Many of non-paid entertainers are always eager to know the secret to success. As if there is some sort of hidden ingredient in a recipe. We spend the little money we have on workshops where casting directors and talent agents tell us that what we are attempting to achieve is virtually impossible. And the only reason us wannabes are even able to sit in the same room at them is because they are being paid to share their professional industry knowledge. We listen intently and take notes hoping these professionals reveal the map for success.Read More
… because I hate myself.
Sometimes when I wake up, I can not think of anything positive. I'm angry or sad and I do not know why. It's going to be "just one of those days." Nothing will go right, my boss is a jerk (he actually is), and I'll probably have to deal with really crappy customers today.

My grandpa smoked cigarettes most of his life. He is nearly 90 years old now. Then you hear about children like eight-year-old Lacey Holsworth, who recently passed away because of a brain tumor.

The left side of your brain is like a calculator. It figures things out. It presents a logical solution thru analyzing data. In other words, your left brain thinks, thinks, thinks, and when you’re ready to go to sleep, it continues thinking. It does not stop thinking, It does not stop analyzing.
The right side of your brain reacts on intuition. It analyzes this same data, but with the consideration of what is important to you. Your right brain is emotional and affected. This is why I cry when I watch superhero movies and why other people cry when they hold their baby for the first time.
In most situations, we rely on our left brain to tell us what actions need to be taken. Other times, what we feel weighs so much heavier than what we know. We become dominated by our emotions.Read More
Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.
The key to not allowing our worry drag us down is to stay focused on now. Focus on the moment you are currently living. Our mind loves to loop our troubles over and over again in our head. Which makes staying focused that much harder.
Living in a big city like New York can be stressful at times, and these are ways in which I was able to overcome anxiety.Read More
Habit 1: Constantly Passive
No initiative is taken in life. Your decisions do not align with being productive. You do not hold yourself accountable for the choices you have made and their ramifications.
Habit 2: Aspire to Nothing
You have not discovered who you are nor can you define significance in any of your personal traits and the result is that you do not have life goals.
