A week or so ago, a dear friend of mine asked me how we know that we are making the best decisions for ourselves when we make them. My response to her was more philosophical than anything else, but it went like this: ‘We never really know, we just have to trust that the decision we make will turn out to be the best for ourselves. If we see somewhere down the road that the decision we didn’t make had some sort of value, then the one that we did make was still the best, because had we not made it, we would not be able to have seen so or learn.‘
Keep On Running is about that very nature of second guessing the paths you choose to venture off into. It’s about feeling as if you’re in a race that you feel you cannot see the finishing line to. In fact, it’s about being in a race that you don’t even know where the finishing line is, or, if there even is one.
We must learn supreme confidence with our decision making process. At the very least, we must trust our guts with the decisions we have to make. We must trust that whatever decision we solely go with, that in the long run it will be a decision that will teach us, because the moment you stop learning is the moment you should realize that you truly are on the wrong path, and in the wrong race.
Trusting our guts is an entirely different subject the same way being able to make our decisions without outside influences is, but you must learn those fast if you are the kind of individual that keeps finding themselves on wrong roads.
Supreme Confidence on the other hand, is simply the ability to believe that whatever path you take is meant to be, for you. This does not mean that you won’t ever find yourself on a path that you can no longer be on. It just means that if you do, you will take what you have learned along the way, find another road, and never look back at the one you were just on. You won’t have any feelings or paralyzing emotions about it because you have somewhere else you have to be, and another race to finish.
‘What are you running from? What are you running towards? Dude, if running is making you unhappy, you can just stop running”. On the other hand you might think “I must keep running, this is a song about persevering!”. For me, its a song about saying “I know everybody has to run, but I think I’ve been running the wrong race”. — Andy Bull Interview on “Keep On Running“.
Enjoy the catchiness on Andy Bull‘s Keep On Running. It’s a tune undercoated with a powerful moving synth bass, splashed with sprinkles of fantastic melodies, and coated by infectious and playfully choppy hooks. It’s fun, it can be empowering, motivating and most of all captivating in a way that will have you coming back to it whenever you need to.
Always believe that you’re great even before anybody else believes it.” —Jay Z
