Forget about her music, let's talk about her massive self-improvement transformation.
In the past few years, Billie Eilish has been pretty open about being unhappy and struggling with her mental health.
It was tough seeing her look so depressed in interviews, because I remember feeling the same way at her age.
My teenage years were a troubling time, but in the past 5 years, I've discovered resources that have helped me become happier and healthier. Along the way, I've been collecting the best advice and success strategies for my book for Gen-Z, It's the Depression for Me.
I believe that everyone has the ability to change their life. And in this one interview, Billie Eilish shows how that really is possible.
Vanity Fair has interviewed Billie Eilish for 3 years in a row, asking her the same questions each time. In the video, you can visibly see how much happier she is this year than in past years.
Billie says a lot of the change came from working on herself, prioritizing her own happiness, being grateful, remembering who her true friends are, and becoming more self aware.
Even if you're not a fan of her music, this interview is worth watching. At least skip to 17:50 if you're in a rush.
At this point, 16 year old Billie talks about how everyone in the music industry is "sad as hell." Then, present day Billie rolls her eyes and says how she was young and friends with a lot of sad people. Today, she loves her life and is grateful for what she gets to do.
What Billie said reminded me of this photo Gary Vaynerchuck posted. If you surround yourself with 9 sad people, you'll be the 10th. The company you keep matters.
If you get anything out of Billie Eilish's story, whether you watch the interview or not, I hope it's that life does get better. If you take the time to prioritize your own wellbeing and to work on yourself, you can become happier and healthier.
