Behind the wall of truth;

Are you really safe behind the lies of walls? I have learned one thing in this business; “you never know who someone is or knows”. This statement has saved my career over and over. I am nice to everyone until it is time not to be nice. (yes, that is a “Roadhouse” quote). I am only human, but I keep my bad mouthing down to a minimum. Though, I know that there are people out in this world talking completely ill of me to others. Their goal is to stop people from talking with me? I have no idea. Maybe they are just happy to help take possibility away from me because I destroyed them in some way?

Oh wait, we are talking about people I've never done wrong to. People I can only assume have never hung out with me. I assume because maybe during my time of not seeing them around in my circles they could have been A) Hiding from my sight, B) video taping me and C) washing my backside in the shower without me knowing. Either way, their motivation is slightly convoluted. I am at a loss of words. To attacking someone in the midst of shadows cast down by tall walls shows a lot of character.

How does one handle this? If you are having a similar situation do not fret. Take note of who it is, what people are saying and just continue being true to yourself. You never chase an audience, you let that audience come to you. So if you are being kind, respectful and know you have done nothing terrible wrong, continue being you. Remember faces and names while you place them into your own personal black-book. I am sure you are in theirs, but the idea is that you are a better person. Be cordial around them but don't be rudely nice to them. Let them be people behind the wall. Stand your ground in front of the wall for all to see.

Why are they afraid to speak to you about their ill-slated words is a mystery to me, or them. Of course, if you think about it... why won't they say to people around you? If it is true, what's the hold up? Break the wall down or keep it held strong? I say let that wall keep building itself up, while you stand on top of it and shout out the truth through actions and integrity.

Thick Skinned;

Thick Skinned and plants. We will get to that. I am an entertainer working hard to make things happen. I pretty much do this for a living. I don't have a day job, I own my own company while doing what I can to help out people trying to get started in this business known as entertainment. Of course, reading my blogs you know I do many things.

Comedy is where I am taking you today. I am very against doing open mic nights. Though, when starting out, jump on it just to get use to being on stage in front of three or four people. I am being generous with that number. I have two mics that I go to at this point, only because I like to support what they are doing for up and coming comedians.

First one is Fin's Pub in over in Oakdale NY every Monday night. And the other is one ran by my good buddy Leigh West. He does his show at Felt Billiards in Commack NY. I don't get paid for this, it is just me being around my friends in the business. I like that, I like what they are doing for beginners and people trying to work out materials.

Why do I dislike open mics? Well, there is little support from other comedians, you can't really get a good read on jokes and everyone is judging you based on their material. I like to build my set up with laughable material and I can only know that by hearing laughs. If you can get a comedian to laugh, it means your joke most likely is bad. Just sayin'

Here we go, Thick Skinned. In this business there are people we call “Plants”. A plant is someone you know that sits in the audience. You either put them there or they are a fellow comedian you have known. I called out a comic's name and they got so mad they started to heckle me on stage. Long story short. I respected this guy in the business.

Why? Good question. Because about 3 years early he taught me something. Humility. He was on stage and took a few cracks at me about the sound system. I got mad, though I waited till he got off stage and ask him not to do that. He said... “We are comedians, it is all jokes. Don't take anything personal.” I respected that enough to believe it.

That is not how it ended up happening on this night. In closing, I like to have fun out there. And it is COMEDY. Good or Bad, it is just about having fun. As a comic, you try not to heckle another comedian when they are on stage. Even if you don't think they are considered a comic, funny, or talented. It is their time on stage.

Just have fun out there. WE ARE ENTERTAINERS DOING THINGS PEOPLE WISH THEY WERE NOT SHY SO THEY CAN DO IT TOO!!! We owe these people our respect on stage. Because we are giving an opportunity to be up there for all the people who can't find their way to the stage. Embrace it, respect it, and most of all... HAVE fun!!!

I gave up on I and became me!

The best time of the year is coming up for all those looking to find meaning in life again. You give your little list of things you want to those around you, hoping they can buy you want you want. You look around at stores you might have to return things to. Oh how I love the holiday year ending. It is filled with meaning all over the place.

I've been entertaining for years and all I want is my two front teeth back for being the biggest smart ass on the block. Okay, so I've gotten my nose broken twice, cleaned the floor of my blood with some guys face, humiliated about three other punks by putting them into unbreakable holds and for what? To show that fighting is stupid!

