There are some important milestones in life that once achieved transform one into a better person. A bachelor will change his philandering ways once he finds the right woman to settle down with. He becomes a family man and focuses on providing for them. This is always so inspiring because it teaches us to value the most important things in life. A family get-together, a corporate function to celebrate the company's achievements, a wedding anniversary, a birthday celebration or an engagement party all make you appreciate the beauty of life in a manner that you did not do before. When you are a DJ, you get the opportunity to play at some of these gigs. So far they have been a real eye-opener for me.
People love great music and wonderful entertainment because that is what makes a party awesome. I try my best to keep the patrons entertained and help them have a good time. In my line of work, I meet so many new people, all with different life experiences and backgrounds. I get to meet people who challenge my thinking and in the process make me view things from a different perspective. You can't succeed in this life when you are close-minded or live in a cocoon. I have come to appreciate the diversity of mankind and had the pleasure of interacting with people from various cultures. I have learnt a lot from the people that I have spent time with during these special occasions.
I get inspired by young people who found love against all odds and eventually took the bold step of walking down the aisle. Whenever I perform at a wedding party, I take the time to ask the newlyweds about their journey and how they knew that they were ready to take that step. The stories I've heard so far have made me believe in loyalty, commitment and speaking your mind to the person that you are in a relationship with. In an era where young people are so skeptical about love and commitment, these events have surely been an inspiration.
Family get-togethers have made me realize the critical value that being in touch with your close relatives plays in your life. I have come to know that the most important things in life do not really have monetary values. It's always so good to see the loving embraces, listen to the hearty laughter and hear good-natured conversations. People waste so much time chasing after things that do not matter and ignore the ones that will stay even when they lose it all. These experiences have surely made me a better person.
Being a DJ has also made it possible for me to meet some wonderful people in life who have transformed my life in a major way. Top executives at corporate functions have given me very good tips on how to grow my brand. They have also been very helpful in giving me referrals and this has seen my business grow. I must say that along the journey, I have met some new friends and created lasting relationships. I have truly grown as an entertainer and become a better version of myself.
