A Public Service Announcement from Ms. P!nk Herself

I rarely watch TV.

We cancelled our cable and kept our Netflix subscription for Sesame Street and the random series we get hooked on and binge watch every few months.

So the other night, I had a FREE night, {something I am trying to implement at least once a week}, and decided to thumb through Netflix. I love documentaries and happened across P!nk’s The Truth About Love Tour concert.

The show is dynamic and whimsical and crazy electric. She kicks off the concert in the stands WITH the people, acting like a nervous fellow fan in the crowd, and then emerges on stage bungeeing from the rafters. Her entire first song is performed upside down.

Why am I telling you this? 

Because P!nk is doing the ONE thing every single amazing stand-out entrepreneur, performer, author, actor, rock star, passionate human being does…

Unabashedly OWNING her message.

She’s doing what her heart tells her to. She’s feeling her way through the stories she tells on stage and giving the audience every ounce of passion her body can possibly generate.

She’s rocking out like a bad ass and all the while, maintaining the Brand story we’ve come to know and love about her.

P!nk is a successful entertainer because she’s bold and brave enough to bear her ROCKIN’ (post-baby) midriff, her mohawk, her sassy, sexy, raspy voice and artistic vision all over that stage.

She is completely and utterly herself in the presence of thousands.

And guess what? You can do the same thing. Maybe you're not going to shave your head in to a mohawk or bungee jump from the inside of an arena...but...

Your Brand story is what you say it is.

If you’re a writer, you must write. If you are a dance, you must dance.

There are no exceptions to this rule. You will continually face conflict and frustration in the pursuit of happiness if you try to fit yourself in to an alternate box from the one you were called to rock.

Pursuing the thing you HALF love will result in HALF fulfillment.

Tell me.

What makes you want to fly around a room and hang from the ceiling while singing at the top of your lungs? What makes your heart flutter? What takes your breath away?

What makes you want to pull an all-nighter?

Whatever it is…do that thing…go for it…without hesitation, without fear…

Time is non-renewable.

Choose Your Passion.