It comes down to how powerful words can be in any situation. Though, I don't believe words have power. Will, “WILL” has power. How willful are you to stand down from emotions and take on a few pounds of words? The more “WILLFULL” you are the less chance some jack-turd with a six shooter filled with grand-ole verbiage will be able to take you down.

Where was I going with this? Oh that's right. I have given up on I and became me. My whole life is mine, not yours, or hers or even his. I've been there from the beginning till now. Now one else has had as much time being around me as I have. It's beautifully annoying how much I have to stand me. But I like me, so it is not that bad.

But image having to deal with me all day. There are people out there that don't like me, or can just reach a limit of toleration of me before going insane. It's not about them. It is about me and my life. Just as it is about them and their life. Live people, make moves of your life to live it truthfully.

Just don't hurt people, and it doesn't matter what they do outside of physically damaging you. But this does bring an interesting “To ask yourself” question. Why do we look at life so dirty? We see perverted filth in things? I've been studying the human race for a life time to realize everyone is a pig. But in a beautiful way. The non-beautiful way is how they hide it.

EMBRACE IT!!! Be truthful to yourself. Don't judge others and certainly don't judge yourself. Women and men are out there who love their bodies, despite how they act around others. They love being sexual, they love watching sexuality swimming in sensuality. Love, life, sex, nudity, art, colors, touching, breathing, seeing, etc. Life is around us, EMBRACE IT!!!

That is my “just under 500 word” rant... Peace in harmony!!!

How awesome is awesomely bad?

We get it, you are great at what you do. Though, have you ever really compared yourself to the list of success in this town? Look at where you are and who you are performing with. If you see people in the same place as you, maybe you're reality check needs to kick in. Don't let your reality not be check so you get kicked out! You may be great, and there may be others great in this town, but remember, there are people who are professionals at the same things you are doing. They make a living at it. Putting everything they have into it and making the right moves. Look at that list next time you start getting a big head. It is about perspective reasoning.

Reason being... Everyone is in this together. No one is better than others so don't take advantage of a nice person. Okay, some people may have more talent than others, but that still doesn't explain why you are all performing at an open mic, or fighting to get the same job... OR hell, you already both work at the same job in the same building. If you allow yourself to be pushed in the corner you will be forgotten. Live in the spotlight but don't be a douche in the bag. The tradeoff to being nice, and realistically aware of your position in your field is how others will enjoy you being around.

Don't allow your attitude to turn into a jaded outlook. Embrace those around you working hard at what they do. The truth of the matter is this... (Let's us comedy... but it is the same in every field) You may be funny in your local town, but there is definitely a person slightly better than you. So you could be considered, in the range of things, a beginner, them a feature, and believe it or not someone else could be considered a headliner... IN YOUR LOCAL AREA... but if a Louis C.K. walked into an open mic night to just “workout” things... You'd see why you are all still missing something.

No matter how “GREAT” you are, there is always someone much better than you at your stage of the game. You can always get much better, so practice... Network by being a nice person and respecting people caring about what they want to do... and Market yourself with what you can in the groups you can be in. If you are a douche in the bag you won't grab anyone's attention to network. You won't be able to market because no one cares about what you have going on... and your practicing will all be for naught because of your bag of douches being filled!

Thomas J Bellezza 4 President!!! Vote for Thomas J Bellezza for President! Tweet it all over!!!!! Thomas J Bellezza for President #TJB4President


1) I promise to raise taxes to an unrealistic record height so that when I lower them by a reasonable % you'll all love me even though the taxes are still stupidly high...

2) I promise to ensure hundreds, if not tens of jobs! Not so much through my efforts but because people can go out there to get these jobs themselves. Since, realistically speaking, the Government can't give you jobs, based on certain requirements, you must qualify for said position. I will say this; if "we" as a nation spend more money than more opportunities will open up for job interviews.

Making a name for yourself; Know, Unknown!

I say it all the time, okay maybe most of the time. I take breaks every few hours or so then I say it. I say it loud!!! My belief is that you'll never have to touch a stage to become successful. I said it, and I will say it again so you can re-read it correctly. “You never have to touch a stage to become successful”. In entertainment that is... It is true. If you don't believe me I suggest you continue reading on below.

Success comes from being known. The more well know you are the more people will follow what it is you are doing. If you can get your name out there through all the avenues of this worlds connections than you will be successful when you finally wish to hit a stage. It is as easy as going out there and telling people who you are. Okay, it is a little harder than that. You have to stick in people's minds. How do you do that?

