Starting over is hard. Starting something new is even harder. But what would life be without these new beginnings?
Hi. My name is Chris Swan and I am the Founder and CEO of Soul Motivation Records. Getting here was quite a journey and I am going to tell you my story over the course of many blog posts. But let's start here...
I love music. Ever since I was a little kid, I have been singing, making songs and entertaining people. It is who I am. Music is what I was made to do. I have never doubted that for one second of my life. Sometimes, however, life takes us in weird directions. Somewhere along the way, music stopped being fun for me. I stopped creating and just gave in to playing other people's music for money. "Hey, at least you get to do what you love?" I would hear people say that all the time. But playing cover songs isn't what I love. I didn't get into music to play Brown Eyed Girl every night. What was I doing with my life?!
After years of playing other people's music and letting it keep me down and depressed, I decided enough was enough. I have to create the music of my soul. I have to share my music with people who need to hear it. I want to make music that inspires and motivates people. I want to make music that helps people who are being held down by their choices in life to see all the greatness that awaits them. All we have to do is decide to change. And that's what I did. I decided to change and...
Soul Motivation Records was born.
I can't tell you how much this one decision has already changed my life. It is not easy to make changes. It is not easy to create a new company. It is not easy to tell everyone you are going to do something that they all tell you is impossible. But it just doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. I know what my soul needs. I know what the world needs. I know what I was created to do on this planet. And no one is going to stop me now.
So here is to new beginnings. Here is to making that decision to change. And here is to finding the motivation of your soul. I believe in you.
