During my days of unhappiness and mental lifelessness, I stumbled upon a couple videos and articles that talked about writing down your goals, saying them daily and believing. It’s called positive affirmations. It basically says that you are what you believe. So I decided to try it, after all I felt like I had nothing else left to lose. So every day from that point on, I got up, looked at myself in the mirror (most times with tears in my eyes) and repeated these words “I am singer, I am living my dream. I am happy”. I will repeat this as many times as I could and even placed a reminder on my phone at 7:00 every morning with these words. This started from September 2017.
Well let’s just say that my dream actually started to come through. By November of 2017, I released my first single, “Head Up High” (Video Below). In December of 2017, I won the Andall Karaoke competition and by early 2018, I was one of the selected artist to perform at the Pure Grenada Music Festival. Now just to note, taking part in a Karaoke competition was something I would have never done based on who I am. But since many people didn’t know me, I decided to participate in this competition as a way of putting myself out there. You see just saying positive affirmations every day alone will not get you to where you want to be. You must put in the work as well. However, since putting in the work requires effort which is hard to do especially at your lowest points in your life, repeating positive affirmations and believing it every day, helps to rewire your mind and give you the boost to put in the effort.
Stay tuned for technique #2 in leaving my 9 to 5 job. I pray and I hope that these techniques will also help you with your dreams and aspirations.
