In an Instagram post comic sensation and creative genius, Donovan Goliath had few things to get off his chest under the theme ‘Turning Ideas Into Currency’. As NoJokesComedy we are happy to share the story on our site under Editorial Feature.
Donovan had this to say! This is me being as free as I can be. I do a keynote talk titled ‘Turning Ideas Into Currency’ which should actually be titled ‘Who The F**K is Donovan Goliath?’ In this talk I reveal a lot about myself and many sides that people don’t know about. It’s a story of my life, my inspirations and my contribution to the world. The most important thing about this talk is that it allows me to expose a real, vulnerable side of me.
I often get caught up in this industry where I fabricate and put out what I think people want to see. I became so focused on being good or “what they think of me” that everything I put out feels half assed and mediocre. I’d always feel a void inside of me. Like I wasn’t expressing my true self. I’ve made it a mission now to put out what I feel is right and to expose and open myself up a little bit more. I’m a multipotentialite (this word exists thanks to @emiliewapnick Go check out her Ted Talk by the way ) which means I do many things.
I write, paint, draw, design, do comedy, act, do impressions and whatever I’m gonna be interested in tomorrow. Society makes you believe that you must only excel and focus on one thing. Rubbish! If you’re good at many things just do them. Allow yourself to breathe and be free. There’s no template in life, you’re in the driving seat, just do you and do the shit that makes your chest open up and gives you that weird feeling in your stomach. Just. Do. You!
