A Time In Life

 By: Jay

There comes a time in life when one must take that dreaded first step to new beginnings.  It begins as a bit of a nudge and grows into a full-blown kick in the shins, should we decide not to listen or understand the meaning of the nudge and the direction it is guiding us to for our greater good in life.

No worthwhile thing in life is without risk, without girding our loins to go after that which we seek..  Yes, sometimes we have to make what we want to happen by creating the means by which our success can begin to take form and lead us to bigger and greater things.  It could mean creating a new business out of our garage or spare room, creating a demo tape or writing a script, producing it and starring in it to have our talents recognized.  It can encompass Inventing a new gadget or way of re-designing an existing product to make it better, etc.

Life is about creativity, about creating something tangible from the invisible ethers of our thought.  Life is about birthing and bringing forth a dream, a desire, to express ourselves in a positive and constructive manner to benefit the world in which we live.

Moving forward necessitates us to take chances, to risk, to initiate the ways and means necessary to achieve our goals in a positive and constructive manner.  Life will always give us hints about what we need to do if we but listen to that still small voice inside us.  We are not without power, talent, creativity and ability to bring forth new ways to our success.  If Life be for us, then, we darn well should be too!  We cannot continue to live in fear of being successful or fear failing at a venture or taking a step or two back so long as we learn along the way, which translates to success.

The knowledge we gain from life, when things don’t go as planned, gives us wisdom in the way we carry on to our goal.  Knowledge and wisdom are our partners in life and allow us to find them in the most unusual and sometimes most ridiculous ways.  Never discount a chance encounter and always listen to that still small voice of intuition when it speaks to you. 

Today, engage life and your creativity to live life anew.  Today is your new beginning; embrace it and rejoice in your new and successful journey in life.

Carpe Diem, Seize The Day, my friends.

Changes & Personal Letter

Pic Of Jay   Hello Friends, 

There are changes coming to this blog, PCA.  Since I am now able to pursue career choices, which are near and dear, January will be last month that there will be daily posts of positive statements and articles.  There will be at least 3 posts per week of positive statements and on occasion articles.

Life is always full of changes and most are unexpected but changes are inevitable and life must go on and goals to reach. 

This blog began in August of 2011 for purely cathartic purposes, to get my mind and creativity active.  The healing process from the full respiratory arrest and coma has taken time and persistence.  But, what I have learned about myself, family, friends, is priceless.  I have found that rebuilding my self-confidence in doing what I love has been an extreme task entailing lots of risks, being able to look at things in a totally different light, and has deepened my understanding of self, others and this world.  Having the support and love of my wife and dear friends to pursue my career choices has been and is immeasurable. 

I am so thankful and appreciative of you, my fellow bloggers and followers, for staying with me through some dark and turbulent times.     

Life is always presenting us with unique pathways to follow, if we dare. 

Words cannot express my thanks for your comments and likes; they have strengthened me and my resolve in moving forward.

Should you decide to publish any of the articles which I have written please notify me and e-mail the name of the publication via the page titled “Contact Jay,” thanks.  In re-blogging or using any of the quotes please give credit to the author.  

Thank you for your support and prayers. 

As I begin my search for both talent and literary agents I know that you are backing me and that means the world to me.

Now for personal thanks to those who gave me opportunities early on.  I am thankful to all the editors/publishers who asked me to be a regular contributing columnist on positive attitudes for their publications and to interview successful local business owners.  I am thankful for being asked to speak to a variety of groups over the years.  I am thankful to our friend Ruth, who gave me the opportunity to be her successor on her television show and to create my own show and format many years ago.  I am thankful for my acting teacher, Jobyna, a wonderful and talented character actress.  I am very thankful to the director who recently cast me for a stage production, with much stage time and dialogue, and for her affirmative comments as to my acting chops (skills).  I am thankful to my first talent agent, Ruth, who backed me 100%.  To our friend Mokihana, a great talent, much Aloha.  Thanks to all of you for you.  

Being thankful, even for the not so good stuff, is an important part of successful living.        

Please stay in touch through the comment section and let me know how you and your goals are coming along.  Your comments will not be published

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this rather long post.  

All my best to you always and in all ways,

Jay

Claim your success!  You deserve it.  Jay
