to be eggs, oatmeal, chicken, steak, rice, potatoes, vegetables, fruits. These kinds of things literally fuel the body and give you the energy that you need to workout and be active to your fullest potential.
When it comes to music, it is no different. You still need to feel good, be productive, and be happy. It takes a lot of work to be a musician, to be an artist, and you have to equip yourself with the right tools to make it in any facet of the entertainment industry. So remember friends, you have to make yourself look good to make yourself feel good, keep yourself active to make yourself productive, and keep yourself healthy to make yourself happy. God bless.
