The honest truth about me.
When I wake up in the morning I realize that I dread anything that doesn't have to do with creativity. I wake up and think god what would life be if I was born rich or if I inherited something spectacular from my parents or grandparents. I wake up and I want to create. Then by the time I'm in the shower brushing my teeth I start to brain storm thousands of ideas that I would want to develop. I'm jumping in the car to drive to work and I slowly start losing all of this energy that drives me. I have been cut off, honked at. 12 stop lights. 4 tolls and I am already over the day.
How could I possibly want to follow my dreams when I have to jump through all these hoops just to get to make a living. Most people in life would like to be successful, and they all would like to have a purpose. And a drive that burns so bright it could brighten the entire universe but it will never be that easy. One thing that I have noticed with Generation Y is that instant gratification is the only thing that would reward us enough to keep working.
If your job paid you the hours that you worked as you walked out of the door wouldn't you feel more inclined to show up and do a great job? I would!!!! How do we stay focused In a time where everything that is put in front of us is a distraction? Another question that I always ask myself is how can I break the cycle of giving up on something that I really want and something that I yearn for,
How can I reach the finish line? Lying on my deathbed knowing I could have affected the planet or its people in my own way is the only FOMO I have today. Below are the five biggest regrets of dying people, as reported by Bonnie Ware.
-I wish I didn’t work so hard
-I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings
-I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
-I wish that I had let myself be happier
-I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself and not the life others expected of me.
The one thing that stuck out to me the most was I wish that I'd had the courage to express my feelings. When I started mistrmilk I had this business plan. I had so much that I wanted to do and say. As I began going to my trusted confidants who have worked with elite people in these types of industries, I shortly realized that I would lose my voice and way, that I couldn't be Anthony. I put a pause on my baby. I told my child to be silent.
I began to care way too much about what people would think of me if I just said whatever I wanted to and how I truly felt. Steve jobs said, " for the past 33 years I have looked in the mirror and asked myself if this were the last days of my life, would I want to do what I'm about to do today"? I would like to reach the finish line, my finish line. And I want to get into gear with myself and my followers. You aren't many but you are here and you are viewing this. And that means the world to me,
I wish I could sit down with everyone over a cup of tea and delve into your dreams and aspirations. I hope that I can help you at some point even if it makes you smile from a picture or entertain you from an experience. I just want you to feel what I feel. MistrMilk is my baby, and you are welcome to say hello and hold him and tickle him and play with him as much as you want. Thank you for reading.
