We had the good fortune of connecting with Mace Toussaint and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mace, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
When I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is thank god and the last thing I do before I got to sleep is thank God and reflect on how I want to grow. That single handed has made me more motivated because instead of focusing on what is not working I start the day thanking God for what I have. When I started doing that every obstacle turned into a resource because I could finally see it’s value. It has really made me a more productive person. That and listening to “I AM” meditations on YouTube and mirror affirmations. Just like you might give your friends and family encourage i believe it’s important to give that same energy to yourself… sooo in the morning I love to start my day giving myself encouragement. That too has helped me a lot.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a photographer mostly and I love it because you get to capture life as is. The world as crazy as it gets, is beautiful and people as crazy as they can be, are unique lights bursting with beauty. I’m really thankful I get to capture all that. I get excited about the personalities I get to capture and like improving as a photographer in general. That’s how I guess I got to where I am out of a desire to improve and I’m still living in that desire. I find that no matter how much fear you have the love for a thing or the desire to grow will always push you past your anxieties. I used to be so worried about my career but now I know if I move in love and not in fear I will always be successful. As far as what I want the world to know about my story is you can come up from anything. It doesn’t matter where you start, as long as you have an idea about where you want to go you will get there.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The best place to hang in the city is where the musicians are. Lol that’s what I’ve learned. If not that… parks obviously.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
God one hundred and ten percent because I am better because of God. I see myself growing, changing and become a person I appreciate and that’s all thanks to God. I’d be nothing without that guidance.
