PEOPLE

By: Jay

“People,” my friend said,  “I don’t understand them.”  Continuing he said,  “Here I am having a modicum of success and all of a sudden all those who I offered to help or work with who didn’t want anything to do with me are now knocking on my door.  If I wasn’t good enough for them then, why am I now the one to know?”  This really was hard for him.  Over the years he has offered his talents for free and given his ideas freely to help others out of the goodness of his heart, with no expectation of return.  Some individuals he offered his talents and ideas to, wrote him off as, well, a “unique individual.”  Granted he is different from the average individual, but his heart is big and he did what he did out of compassion hoping that it would inspire them to move forward and if he was included in the moving forward, fine.

Now, as he is moving up the ladder of success these same people are seeking him out for his help and ideas.  So, he asked, “When I was not as successful and offered you help and ideas why did you turn me down and write me off as an oddball?  I have not heard from you in a long time.”  Ah, the judgement of others who are creatively different.  Life is funny that way.  Those who are “different” are often written off until they become successful and then, wham, everybody wants to know them.

There are a selected few he has decided to help who were sincere and honest in their response to his questions.  Others just hung their heads and gave a so-so,  mostly insincere, apology.

As he moves up the ladder of success he is mentoring others and providing them with information on moving forward to greater success in their field of work.

Each of us are uniquely different, each of us have our own unique talents and abilities that can carry forward to greater success in living life.

Next time you see a guy in a pork pie hat, plaid shirt, bow tie, and plaid pants, wearing some unique looking footwear, it may be to your advantage and his to say, “Hi.”  We are always in the right place at the right time meeting the right people, a chance meeting that can be of mutual benefit to you both.  Follow your intuition and you’ll be amazed who you meet on this journey of life.

I’m different and glad to be so.  How about you?

A Friend

A Friend

By: Jay

Director's Chair  I have been talking with a friend of mine who has resurrected their acting career and union membership after a very long hiatus from the industry and is looking for representation, a talent agent.

They are very good, have a fantastic acting coach and are brushing up on film and television acting techniques.

Now about the comments they are receiving from different people in the industry, they are not always positive.

So, how are they dealing with all these comments?  First and foremost my friend has had many obstacles to overcome and is not of the mind to accept any negatives after all they have been through.  They are affirming throughout the day that they are “drawn to the right talent agent at the right time and the right talent agent is drawn to them at the right time,”  right roles, etc.,  always affirming the positive and visualizing their career taking off and being a full time, award winning, well paid actor.  Believing in ourselves, our talent and ability is a key to moving ahead in any life/career choice we make.    

Each of us has had to overcome obstacles in our life/careers and it is about being positive in moving forward that has carried us to our goals.  We affirm the positives throughout the day, we take time to meditate, sit quietly and visualize the completion of our goals and see ourselves enjoying and reaping the benefits of these goals.  But most of all, we are thankful for having now achieved our goals, even though they may not be in sight.  Life is what we make it and what we proclaim it to be in our thoughts and words.

All of us have encountered people in our field of work who like to spew negatives about how hard or difficult it is or how long it will take to advance, etc.  It is only as hard or difficult as we choose to make it.

Treat yourself well and take time to do the inner work and watch it appear in the outer world, cause and effect.

Shakespeare wrote,

“All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players;

They have their exits and their entrances,

And one man in his time plays many parts…”

Perhaps it is time to rewrite the current script and create a more successful version of the character you are now portraying on the stage of life.

The reviews are in and the critics are raving about your success!!

Thoughts & Words

Mug   Morning All,

Today while I was having coffee at one of favorite places met up with a gentleman I know and shared ideas, like we usually do.

Today’s topic was belief and the power of thoughts, words and visualization.  As we are from different philosophical backgrounds we share many of the same positive ideas but use different verbage to describe the same ideas/beliefs.

We share the belief that there is power in our thoughts and the spoken word and when accompanied by visualization they become more powerful.  Our thoughts produce action in the invisible world of causation, be we aware of it or not, as do our spoken words…thus we are always setting up an invisible cause for a visible effect.  The old adage of “be careful what you wish for” also extends to our thoughts and words.  Do we really want what we are thinking or saying?  Yes, we can say, “keep a guard at the doorway of our thoughts” and “engage brain before speaking”…but, as we all know, that is not always the case.  Ah, the joy of the not so wonderful learning experience.

If you and I wish to change the direction, course, our life is on we should be aware, as much as possible, of what we are promoting for our life in our silent self-talk, what we dwell on in our mind, what we say about the world, others, ourselves and most of all, how we see our life moving forward.  Life will always take us at our own valuation, our self-image.  In order to be more, we need to change those thoughts and ideas that are creating unhappy experiences of lack and limitation in our life.  It is up to us to change the course and begin to eradicate those thoughts, beliefs and words, the adjectives, we use concerning our life.

Focus on the positive, see a bright and happy tomorrow in your mind, experience it and claim it as yours here and now. Visualize that bright future and let it bring a smile to your face and a beacon of light into your mind disappating that which is no longer needed nor wanted.

Having experienced some unique life changing and altering events, as have many others, one must persevere and move forward in a positive manner no matter what the odds.  Was it an overnight change?  No, it was gradual and took time for me to rise and shine but if a step backward occured it was okay and learning from it moved forward again and again.

Life is what we make it, so let yours be WONDERFUL AND WONDER-FILLED.
