Russell-Simmons-Joins-My-Rising-Tide-Campaign #RussellSimmons #MyRisingTideDuring a recent interview to promote his new partnership with the ‘My Rising Tide‘ campaign, mogul Russell Simmons reveals how following your life’s passion can lead to personal success.

On lessons that he wants to give to young people:

Adults are all wrapped up in the world. What’s on the outside is taking people away from the truth that’s in the inside. Young people, you teach them to meditate. They meditate deeper, quicker than adults. In a world with fast-paced stuff going on, people believing that stuff’s more important than what’s on the inside, the more they will become separated from the truth. They’re more likely to think that everything on the outside is more valuable. I try to teach them that they already have what they need and everything else is just a result of knowledge.”

On how to know if the passion you invest in will yield a return:

“It’s a little bit of instinct. You have to have a belief system of what you’re looking for. Then after that, you gotta have a little faith. You process what you see. You think somebody’s talented, you like their drive, whatever it is they have, then you can invest in them. Handle it the way you go about life in general. You have to act on what you believe.”

On social media’s role in the ability to follow your passion:

Everybody has a chance to grow. There is no excuse. We have the Internet, so if you want to be a doctor to study medicine, how do you do that? Then go to the library. Want to be a lawyer and study law? How do I do that? Go to the library! Now I say if you want to do anything, the entire world is at your fingertips.”
