What I Like About Justin Bieber As A 29 Yrs Young Male?I am a straight guy, and no, this is not a satire.
I was schooled by this young lad in a huge way as I have been going through my "Who am I? How did I end up where I am?" inner journey. To see a kid who who has such wild success just made me think.
I don't listen to his music. I mean I have heard it, but it's not my cup of tea, but I have been thinking about him so much lately.
Reading his memoir "First Step 2 Forever" really triggered many emotions and memories in myself. Half way through the book I was sobbing as I recalled my own childhood and teenage years. Mine was far from his.
Not that I wanted to be a pop star when I was young. However, I was pretty bad at getting what I wanted--always took the longer-cut, sabotaged my own chances of success through negative attitudes, created self-fulfilling prophecies, wasted time by over-analyzing things...
Justin Bieber, however, is so good at getting what he wants in life. If you know what is the Law of Attraction, or a Christian who is familiar with the prosperity Gospel, then you know what I am talking about.
When he wants something, he is very direct and simple about it. The toddler Justin once murmured to the adults, "I want to be on TV", when he was asked what he wanted to become.
Many of us aren't so smart. We make things complicated. We undervalue ourselves. We live beneath our potential. We criticize a lot. We frown when we see people put themselves out there. We label everyone with many negative labels. We don't allow ourselves to frog leap toward our goals, but procrastinate with excuses and force ourselves to go through guilt trips and doubts if we dare think about our wildest dreams at all. The more we become adults the more it gets worst.
I know a lot of adults don't understand why he is so popular among teenage girls. Me neither. Maybe teenage girls have different types of wiring when it comes to vocal music. Maybe Justin's voice hit on the right frequency that girls in that age range love. But he has conquered the hearts of many young girls. They included your daughters, your dream girls in school, your granddaughters, your girls next doors... Guys, including adult women who don't like him, we have got to at least give him some credits.
For people who hate him, let's just sit down and think. You don't get what you want in life by hating the people who managed to get them. You don't get what you want by criticizing the thing you want. I am talking about young teenage boys who hate Justin and ridicule his teenages girls fans. I could also be talking about jealous parents whose daughters love Justin more than they love them!
My adults readers, it is not too late for us to achieve similar success in our remaining life. Don't say, "I don't compare!" "I don't care!", because I am sure many of you do care. Everybody wants to be celebrated, to be loved, to go to places, to retire early, to have enough money to get what you want...
This 16 years old boy earns more in one year than a lifetime of income for an average person. Think about it.
No it is not luck. Justin was obsessed with his music since he was 3. He knew what he wanted before he could read.
Have some faith. Keep on believing. This is what "Never say Never" is about! ;)
And to his fans: I know you are probably going to love him for life, and he is probably going to make his name in history, but also think about what you can learn from this and apply it in your own life! Justin is a Christian, and he knows that God gives him his success.
