From what I’ve seen, it is hard to predict material success, ESPECIALLY in the entertainment industry. And even if we get it, it does not guarantee fulfillment or happiness. But here’s what’s well within our grasp: it is possible to conduct ourselves like people who DESERVE success; to invite it to our doorstep by showing up every day and dutifully creating. But even more important than that: it is possible to delight in our efforts, to plunge fully into the worlds we dream, and to prep them as best we can for others’ consumption, hopefully lifting their hearts and capturing their imaginations.
I feel that when I engage in creativity with this mentality, I not only serve others, but myself as well.
