STAYING MOTIVATED: KEEP GOING EVEN THOUGH NOTHING IS WORKING

 

Person Holding Stay Focuseds Paper

“Work out.”


wake up go out

How do you stay going even when nothing around you is happening in your career? Well you have to do something on a daily basis. Me, I like to sometimes envision myself traveling somewhere that I have never been until I can afford the means to go. You are able to not only pass the time, but you also can find out you have motivation through the things you think about having in life. There is something about the vision that will get you up off the couch and pursue for your career. Because a lot of careers in today’s society involve you going out and getting the job. You can’t wait for someone to give you the opportunity, you have to go to it.

keep your head up

Sometimes it’s hard to go when you have dealt with so much hurt. But know, that you are not an anomaly, plenty of people have been in your predicament. I hate to use the cliché that nothing in life comes easy. And that is true, it doesn’t. I remember in a speech that Denzel Washington gave that stated “The greatest impediment to success in life is ease.” You will not go anywhere until you have felt that hurt and pain. And when I say hurt and pain, I mean the mental. Physical is not what you’ll experience, even in a career that is physical. The games that will be played on your mind will hurt you more than any hit on a football field, or building block falling on you in construction.

light at the end 

There are better days ahead of you in your quest for success in your career.  In time you will be where you want to be, but don’t let the now effect your future. Because the only person responsible for your come up is you.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
