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!!

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.

A Reminder

Artist   A Reminder is by Ben Franklin.

“Hide not your talents, they for use were made.”

To Dream

My World   To dream, to live, to move forward, to be; oh what marvelous creatures we humans be.

 The key word is “be.”  For “to be” is to dream illustrious dreams filled with all the good we can imagine, to soar into the heights of our imaginings, to dream a new reality, new life, a new and more prosperous way of living and expressing, let us not let our dreams be as vapors that dissipate into nothingness but allow them to take form and substance in our life experience.

It is from dreams we become inspired to be more, to create, to experience greater good in all areas of our life.  Dreams are the impetus to moving forward with greater success in expressing life.  Shakespeare wrote, paraphrasing, “To sleep, perchance to dream.”   Let us awaken and take our dream of better living into our hearts and minds and decide to set our goal, to make the dream reality.  You are capable of doing this, making your dream a reality.  To do so is to believe in your dream and yourself, but more than that you must know it as a real possibility for you here and now.  No one else can do this for you.  No one can prod you along…you are the only one who can and who has the inner power, creativity and strength to bring your dream into reality.  Others may inspire us with their stories and how they became more successful in life. These stories may motivate us, may cause us to consider a new direction to accomplish our goal or change our point of focus and create a deeper awareness within ourselves of how to achieve our goals.

Life is filled with opportunities.  It up to each of us to take advantage of these opportunities when they arise in the course of our daily life, Carpe Diem, seize the day and the opportunities.  There are times we create the opportunities.  Life will forever honor us at our own taking So, today, know that your dreams can come true, that within you is; the power, talent and ability to attain a life of greater well-being and success.

Your life is one of success and well-being,
