Elvis Presley is one of the biggest musicians of all time. He is one of the best-selling artists along with the Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Madonna. With all the success he had, we could not help but think ‘what if he did not follow his dreams as a musician?’
That thought alone is scary because we couldn’t imagine a world without Elvis Presley’s songs.
Elvis Presley Followed his Dreams
The song might have been a bit personal for Elvis. Do you remember the time when he bombed his debut performance at the Opry Stage? Back then, it was s known as the Ryman Auditorium. On his first performance of the song “Blue Moon of Kentucky,” he did not do well to the point where the head of the Opry, Jim Denny, advised him to leave country music and go back to being a truck driver.
The King did not listen to the harsh words said to him and he still followed his dream. Now, he is regarded as one of the best musicians of all time. He could not have achieved this if he listened to his critiques and did not push his dreams through. All it took was courage, hard work, and his God-given talent of course.
The Key to Real Success and Achieving Dreams
We all have a definition and idea of success. While some think that it is having abundant money, others think that success is all about being satisfied with what you have. We constantly seek success without really knowing what is in it. We spend so much time chasing success that we end up wasting half of our lives.
Where do we draw the line? I think it is fair to say that success is very subjective and it varies to different people. Someone can already say that they are successful when they have a family. Some will say that they will only be successful when they buy a house and a car. We should be the ones to establish our own premise of success and not let anyone say otherwise. It is up to us to decide if we are already happy with what we have and that is all that matters.
