Sometimes it’s hard to stay positive when you feel your career has hit a wall. Like all you’re doing is surviving but not really living. You’re working to earn money to live, not working because its what you love. I’ve become complacent.
Just feels like I’m letting my life slip away, and not reaching my full potential. Seems I’m ok with living comfortably.
I do not like this. I just feel really alone right now, like I’m proving all the doubters right. I’ve never sought ‘fans’ or ‘supporters’, for me its about getting recognition for the work I do. But I just feel like everything has ground to a halt now.
“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.”
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great.”
"But the really great make you believe that you too can become great"
My friends make me feel like this every day - Curt: my mentor, Tanja, Moa, Jane, Vee……I love you guys, you’ll never know how much you inspire me
“Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer.”
— Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince
“I don’t want to be famous, I want to be successful. I want to have an accomplished career filled with a variety of roles and challenges. I want to create and inspire others to create. Fame is not a goal for me. Yes I want to be recognised, but recognised for what I have achieved. I have so many big dreams, many would say are unrealistic, but anything is possible if you want and work for it hard enough. Everyday I am inspired and motivated by the people around me. People I communicate with, be it actors, friends, strangers. You can find hope and encouragement in everyday life, you just have to open your eyes and broaden your mind. Think positive, BE positive.”
— Michelle Cox
It might seem safer to follow you head, but that could lead to sadness and regret, you can always follow your head after you’ve given your heart a chance
Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.
