Beware Of Carrot Dangling
The worse thing that can happen in this industry is for someone to waste your time. A lot of times this is done by people with influence, money and perceived power. These are people like attorneys, agents, promoters, label heads and managers that will use carrot dangling to get you to do what they want you to do. Basically carrot dangling is making empty promises. This is done when someone needs you and your skills to accomplish their business tasks but they don't want to tell you the truth so they pimp your belief, goals and dreams to make you think that they have your best interest at heart but they never do. These people will actually make sure that you never get an opportunity that will REALLY help or advance your career. In their minds, if they help you advance too much then they can't use or control you so they keep dangling carrots for you to chase. You have to be focused and grounded enough to recognize when this is happening and be able to just walk away. Now you don't want to cause a scene or create drama but when you know, you don't even have to let them know about it. Just make your future decisions concerning your association with them based on what you know . They will just figure that you were too busy so they will just find someone else to lie too. The thing about this is, it never really stops because you have people like this at every level of the game. So don't get caught up in empty promises. Always make decisions solely based on what it has to offer you. That way you will always benefit from every thing and keep moving forward. Now stop chasing carrots and go get your success.
