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.

Girls, Cars, and Alcohol

I'm currently attempting to immerse myself in country music. Being born and raised in Texas, I feel it's only natural that I embrace my inner cowboy. And, with the possibility of going to school next year outside of Texas, I want to be able to answer "yes" to the question, "Do you ride your horse to school?"

I jokingly told a friend I'm going to be the next country music star, to which she replied, "All you have to do is sing about beer, tractors, and girls."

I laughed at first, but then I realized that the statement was surprisingly accurate. Ok yes, there are songs out there that aren't. But those stereotypes do have some degree of truth.

Then I thought about rap music, the genre I've mainly listened to throughout my life. It's practically the same: artists rap about girls, cars, and alcohol.
