How changing your thoughts can literally change your life ~ (Law of Attraction)
Hey there! My name is Layla, I’m a regular 21-year-old with a passion for music and entertainment all around. After graduating high school, I knew I wanted to be in the entertainment industry, but I had no idea where to start. Until one day I reconnected with an old friend that is a music producer and was willing to teach me the ropes. I remember one story in particular that changed the way I think forever when it comes to self-belief.
My music producer friend Liby V invited me to Akon’s manager’s house! Yes, I got invited to a mansion and it was going to be full of people in the industry. I was super excited and took my chance to go! On my way there I’m thinking “Wow, this is my chance to get my foot in the door”, “I’m finally going to live my dreams” … That is until I stepped foot into the mansion. The very first thing I saw when I walked in was a studio with the door closed and, on the door, there was a piece of paper attached to the door saying, “Songwriters needed for Artist like Arianna Grande, Chris Brown, Akon, etc.,” and at that very minute I felt intimidated. I then walked into where these creative individuals were gathered and they all were introducing themselves and when they finally get to me, they ask “Hey, what do you do?” And I FREAKED OUT and all that came out of my mouth was “I’m with him”. From then on, I felt invisible, I shut myself out because these people around me were all doing something and very talented at it and I thought to myself, I could never be as talented as everyone here, especially with the zero experience I didn’t have. All I had was passion.
One of the people that were there mentioned they were working with a new artist named Kehlani and saying how dope she was and how big she’s going to get. That same week I hit a plateau, when I got back up, I never contacted Liby. Until I was watching MTV and a song came on and I liked it and it said the artist was Kehlani. I was excited that I got to hear about her before I even heard her music on tv but in the back of my head I was like “Damn, I was in the same room with the people that worked with her and here I am at home watching tv and working at Wingstop”
I knew I had to do something different. So, I decided to look into the law of attraction and manifestation and man did that blow my mind. You mean to tell me that by changing my thoughts I could literally live the life I’ve always dreamed of? Slowly but surely it came into effect, hence you’re reading my blog on Hot Noize Magazine.
The mind is our most powerful tool. Doubt is the enemy and that’s what I battled with every day. I started to change my vocabulary from saying I can’t to I can. From that’s impossible to anything is possible. Those words alone changed my everyday life. Then I started to manifest things into my life. All day I would think of working with creative people and making something happen with my life because I’m the only one who has control!
I received a message from an old friend that I kept in contact with through social media. He was working with this Hot Media Streaming company called Hot Noize and shot me a message saying they’re looking for interns. I jumped at it right away and went into the interview thinking about my last experience and changing how I would handle it this time. One of the first questions i was asked was if I had experience and I said it confidently “No, I don’t but I am a hard worker and dedicated to learning the ropes and working my way up” with that alone that got me in! And here I am writing to you not only to share my story but to let you all know anything is possible and you have control over your life to do whatever it takes to be a better you.
It’s not who you are what holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.
~ Love Layla
