Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution.

We have all met them over the course of our lives. It does not matter what is being proposed, there is always a perceived problem.

I can imagine Albert Einstein trying to express his perspective on general relativity that directly contradicted Newton’s established laws of physics encountering all sorts of negative feedback.

The journey of an optimist or visionary requires the strength to encounter wave after wave of negativity while still maintaining a vision backed by a purpose that remains indomitable.

Today is most likely going to become one of the largest stains on the history of our country as blatant acts of sedition are carried out in the Senate chamber. My hat goes off to the patriots who have encountered this arrogant affront to our Constitution and remain optimistic in the face of so much that is troubling our country.

It is truly that spirit that represents the United States of America. We have been raised in this country to believe that everything is possible, it only requires all of us to come together and act as a union.

As Lincoln was campaigning against Douglass, the real quotation that he said was, “Judge Douglas cannot fool the people: you may fool people for a time; you can fool a part of the people all the time; but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”

We are living in a world where the current president believes that gaslighting is appropriate. All of his minions are going to get their best shot today at taking non-factual information and impeding our electoral process with their attempt to fool the people.

It’s not going to happen this time. 

In the immortal words of Roger Waters, “the tide is turning.”❤️

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!