SLOGANS! You need a slogan. Something like... “Do you have what it takes to... Make A Right Left Here?” Yes and this leads you to a website called... www . Make A Right Left Here . Com. Smart? Yes, why? Because it lets people remember things easier for you. Humans have a hard time remembering full on names. What they don't have a hard time remembering is logos, such as the one in the photo above, jingles, or slogans that stick with you. Not everyone is going A) Remember Thomas J Bellezza, B) How to pronounce that Bellezza or C) remember how to spell hard last names.

What will they remember? That catchy slogan in their head or an image. So how do you mold this into people's heads? Through stickers with your logo image and slogan on it. Through getting online and marketing yourself, for free if you have to, through Social Media, Blogging, and even Message Boards. Get your name out there. A lot of people, A LOT OF PEOPLE ask how. It is something you have to do all the time. The hard work will form an avalanche effect and cause people to do it for you. In the beginning you have to take time and do it. Once that jumps off on its own than you have to take on other all day responsibilities.

That is it for now. I will be back with another lesson if you so wish to learn. I have other blogs, and a company which helps people learn these things. Follow here, and there, and our websites to keep up and informed. Remember, there are no walls only solutions, and make things happen by making things happen!

Reviews Sucks; Live and die by the words of who?

Reviews can make or break a person in moments sliced inside a sentence of words. The old saying in entertainment is “You are only as good as your last performance”. A truer statement has never been said before in entertainment. So, the same goes for reviews. I've had my fair share of reviews.

I remember the day I decided not to care anymore about reviews. Or that I should have an emotional connection to them. I played a musical concert and I had two reviews I read from that same shows. One review said I couldn't play the guitar at all. The other review said I was the greatest guitarist they had ever seen.

A review, in my opinion, should not have opinions. They should be objective details of a situation so that an onlooker can get a non-bias understanding of that particular event.

What I get out of reviews is one thing... Nothing. I look at them and just wave them off. Though in the defense of a reviewer, I see a bad review and I know that makes people look on it in a negative way. So I continue working harder to bring a better performance than my last to every continued time I get on stage. I don't need a review to make me strive to be better than last, I need motivation in me!

Entertainers being pulled left and right from their audience will never be able to find a straight road to their personal voice. Your audience will find you, but you will never find your audience. Every change for every onlooker will continue to change others who've always enjoyed where you were in your ability.

Take the review with a grain of salt. Listen to it, read it if you would like, but when it comes to truth enjoy reviews that are expressing what that particular event was. And not so much what they have an opinion on!

Poem; Summer Free

I just felt like writing a poem today, no big thing about my life in the entertainment world.

Cold sneaks in through open windows. Fire's bright sun pales behind soft white clouds. Aloof, children hiding among long sleeve shirts. What once was heard in playful delight, now awaits quietly for snow dropped flakes. In fish smooth lakes fathers and sons dance in bonding speech. Now shakes of wind forced upon a tree's beautiful leaves, to a ground where sons and fathers rake. Whispers of jack-o-lanterns cry out “please” in attention seeking pleads. No longer late days blanketing our runs through dirt covered paths. Nights come crawling covering our streets quickly for life's children to sleep. How summer breeze will lay deeply against my memories cheek. Friends laughing, giggling away scrapped knees and late nights of hide and go seek. Oh winter I know you're coming with great cheer, family gatherings and presents for all... but how free we all felt in summer's short lived open call. Till again, spring will leap us into your warm embracing arms.

Com-sic-rit-tor (Comic, Musician, Writer and Actor)

I dabble, professionally, into multiple areas of entertainment. As I am a Comsicrittor all my ventures have become successful through hard work. I have even taken on a more behind the scenes chair as well. In which, I have become successful. What is success? I get ask this a lot. So, to define it in two ways. First, the dictionary version.

Dictionary . Com

Suc-cess; [suhk-ses] noun
1. The favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors.
2. The attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.
3. A successful performance or achievement: The play was an instant success.
4. A person or thing that is successful: She was a great success on the talk show.

Now, my definition

Thomas J Bellezza
Suc-cess; [suhk-ses] noun
1. Being happy in where you are and what you are doing.
2. Setting a goal and completing it within your selected time frame.
3. Being known well enough that your marketing has avalanche into a self promoting device.
4. Living without fear of falling into a hole or being destroyed of all that you are.

We make success of ourselves through hard work and pushing forward. Setting goals helps you direct that success. Even if your first goal is to write down what your major goal is. Then, second, write down the goals you need to do beforehand to succeed to that major goal. When you finalized the last thing on that list which leads to you accomplishing your major goal, you then are a success. Now a lot of people think success is being rich beyond your wildest dreams. For some people that would be, others not so much. I know actors that are content in working with a local theater while they have an everyday normal 9-5 job. It's what you make of yourself in your heart that compliments your goals to success.

