Build your own story; you are the author!

Where you are in life, you wrote the story! Isn't that interesting? You are the author of your story, therefore you choose how to create it. Use your imagination and set your goals and go after them! With the right mindset and personal development, the path towards those goals will become possible. As I continue on this adventurous path of entrepreneurship, I meet a lot of people with lack of belief in themselves because of certain obstacles that are on their way. We, and yes I am including myself in this, WE have to learn to understand that life will ALWAYS get on the way no matter. Life got in the way this year, last year, the year before that and so forth. So when is the right time to take action? The answer to that is now. We will always have ups and downs as well as obstacles. Use them to drive you because those that succeed are those that took action when life got in the way. Cherish and use those struggles and those obstacles to build your story because if you move forward despite the fact that life got in the way, you will make it to the top and one day you will be able to tell that touching, moving, inspiring story to many people, that will be able to not only relate to you, but also build that level of belief in them that they can succeed as well. So when you are in a bad situation, you just don't stop and stay in it, you push forward so you can get out of it, and keep pushing forward so you are never in that situation ever again. I will leave you with this deep quote so you can let it sink in (and I do apologize, I don't remember where I got the quote from) here it is:

"You will pay the price of discipline, or you will pay the price of regret, either way you will pay the price."

Your why? Is it important? :)

The average person will attempt to achieve their goals and dreams 0 times before they fail.

The reason for this is simply because they have not found their reason or purpose to even start their goals and dreams. But even a reason isn't enough if its not bigger than you. When I began seeking for the right business to be a part of and to build with my friends, I always thought to myself, I'm doing this so I can create the money to build and own my own Music Production business. All along I shared that story and yes I do have a strong passion for music, how ever even this was not big enough to move me or my friends. Well recently a very good beloved friend of mine whom I truly love and care for said something that made me very mad but really hit deep enough for me to open my own eyes. She said, "You're lucky that you were not raised in the hood or the ghetto, because you don't know the struggles that we have to go through and you can't understand them." Those words hit deep and as I responded, I was not responding to her, but I was responding to myself. How beautiful God sets things up; he does work in mysterious ways. In response I told her, and I am making this shorter than it was, "I was born and raised broke, nothing was ever handed to me. I lived in the hood, I lived in the ghetto. I know what its like to struggle, I am not afraid to admit where I came from because it is what drives me. When I was little my mom worked at a factory and barely slept 4 hours while working the rest of the day. One day I went to the grocery store as a child, I was about 7 years old and when we entered that grocery store, she looked at the cost of the food, and she pulled out her money out of her pocket and she looked at the money, and she began crying her eyes out. Her tears poured out of her eyes because she realized that no matter how many hours she worked and how little she was sleeping, she did not have enough money to buy food. She realized that she could not afford to feed us. That memory stayed with me all those years and I will do anything in this world that is right in the eyes of God to help give back for all the sacrifices my parents made all these years to give us the very few things they managed to give us." That stayed in me so deep in my heart and mind that every day I dream about my success and now I have a vehicle to make it happen through.

"As a man thinketh in his heart so is he"
This means that if you dream and believe something in your mind, heart, spirit, and soul long enough, it will become real. And that quote is not coming from me, its in the bible, you will be amazed to find most success philosophies to be straight out of the Holy Book, because God put us in this world to do big things and be a blessing and a positive example to others. When I make it to the top, best believe I will remain humble, warm hearted, loving, and caring to others.

Introduction to myself and my purpose

Hey everyone, I want to thank you all for checking out my first blog ever on this. Just wanted to start out with a little bit about me. I'm Cesar and I work full nights 5 nights a week at a job full time, and I go home and create music in the early mornings after work. I own a small music business named DJ Remixed Entertainment and I'm a music producer who recently started sound engineering, song writing, and recording my own work. I produce for very talented artists from L.A., Chicago, Boston, Texas, and now Montreal Canada :) (pretty awesome huh!). Well I have a passion for the music but my job cuts back my time and takes my energy away, and I want to do music but not for the necessity of money, but for the love of this amazing art. I've been searching for a path to replace that job and have more time for myself, as well as my family and I finally found the right vehicle for it. I'm excited, I've found a way to not only retire myself young, but also help retire my parents. That means more music for you, and more free time for me!

Baby steps towards your dreams:

Just wanted to let all the dreamers out there know to keep dreaming and never give up on those dreams, know where you are today and where you want to be, and find a path from A to Z. Only you know what is best for you and we only have one shot to live in this world so make it your best shot :) So if you have goals and dreams in your closet put away, pull them back out, dust them off, and be like a child and dream once again, but this time, find a way to make those dreams come true. It won't be easy, but when they come true, they will be worth every bit of effort. Dream big, because only big dreams are miraculous.

Thanks for reading, I've never had a blog before so hope this was worth your time. Leave feedback!
