It is very difficult to understand a woman who is pregnant because she has the ability to demand for strange things. She can wake up in the middle night and ask for mango in an apple season. This never means she is out of her mind; the seed in her had changed a lot of things in and around her. In Ghana-West Africa where I come from, women who are pregnant can suddenly develop appetite for certain kinds of food they have never eaten in their entire life. It is very interesting how they eat the food with passion and joy forgetting how they throw out in the past even at the aroma of this same food. It can only take a woman who had been pregnant before to teach the husband that this woman is not demon attacked .
Likewise an individual carrying a seed of greatness, you cannot understand his strange demands. Some times we look foolish to others not because we want to be foolish but for the seed we are carrying. The seed you carrying can make you behave abnormal and only those who have carried such seeds of greatness before can truly understand and appreciate your true state.
I believe every human on earth is carrying a seed of greatness, a divinely unique assignment given by God and long as you are still alive, there will always be the desire to do something significant and be relevant while you are still here. Your desire to live a blessed life, impacting your world with the deposits of God in you is not out of place. It is very legitimate. God never dropped you on earth to eat, finish school, work, sleep, die one day and go to heaven. He placed us here on earth for a purpose. Until you find out why you are here and walk in the seed of greatness deposited in you, the fight for discovery continues. God said concerning Prophet Jeremiah
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations” Jeremiah1:5
This was said about you not about Jeremiah alone and if every good and perfect gift comes from God, then you are a good and perfect gift from God. There are challenges beyond your dreams but God of the dream will guide you and very soon, your seed of greatness shall become a fruitful field

With all the changes that have been going on in the music industry over the past decade, one of the biggest and most lucrative has been the rise of music licensing. It is now very common to hear your favorite song not only on the radio, but on tv shows, commercials, and video games as well. This can only be great news for artists and musicians whose goal is to share their music with as many people as possible. Despite all this, there are still some musicians who feel that licensing your music is similar to “selling out” to corporations. So we’re going to discuss a few of the benefits of having your music licensed.
The number one most important benefit of licensing your music is exposure, exposure, exposure! One of the main reasons people write and record their music is so that others can listen to and enjoy it. Sure, some people may be in it just for the money, but any band or singer who’s played a great show where the audience was really into your music knows that there is no greater feeling of accomplishment. Before the dawn of the digital era, it was very difficult to get your music out to the masses except for the traditional distribution methods like radio and cd stores. Now, you can literally write and record a song on your computer and share it with people all around the world in five minutes. That should be a clear indicator to skeptics that the business has changed and it’s time to get in to the licensing game. Having your music placed on a 30 second iPod commercial today has the potential to jump-start your career in ways never before imagined. Even if it’s just for a small independent film, the people who are watching those movies are the exact kind of people that you will want to expose your music to. And now thanks to the internet and song id apps, anyone can listen to your song, find out who you are, go to your website, join your fan-club, and buy your whole album in a matter of minutes. All of these steps are essential to building a strong foundation of fans, and you’re only helping yourself by exposing your music to the masses
Another benefit of licensing your music is the money! Of course you’re not going to just give away your music to a video game for free; you get paid! And for many struggling musicians, this can be the difference between being able to pay next month’s rent and not. While all placements differ in the amount of money paid (some won’t pay anything at all, but the exposure could be great!) you can usually expect to get anywhere from several hundred to several thousand dollars for a song placement. And for the big films and TV shows, that number can jump up to 20-30 grand. You’re also usually paid up front for your song placement so there’s no long waiting period to get your hard earned money.
Another benefit that is akin to gaining exposure is . If you’re an independent band who is looking to take their career to the next level, securing a manager and publicist are two very important steps. If you’re able to secure several small song placements, it can go a long way in building up your resume and showing potential managers that you are serious about your work, and that other people have noticed it too. And you never know, maybe a potential manager or publicist heard your work through various projects and decides to seek you out. The only thing that’s guaranteed in this business is that there is no single path to success, so you should be doing everything you can to try and succeed. If you put yourself out there enough times, the odds are that someone, somewhere will take an interest in your work. So don’t leave it to chance; get out there and make your music work for you!
