Dream Big By Alex Anderson

I know sometimes it’s hard to follow your dreams because the world is against you. It may just seem like it but it’s not that way, but sometimes you just got to push through those feelings of being hated and show these haters how it’s done. It also may be hard when you have no support at times.

 I personally know as an artist at times I feel discourage. About the middle of the 2nd nine weeks I felt like I wasn’t funny, my music sucked, and all sorts of things. Eventually I push through those feelings and I realized that everything is alright, and I told myself to just stay strong because I would come back 20 times stronger!

Now I’ll admit you don’t always end up doing what you want as a job or career.  I personally hope that you love whatever you end up doing for a career. That doesn’t mean quit whatever your doing never quit. If your work hard enough you will eventually get where you want to be. If you work hard enough you will get what you want. All you have to do is push.

Here is one example of a person who dreamed big and worked hard. He had to push a lot to get where he is today. Eminem is one of the greatest MC’s of his time period and to this day is known to be a legend. Eminem though didn’t make it over night. He was bullied for the fact for being white and being in the rap game. He was frequently tempted to be booed of stage. Just as he was losing hope Dr. Dre heard his Slim Shady EP and wanted a deal with him ASAP. Eventually he became famous and is now considered a legend and always will be. That is a prime example of someone who dreamed big and worked hard.  

Another example of someone who dreamed big is Lil Wayne. Wayne grew up in a broke home of New Orleans, Louisiana. He was around a lot of bad things. For instance he dealt with drugs, gangs, gang bangers and an abusive father. When Lil Wayne was 10 he had a big father figure his mom’s boyfriend. Wayne liked him because he didn’t look at him as a boy, he looked at him as a young man. Lil Wayne respected his thoughts and ideas. When Lil Wayne turned 14 his mother’s boyfriend was shot multiple times and killed. Lil Wayne was devastated and upset. At the age of 11 years old he rapped on Birdman’s (a famous record producer) answering machine.  Birdman heard it, signed Lil Wayne, and now Lil Wayne is known as one of the greatest rappers alive.  As you can see Lil Wayne has been through a lot of things but he managed to push during his worst times.

Lil Wayne and Eminem have gone through a lot but they  managed to do what they loved, broke or rich. So my point is if they can do it you can too. Always do what you love and let nothing bring you down.

What can you catch but not throw?
