Pursuit of Greatness

June 8, 2018

Some people know my agenda. In fact, I would say only a small handful of people know my agenda. And most people don't. But I want to change that, right now. 


Something in me wants to help people. Whether it's helping them discover their gifts, ushering them into their destiny, or supporting them in their efforts by imparting at least some amount of knowledge, I do my best to inspire them to be greater. That's why I post inspiration every day. I want people to grow. People need to see that in a world where negativity often goes viral. At least I can plant a small flower every day in the large field of life.


That's part of my agenda. The other part of it has to do with me on a personal level. I push others toward greatness because it's what I require of myself. Now, what I'm about to say may get me in some trouble or it may not. Either way, I don't care because it's my driving force.


I don't want to be one of the best. I want to be the greatest of all time. And if for some reason that doesn't happen, at least I will be the greatest I can be. In production across the genres I cover, that's my aim. In smooth jazz, that's my aim. Period. Forget about the money. I just want to be the greatest, and I spend each day working toward that goal.


I encourage you to have the same mindset in your field. It doesn't have to be that extreme, but do your best to at least pioneer. Be all that you can be. Do something different. Be yourself! Don't follow the path that everyone else is taking. Of course, you have to pay your dues, but once you create your own signature in your field, push the borders.


And I can't stress this next point enough: Once you get to a certain point, reach back and pull somebody else up! I cringe at the sight of people unwilling to lift others. And it's happened to me before. Be warned that not everyone will be willing to mentor you. At any rate, by not reaching back, you're essentially saying that you want to grow at the same pace you have been. As you teach or mentor someone else, you learn more yourself! Not doing so is the best way to get passed up by someone that's willing to help others. Why do you think I started Vein Productions? I want others to grow as I grow. It forces me to raise my standards, simultaneously raising their standards, which in turn makes things better for the people willing to listen to what we do! Each one teach one. That's a good principle to incorporate into your life.


Hopefully this gives you a clear picture of my intent. No hidden agendas, no gimmicks, simply the pursuit of greatness and pushing others to be great. Thanks for taking the time to read this blog.
