If I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I’ve learned so far in life, these are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

Like pursuing a career in the arts, building a small business is both incredibly rewarding and utterly terrifying. There are no next pay checks, severance packages, or safety nets for those of us who choose to go at it in the world of art or entrepreneurship. Everything is uncertain.

At the end of the day, I wouldn’t trade this uncertainty for anything—the lessons I’ve picked up coping with it have helped me become a more peaceful and adaptable person in every sphere of my life. Whether you are working on an artist commune, on Wall Street, or anywhere in between, these tips can help you enrich your life and improve your performance where it counts.

First, live in peace with what you cannot change. I learned early on in my career that, according to some people, jewellery is not essential for life. Who knew! What this means is that when the economy stinks (and it certainly has had its low points over the last few decades!), our business suffers badly.

I used to go into a total panic every time the wave of a recession would affect us. I would do everything I could to turn the tide and perk things up again. Turns out one lone designer can’t fix the economy.

Over time, I’ve learned to ride the wave, rather than fighting it. Rolling with the punches—it’s amazing how much more you can do and how much happier you can be when you adapt rather than combat. Sure, slow business is a drag. At the end of the day, though, the economy goes up and the economy goes down–and so does life.

Instead of freaking out about something I can’t change, I’ve learned to use slower periods as times for revaluating, readjusting, and preparing to have the best ready for when things pick up again.

On that note, you have to keep reinventing yourself. In business and in art, I think that this is fairly clear. You won’t get anywhere if you don’t innovate. But what about in life? I think that reinvention is highly underrated. Reinvention isn’t about throwing everything away and starting from scratch. Reinvention is about constantly changing your approach to all aspects of your life so that when the time comes to sit down and take stock, you realize you’ve grown noticeably and significantly.

You have to change your approach constantly to keep making room for improvement! It keeps life fresh and gives you a chance to think critically about what parts of your life and your career are working and what parts can be improved.

Finally, embrace your successes. Be proud of your successes. Own up to your successes. Learn from your successes. But then go back and do the same for your failures. They are so important in helping you grow and flourish, in showing you the path to the life you want, and in having a few great stories to pass along to the kids.

For every smash hit success I’ve had, I had several that fell flat. At the end of the day, eliminating what didn’t work helped me find who I was. So, do not be embarrassed of failure. Do not hide it. Do not blow it out or proportion. Or minimize it, either. We all experience it. We all learn from it. At the end of the day, it makes us who we are.

If I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I’ve learned so far in life, these are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

Only the strong survive, the weak will fold. Life isn’t always easy. Being strong and courageous is doing what others are afraid to do. Don’t be afraid to pave your own way.

Take chances and take them frequently. Taking chances and risks will spark an undeniable curiosity that has to be quenched.

You can’t fear failure. Embrace it. Accept the fact that failure is possible and everyone, at some point in their life, fails at something. The key is to learn from your mistakes and grow. Always move forward.

P.U.S.H.! Pray until something happens.

Surround yourself with successful people. Even if your definition of success differs, you’ll find yourself associating with other goal-oriented people.

The Law of Attraction is REAL. What you put out into the Universe, you will get back. The Law of Attraction is about focusing on the things/outcome you want and not the things/outcome you don’t want. You are in control. You attract what you put out. Say you jump out of bed and stomp your toe. Some will say that’s a start to a bad day. It’s not.

Never put out in the Universe you’re having a bad day. We don’t have bad days… we have moments within our days that can change instantly by the vibrations/positive thoughts you send out to the world.

Always be a giver and give wholeheartedly. Even when you think you don’t have, still give. You’ll always reap what you sow, whether it’s money, time, knowledge, love, etc. That is the first lesson in receiving.

Balance is essential. Take time out for you. If you don’t take the time to get your mind together, your focus will suffer. The day-to-day of life can become overwhelming and can cause you to become easily frustrated. Exercise and eat a well-balanced diet.

Have an amazing support structure. Your wife, husband, mom, dad, best friend, whoever is there when you need to be rejuvenated. When times get hard, your support structure will definitely give you that extra boost of confidence you need.

Be dedicated. You have to be prepared to give 110%. Be dedicated to reaching and exceeding your goals. Sometimes you’ll have to go beyond the call of duty.

Have an attitude of gratitude. Be grateful for what you have, the experiences you’ve gone through and all things placed in your life. They’ve all made you who you are. Everyone has a story, so don’t take anything for granted and appreciate the small things.

Never give up! Even when you feel like you can’t take another step or fight another battle, don’t give up and stick to it.

Be consistent at consistency and always be a student. Be open to the world by learning from others who are smarter than you. Self-educate and learn something new daily.

Invest in yourself and know your worth. How do you expect others to invest in you when you don’t want to invest in yourself?

Have passion. Find out what in your life gives you an indescribable feeling of joy and do it often. Own it.

Don’t overthink things and go with the flow. When you overthink you can create problems and issues that weren’t there initially.

The Universe knows the quickest route to your success. Trust it. Have faith. Ask. Believe. Receive. Darryl Easterling
