He was a game changer in pop music and influenced countless people in the biz. Tributes poured in from celebs to politicians after his death was announced. On hearing of Prince’s passing Justin Timberlake tweeted: “He’s somewhere within every song I’ve ever written.

He was a huge force in 1980’s music. Prince effortlessly mingled the decade’s most popular trends – synth-pop, modern R & B and New Wave – into a sound all his own.

 But he also left behind some life lessons that we can all learn from. Check out this short video where he talks about identity and being thankful. 

Prince was an amazing innovator. He found different ways to reinvent himself through his music. How are you using your creative energy? Do you feel stuck in the same old boring life? Break out of your rut. Do something new and creative. Maybe it’s time to reinvent YOU.

There’s no doubt Prince was his own person. He didn’t want to be and do what everyone else was doing. He chose to be different and was comfortable with it. Do you know who you are? Are you willing to take a risk to be your own, unique person? Don’t get caught in the trap of trying to be like everyone else. Be who YOU are.

 Prince was also an influencer in pop culture. His legacy will live on through his music and those he inspired. Whose life are you talking into? What kind of effect are you having on others? Consider what kind of legacy YOU will leave behind.
