People with purpose, goals, and visions, have no time for drama. They invest their energy in creativity and focus on living a positive life.

Do you allow drama to play a role in your life?

I think the truth is, we all do.

The bigger question is: how much and for how long does the drama last?

Each of us are working to navigate our way through life with the least amount of frustration and the maximum amount of enjoyment and satisfaction. Yet, all it takes are a few problematic variables, and we find ourselves ensconced in drama, not necessarily of our own making or choosing.

What then is the solution?

I believe that our ability to compartmentalize drama, when it transpires, and to resolve it as promptly, and as efficiently as we may, is the ultimate solution.

Drama can come out of nowhere, like… arriving at an international airport and discovering your plane flight has been canceled and you have eight hours to kill, trying to make the best of it.

Drama is also created through the dynamics of personal relationships, each of which we empower to create drama in our world. It is not necessary for us to empower people to create drama. It is an unconscious decision that we often times make in absence of recognition that we, ourselves, are empowering this to transpire in our world.

What is it that wakes us up to the issues that are problematic and how are we best able to resolve those in a manner that is appropriate to the situation at hand? If we judiciously review those variables and then identify and label those issues for what they are, we facilitate our ability through whatever training method is required, to dispel that drama as easy as water glides off the back of the duck.

When you see how and why drama plays a role in your life, paired with how and why you are empowering it to cause you to react in ways that you wish that you weren’t, you are one step closer to removing yourself from that autoplay functionality and instead replace your reaction with one that is impervious to the situation.

If you can be neutral in your perspectives on all of this, then you are going to find yourself in a continuous position of strength in your life, such that you might readily reduce or eradicate the majority of drama surrounding you.

For once we see the stimuli as being that which it is, we are that much more capable of training ourselves to come to that particular stimuli and react with absolutely zero reaction whatsoever.

Is this possible? Most certainly it is. I have trained myself on many circumstances to eliminate any reaction to a handful of stimuli that used to cause very dramatic reactions, when triggered. It just requires the will and the determination to practice these methodologies.

Happy Sunday!

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!
