So one of my most recent photo sessions I got a chance to work with my buddy Ernest. From the moment I met him he's always been working hard at becoming an actor and not letting anything get in his way. It's been his goal and purpose and I recently found out that he booked a major supporting role in an upcoming movie with Scott Eastwood and Orlando Bloom.
HUGE AND AWESOME NEWS!
I love seeing these kinds of stories. What's even better is that I see more and more friends with these breakthrough successes. They have been putting in the hours and their own blood, sweat, and tears relentlessly in pursuing what they love. It gives me hope. It makes me take a second look at my processes and what I need to be doing to get there.
Even though it may not be something I say directly to my friends, I want them to know how much I look up to them and admire what they do. It helps me to look at what I'm doing and to gather focus and purpose. Figure out where I can improve and raise myself up to match what they're putting out. When speaking about the output I don't mean the level of creativity that they're at (I have a long way to go for that!), but more in terms of volume and regimen. The more I keep this up, the more I can raise the personal bar I'm setting for myself.
Taking all this into stock I just have one request. STAY ON ME. Don't let me stop in this journey. If you see it's been a while since I've posted something kick my ass into shape! Tell me I'm breaking a promise that I set out here. Tell me that no matter what, I need to keep moving forward, and don't stop. EVER.
