When you are struggling, your world closes in…What is it that you do in a moment like that?

When we are struggling, our attention gets myopic by necessity. 

We are continuously looking at all of the variables in our world, and hoping to make good sense of how we might leverage any aspect of them to alleviate any portion of the struggle with which we are coping. 

It is at this time, perhaps more than ever, that it is incumbent upon us to see the issues for what they might truly be, and as a direct consequence, make certain that our focus and our attention is as pure and as determined as possible. 

This is extraordinarily high-level work when we are struggling, for our brain just wants to alleviate whatever it is that is giving us such pause for consternation and focus. 

If we are able, we leverage our internal resources to channel energy towards the greatest likelihood we stand of finding success, and continue to stay focused in that area until we are able to start seeing the potential pieces of a solution materialize. 

Sometimes in moments like this, what we need more than anything else is a loving being who understands the core struggle we are experiencing, and who readily extends their love and friendship towards us, in ways that are comforting, and reassuring. We need to elevate our internal being above the low energy cycle we are experiencing as a result of the struggle we are feeling engulfed by. 

Conversely, when you are aware that others are wrestling with problems beyond their capacity to endure, it is a loving and nurturing thing, to be able to provide them with some necessary relief, no matter how small or trivial, it may appear from our perspective… because from their perspective, it might be the life raft floating by in an ocean that is threatening to consume them. 

When we are secure in our ability to be of such a value to other people, we are more inclined to be gracious, and extend of ourselves in ways that might be of real value to someone who is suffering through these harsh realities. 

So if you are struggling and hoping you will find your answers, continue to send out your mental energy that will attract the solutions and relief that you are so in need of, so that you may provide the respite necessary for others to potentially survive. 

Happy Tuesday!

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!
