Don’t Aim At Success

viktor-frankl

“Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”

Just in time for the Holidays too!  Would make a tasty stocking stuffer for that rocker on your list – assuming they made the “Nice” list.

Thanks everyone for your support!

Check out this lovely card made for me by my friend Paige from Virginia!

What a year this has been!  I have been lucky enough to get to do a lot of work this year with a lot of really wonderful people.  Had a lot of laughs and made a lot of memories!!  You have all brought me countless smiles and feelings of good will for which I’m forever grateful.

Earlier this year I got to shoot a movie for the Lifetime channel directed by my friend Steven Monroe.  I got to play an FBI agent and it just aired last month by the name “Online Abduction“.

A few days later, the movie I wrote and directed, Radio America, released on various platforms in North America.  You can order it through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy.  You can also stream it on demand via Comcast, Verizon, Charter, MGO, Vudu, MS, and Google Play.  With more outlets coming soon!

An album of songs is also recently available from that movie!

I have been doing a live play locally here for the holidays. It is a heartwarming piece based on a short story by Truman Capote loosely based on his experiences growing up in Alabama with his cousins.

And I just finished shooting my second episode of Supergirl. It’s a great show that has wonderful empowering themes. I’m proud to be a part of it, even if I may play an operative of the dark side. 😉

Though we had to say goodbye to our sweet dog Scout this summer, we’re grateful that she is no longer suffering from cancer. And our pitbull Sophie is loving the many new human and K9 friends she has made at our new home!

And just while I have been thinking about all the things I have to be thankful for, my world seems a little brighter and better! Turns out it’s true that if you turn your focus in a certain direction, you’ll just naturally experience more of that feeling. So I suggest turning off all of the negative headline news and resist those conversations that lure you into complaining and feeling helpless. And rather start focusing on all of the great things you have going on in your life (there are tons of them, I promise!!) and all the power you have on the things in your immediate circle of influence!  Your world might actually get a little brighter too!!

And Happy Holidays!!

All Things Possible!!
