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

pca logoA Time In Lifepca logo 

 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,

Are You Kitchen Brave? Part 1 of 2

  

Are you kitchen brave?  Are you brave enough to be you in the kitchen of life?  Are you willing to walk into the kitchen of your mind to experiment and create your own unique recipe for success, prosperity and overall well-being?  Are you ready to break some eggs and mix things up? If so, continue reading and get ready to bake up some new exciting recipes for life.

We are always creating through our cooking, our baking, our thoughts and beliefs. Life has given each of us a mind and every moment of every day we have a variety of thoughts that shape our character.  Our thoughts, beliefs and concepts are the batter and dough of our life, we are forever taking the formless and giving it form.  From the mixing bowl of thought to the oven of life to solidify our creation.  We live in the kitchen of life, the kitchen of personal creation.

Creating recipes in the kitchen are about learning from what works in a recipe and what does not.  Some of our creations don’t turn out the way we planned and we have to go back to the recipe and make changes learning what will work to bring forth our desired creation.  Life is about learning what works for us and what does not.  From this learning experience we can enhance our life in prosperous and successful ways.

If we are truly interested in making our lives more fulfilling and more reflective of a robust and prosperous life then we must step into the kitchen of our mind and begin to create and bake a new way of manifesting the life we want, no more sitting at the kitchen table with a glass of ice cold milk waiting for the cookies to be set in front of us. It is time to be proactive and get our hands covered in flour and roll out the dough, ready the oven and get ourselves in gear.  Get your apron ‘cause this is gonna be one heck of a baking session. 

Basic ideas/inspiration can be gained from; books, quotes, perhaps a platitude or two, or positive affirmations and informative articles which can begin to stir the creative juices. But until we decide to do something with these inspiring pieces we will only have the warm fuzzies and nothing more. Time to utilize our inborn talents and abilities and make the life we dream of and desire. The time has arrived to take action for our own self-improvement, which in turn will affect the world around us in positive ways. Time to get into the kitchen and create the cookie of your dreams!

Get out the electric mixer, flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda, the basics of the recipe.  We all have the basics at our finger tips; the challenge is what we are going to use to make it our own unique recipe. Are we going to use ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon extract, almond extract, add nuts or poppy seeds?  The combinations are endless and we can create the recipes we desire and if it is not to our liking we can change it up and make it better.  It is merely a batter of mind, no pun intended.  When we have mixed the ingredients together it becomes a batter or dough, to create a cake, a cupcake, a cookie or a jelly roll, perhaps cinnamon buns, the choice is always ours. What do you feel like today?

Part 2 tomorrow.

Your Infinite Power

   Your Infinite Power to be rich, wealthy, healthy, joyous, happy, prosperous, successful and more is ready and waiting for your recognition of it to bring to you your dreams and desires, transforming them from the vapors of thought and belief, into material form. 

 You are the power and you have the talent and ability to bring forth that which is your desire for better living and more successful living.

Life is what you and I make it.  It is up to each of us to take action in our mind, with our thoughts beliefs, concepts, and determination coupled with enthusiasm, feeling, for objectification of those invisible things into our life. 

 We are only as limited as we believe ourselves to be. 

We are only as limited as we affirm we are, either aloud, in conversation, or with our self-talk. 

The time is now to eradicate limited, constricting, life draining, thought patterns and begin to design new patterns of thought, belief and conceptualization of greater good for ourselves and in our world.  Now is the time to re-energize, to re-invigorate, and re-invent ourselves and our lives for the better.

Expansion is the order of the day and the time is now to do something about it…step by step, little by little, leap by leap, bound by bound.  Action in thought and deed is a necessity if we desire to move from where we are to where we want to be in life.

No-thing is impossible.  All is available to us if we but accept it and open to it entering our lives in the here and now.  We may not see it immediately but we will see it appearing our lives in various forms and at various times.  We must have the belief it is done now and not question or wonder how or when, just a deep abiding belief it is done now.  No longer is it faith in, but the faith of.

It is up to us to make the change, to have the courage to stand up for ourselves to ourselves and begin a new and wonderful adventure and journey into greater well being, prosperity and success, into wealth and all it has to offer us and to share with the world around us. 

We are meant for greatness and are worthy of all the best life has to offer…time to claim it.

Today stake your claim to successful living and begin a new adventure into thinking, believing, conceptualizing, and enjoy the journey.

YOU ARE THE POWER!

Jay
