NOT ON YOUR WATCH: SUCCESS DOESN’T COME WHEN YOU’RE READY

Person Writing on White Book

“Put the time in to get there.”


i want it now

For some reason, people think that just because they are ready for an opportunity, that someone should automatically give them one. You have to realize that with opportunities come the preparation. This way if and when you do get your chance you are ready for the task at hand. But most people don’t want to wait their time, they just want to jump right on in and get to working immediately. Yet you are not remotely close to being ready. There is too much you don’t know and you’re thinking about a career like working at a fast food restaurant So go back, put the time and work some more. Understand that opportunity comes with preparation.

social media f***ed the game up

People look on the internet and see someone with a platform and didn’t realize how hard that person was working to get to that point. They just see the numbers and didn’t see the numbers when only a few people cared about the platform. But in this digital game, we don’t realize that the internet is not a real place. and when I say that I mean that it is not a place to believe wholeheartedly in when trying to climb in life. You’re given this perception that is nowhere near the real grind. And once you step into the game, you think you’re not working hard enough or you’re being lazy. The problem is that you can’t look these mediums as this face value entity. Nothing is ever what it seems; trust and believe to build that platform it took time.

patience is a virtue

I heard that good things come to those who wait. And this is true when you putting the daily work into where you want to go. So many people are working hard, but not working smart. And to those that work smart, you have to be patient. Life does not move when you are ready, it happens when it happens. Yet so many will not make it to that point because they are in a rush and rushed work gets overlooked.

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.
