It can be daunting to try something new or accept a challenge, even if it’s beneficial for us. It’s much easier to fall back on our old routines that have proven to work in order to maintain a level of security and comfort. But here, Tablo reminds us to take risks and venture into uncharted territory. It’s in these unknown places that we can find what we’ve always been looking for and grow even more as a person.
3. Tell your story
Tablo went through a tremendous amount of hardship that resulted in a lifetime of trauma and pain. He could just refuse to talk about the past and keep all the bad memories locked away forever. But he continues to share his experiences and says in an interview with Rolling Stone “what I’m not going to do is be afraid to tell my own story”. Tablo has always spoken about sharing her story to offer help and comfort to those in need. These words serve as a reminder that we all have a story to tell that could very well change someone’s life.
4. Know what’s important
At the end of an interview with Complex, Tablo was asked to offer some words of wisdom. He came out with this: “I think it’s really important to know what’s important and what’s not.” He reminds us to really take the time to think about the things other people say and recognize what really carries weight. So if it’s not applicable to you as a person, it’s okay to ignore it.
5. Finding Your Passion
Passion can often be romanticized as something that magically appears right in front of us. But Tablo says that is not the case. Upon discovering his passion, he tells us to “look at the things you already like” and “try to look for what you like about them.” Once you discover that, a passion can be born out of that realization. There are many steps involved in pursuing our dreams and discovering our passion is the first step.
6. Be kind to yourself
We can be our own biggest critics and hold ourselves to unbelievably high standards. But Tablo gives us tips on how to be kinder to ourselves. The rapper tells us to get to know each other better and who we really are. Then make an effort to accept everything about ourselves, including our flaws. If we are able to do this daily, being kind to ourselves will be a much more doable task.
