How-to Find Your Power – Kanye West

I just needed time alone with my own thoughts got treasures in my mind but couldn’t open up my own thought.

Since I dove into full-time self-employment, life has been a whirlwind. Ups, downs, I’ve been thrown in every direction at least once. I’ve gotten swept away by my instincts and I’ve done a lot of moving around. My courage, patience, and work ethic have leveled up gradually since making the leap.

Though, the most incredible transformation is to be seen in my creativity. Compared to myself just a year ago, my creative skills have developed exponentially. 

Before hitting the road I was always in the same spot. I went to all of the same places and repeatedly did all of the same things. Save a few amazing exceptions, my life was unfulfilling and I found no real joy in my day-to-day actions. The dead-end job that I subjected myself to for far too long had an eerily effective way of sucking the creativity out of me.

Or so I thought.

After I abruptly left that job, something unreal started to happen. I found myself overwhelmed with a flood of creative thought. Creative thoughts that were always present in a state of incubation. Muted by my self-loathing and life’s monotony.

Assuming control of my life and choosing to walk the hardest route available effectively unlocked the floodgates. From within flowed my refined creativity, an unstoppable power.


Washing away everything I knew and building something I love in its place has been the most difficult experience of my life.

It has easily been the most rewarding.

(P.s. The quote is from the song Power by Kanye West. The above video is a sample, it occurs in the full version, check it out. Most people recognize the song from movies and other media.)
