The BEST advice from the world's GREATEST musicians.
Rock stars have always been people that others look up to, young and old alike. Musicians such as Freddie Mercury, Bob Dylan, and Kurt Cobain have been characterized as "legendary" individuals because of their fast and glamorous lifestyles, musical talent, and open-minded ways of living.
Beyond just their music, however, these talented individuals have been known to spit (or SCREAM) the truth without giving any regard to what others might think of them.
Legendary musicians can teach us more than just how to be better at playing the electric guitar or how to write songs. These people exist to bring eye-opening thoughts, passions and realities to the world and those in it.
Great musicians can teach us SO much about the world that so many of us don't care to notice; how to love, how to live life in the moment, how to be the best you can be, how to TRULY be free and in love and out of love and obsessed with love. They show us that being brave and confident is vital and to always believe in ourselves and the people around us. They teach us to embrace our emotions and wear them on our sleeves.
Like them, you too can learn how to apply these mentalities to your own life, making it the most bad-ass, rockin' life on the planet. Because, really, this is the only life you've got.
You should always be looking for ways to better yourself — whether that means trying something new or going out of your way to make a difference in the world — and most of all, you should ALWAYS be enjoying your life to the very fullest, every single day.
If these legendary musicians teach you at least one thing about life, let it be that ANYTHING is possible and that you are the only one that can make things happen.
Not everyone will like your way of thinking or what you have to say, but one thing is for sure: inspiration and impact can come from anywhere; you can make a difference all on your own.