I am successful because I wanted to be a musician, and I am. I've tour North America, I've played festivals. I've opened up for all my favorite national acts. I even made a ton of new friends on the way up. I also wanted to be a comedian. I took the steps to do so and by my 3 performance I was getting paid. Within a year I was performing in major clubs. I even have thrown together my own comedy productions. To boot, I am a published writer with a few more books getting finalized for publication. And one of my greatest successes was wanting to act and perform Shakespeare. I set out and accomplished it twice in less than 3 months. I am making things happen by making things happen.

When I hear people can't do something it blows my mind. You can do anything you want. Just figure out your level of success, accomplishment and make your goal list. You can do it, you can do it until you don't want to do it anymore. Think small, work up the list till you are on top of your game. And remember, it is not always about stage time. Anyone can get on stage, trust me, I know. You must continue to utilize the 3 needs for success; Networking, Marketing and Practice. Both of the two aforementioned necessities and your particular craft. I believe in you, and you should too!

All you need is to believe

Faith in something greater can always bring us to religion. That's not true here with what I am talking about. I am talking about faith in a person's ability to push forward. Not everything we do ends up working out. If we try, we try, and that's a success. I know many people who want things, or who wish they could accomplish certain desires in life and yet nothing comes from them. Everyday another moment passes them by, for what? If you try and fail, you have already found your path to success.

Thomas Edison once said “I have not failed 1,000 times. I have successfully discovered 1,000 ways to NOT make a light bulb.". He took what was failure only to turn it into success. If he did not try once, he would have never made it to where he is today... Dead... I mean, the creator of the light bulb. We may not use his design as much anymore, but I am sure that's not the point I am getting at. One thing you can learn from this is that persistence is a great tool in succeeding in entertainment.

I wanted to perform stand-up comedy. I called every number I could find until someone let me on stage as green as I was in the business of comedy. If I had gave up after my first call, I might not have gotten to where I am today. The truth is, I didn't think about today. I thought of that moment in the now. I wanted to get on stage, that's all I cared about. Just to tell any joke I could think of. I succeeded in trying, and then doing. I believed in myself enough to keep pushing forward without fail. I may have tripped, but I got right back up.

Poem; I'd never lived before

Her eyes gave me moments of peace. I could rush through painful days knowing my soul could rest in her gaze. There is no greater purity in a woman's sensuality than their cunning gracefulness. Laying passively curled along warm arms her fingers stroking my hair. She airily blesses me with soothing words of love. I gave-in years ago to this passion as I fell off a flowing waterfall's dream. Night seemed never darker than a midsummer bliss.

Her kisses leaving marks of forever on my skin. Moisture collected in wait with her release. Ever enhanced with sparks of cool wind over our thrones bed, my mind began to understand. If death looked over me in this moment I'd ready myself for leave. For If I had not known her in this moment I had never lived before. Every “now” was brighter than my last. She gave me growth in life's flickering undertones, paling what horrors I had ever known.

My greatest glory is knowing she was here beside me now. Tomorrow could come nothing, and yesterday will always be for sure. As my soul falls a slumber let my heart speak to be heard. For if I am the lucky, she stands among me once more. My life within a learn has will once more to embrace that which had not been there before. Music had no sound, art was turn to gray, and in life's art of theater I could only hear the ending play. Till our feet came a halt and your silence broke into Hello...

Commitment or Commit-quit?

There will come a time where you work hard to get as much work as you can. To keep pushing forward in a business where plenty comes in few quantities. Those little chances a performer gets when auditioning for their next gig. Life in entertainment can be short lived or harvested to extend till one so chooses to step down. It comes down to commitment or commit-quit. One must commit to taking chances, auditioning and never giving up. In this business once you are in, you have to keep working hard to stay in.

Where does commitment or Commit-quit come in? Rule of thumb in this business is “Don't over book what you can't handle.” A simplistic concept in itself. Don't give in to needing as much work as you can get. Take on work that you can handle. After any audition there usually is a schedule given out. If before, or after you audition, be honest with the company of people auditioning. Let them know your schedule beforehand to allow both parties, you and them, to see any conflicts that might occur.

