How Can You Be A DJ in your life?

January 11, 2008          Comments (6)

If I could do anything in the World besides what I’m doing I’d be a World famous DJ. Well, I might as well be the best in the World if I’m going to do something.

It’s amazing how music can TOTALLY change your state of mind. At least once per week, I have no desire whatsoever to workout but then I’ll throw on my headphones with some good beats and all of the sudden…bam…I feel like Rocky.

I feel like Mayweather getting ready to defend my title right now. As I write this (It’s 5:33 A.M.), I’m listening to music that makes me want to go for a run and then continue to build my company and then go out and do my two step. It’s hard to describe but the energy music gives me is simply phenomenal.

[If you’re curious, I’m listening to “Time” by Timbaland. I’m slightly obsessed with the first 40 seconds!]

The reason why I’d love to be a DJ (and loved being a DJ in college for my fraternity – yes, that’s me in the yellow) is because I love having an impact on people. It’s the same reason why any great teacher wants to be a teacher.

I love changing people’s perspectives. With the press of a button I could completely change the mood of a party. Literally, within an instant I could change someone’s entire mood. It’s hard to get more instant gratification than that.

It was a form of artistic expression and satisfaction for me. The same reason why I loved being a DJ is the same reason why I love my business. It’s just a slower process of change and evolution. When I write my emails to my clients every morning I strive to write something inspirational that’ll resonate with them throughout the day.

Everyone in this World is in the service business. If you have a boss, you’re job is to make his/her life easier. If you own a business, your job is to make your customers (and employees) happy. Doctors, lawyers, accountants, entrepreneurs, teachers, you name it; all have the power to be a DJ in their own regard.

Why not act as if you’re a World famous DJ with whatever is you choose to do? You have the power to change someone’s mood and perspective no matter what you’re doing. You can either make or break someone’s day.

One day DJ Body Tutor or DJ Gilbert will bring down a house near you. For now, it’s just going to have to be in words.

Can you feel ‘em? Hot Damn!

Off for a run…

  1. Adam, been subscribed to your blog for a while.

    Wanted to let you know that I always look forward to reading your blog entries because they are so original and unique. I love your anecdotes and how you always form them into some sort of entrepreneurial lesson.

    Figured I’d reach out to you on here because I was a dj myself in college during the good old days.

    You have your way with words. Keep writing.
