Did you know that opportunities don’t knock? They whisper!
To be in touch with your opportunities you need to have a quiet mind and a sensitive soul. Only by eliminating anger, negativity and sadness will you be able to connect with your opportunities. Otherwise, you will miss them.
“The most expensive thing in life is a missed opportunity.”
You can’t see or touch instincts. They often generate illogical feelings. If you are living in your past or worrying about the future, you will never hear or feel your opportunities coming. Only when you are living in the now are you able to be in touch with them.
Many people are stopped because they hide behind their mind, which will prevent your success. You will especially need to connect to your instincts in order to achieve artistic dreams.
The most common blocks people have is, “I don’t have time”, “I don’t have money”,“I don’t have support.” None of these ideas can stop someone who truly believes in their goals and desires.
When you experience blockage of your instincts, you must ask for help to get solutions for your personal problems. The most dangerous thing you can do is give way to logic and miss opportunities that would’ve brought you to the purpose of your life!
Know that opportunities are everywhere. They come in all shapes and sizes. They come from places you never expected. Reading this newsletter is an opportunity. What you are going to do next will create your future.
Remember, every great idea always comes with an equal amount of negativity and doubts trying to stop you. But what they are really trying to do, is challenge you, to see how much you really want it.
Every time you say yes to your instincts, you say to your life and take one step closer to fulfilling your destiny.
Did you know that you are enrolled in a full-time school called “Life”? It’s true. Each day you are required to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but they are part of your curriculum.
Humans have always sought to discover the meaning of their lives. The meaning of life is of course different for every individual. Each person has his/her own purpose and distinctive path, unique and separate from anyone else’s. So, don’t compare your path with anyone else. Focus on what you need to learn.
In order to succeed in your dreams and goals, you will be presented with numerous lessons that you’ll need to learn in order to fulfill your destiny. These lessons are specifically designed just for you. When you experience emotional pain, that is the universe trying to tell you it’s time to change your circumstances or ask for help. If you don’t change, more pain will be sent your way. Pain is life’s messenger to get your attention.
Whether you choose to learn these lessons or not is entirely up to you. If you don’t learn your lessons they will reoccur in your life until you do. You need to remember that you will be faced with lessons that you are capable of learning and helping you grow as a human being. Only when you rise up to these challenges, will you unravel the mystery and potential of your life. These lesson also help you discover astonishing gifts and talents that are within yourself that you never knew you had.
This process is not easy, but the rewards are well worth the struggle. Learn the lessons and become the person you were meant to be.
This is not what one usually hears when choosing a life in show business. Most people get a negative reaction from their friends and family when they tell them that they are going into the arts. “They are told that being an actor, singer, dancer or musician is not a proper job.” In all honesty, artists are crucial to the quality of our lives. One of the reasons the world is not in such a good place right now is because we are missing great inspirational artists.
Now, don’t get me wrong we have some great artists, it’s just that we need a lot more. Maybe that’s where you come in! We need actors who illuminate the truth about life through their performances, dancers who can show us how a body can move and express itself, singers and musicians who bring joy and a deeper understanding of life through music and song. Music is the number one universal connector, it brings people together.
Great artists can show us how to express our feelings and be emotional. They teach us that being our authentic self and following our instincts, is truly what life is all about.
We desperately need comedians to bring more humor to the world. We need unique writers and film makers to show us other cultures, different ways of living, and an understanding our own diverse and complex problems.
We’re living in a time of big political and social media change which brings a lot of uncertainty and loneliness into our lives. Artists shine a light on our common fears and human needs. They teach us that we are all basically the same. We look and behave differently but we all want the same things in life. We come from different cultures and colors, but together we create a great and beautiful rainbow.
I believe that being artists is the most important job for society. They are the mirror to our lives and doctors to our soul. If you have chosen to be in any area of the performing arts, I want to congratulate you. The world and I thank you for being a soldier of light into a world of darkness.
It’s easy to feel worried, distressed and anxious about the future, when you don’t have a clear direction of where you are going. You believe that your life will continue to unfold with the same old pattern and that nothings going to change. When you live in your limited mind, you believe that you are your “current circumstances.” But the truth is, you are never your current circumstances, you are your possibilities!
“With the eyes of fear you can not see the possibilities of life”
You can believe that the best is yet to come, if you keep learning, growing, having more faith and increasing loving yourself. Realize that if you are still on this earth, your purpose and mission is not over. There are things you still need to do and accomplishments that still awaits you! Planting seeds of opportunities, and tending to their needs makes your future exciting and full of surprises. So, always keep on planting.
Sometimes dark times are actually part of the lessons you had to experience to see the light. Know that happiness, success and love awaits you, once you decide that you deserve more.”Change your perspective, you can change your life.”
Be grateful for all the gifts and miracles life have given you so far, and you’ll be open to receive more in the future.
Art exists as a way to know ourselves.
Sometimes we feel alone, trapped in our own minds. There is a need in all human beings to ease this loneliness by creating bonds with other people by sharing our life experiences and beliefs.
One of the ways we come together is through the performing arts.
We realize that, despite physical appearances, we are all -fundamentally the same in our desires to be loved, understood and accepted. That is why art transcends all race, gender, language, religion and culture. Through art, we share our fears, our desires, our needs, our hopes, our fantasies and our lust.
When we go to a concert, listen to a singer, watch a film or a play that resonates within our soul, we feel as though someone understands us. This results in compassion and a deeper understanding of one another that can heal the world. This, in my opinion, is the greatest gift we can give each other.
Empathy and kindness.
The performing arts are a living tradition, a legacy that must be guarded and maintained with absolute ferocity. I am so grateful that I’ve been given the gift to be an artist. I feel fortunate to be in this industry.
If you’ve been given the gift to be an artist, consider yourself lucky!
Art is also God’s way of saying hello, shouting to you and revealing something glorious about itself.
So, pay attention to music, songs, dance, films and plays. Listen and watch carefully. Art has the power to transform, illuminate, educate, inspire and motivate.
Love art the way art loves life. Remember your life is a work of art as well.
In life you attract not what you want, but who you are! Are you attracting the right opportunities? The right people? To reach your goals or dreams, one of the things you must do is invest in yourself.
You will need lessons. Lots and lots of lessons with teachers who are the best in their field. “You are what you study and who you study with.” Only the right training keeps you ahead of your competition.
It’s been said that to be a professional in ANYTHING, it requires a minimum of 10,000 hours of study. You must know that no one will invest in you until you invest in yourself. And no one will believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself first!
Investments do not only come in forms of money, but it will always take your energy, time, heart and soul for it to succeed. There is no age limit to becoming the person you where born to be. But, you can’t wait forever either!
You need to make sure that you are taking care of yourself by eating right, exercising and meeting other like minded people – like you. You will need their help and encouragement to achieve anything meaningful. It is crucial that you also take care of your mental well being, by not only being committed but by having fun and laughing a lot. This attitude will give you the energy to overcome the blocks and fears that will come along the way.
You must also seek to learn the latest success techniques. They are powerful tools you will need to achieve anything great!
Try something revolutionary today. Choose to be happy. Yes, happiness is a choice. Happy people are not so held up by their past. Happy people believe in their future! They will find a way to break through this world’s negativity and limitation.
Lastly, invest in finding a mentor. This is a step most people never achieve. Finding a mentor truly transformed my life. A person that brings out the brilliance in you. When you invest in yourself artistically, financially and emotionally, you will become a magnet for others who will want to meet you, to see what you have to offer. Also know that when you become the person you where born to be – you bring more love, joy and kindness to yourself and others.
