As human beings, our greatness lies in being able to remake ourselves.

Remaking one’s self is a lifelong task. Chapters open and close, in many cases without notice. One day you’ll look back and think about something you were doing all the time… like playing in the sandbox or swinging on a swing or studying for finals. And you will realize that those chapters are probably closed.

Other times, you will find yourself at the tail end of a personal or professional chapter and you will recognize that once again you are at a crossroad. It is easy to keep one’s head down and not pay attention to the part you have played in being at that crossroad.

I think that in the quotation by Gandhi above, remaking oneself is the big experience in life. It is the constant attention to potential growth that each of us plays in our daily regimen. It is the reason why one would look at oneself while standing at the crossroad and really ask, “what part did I play in making this happen?” Is it possible for me to evolve and grow into something more suited for success?

There are so many metaphors about how heat and pressure and friction convert coal into diamonds. I think that life is continually applying those same pressures to each of us and therefore it is building us into something that is stronger and even more valuable than what we were prior.

I don’t believe that the path is easy, in fact it’s outright difficult in many circumstances, but if you are awake during the experience, you recognize continual opportunities to level up in your approach to the daily pressures and to accelerate down the road for you to pursue your dreams.

I hope this gorgeous Sunday brings you great joy!🌟🌟🌟

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!
