We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamil Martinez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jamil, what do you attribute your success to?
Intuition has been the most important factor behind every success I’ve accomplished. It is what waves the solution to problems in an almost effortless way. The problem I used to find myself in was that I couldn’t hear my solutions over the panic of worry in my mind. What if I can’t figure this out? How can I live with this problem? Will it get worse? I would constantly replay the worries in my mind to the point where there was no answers, just problems. The solution to tapping into my intuition, I have found, is to have fun. The people who get the highest level in a game are the ones who love the game. They take on the challenges because it is fun. Seeing their character level up, acquiring new missions, getting better gear. It becomes intuitive, pressing the right button at just the right time not because it makes sense but because it just feels right. Pure flow state.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I started creating as a way of expressing the words I didn’t have the courage to say. My biggest challenge making it to this point were my personal problems getting in the way. The turning point was simply making the decision that this is what I wanted which at the time felt like the most difficult decision in my life. This is something you can only really understand if you’ve battled a lack of confidence in yourself. My main takeaway from that initial jump was that “Your dream life will only come at the price of your current one” Over time I’ve been able to make money off of this but I have felt in my heart that I started to drift from that human expression. I’m dedicating the upcoming chapter of life to getting back to the magic of creation while still having abundance in all forms. I can genuinely say I am excited for what’s to come!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The best time ever would involve going to the gym, the beach, groceries at Whole Foods for home cooked meals. I have really enjoyed eating at Mandolin lately and design district is great for walking & talking.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My beautiful mother who raised me in the best way possible regardless of how hard it may have been and for birthing me lol
