Art for many of my friends is passion.
I feel like I often lose the true meaning for what I am doing. Sure I would like everything to be successful and make money, but there is a deeper feeling within that I need to let come out. Ultimately that feeling is the art. It is the passion.
Passion drives the world for the greatest change. That is why we remember people and create stories for them when they are gone because we never knew what truly drove them. I would have loved the chance to sit down with Mother Teresa and talk about what drives her, but I realize I would not understand it at that moment.
My passion is confronted with lots of pseudo reasons because of experiences till this current point in the present. It is taxing to dredge through them to find the deepest root, the part that only a dentist could resolve if it were a toothache. I’m dealing with insecurity, uncertainty, wishful thinking, and regret on a daily basis. I don’t feel that makes me any less of a leader than anyone else. I however realize it gives me an upper hand because I can properly assess my current situation allowing me to let go and deal with pressing moments at hand with my team and ultimately the direction of my company.
Have you ever had people rally against you at one of the most critical moments of your life that would affect their’s and your well beings while your body is screaming to provide excuses but you can do the only thing that is expected of you, which is to truly listen and absorb their concerns while being selfless on a personal level? I have. My ego drives me daily which is required for my line of business, but deep down I have a love for myself, my co-workers, and the customers we are providing a service to. I will not put out a product I would not use. I will not do something because it is popular but ultimately harmful. I will love every waking second I am building my company.
Everything is stacked against us as humans at all times. We fight one another, we feel things that can’t be explained, and we make decisions based off a “gut feeling” that has no scientific value BUT we keep going on hoping we are right and won’t go the way of the dinosaurs.
That is my art, my passion, my reason to get up and go forwards with the conclusion of brain cells firing against each other to create a moment of genius that test data has proven to correlate to be better than what is currently available on the market. My passion is to be the best and thrive to suffocate the negatives against us humans. That is the real reason people believe because there is something deep to believe in. It’s not smoke and mirrors.
It’s calculated faith, and it goes further distance because it feels real and it feels good. The story is right. The team is toned. The future is bright. The tolls are paid and the car is gassed up to go. I’ve already started moving forward with these people. Will you join us?
