“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” —Mark Twain.

For a lot of people, particularly creatives/entrepreneurs in music and entertainment, you can often feel as if you are constantly searching for who and what you want to be. In this process a battle of the mind starts, and you can go through phases of ‘am I going to make it’, ‘what if I don’t make it’ or ‘I can’t do this anymore’.

This is NORMAL. The key is holding onto the fact that your purpose and reason for being here will come eventually and if it doesn’t feel 100 percent right, then it hasn’t come yet! Be mindful also that when someone talks about your purpose being fulfilled it may not come all at once. Instead it may get to you in stages, and its up to you to fulfil each one and maximise your full potential.

Within industry figures such as Jamal Edwards actively increasing awareness about mental health, we have definitely reached a point where young people (particularly males) can be more open about mental health. UK artists such as Nolay, Bonkaz and Stormzy are now sharing the dark side of their journeys too, but using it as a means to empower people and let them know they aren’t alone.
