Singer. Songwriter. Dancer. Actor. Model. Entrepreneur. Philanthropist. These are just a few of the words that can be used to describe the legendary performer Mya. Celebrating twenty-five years in the entertainment industry, Mya is an incredibly successful person who took a moment to chat with Hidden Beats, and shared some of successes, struggles, and an amazing amount of tips and advice on how to live your best life, be successful, as well as how to navigate the entertainment industry.
Respect For The Basics… And Yourself
Even today, with all of her success and a busy schedule, Mya recognizes and understand the importance of staying grounded. “Each waking day, I start with gratitude, just for existence, and life, and breath in my body… We’re here. We’re breathing. We have life in our bodies and another day to look forward to.” Recognizing the pull of technology, Mya knows how easy it is to wake up “and go straight to the cell phone, and the to-do list, and be stressed out and not want to get out of bed.” Doing your best to cut out the excess noise and distractions. One of Mya’s goals to empower others is to encourage people to “Unlearn, unplug, and start at the basics.” To avoid the distractions of ‘What do you want to be? What are you wearing? WHO are you wearing?’, and instead to govern our own lives, influenced by nature, and recognize that we are all a work in progress.
