2. Beyonce is King
3. Beyonce is King
The LEVEL of WERK put in by King Bey is UNMATCHED. So while the list above is straight FACTS, here's my actual list of 5 takeaways from Bey's Netflix documentary showcasing her Coachella prep.
3. Without passion, it won't work:
Bey handpicked each dancer, band member, background vocalist herself. She pushed them to let their passion push through the choreography. She wanted to see their personalities. Some of us so stuck in routine, but what can we add to these routines to make sure we don't lose US in the process? I'm speaking to myself, honestly...
2. Practice Your Craft. OWN Your Craft.
When Bey said they practiced for approximately 8 months, day in and day out... my jaw DROPPED. I knew a lot of practice went into these shows, and clearly here's our answer as to why she's so perfect. But legit, I'm thinking about this... as a musician practicing is SO important. And when you practice you can hear your improvement, you can FEEL the difference. I'm so inspired by the long hours they've put in. I'm motivated. Pushing myself to give my craft daily practice.
1. You Are Your Own Competition
Tunnel Vision. That's all I saw when I watched Bey's Netflix documentary. I got a peak straight into her tunnel vision. Beyonce has worked SO hard, that she is literally in a lane all by herself. She is her own competition. Watching her put in that work, has taught me so much about myself... and maybe why I haven't been as consistent as I would like. A lot of times I'm worrying about what others will feel... or trying so hard to be different... I should really just be focused on me.
And quite frankly, my tunnel vision gotta make it to Bey's level.