Once you agree to a commitment you now enter another level of proper etiquette. Quitting after being hired for a gig can become damaging to your future career. Word spreads fast of names in this entertainment business. That is why when going out for auditions find your “needs and wants”. Do you NEED to work that you'll take anything, or do you WANT to work so you'll take anything. If you need work, remember, you might not like that particular gig. It's not about liking a gig it is about working as hard as you can to make that gig count. A want comes down to these same principles.

Stays focused and keep your commitments when you are given opportunities that others would fight hard for... don't commit-quit!

Here today, no one cares about tomorrow 0000002

I like the taste of life on my lips. I enjoy seeing things for the first time, or watching a small little insect walking along its path unknowingly of my presence. I hear things, witness things, I walk watching life just following a path unaware to even its traveling follower. I wonder if anyone really knows what's going on around them. If getting to work is the only thing that propelled them out of bed. Is there more to life? Is there more to their life? When walls fall and smiles grow you think “maybe there is a chance”. Who knows, all I know is I try and find what's next in life, not what could have been. Or worse, dwelling or what is not. We only get one chance at this thing, so why not live it. Stop walking along shackled destines just to find yourself dead poor, or both. You can break free of what “this” world expects of you. What do “YOU” expect from you? BE!

Still going strong!

Shows get canceled. We can't help that. As entertainers we can only move on to the next gig. I've lost auditions, saw music and comedy shows be moved or canceled all together. Oddly, I continue on. This life is a once in a “life-time” opportunity, and as the waves come in from great big oceans, I take all that comes in to my soul. Embrace that which comes into life.

My adventure comes from traveling, thus never settling on what did not happen. Even while I am working, or have something lined up, I continue to search out my next venture. Yes, any venture I am currently in gets all my attention, though I never forget one major rule; “Once you are done with any gig, you are unemployed.”. I also believe in working 365 days a year. When nothing is going on I feel I am wasting my time doing nothing.

Of course play time has to come once in a while, I'd rather be working. I like working. Not so much working a day job, but working in entertainment business. Be it behind or in front of cameras, I love it. That is my fun time. When I get older I am sure I will slow down and get back to my artistic ways. For now, I just want to keep moving forward, making things happen by making things happen.

Life only happens once... I shall continue this amazing adventure...

To love or to wove

Traveling Adventures of a Resilient Entertainer; To love or to wove... 

Being an entertainer is hard on one's soul. Even harder on those around you. Your skin has to be thick enough to take on every attack from people that most likely will be gone from your life. People in the media will point out your worst qualities despite any good you may have accomplished. 

For me it has been dealing with people in my life. Rather I should say not in my life. I have dedicated my purpose to making things happen to make things happen. I only get one life to make my soul smile. Do I want a person to help my soul smile? No, I want someone in my life that adds to my already smiling being. I am a hard person to deal with since I live logically... well, logically in my mind. It's hard for me to express my feelings all the time. Though I've also had a hard time keeping up with needs of others.

Relationships with friends, loved ones and even enemies take a lot out of a person. It is almost too much to deal with on a daily bases. I can say one thing is true, I have lost three people in the last two months that have meant a world of life to me. They'll never know what has been added to my life because of them. How much they meant or the thanks I have for them giving me a great many beautiful memories...

One was a great love that I'm sure will never come to me again. She is gone, mostly on me, I am a hard person to deal with. But that story is more complicated than a few words could ever explain. I do miss her dearly. But she is better off without my lagging existence. We were just two strong souls fighting for something in our lives. I couldn't give her what she wanted, not even just me. And I know she couldn't keep up with my ever changing life. I'll always miss her, and I wish I could say sorry and mend everything, but I can not...

Another was a friend that really brought art into my purpose. She has her own life now and will surely do great things. She's a fantastic artist, and creator. There will never be enough nice things I could say about her, but I can't keep defending my actions and words. I just don't know how to, nor have the energy to do so. I wish her a beautiful peace... 

And finally my best friend and cousin. I am a douche, that's all I can say on that. He has his life now which I wish him well. I just don't have a censor on my brain that says, “Sir, shut up, you are about to upset someone.”. Some master of TAC I am. This next chapter of his life will be glorious I am sure. He is happy, and that's all I care about. 

So the life of an entertainer starts with yourself, being able to move your life as the business needs you to. To find people who can move along with that change, or deal with how busy the Traveling Adventures of a Resilient Entertainer can be. If you are ready to sacrifice those in your life than maybe you are ready for this adventure. If you are not, I seriously recommend you get out of this business and do it as a hobby. There are a select few people who've left my life that make me think I am not ready for this life, but that's not up to me anymore. I've been in this life for so long, I know nothing else.

