The Anticipation and Preparation for Something Great...
By Steve Clenor, BA, MSMS
For all music industry hopefuls out there, the words anticipation and preparation are necessary for your vocabulary and mentality. Anticipation of great things to come, and all the preparation that it takes to get to your goals. It is amazing, but the countless times I have ran into someone whom I would consider successful at their craft, when asked how they got to this point in their journey? Consistently, no matter how they respond or use their phraseology, the answer always come back to, "I worked hard and believed in myself". Just thinking of the progress I've seen in my own brands for the last year, I know they are right. There is no substitute for working hard and believing in what you have to offer the world. For me, the anticipation of tomorrow's progress is what I live for. I want to know what I could do better today to shine light on my brands that I hadn't thought about the day before. Relentless Hustler Entertainment, Inc. has come a long way since the beginning of 2015.
Think of it like this, you have a fleeting thought or idea, then you dream of that thought process, then you rationalize a plan to make your thought and dreams a reality, then you put it into practice, and finally, you see the outcome of your imagination. All this occur because of anticipating the best outcome, and preparing to act on a thought, then actually making it happen. When you achieve a personal goal that no one has placed on you but yourself, it is amazing, because you did this for and by yourself. When others don't have to motivate you and you love what you doing, nothing can stop you, because no one can deter you as their opinion does not matter. Anticipation and preparation leads to achieving personal goals that you didn't even believe you can turn into a reality. Let's keep it real, when you start woining on an idea, and from the beginning you recognize that you may not be able to travel the hard road ahead and really make this happen. However, later, as your hard work and sacrifice begin to pay of, and what you thought at the beginning was over your head, now it's second nature to you, that's also a result of anticipation and preparation.
This is one of the best quotes I've read this year, Samuel Smiles states, “An intense anticipation itself transforms possibility into reality; our desires often being but precursors of the things which we are capable of performing.” Now, I do feel along with that intense anticipation, preparation is also necessary to transform dreams and goals into reality. The quote says what I was thinking about when I decided to write this blog, basically, you take a fleeting thought, add anticipation of what it could turn into, and prepare to make it real by doing the hard work necessary to get to take the idea to the next level. Next thing you know, you start seeing results. It's the same as planting apple seeds in your backyard. First, you plant the apple seeds, then you nurture them by making sure you water them periodically and that they receive enough sunlight for them to grow. Eventually, you start seeing stems instead of seeds, then trees from stems, and finally, apples on the tree when it fully blossoms. This is an example of process of growth, life, and doing what it is necessary to actualize an idea. Success does not happen on it's own, you gotta put in the work that is necessary to get there. Are you willing to do what it takes?
