Highlights of Joey Bada’s Best Advice episode
“If you chase two rabbits, you won’t catch one.”
This is an old Russian proverb that is the best advice I’ve ever received. I call myself a multi-hyphenate, but it’s always hard to manage over the years. Once I got that quote as it really shook my reality. We’ve all heard the saying, “Jack of all trades, master of which?” So I just put them together: you’re chasing two rabbits you can’t catch one, and it was so understandable to me at the time. It helped me get my priorities in order. You’re doing three things at once you’re going to do three average, average things. You can be that artist and have all these opportunities like you … but you will be able to ask yourself which of these opportunities is going to best serve my highest self.
Recognition of abundance is absolutely transformative.
As soon as I wake up I say prayer and I make sure. Over time it starts to change your overall mindset. The goal is to be grateful for what you do every day. Once I shifted my focus to my strength and gratitude, I was able to be just a happy being. The thing is we all have lots. And once you can embrace abundance and be grateful for the daily abundance as your life will really open up. Because you’re starting to realize, well, maybe you don’t have the most money but look at all the plants in your house or look at all the family members around you. Like we are all abundant in one way or another. And this is the thing that many people get caught up in the destination type mentality. They can’t be happy until they get it. But you can have plenty at any time so once you start moving your vibrations in that direction I think it works wonders for you, as it did for me.
Understand the power of relationships: You never know who will help you in the long run. You never know who you may be collaborating with or working with in the future. Connecting and reaching out to people is important and essential. There are plenty of resources and resources to be able to contact for help or guidance.
