How to Forge Your own Path to Success



It’s a brave, new world out there.  The way we interact, make money, disperse information, and entertain each other is always evolving. There are pros and cons to that. One of the positives is this: the internet provides all sorts of opportunities to get our name out there. You don’t have to follow your grandmother’s route of being in the same type of 9-5 job for decades.

The sky is the limit. Today’s entrepreneur can create their own jobs in any environment. Even within the entertainment business, different generations and personalities have learned to come together. They make their own kind of mark in the world. These special people realize that they don’t need to limit themselves, or judge others who may not initially follow their same path.


The Piano Guys

These five young Americans have made their name through YouTube, the latest craze in entertainment. Their mix of popular and classical videos receives up to 20 million views. The Piano Guys have 4 million subscribers. They were voted “The Most Up-and-Coming” channel. The group has multiple listings on the Billboard magazine charts. Sony signed them.


Placido Domingo

This Spanish opera singer, born in 1941, is a legend. His performances are more “traditional”. He has recorded over 100 traditional operas. He performs in six different languages. Placido Domingo has entertained at some of the most prestigious opera houses in the world. He has also starred in many movie operas. Oh, by the way, he was one of the “Three Tenors”, along with Luciano Pavarotti and Jose Carreras.

Please watch this 4-minute video of “Silent Night” to see how these two legendary groups work together. One marches to a traditional drum, and the other group follows a more modern beat.




My Conclusion



Jesus’ disciples weren’t all the same, and neither are we. Our jobs, social status, and financial situations may differ. That’s okay. We can all contribute to society even if we can march to our own drummer.


Do you keep your own beat?
