The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.

The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.


How many of your best dreams have you manifested?

Dreams may be dime-a-dozen, but those that are ultimately pursued, and executed properly, are far less common. 

What does it take to ultimately act on a dream? Sometimes a dream may be put in motion at the instant the dream is conjured. Other times, predicated upon the dream, it may take years before the dream is ultimately able to come to fruition. 

In either circumstance, there is an impetus that is the ubiquitous spark that ignites every dream, and launches it into becoming a reality. In the course of acting on a dream, we are often awakened to harsh reality, which may diminish any and all of the options that we might wish were at our disposal. 

In the time that we view those obstacles within this harsh reality, we may be tempted to view them as an irresolute reality, or we may refuse to see them as an obstacle at all, and accelerate our behavior, towards the realization of the dream with all of the energy that we can summon. 

We chase our dreams because they fuel our inner being, further accentuating our desire to live and to experience all that we might possibly have opportunity to experience. 

In these moments, we are subject to all of the persuasive variables that potentially keep us at distance from our dreams, and which often times are the reasons why those dreams may never come to fruition. 

It is only through a core, resolute mindset that understands that in the pursuit of our most elusive hopes and aspirations, these obstacles are a necessary prerequisite in the course we are establishing, that empowers us to defeat them. 

If life has empowered you with a dream that you truly believe in, it is my humble opinion that you must summon all of your courage and pursue it with everything you’ve got.

As Michael Jordan, so famously shared, I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”

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!
