I’m A Believer – Joe Firstman

I’m A Believer – Joe Firstman

This week’s Makers of Music Monday blog post is: I’m A Believer – Joe Firstman. Its a cover of a rare Shannon Lawson tune (and we all know how I love rare). But it is the message Joe is singing from the heart here that has really transcended me from my normal Joe Firstman kick to a much more meta analysis.

The Lyrics That Struck Me

“I’m a believer, I might be alone in this world. I’m a believer. Don’t matter what they say. I’m just believing in everything that’s believable. I spend all my time, trying to find something to believe.” I can’t thank Shannon (and Joe) enough for reminding us through the simplicity of song that, “Ya Gotta Believe”. I am not so sure it matter what you believe in as long as it rooted in positivity. One of the things I think I have gotten away from was believing in myself. Not that I was a failure or that I couldn’t do it (whatever “it” was) but that what I was doing was worthy of believing in.


I believe in myself. I have believed in myself at a very young age. It was almost as if I just knew I was going to go on to do big things. Granted it has taken quite some time to see this through to fruition, and it is still a work in progress, but it’s finally happening. Much of the hard work over the last two years is starting to pay off. I can not wait to share this success and belief system with others who are facing similar journeys. It all starts with a little bit of belief. Belief in yourself, belief in your mission, and belief in others. So listen to this tune, and go out and do something worth believing in today.
