All of us want to understand the art of being BOOKED! This is for my makeup artists, singers, writers, freelancers of any sort. This is for my people, my party people… ok wait that’s a Missy song *inserts two step* lol. Ok back to being serious because getting booked on a consistent bases is no laughing matter. No matter what field you are in we want to go from “over looked to over booked”. Im here to share with you how simple it is. It is as simple as three words “TRUST THE PROCESS”.
So many times us as creatives can't grasp the concept of trusting the process. We have the subconscious notion that we took this huge leap of faith to embark on our creative journey and forget it’s a process. Its almost a false sense of entitlement that we develop because we believe all of our dreams need to come true right now because we made such huge sacrifices. Well, Im sorry to break the bad news to you but things always get worse before they get better. I recently had the pleasure of speaking at an event called Black Money Vol. 3 hosted by Playtime Worldwide and the topic was “How I got started”. I spoke about my process and my faith. If you missed it here is the link. (Shameless plug lol). While I went through the many things that got me to the point of working with clients like MC Lyte, VH1 and MTV I made it a point to express I keep a strong faith in everything that is happening.
Life can really show it's ugly face when dream chasing. Overdrawn bank accounts, don’t know where your next meal is coming from or even worse you may even become homeless. Some give up when the lows get this low but others remember that they have to what? Say it with me… “Trust The Process”.
In my journey as a makeup artist I went from being over looked to over booked to over looked again and back to over booked. The roller coaster of the “starving artist” is real but I refuse to claim that title. When we claim titles like “starving” we are claiming constant failure over our lives but if we claim victory before anything victorious even happens we have already won. Positive affirmations daily will bring the “booked” energy into your life. Every morning I wake up I thank God for his many blessings as well as what he has not blessed me with as of yet. It shows my higher power my true faith in what he has in store for me as well as the gratitude. All that great energy is what is going to help manifest greatness in your life. So lets be be beautifully devoted to being booked and start cultivating amazing things in our lives by just “TRUSTING THE PROCESS”
