I’m away for the next 6 months, to regain my creative edge, and to develop a more productive creativee habit. I’ll make a tumblr that will feature more of my work as well as my animation. The past couple months have been the hardest in my life, I’ve faced a ton of setbacks and detours and felt like I lost lot of people I considered close. I maintain my hope and my faith nonetheless
With that said: The Word for Today : A New Attitude
For things to change for the better, you must ‘change the way you think.’ For example: a) View setbacks as detours, not dead ends. Winners don’t just face adversity; they embrace it, knowing it leads to future success. b) Tune out the critics and focus on doing your best. Anybody who accomplishes anything worthwhile has to overcome naysayers. c) When you’re afraid, praise God until your faith rebuilds. It may take a while, but praise and thanksgiving never fail, and they strengthen you to go on. d) When you fail, look for the lesson and remember all the times you’ve succeeded. Weed out self-doubt and replace it with scriptural self-talk. e) When you’re heading into battle, visualise yourself winning in God’s strength-with Him ‘…all things are possible’ (Matthew 19:26NIV). f) Instead of focusing on the past and worrying about the future, focus on the now-that’s where your influence is greatest. Remember, God said, ‘…As your days, so shall your strength be’ (Deuteronomy 33:25 NKJV). g) Instead of complaining, work on identifying solutions, and more will come to you. h) When you’re distracted, focus on your breathing, take a walk and clear your mind, think on what you can control, and surrender the rest to God. i) When you’re lonely, remember the people who’ve helped you this far and who love and support you. j) When you’re fatigued, take time to rest-but never ever give up! Finish strong in everything you do. k) When you’re under pressure and under scrutiny, smile and have fun. You only live once. Life is short… so seize the moment!
It’s a long interview but near the end he discusses the need to be creative, and for people to not be afraid to be themselves.
No this isnt a new HitBoy track. I love jay’s humility and honesty in this interview, and his talk about the flow of creative collaboration.
