Promotion is Everything ***

So many people want to be successful in life but a lot of people aren’t motivated enough to go the extra mile and promote themselves. My question to those people “How are we going to find you”. You can’t expect for someone to go out and search for you, because if you do 9x out of 10 you will be out of luck. You ever think about how most of these celebrities get noticed? Take Soulja Boy for example. No one would ever know Soulja boy existed if it wasn’t for his youtoube videos. That’s as real as it gets. He promoted himself through his videos on youtoube. People gained an appreciation for a young dude from Atlanta Georgia because of his drive and to gain the attention of others.

Or how about Dondria; who was noticed off of her youtoube videos. She has videos and videos of her singing her heart out. She gained more viewers, more subscribers and the right person saw her video and now she’s apart of So So Def.

This is what I'm saying. You can’t expect to make it somewhere if your not promoting yourself. Im not saying that if you dont promote yourself you wont make it. But you probably have a better chance of making it at a faster pace if your out there promoting. What about the other percent of people who are indeed promoting however who promote themselves the wrong way. Unfortunately those are the ones who sometimes end up at the end of the track instead of the front. 
My advice to people who are trying to make it is this :
Once you really and truly figure out what it is that you want to do in life; what your truly passionate for; then do it. Ill tell you this…if you’re not passionate about what you’re doing in life; or it really is not of interest to you. “YOU WILL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL” because in my eyes being successful means doing something you love to do, being content and being happy. Everyone has his or her own definition, i'm sure. But The truth of the matter is if you don’t promote yourself; don’t expect people to know who you are. (i'm just saying…)
