If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.


What would be the most important thing for you to change, if you were given a chance to fly by your own standards?

Every detail in our world adds another variable to our overall life structure. Much of it is of immeasurable value. Many of the choices that we make add tremendous substance to our lives, but they also create their own specific constraints. Every material item that you purchase, every relationship that you attract, every pet that you bring into your world, the children, and loved ones that you draw towards you, and all of your business and personal relationships, create their own unique attachments.

In the course of trying to pursue the life that we are feeling most attracted to living, we are often faced with having to choose between some of these constraints that we have attracted, and the dream that we are pursuing. 

It does not always make for an easy choice. 

If we start by understanding that the majority of the constraints that we have brought into our world are voluntary, we are that much more capable of evaluating each of them as relates to how or whether we will be able to manifest our single greatest dream. 

This is not to say that a person must reject things of value in their world in order to accomplish whatever their particular pursuit is. Instead, it shines a light specifically on whether our overall objectives are achievable, given the permutations of these elements that we have accumulated over the course of our life to date. 

If we are honest with ourselves, eventually, we must recognize how or why some of these variables are precluding us from getting to where we wish to be. This might lead to some hard choices. But it is only through the determination and resolution of a hard choice that we are ultimately capable of accelerating into the future we are seeking. 

When you are fully determined to fly, everything that holds you back must be contemplated and resolved to your individual satisfaction. 

It is not always an easy choice, but taking flight is a huge value in life that should never be overlooked or miscalculated. 

Happy Tuesday!

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!
