When you let go, you create space for better things to enter your life.

When you let go, you create space for better things to enter your life.


Have you ever held on to something or someone or some dream, for so long that you are causing detriment to yourself or to those around you? 

Sometimes, we believe in something or someone with more faith than they or the topic deserve. In a situation like that, you are well served to dig deep within and evaluate these variables with honest scrutiny and focused expectation of discerning a reliable truth from the information you are allowed access to. 

In this gray zone of belief, we find ourselves holding to that relationship or that information with everything we’ve got, expecting there is an outcome of certainty upon which we may rely. 

But in certain circumstances, those variables do not prove to be valid, nor reliable, and as a direct result, we often times find ourselves forced to ultimately come to a decision which may feel discouraging in our hearts, but in actuality is finally paving the way to a brighter and more reliable future. 

When our focus is on the wrong relationship and our determination to make that relationship or circumstance prevail is at its peak, there is nothing that can potentially dethrone its reign over us. 

But when given ample time, the truth of the situation becomes more apparent and the likelihood of that person or circumstance coming to fruition, decreases in our estimation, we are finally hitting the chapter that gives us cause to understand the true meaning behind, “when one door closes, another one opens.” 

It is our core tenant to remain loyal, and dedicated to ourselves, and to those whom are relying upon us to prevail at all costs. 

If you are finding yourself in such a circumstance, your best solution is to find a quiet space in which you may selectively review the variables which have given you pause for concern, and in a clear frame of mind, sort through those inconsistencies, such that you are truly able to make an informed decision based on reality and not on hopes, dreams and wishes. 

Happy Wednesday!

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!
