We Cannot Become What We Want By Remaining What We Are.

You say you want an evolution…
Well, you know…
We all want to change the world.

The first change starts internally. A recognition that there is a higher potential to which you may ascribe…. and a personal determination which you are willing to employ on your behalf.

Leaving your comfort zone and venturing into places unknown causes anxiety for the best of us, but comparing that option against the stagnation of not evolving is equality woeful.

Imagine being a baby bird and taking that first leap of faith out of the nest and expecting to be able to fly. I wonder if that baby bird has any anxiety or if it is so second nature and so wired into their DNA that it is no different than a baby taking its first step.

As you get older and you have opportunity to have some setbacks on your path of personal acceleration, the anxiety of trying to venture to higher ground can be daunting.

At the end of the day, it boils down to a ratio of personal courage versus personal fear. But the exhilaration that is achieved by conquering that fear and arriving at your next destination is so contagious, I think we ultimately end up spending a lifetime repeating that process.

Wishing you great success on your current and future journeys!!?

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!
