If you aren’t willing to work for it. Don’t complain about not having it.

If you aren’t willing to work for it. Don’t complain about not having it.

Would it be safe to say that you have worked hard to achieve the most valuable things in your life?

There are so many goals that we set for ourselves over the course of a lifetime…

Many are readily achieved, but some of them require significant work and diligence in order to manifest.

There are a lot of people who expect that life is a giant handout, and depending upon what their social status was, and depending upon their parental upbringing, people get very accustomed to believing that things will always be the way they always have been.

But if there is one clear truth, it is that life is dynamic, ever-changing and continuously providing more challenges to give us cause and opportunity to mature, and to rise to the occasion.

If we are cognizant of the resources that we deploy within, in order that we might achieve whatever it is specifically that we are setting out to achieve, we are that much more aware of how hard we have worked to make some of the most magnificent things in our lives, materialize.

In many cases, this requires facing fears, that we may or may not be aware that we have. In the course of facing those fears, we allow ourselves an opportunity to mature and get stronger as a direct result of recognizing our fears for what they are, and for being willing, and desirous to not accept them as an absolute in our world.

Once we take on the bigger challenges, a lot of the smaller ones reduce considerably in scope, as a direct result.

Goals are truly worth working for. Pick one for yourself and watch where your passion for achieving it will take you.

Happy Wednesday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
