Purpose for life

Semi’s Blog: Purpose for life

Should we wait for the approval of other individuals, especially those who cannot get their own lives together? Can another person really tell you if you are on the right path?

Many times, we look outside of ourselves for answers….. but if we look, we would acknowledge that the answers already lay deep within our own beings. We tend not to trust in the creative power that was implanted in us by our Creator. But, just the fact that we are here is an endorsement to succeed. The sooner we realize our inner potential and act on it, is the closer we get to our purpose in this life.

No matter how you perceive you may have been conceived, there is no such thing as chance. We are all here for a reason. Your purpose in life can only be fulfilled by you, no one else.
.
We were all created originals so living the life of another person is not worth it. This is why I often say to my friends, “our life is not a dress rehearsal it is the show, the real thing; so let’s give it our best!” It is also a reminder to me that I need to give my A-Game each time. I want to inspire you to do the same.

So daily, I make a conscious effort to remind myself of this. It’s kind of my daily obligation now. So whatever I do, I execute in such a way that it can be my best…. and if I inspire you or someone else in the process, I achieve my purpose.

So part of my purpose is to bring you joy, peace, hope and happiness with every song I write.

My purpose for life is to share Inspirational reggae with the message of ‘One Love’ to the entire universe. I long to see mankind live as one in peace and harmony, I long for” better days”

What is your purpose? Are you working towards realizing your potential?

Pursue your passion

Pursue Your Passion

A wise man said to me, “If you want to be successful in life, find something that
you’re passionate about and pursue it relentlessly!”

With this passion burning in my belly, he encouraged “you would never have to work
a day in your life.” It was excellent for me however, the sad part to this story is that it
took me a long time to accept and apply his advice.
Still, I am grateful that it was not to late.

There are so many things that I enjoy doing in this life, for example, my career in
sales and marketing excites me and keeps me going. For some time I made my living
doing just that, day-in day-out. Still, I always found myself looking forward to the end
of the day. This is when I would go home to my old guitar to record an idea for a song
that came to mind while I was out on the job.

I never could understand how it was that no matter how successful I was at my day
job, it never gave me the satisfaction that I got from my music. The feeling was
incomparable, holding the mic and singing away, whether it was for one person or a
crowd. I also came to realise that I was always happy doing music and though the pay
sometimes was not encouraging, I always felt fulfilled. I felt fulfilled pursuing my
passion.

Today, I still work with sales and marketing doing Real Estate, in Saint Lucia to be
exact but it is now in its rightful place, second to my music.

I now perform at least four nights a week, and I look forward to each night as I
am elevated mentally to that place in my mind where I get that natural high; a musical
elevation.

For you, I say do the same, the wise man was right, find that thing you have a passion
for and pursue it with all your might!

I have now been able to craft a brand of music called Inspirational Reggae which
inspires me and so many others! I hope it inspires you as well.

Simply described, Inspirational Reggae is modern roots reggae with a message to
motivate and inspire, promoting the one love theme without imposing any particular
religious ideology on the listener. My album “Conscious Paradise” is the most recent
offering which fits the brand Inspirational reggae.

Remember to find your passion no matter what it is. Develop and nurture it so that
you can truly experience that secret to a life of success.

Do you have a Passion ?

One Love

Find Music with Lyrics

You know, today was one of those days where I met someone online who shared a great idea with me. She not only complimented me on what she thought was my excellent catalogue of music, but she gave a suggestion that is still etched in my mind. She explained how she was interested in learning my songs and thought that I should publish the lyrics. What a great idea – I really should meet people like this more often.

I have this habit from time to time doing exactly what she said. I would go online and type Find music with lyrics. I would then find something I like, buy it and enjoy learning something new. I just never paid attention to the fact that I should be nice to my fans and provide the same for them. I will definitely treat this as a worthy project in the next few days. So a few weeks from now, I will contact her with the good news that she can try find music with lyrics and there mine will be. Hey, why not.

I call days like these – days of inspiration. People connecting with people, just randomly and sharing ideas that improve what they are doing. I think the online space is a huge gift, as it allows all of us this great new medium to interact and be of better value to each other.

My promise to you is that sometime soon, lets say by august this year, you can google find music with lyrics and there I will be. Feel free to get back to me if you don’t.

My new challenge!
