People love to inspire and be inspired; it’s a great feeling to help someone through a challenging day or chapter in life. On the other hand, it feels just as good to come across someone willing to lend a hand during a challenging time in life.
But what does it mean to be an inspiration to others? Sometimes it’s as simple as sharing a story. World-renowned motivational speaker Tony Robbins explains, “Every person on Earth is influenced by his or her thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. True leaders make skillful use of those “pressure points” to influence others’ behaviors.”
Entrepreneur’s list of leadership guidelines to inspire others includes things like focusing on relationships, leaving ego behind, using high-powered talent, building resilience, and speaking up. Based on such definitions, it’s clear to see how up-and-coming, unique artist CWBY has already become an inspiration to fans across the country.
“My Inspiration Comes From Myself”
Being an inspirational person comes naturally to CWBY, who says that his inspiration comes from himself. He’s spent the last seven years as an entrepreneur trying to build himself a good life and has “been through hell and back.” No matter how down he gets or how many challenges he has to face, he keeps pushing through and meeting the next milestone on his list, which is, according to him, “a great feeling.” It’s a feeling he looks forward to inspiring in others.
Find Inspiration in Life’s Most Challenging Moments
CWBY has an inspiring life story to tell, and he’s no stranger to sharing it. Like many inspirational rags-to-riches figures, he says, “There’s definitely some things in my past I’m not proud of, but those things definitely play a role in the man I’ve become today.”
He lived out of a suitcase and in motels for three years while working 16 to 20 hours a day before becoming a successful entrepreneur and aspiring musician. Now he looks back at how much he has grown and all the “insane obstacles” he’s had to overcome, which inspire the songs he writes. Drawing off of his own experiences, many of his songs have themes of heartbreak, falling in love, “the come-up,” and the downfalls.
Share Your Story
Everyone has a unique story to tell, and it’s impossible to say who will be inspired by it. CWBY’s favorite part of making music is getting to tell his story and write about everything he has been through, both the good and the bad. While he just released his first song in March 2020, he feels humbled by the thousands of people who have messaged him on Instagram appreciating it.
It isn’t just his story that makes him an inspiration, though; his unique sound is just as inspiring. He has taken all the styles of music that speak to him the most and blended them together with his own unique twist. The result is a multi-genre blend of country, rock, hip hop, and R&B in a “love song mixed with a little bit of his personality.”
One of the best ways that a person can inspire others is by sharing their stories. CWBY has a list of ambitious goals for the future, including being successful, staying a good person, helping the less fortunate, and inspiring others. He says, “The idea of having thousands of people singing along to a song I wrote in my kitchen gives me goosebumps.”
The Future Is Looking Bright
CWBY is already set to release a new track on April 30th and has his first album in the works. Once this album is complete, plans to start playing lives shows will follow. With all of these plans, it is easy to see not only why CWBY’s future is not only looking bright, but how he is being seen as one to inspire others through the ambitious goals he has set for himself.
