I like to say I've coined the term do what you've loved to do since 12! In addition I finally see why I coined that term more than any other phrase I've used to give this blog a signature. The reason being isn't just because you will be happy if you do what you love. No, it's like gary kelly said in the book "the one thing". Success is found in doing what matters most. To me what matters most is my blog. Rocket. This is the one thing. When I'm not focused on this one thing, everything around me is falling downhill and I'm the cartoon character in front of this tumbling snowball looking like goofy. So, we can't live like that, I can't live like that. Instead, I see myself as the person who builds a domino effect and is knocking down dominoes with a goal to get an even bigger dominoe to knock down each time and creating a momentum large enough to build the inertia of a rocket taking off into space. That way of life sounds much more interesting and worth fighting for. The way we do create that life is by opening up our conscience and seeing for ourselves what is truly most important to us. The book says to do two things at once is to do neither. It also says if you chase two rabbits you won't catch either one, but my favorite bit of all of the quotes is this one THE MAJORITY OF WHAT YOU WANT WILL COME FROM THE MINORITY OF WHAT YOU DO. I will shed more light and reflect more on this @ 12. Noon
It's 5:54 am and I'm signing off
Be wise and do the one thing
Build your own empire
I'm in Northport, Michigan filming a pure Michigan commercial. It's September tenth and today I'm an extra! Yeah I got lucky! All in all I'm blessed, the shoot is going smooth we're getting paid to do nothing, sit around and wait. When filming starts we will get back to work but right now we're all chilling all the extras lol. Playing the waiting game. I got selected to be in the commercial luckily through my job. The casting agency drove from traverse city to a small town called Baldwin, Michigan and found me while I was working, asked me to audition and called me back for the second audition in traverse city. I went and killed it. They texted me the minute I was done. I got an email saying I was selected and the rest was history. Pure Michigan as a whole is amazing. The production company is very nice, great to work with and very good at what they do. They film the commercials dedicated to bringing more money and more tourist to Michigan.
We're actually going to start filming again with the extras in the scene so I'm flying in.
Over and out.
