SO MUCH PRESSURE IN THE AIR
‘There are so many of us doing standup comedy’
‘Do I stand a chance?’
The Voices in your head are always telling you the negative parts.
It never tells you how you have improved in your short craft in a very short while.
You think so much about what others are doing.
You think your fellow colleagues are doing better than you because they post more pictures and gigs than you.
We all suffer from these things.
Many of us are in these same WhatsApp Group.
But, one thing you must know is…
THERE ARE SO MANY STANDUP COMEDIANS IN EXISTENCE, BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE ‘YOU’
These thoughts makes us insecure, scared, and keeps us stagnant.
Today, you must make that decision to tell that joke.
Today, you must make that decision to do that event.
Today, you must make that decision to be you.
Take the driver seat of everything that concerns you and your craft.
Everyone has one or two things to say about you and your comedy career.
How you respond to the positive and negative feedbacks will go a long way to shape your career.
It gets difficult to be a standup comedian in these parts everyday but you don’t have to relent anyway.
Take charge because it is a life journey and not a sprint.
The world needs to hear your own stories.
Don’t try to be someone else.
And shine bright.
