Passion Emerges From Action, Not Contemplation

Miguel Hernandez of Grumo Media and I have swapped some really good communications recently. Super sharp guy, he sent this observation and question to me -

Here is a suggestion for a future post for you. Today I met with a friend who has been friends with the [recently very successful movie director] for many years. He noticed I got some attention from Ashton Kutcher and is convinced that my career is going to skyrocket too (he is dreaming of course) and I am going to become yet another of his friends that "makes it" and he doesn't.

He is a hilarious dude and very talented movie editor and wants to succeed and make a difference on this world, like all of us really. Today he took me out for lunch to pick my brain a little and get some advice. He had a great point which I totally agree with. Here it is:

So I keep saying that to succeed you have to welcome failure and keep trying continuously. But that really works if you actually have an idea of what your passions are. The problem, the big problem most of the world have is that most people don't have a clue of what is that passion for them.

I have had that problem myself, well, my problem is that I always had too many passions and wanted to do everything which is fun but also dilutes your chances to be very good at something specifically.

Hi!

On Thinking Out Loud

Okay, here's me starting something new.

Hi. I'm Breanna I'm a 16 (well 17 tomorrow) year old girl living in Canada. I'm in a rough patch right now and need to get it all off my chest somehow, so why not start a blog. Even if no one reads it... it's better than nothing. So here we go.

The story.

when I was 13 my dad got laid off, his position wasn't needed anymore so he got a package for a year and a half with pay until he found a job. At first, he enjoyed not having to go downtown every day. While it was October he decided to take six months off to do some personal stuff before looking for a new job- why not, he was still being paid for doing nothing! April rolls around, six months after being laid off. "Well summer's right around the corner and we're going away so there's no point of getting a job right now; I'll do it in September I promise."

It's October. Six months left for your package, we need money.
