I’ve willed almost all of the stuff I’ve done into existence, and if I can do that, ANYBODY can do that. So start your chatter: talk about what you’re going to do. Don’t pursue a role, LIVE that role. Like my sister told me, back when I confessed I wanted to be a filmmaker. “Then BE a filmmaker,” she said. “That’s what I’m saying: I wanna be.” And that’s when she gave me the million dollar advice: “No – BE a filmmaker. You say you wanna be; just BE a filmmaker. Think every thought AS a filmmaker. Don’t pine for it or pursue it; BE it. You ARE a filmmaker; you just haven’t made a film yet.
I love this thought. Act like you are who you want to be, even if there’s nothing to show for it yet. Just start living the life you imagine and being the person you want to be.
