Industry Baby" is Lil Naz X's newest song release that has quickly risen to top the music charts around the globe. In a recent interview with Genius, Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow sat down to discuss the song and it's meaning.
The revealed that the song's main message was to prove to the music industry that they weren't "flukes". Meaning they weren't one-hit wonders, that they were talented artisist who were here to continue to evolve and change the music industry and become one of the best artists of the era.
The artists talk a-lot about how through handwork, and believing in themselves, they knew that they were going to have a life of success.
Listening to them, I felt inspired. I, as I'm sure many others do as well, struggle alot with beleiving that good things can happen to me. And I wanted to share what I learned from Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow, to help you all learn and discover a way in which you can beleive in yourslef more.
We all have experienced this, maybe some more than others. Personally this has been affecting me more so since the start of Junior year. It's become hard to believe that life can actually be good. That I can have everything I ever dreamed of, feel good about myself, and have real confidence to put myself out there.
Is there something wrong with me?
Most times I can't help but believe that there's something wrong with me. That I'm too introverted, or lazy, or unattractive, and that's why I can't seem to believe in myself and believe that good things are to come.
We all wish we were someone else.
I find myself wishing that I could be so and so, because they have their life together. They're successful, beautiful, handsome, fun BECAUSE they are who they are.
Why can't I be like them?
Why can't I look like her?
Act like him?
Talk like her?
Removing that mentality
But I'm not them. And at the end of the day, learning to believe in yourself is not a problem that can be fixed if you change into someone else. Yes I may be introverted, but that doesn't mean it's a bad quality about me.
Yes I may at times decide to watch a movie rather than study for a test, but that doesn't mean I'm lazy. And yes I may tell myself a hundred times that I'm unattractive but guess what I also tell myself 1,000 times that I'm beautiful.
To belive that good things can happen to you is apart of starting to see that you control your life and your outcome of it.
If you beleive you can, you have the power to make any good thing happen to you.
