OVERNIGHT SUCCESS

“It takes time, so be patient.”


CRAWL BEFORE YOU WALK

When it comes to success in life so many people oftentimes want to be in this place called success overnight. And when I say overnight, want to start today and millions in less than three years. Because the reality is that you may be building the next 15 – 20 years. Are tou ready to take that climb in life? And answer to that question is that most are not willing. They want to go to sleep and wake up in this place called success. Because think about, who really want to spend the next 20 years building something that does not work in the end. But there really is no other way to climb but to climb that way. Because you not only have to be good but consistent.

CONTEXT IS IMPORTANT

When you want to be somewhere in life overnight you have to put it into context. The is a such thing called overnight success, but it may take 7-10 years. Sometimes it could take you up to 15 years. That sounds like a long time to a lot of people but it really isn’t that long. Especially when you’re talking about a sustainable career. We hear at times about the person who starts today and in less than a year they are in a very comfortable lifestyle. Next, year after they massive. This occurs with famous singers. But they don’t last too long because it happens and goes due to their lack of climb. In the midst of tge storm, they are unable to bounce back from a lot of setbacks.

WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH

In a life of success you will have down moments. And when that happens, you have to know how to rebuild yourself. People who have built up can bounce back easier because they have been through the storm. The ones that struggle will start to falter. And the falter is when you see who was built for the life of success. Because being successful means failing. You will be tested at every turn in life. And without the ability to bounce back you will lose what you worked to have in life.

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 since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