You are the only one guaranteed to be on your death bed at the end of your life, but I know the few that will be in my thoughts in that last moment. Goodbye my Queen...

Make things happen, by making things happen!!!

I set out to act more this year, and in doing so, I've auditioned for 6 parts, I got three of them. A Shakespeare play "Romeo and Juliet" and two original plays from this horror production company called "Twitch Twitch Productions".

The "Romeo" play gave me an opportunity to network among wonderful actors, news people and the director. In doing so, I was asked to perform in "Much Ado About Nothing" without even auditioning. All in all, 6 auditions and 4 roles. That's 66%. Not bad.

What amazes me is what I've seen and done. I'm always using my 3 needs to success; Networking, Marketing, and Practice, but it shocks me when others don't and then get mad at the lack of chances they missed. They complain or attack others for their success.

During "Romeo and Juliet" a news person showed up. And one of the actors just kept complaining that they missed filming him on stage. And he was pissed. I told him and a few of the actors backstage "How to say it, when to say it and why to say it...". No one took my advice, or a chance, so I did. I got an interview that aired on TV, it was a close up of my face, and I promote this show, the venue we were at and future shows for the company I was acting for. It led to the director really liking what I did, but some actors were mad at me.

The next show, "Much Ado About Nothing", brought new faces to me, people I call friends now, and another opportunity that I saw people pass up. This time I just sprung into action so as "not to offend anyone with advice". It turned out the photographer was from another news company. We talked, exchanged cards, and went on our way. I was the only one who thought to go up to this person.

Make things happen by making things happen... I made some goals to act more this year, and I did. I made goals to do comedy more, and I am... I made goals to record my second Album of music and I am. I made goals to push my company BBR Productions to the next level and I did. Don't complain, find solutions to make your life happen. And if you don't understand something or what's going on, then ask questions!

Peace in harmony....

Everyday is just too much for one person to be working their butt off. That’s the life we as entertainers chosen. It’s a beautiful life when everything works out and not so much when it just seems like it is taking forever. Little by little chipping away our will to continue on…
Don’t give up. It takes on average 10 years to succeed. Look at all the evidence out there and don’t be discouraged. Just keep at the 3 needs for success; Networking, Marketing and Practice. With this as your guide, don’t look away from your goals.
It took about 10 years for my first band “TENEbRAE” to even get into negotiations for label representation. 5 years for us to realize we were doing it wrong, 3 years to perfect ourselves as a product, and 2 more years to align our opportunities.
As a comedian, I took what I had learned in “TENEbRAE” (a progressive doom metal band), and applied that to my goals. In less than 1 year I was on TV, big named stages such as Gotham Comedy Club and Caroline’s NY, etc.
I did this all by having goals and setting course for those goals. While continuing to master the 3 needs for success. Today, I have successfully opened up an office for my production company “BBR Productions” which was designed to help people get into the business. I have an Acting, Stand-Up Comedy, Writing career and all the while a new band called “Altayon” that I can do with the freedom of my production company “BBR Productions”.
Twas not easy, it took hard work, the 3 needs for success and goals. For the last 15 years, I’ve been pushing myself to be involved in entertainment. AND HERE I AM… come follow me, there is always room for more people.

You have the cutest nose

Our lives fill each day with dreams. We may not remember the dreams we have at night, but we’ll always remember the dreams we have when walking around and hoping for the next great thing to happen in our lives.
Some of us want to be actors, others scientists and even teachers of this world. What keeps us from fulfilling that dream? It may be a mixture of no motivation, lack of direction and just seeing the long road as something you wish you could skip.
I say forget those things and pass your life up no longer. Become your dream by setting yourself in the right direction with the correct people. Slowly but surely you will come to realize you get one life to live and nothing after that. Make your dreams come to life…
I have a dream means a lot more to people nowadays, and it can mean more to you if you let it. There is nothing ever holding you back besides your own detaining self. Be resilient in your dreams by setting up those goals, practicing what you want and get out there people.
Let no one hold you back, let nothing stop you, for there are no walls only solutions. A great thing I learned in this business of entertainment is networking helps in wondrous ways. Befriend everyone you can with an open smile. You are NOT the greatest thing since slice bread, especially if no one likes you being around.
In closing, open the door to your adventure through doing one thing a day to make your life happen. If you don’t like where you are in life, change it, make the moves to see your dreams come to life. I have faith in you, and you should too… and I don’t even know you. Hell, I may not even like you, but I still think you deserve a chance at being the best of what you want to be!
