Though most people strive to achieve success in whatever they do, only a few are willing to pay the price to make them a reality. This is because the journey to success can be down a tough, demanding path full of ups and downs with some career-threatening setbacks. Some people lose their drive early on in the planning stage, just by the thought of facing failure. Some people also give up on the first ‘no,’ fearing possible significant rejection in the future.
However, Lily Jay, a highly talented rapper in the American hip-hop scene, believes otherwise. According to Lily, the path to success is never meant to be easy, and that’s why you have to continually work hard to overcome any life hurdle to pull yourself closer to success.
Lily is a fast-rising rapper taking the industry by storm with her unique musical talent and rap skills. She has brought an outstanding touch of drill music into the industry, with unparalleled lyrical skills that set her apart from the competition. Lily is swiftly becoming a fan-favorite, with many hip-hop enthusiasts finding her style of music entertaining, thrilling, and captivating to listen to.
A self-made artist, Lily has been at the forefront of motivating other young people to go after their life goals. She often tells her story to motivate and inspire other aspiring artists, not allowing any hurdle to block them from going after their dreams. Lily believes that there is always a way around or through any obstacle, provided you embrace a positive mentality and approach to every situation.
Lily points out emotions or feelings as a major contributing factor to success that most people often overlook. She wants you to understand that it’s okay not to feel okay, and more significantly, it’s equally acceptable to allow yourself to feel pain. Lily argues that anything good comes at a cost, and you might overcome it if you learn how best to manage your emotions. But on the other hand, bottling your emotions is likely to do you more harm than good.
Lily has also found it essential to accept help from others when devising her plans and strategies. Most of the successful people you see out there have, at one point or another in their careers, reached out for help. She wants you to acknowledge that seeking help or assistance, especially from those ahead of you, is not failure. People learn from experience, whether it’s their own or other people’s. So, don’t be afraid to ask for help because you will always find someone ready to offer assistance.
Lily never tires of stressing the importance of surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals. Her advice is to form partnerships and networks with others as it helps make the journey easier. This also includes helping others when you can because that’s another excellent way to learn from people’s mistakes.
Lily is now focused on scaling her music brand and perhaps getting to work with other talented artists. The young rapper shares a dream to collaborate with the sensational MGK or Lil Wayne, which she hopes to make a reality.
