"Success isn’t all about money and fame; it’s about achieving the goals you set for yourself. It’s about turning a dream into a vision; turning a vision into a purpose; turning a purpose into a lifestyle. But first you have to ask yourself “Why?”. Why do you want to be successful? Why do you deserve to be successful? And that’s what I’ve been asking myself these past few years.
Originally, I wasn’t sure what my “Why?” was. I thought that I just wanted money and attention because all of that would somehow bring me happiness. But after checking myself, I know my “Why?”. Whether it’s in music or not, I want to be successful for the sake of my family, my friends, and my community. Of course I want money and publicity from my music; they’re both necessary for my purpose. For example, I need money to invest in myself and invest in others, and I need publicity to have a voice. But more importantly, I make music because I love it. It’s my passion. It’s become my lifestyle. And every day I work to perfect it. Everything I put into it is 100% me. It’s what I’ve been through, what I’ve learned, and what I aspire to be.
Through success in music, I can achieve my purpose and positively impact everyone around me. That’s one of the reasons I joined REBELLIOUSOCIETY; we all have a similar mission. We are students, business men, philanthropists, artists, and many other things. We are more than an organization or movement, we are a family. Though we have our differences, we are united in our purpose, and one day we’ll change the world.
“It’s REBELLIOUS, the SOCIETY. Ironically no propriety. We a higher league than my sobriety."
