This morning at my gym, I had a conversation with an elderly man that rekindled some #wordsofwisdom that helped me get to where I am today.
-As many of you know I'm at the gym almost everyday. Today an older man noticed how frequent I was at the gym and asked me "why are you here so often? Are you a body builder?"
- I told him, "no, I'm not. I'm working on my brand and it stands for hardwork so this is something I do to hold myself accountable...and I kinda want to look good because I model"
-he answers, "you've got the looks and the build, but you're too short,no?"
These words, evoked some old conversations of the doubters, a lot of them family members and loved ones, when I left med school to pursue my passion in the arts. "You don't have the degree for it, you don't have the connections, you're too late, just stick to a stable job" -I know many of you out there are young and want to pursue your passion like I do. So if I can give you some advice today, it wood be to ask yourself the question,fact or opinion? Most of the time, it's an opinion (listen to it though) and remember your opinion is the most important one. Do it your way, the way others havent seen it done. You'll eventually come up with your own style-your own flavor that others will want to taste. Much love as always.
