This Is Important Advice – Not Just For Anyone In Entertainment

Shawn Byfield success coach shares advice

SOME ADVICE I SHARED at Groove Street Dance Convention:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡️ It’s okay to say NO. It’s okay to say NO 🙅🏾‍♂️ to the things, people, experiences etc that don’t serve you, or help you stay true to yourself.

ALSO:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
➡️ Entertainment is a tough industry. With that being said, take care of your mental 🧠 health, because you will hear a lot of NO’s yourself. Develop mental toughness, while being kind to yourself, because you need and deserve it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Does this help?

What Happens When You Don’t Have All The Answers?

I DON’T HAVE all the answers.

🤷🏾‍♂️⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nobody does!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not you. Not me. Nobody. And that’s ok. You’re NOT meant to have all the answers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s the QUESTIONS ⁉️ we ask that make life interesting.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And… not having answers is the cure for boredom, because you’ll always have something to do!

“This Is Impossible?” Here’s The Single Question To Ask To Get Started

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. It all comes down to one word: DESIRE. ✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The question “Is it even possible?” then becomes: “How bad do you want it?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because if you have an unruly fire burning 🔥🔥 within you, and your desire is big enough, you’ll figure out how to make it happen.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Turn impossible into ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* I’M POSSIBLE! *
