Bob Marley Success

Inner Keys to Success:

  • STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN: Even though music was his passion, it was the change he wanted to see in his homeland which fueled him to deliver such powerful messages. People related to his emotions and feelings of peace and freedom. He didn’t only help change the face of Jamaica, but he spread his movement to the masses of the entire world. Feeling like a misfit for being half white/black made him realize that he wanted people to treat each other with respect and dignity. And being shot with a furry of bullets by a politically motivated group couldn’t stop him, as literally 2 days after, he sang at the Smile For Jamaica concert singing “If puss and dog can get together, why can’t we love one another”.
  • HAVE A WELL DEFINED SENSE OF PURPOSE: Bob Marley was absolutely sure of the direction he wanted to go in and nothing could or would deter him from pursuing it. He was inspired by the likes of Ray Charles and Elvis Presley where he would listen to various US music through a jukebox and the radio. Even if others tried to persuade or change his vision, he would stay focused on trying to change the world through reggae music. Marley had a much defined purpose. Finally when he rose to stardom, he got the privilege to give back, which was a very purposeful goal he had from the get go. Having grown up in poverty and times of struggle, he knew how difficult it was to get by. He would buy houses for friends and supported many of the poor in Jamaica. Marley became extremely generous with his money.
  • USE ADVERSITY AS MOTIVATION TO WORK HARDER: He didn’t allow his past to define him, nor affect him in any way that would keep him from succeeding. In fact, he was famous for working hours and hours at a time, going from a dead-end job straight to rehearsing. His perspective on his problems was what compelled him to achieve great success by using his negative surrounding as motivation and drive to help change the world. This type of attitude has resulted in him being one of the most influential and listened to musicians of all time, and his positive perspectives on peace and how to treat one another has made a world of a difference on this planet. “Love the life you live. Live the life you love.”
