Even if you are not a YouTube surfer, you have probably heard of Casey Neistat. One of his biggest videos is his motivational video for all creators. Be inspired, be encouraged to keep creating.
The video is linked below, and I want to echo his words here:
Keep your head down. Follow the rules. Do as you’re told. Play it safe. Wait your turn. Ask permission. Learn to compromise. This is terrible advice…
When you’re a Creator you don’t need someone in your ear telling you: what you can and can’t do, what you can and can’t say.
They call us: Gamers, Influencers, Internet Famous, but we know something they don’t…
You can start a blog, or a makeup channel, or travel around the world with a gigantic piano playing it in beautiful places for interested people.
When you’re a Creator, all you need is your phone, an internet connection, and a good idea.
A story you want to share, something you need to say, and then the rest is history.
Now in the spirit of doing what you can’t, be warned this video has a few bits of language that you don’t want your four-year-old repeating or your mother to hear you saying… and be inspired to do something everyone says you can’t.
