Taylor Swift: On Originality, Finding Inspiration, How To Choose A Path, And Not Giving A F**K

Today’s show features advice from American Singer-Songwriter, Taylor Swift. One of the leading artists of our time, Taylor is well-known for narrative songs about her personal life. Her mega-successful records include ’Shake It Off’, ‘Bad Blood’, ‘Blank Space’ and ‘Mean’.

Not to take anything away from her vocals, it is her songwriting abilities that separate her from a pool of extremely talented female artists; her honest, blunt, real, true writing style means her fans are able to relate and connect with her at a level that is arguably only matched, today, by Adele.

She has an immensely impressive stash of rewards—including being named by Rolling Stones in their 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time list, in 2015; she also has ten Grammy’s, five Guinness World Records, one Emmy, and one Brit award. She was named in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, in both 2010 and 2015. In 2017, she was named Time Person Of The Year, as part of the ’Silence Breakers’—a list of people, primarily celebrities, who spoke out against sexual assault and harassment; a list, that included actor Terry Crews, journalist Megyn Kelly, and actress Ashley Judd.

Taylor is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having to her name more than 40 million albums, and over 130 million single downloads. At just 28, she has an estimated net worth of $280 million dollars; and no doubt, there is still plenty more to come. She’s Taylor Swift, and here are 8 soundbites of wisdom, straight from the women herself.

What is the Success Series Podcast?

The success series podcast is all about the secrets, recipes and philosophies of some of the world’s most famous and successful people—be them composers, actors, actresses, entrepreneurs, authors, painters, investors, philosophers, journalists, scientists—you name it. Each episode features one person, and typically, 7-10 separate pieces of advice.
However, these podcasts are not interviews done by us; what we do instead is comb the internet platforms for any recordings and audio clips that already exist, study them, and then separate the wheat from the chaff. These podcasts, are the wheat—or better put, the audio equivalent of your favourite superfood. Not a fan of superfoods? Then consider them audio equivalent of the food item you can’t live without.
