People are awesome. That’s why it is worth to imposture the great ones. Here we share some facts about life very special person – today Janis Joplin. Why she? Because she’s a good example to give example in:
1. Believieing in the present moment – Don’t invest your time and energy in the future problems. Janis led her life – as she preached – with a contepmt for the future. She impersonate the rhythm, colour, sound and ambience of her times. She had unique ability to change present moment into something magical and special. Some simple question can solve that issue. Just ask yourself – would it be important in 5 hours/weeks/months/years? Is it possible that problem to appear in 5 hours/weeks/months/years?
2. Follow your instinct – the second characteristic feature for flower people, however without it she could not move from the place were she was beginning. In those times a young woman was expected to be nice, neat, polite, finish school and quickly get married. Janis was’t neither nice, nor polite let alone getting married. She stand out in everything. She was fat, favoured, poor, listening to different music, always outside of the group. Archetype story of a child, who had difficult childhood, and then decompress it by art. But, even if times were hard. So Joplin wears jeans jeans. She had got courage to be different. She never doubted what she feels inside. Take an example and wait what the time will bring.
3. She was first woman, who achieved equal position on a stage as her male mates. In 60′ the popular music was dominated by male artist. It was controversial that a woman can also be a rioter. That contributed to her success. After years, she was called as a first white continuator of black blues-women, which did for singing as much as Jimi Hendrix for the guitar. Don’t waste your time. Chose time and place where you can be first in your field.
