Every day presents you with an opportunity to be inspired. To keep going to keep pushing. ‘TD jakes always says never despise the days of small beginnings” this lesson is presenting itself to me in many different forms lately. Last night I went to DJ Black Coffee’s show here in Toronto, and the whole venue was filled up with the most diverse group of people. I started asking people in the crowd how they know him. The stories where amazing! This one girl said you know he lost feeling in his arm when Nelson Mandela came out of prison and this car ran into a crowd of people? One other guy turns around says “Oh his has been underground for years! Won several awards.”
I knew these stories about him but hearing them from people of different races and creed inspired me to not limit myself to a particular audience but to broaden my thoughts concerning who I write for. The lesson is he has been underground in Europe and North America for years, and now only his getting the mainstream attention. Imagine the perseverance and consistency it took for him to be where he is today.
Now I am more inspired to improve as a writer and be consistent and persevere during my underground time.
If that African child can, so can I, so can you.
