AHEAD OF THE CURVE.
By Daniel Fessler
When you see the big picture of how the world operates and what it takes to make improvements, you need to ask yourself many difficult questions. I found myself at that crossroads many years ago. Looking at my opportunities, I realized I was the one holding myself back. I was so focused on what wasn’t going well that I failed to address the reason.
The truth is... I was the problem. The concept is learned helplessness: focusing on the things you can’t change, like where you grew up, instead of focusing on the things you can change, like accountability, character, and effort. The good news is if I was the problem then I am also the solution. This, and many other concepts, I learned are characteristics of wealthy people. I realized if I wanted to make a difference, I had to implement the best business practices of successful people in my life. That is why at Young Artist Society (YAS) our first focus was on the culture of our organization. We wanted success but most importantly to sustain it over time.
Young Artist Society is ahead of the curve. We realize all people are powerful. We set our sights on how to capture their attention quickly and develop a mentoring relationship. The program meets people exactly where they are so we can guide them into the future with techniques proven to create success. We start with music production; a world full of creativity, intrigue, glamor, autonomy, and motivation to figure it out. When the thought of a career in music starts to form, limitless opportunities as an artist, producer, engineer, or videographer open up before them. That place is a wonderful introduction to countless discussions of how to make those dreams a reality. Talks about the habits of highly effective people, characteristics of millionaires, and rules effective entrepreneurs play by in the marketplace culminate with the understanding of music as a product. It is a testament that they can become successful by focusing on serving people well.
I know it’s a lot to digest, but often disrupters are. Innovation that disrupts the current marketplace and redirects resources to new techniques are often hard to start. I believe people are powerful. When they understand how they learn and are engaged in what they’re learning, and at the same time being taught practical lessons they can use to improve their lives today - they will flourish. We refuse to be the ceiling for talent but instead are committed to being a springboard to empower. I see a future where world problems get solved because we unlock the potential in powerful people and they embrace the marketplace to serve society and humanity. When you serve people well and solve people’s problems immense wealth is a byproduct.
