HAHAHAHOHO-HOLY SHIT JAK! This is priceless! This is why you will never ever ever fail at life! My god this is bold, beautiful, and frighteningly honest. I know you know that no one here means you ill will, but the constant sacrifice of your most priceless commodity – YOUR TIME – with little to no reciprocation is what every influencer or artist feels throughout their existence – Only 25 people came to watch Ed put on a fucking CLINIC he spent so many hours researching that will change the course of sonic and sound engineering history. More honestly, he was demoing MY cabs and only 25 people came to watch(Not saying my cabs are the game changer, Fractal is(Not saying you’re not a superstar Ed but my bands more popular lol(no offense Ed))). And finally, this school is free and you may think that 50k subscribers is a lot, but 10 MILLION people have BOUGHT and PAID for A7X records.
All I want to do is to create a perfect circle of harmony where everyone helps each other over and over again. This place is the closest I’ve ever gotten to that feeling but we have a long ways to go.
In closing, I’d greatly appreciate it if you answer TWO questions for every ONE question you ask. Answer a question that feels comfortable to you. Don’t just phone it in. Don’t worry about sounding like the smartest person in the room either. Often the simplest response coming from the heart resonates the best. Try to speak from experience but if you’re new and have little experience, just be supportive.
In Closing! Part Deux. GO HELP JAK! Has she not done enough for everyone?!! If the 50k people here all pitched in just 5 cents each, she’d have enough to record 5 songs. I’d LOVE to hear those songs, wouldn’t you? Link here mother fuckers- https://www.gofundme.com/help-fund-our-band039s-album

Nice to meet you Aileé, thanks for sharing. I hope you enjoy your stay with all of us!December 6, 2018 at 9:42 pm in reply to: ***Beginner's Mental Block: Get Out of Your Own Head!!!*** #181664
Fuck, mind blown Jak! As an influencer, I feel like this is the most difficult thing to say to someone that is so down on themselves. Idols look so perfect from a far. Their story so predestined. Their path so perfectly paved. BUT, nothing could be further from the truth. The COLD HARD FACT is that the only person that can help you the most is yourself. You have to find your inner strength ESPECIALLY when life is at it’s darkest. Even if you have a great inner circle of friends and family, which most don’t, they can’t carry you to ultimate happiness and success. ONLY YOU have the power to make it through the tough times.
NOW, after saying that, I don’t want anybody to think that I’m including mental illness or clinical depression into this evaluation, I am only speaking about the much overlooked but brilliant inner art form of accountability. If you do feel like you have held yourself accountable, and you don’t sit around blaming others for your problems and you still feel a deep sense of depression or even worse, suicidal thoughts, please tell someone NOW. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. We are all here to help you!
In closing, I truly appreciate your insight Jak, you can clearly see your authenticity and experience in this manner. Trust and belief in one’s self is the ultimate pathway to happiness. It’s the hardest thing to achieve for so many but I promise I’ve been there and you can pull through.
Thanks so much for this Jak, this is by far my favorite forum thread to date. I truly hope that it will resonate with others in need. Happy Holidays everyone!
