Let’s keep it going, cowboy!

What is the one thing that makes most of us quit?  It’s my belief that we often listen to people around us who we value their options, but sometimes these same people can be the one’s that actually crush our dreams and goals.   How do they know if you can do something?  Here is the answer for you; they don’t.   I would say that the only person that can honestly answer that question is you.   Sure it’s a hard question to ask yourself in front of the mirror, but one that will only help you in the long run.   If we don’t have the drive, then we might as well pack it up and call it quits.  If we don’t see the future in ourselves, who is going to see if for us?

The next thing that I would recommend is to avoid the No-Doers.  They will only drag you down into their world in the hopes that you will not move up the latter in front of them.  They will most likely be the one that is telling you can’t do this or you will never do that, but I can tell you they will be your biggest fans when you do carry out it, and will want to be on your team win you to get the awards.

I once had someone tell me that I was crazy for making out goals of making a feature film a few years ago.  I was told that I need to work on things that were more obtainable and in my safe range.   With in four months, The Last Passport was showing on the big screen in Minneapolis at the Solstice Film Festival, where it walked off with Best Actor and Best Director awards.   The key is too keep moving forward on all aspects, if you truly believe in the project or goal.

You can only fail, if you don’t try, so dust off that dirt and get back up on that bike, and make sure to slow down when you go by them, so they will understand that they accomplish great things when they get up off the couch.

Keep Clicking!
