RE: Three Feet From Gold...
This is a universal truth. I learned that lesson very early on. In fact, I would say my father first planted the seed with a saying that his father passed on to him:
"Turn a defeat into a victory"
So naturally, when I first started working on my personal projects, and I came upon defeat, I instinctively already knew I was standing on a pile of gold
Now, whenever I get an idea that I can visualize being incredible where it just to come to fruition, to reach maturity, I think of it as a guaranteed success.
That doesn't mean I will succeed, it just means I believe I will succeed. That's the only mentality, as I've come to learn, that I can work with
Doubt and uncertainty result from lack of vision, not temporary setbacks, obstacles, and barriers.
The key to success is a clear, focused vision, and the drive to keep the ball rolling until it finally crosses the goal line.
Working on projects that we believe in is the goldmine that we are sitting on
Because failure is the greatest teacher. We only learn by making mistakes, and learning how to do things better. We cannot learn by philosophizing in our armchair, we must go out into the world and test our ideas out.
Then Nature, the Cosmos and Intelligence are given the space to manifest any hyper-dimensional forms that the world is ready for.
The bigger the idea, the more ambitious the project, the more satisfying it is to encounter failure, to have our expectations of success shattered, only to be rebuilt with more solid foundations, and toughened resolves.
Great post my friend. I'm sure you must be cooking up some mean beats these days. One love xx
