Kayla Porter Inspirational Interview

Inspirational Interview with Kayla Porter

Inspirational Interview with musician and dancer kayla porterKayla Porter’s dream job is to travel around living off of performing and making music. I asked her a few questions about her journey to that dream. Below are her answers.

What is stopping you from fulfilling your dream career?
During the day I’ll have all these creative ideas, but with everything I have to do in order to just get through each day, I come home exhausted. I am not only physically tired working to pay for food, gas, necessities, but mentally drained going to help a friend in time of need or dedicating all my efforts in school to bring in that 4.0 GPA.

With what I want to do, you can have all the passion and talent in the world and still not become successful. When creating and selling one’s own music, one has to know who and who not to collaborate with, and how to negotiate the contracts or deals, etc.

What motivates you to want to make your dreams come true?
The wave of intense, complete happiness I’ve gotten really loosing myself into a song (whether singing, dancing, whatever) and seeing or hearing the audience enjoying it as well. No experience in the world has given me such a heavenly feeling and it is the one joy in my life that hasn’t abandoned me.

How are you dealing with fear, doubt and worry?
I don’t allow any of that to live in my brain when it comes to dreams. I block out all negative thoughts and reinforce them with positive affirmations explaining how or why my dreams will come true.

What steps are you taking towards reaching your goals?
I am currently taking many classes in the fields of music and dance. I have a part time performing job on the side. I go to as many concerts as my wallet lets me. Recently I bought the essentials needed to record. I collaborated with a music producer over the summer. And, I have accumulated a collection of original songs and seek out opportunities to perform in front of others.

Who or what inspires you to stay motivated?
I inspire myself by believing in myself and my dreams. If I don’t believe in them then how can I you expect others to? I daydream and pictur the possible sounds and sights of when my day comes. I don’t picture failing as a possibility, no matter the chances, and will still hold on to the magical wonder of all the miraculous outcomes branching from my roots of passion.
