“If you could earn a living doing what you love the most, what would it be, and how would it change the world? Describe the specific goals you would set to make that dream a reality.”
What I love the most other than people and the earth is music. It’s the one language that is universal. I imagine myself in a band making music that is influenced by 60s, 70s, and 80s classic rock, folk, psychedelic, and progressive. The money would be given to support world hunger and the benefit of mankind as I am not a materialistic person. It hurts to hear that we have too much food in the west and not enough in other parts of the world. Makes starvation seem like a product of miss education and/or not caring. I believe most of the world needs to be woken up to things that don’t work or the things that are hindering themselves. The music and me as a person would reflect personal growth which is what everything starts with. My dream is already coming into fruition as I play every day and jam with friends at least once a week. I would like to take more music classes to further to support and grow as a player. The one music class I’ve taken has already helped me grow exponentially. I chose music because it’s what I enjoy the most and is the one thing everybody can relate to. I love how concerts are played overseas to people who don’t even speak the language. Shows the power and influence it can have. Big examples of power and influence through music are John Lennon and Bob Marley. Both using music as a message instead of just a fun way to make money. Everybody wants to change the world but most people don’t try. Why? Because they don’t believe in themselves. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” –Lao Tzu. And if you try and fail then you have lived a life worth living. As the two men I named above have.
