What would you do if you reached the VERY top of your industry at 28 years old? How would you feel if everything you thought you wanted to accomplish in your career — from the smallest details to your wildest dreams — became reality?
That’s exactly what happened to my special guest today, and he shared with me that reaching the peak of the music industry was actually the lowest point of his life. He suffered through periods of severe anxiety and depression, and even contemplated taking his own life.
Thankfully, this was a turning point for him. He began to focus ONLY on the things that brought him true happiness, like his friends, family, and creative projects that filled him with joy. Not on the negative comments constantly thrown at him on social media. Today, he’s in a much better place and recently finished publishing a novel and a memoir. Most importantly, he’s happier than he’s ever been!
My guest today is the one-and-only, Logic! You might know him as the award-winning artist whose music has touched millions of people around the world. Now, he likes to consider himself a dedicated father and husband above all else. And I’m so proud of him for that.
If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, or you’re curious about how Logic went from poverty to achieving his dreams, then I know you’ll find value in this episode. Now, without further ado, please help me welcome Logic to The School of Greatness!
Bobby Hall, a.k.a. Logic, is a Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling recording artist, author, actor, streamer, and film producer. In addition to his three number-one albums, ten platinum singles, and billions of streams, Hall’s debut book, Supermarket, made him the first hip-hop artist to have a #1 New York Times bestselling novel.
This was SUCH an inspiring, powerful conversation and I’m already looking forward to getting to know Logic better as a friend and person. You won’t want to miss this one! Please join me for Episode 1,163 of The School of Greatness.
