Every person has good and bad days. Sometimes everything goes really well and you're just happy to be alive. Other days everything feels like it's falling apart and you can't help but think that things will always be this way.
Life is always fluctuating. It's a constant wave of up and down.
The dilemma is this: If you are living for own happiness, your whole being will be about how you feel. When you are feeling down, your whole world is gloomy. When you are happy, the world is amazing.
Yes, I enjoy the good times and detest the bad but it is important to keep focused on your ultimate purpose.
If your purpose is to help others, help others even if you're feeling down. If your purpose is to make music and inspire people, do it even when you don't feel like it. You see, emotions are too unpredictable. You need a purpose to guide you through all these different mood changes. Something that is unshakable. This will be the foundation that gives you the strength to persist through any circumstance life throws at you.
The secret is to choose a purpose much bigger than yourself. A purpose that is never ending.
If your purpose is to get rich,
you will have no purpose when you're rich.
If your purpose is to become famous,
you will have no purpose when you're famous.
If your purpose is to help others,
you will always have a purpose.
