If I could earn a living doing what I love most I would be a musical performer who doesn’t need to have success by the world’s standard to be happy. I would change the world through the lyrics and compositions I will have spent many hours perfecting. My definition of success does not come from how many followers on Twitter I have, but in that one person I can connect with and help. In turn, that person would help another person, starting a chain reaction that stems off to places once thought to be unreachable. My first goal in making this fantastical dream a reality is going to a college I can learn what is needed in order to make the greatest impact on those around me. I will graduate by December of 2018. My second goal is to have a demo produced and distributed by the year 2019. Third, I will have a contract deal with a record company and be making plans for a launch tour by the year 2021. I will also have a national tour by 2022 and a worldwide tour by 2024. I realize my goals are large but I also know without a great risk, there cannot be an even greater reward. I’m ready to take the risk in order to earn a living doing what I love and, in return, change the world. The question is, are you willing to help me?
