My friend and I were discussing how we wanted coffee last night even though the coffee vendor had left. Our other friend told us to go back to hospitality and get some. I had a security pass and she didn’t have a pass at all. I could have got into hospitality unnoticed, although I wasn’t supposed too. She could have too because we’ve known the festival staff for so long that no-one would question it even though we were just working artist merchandise. Because of this, our friend told us, “just go get it. You look powerful, act like you own the place and no one will bother you.”
And he was right. Not that we put it into practice then, he gave her a stage crew pass, but in general it’s true. You can have no clue what the actual crap you’re doing but if you don’t look unsettled and if you stay focused nothing can stop you. You have to keep your eye on the prize. Don’t concentrate on the surrounding circumstances, players, or scenery.
You have the power to make or breakthrough yourself. Find your anchor. Hold fast. Don’t let other people determine your success.
Wise words. Brad Pitt about his WIFE:
"My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get separated soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the MOST Beautiful Woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute. I gave her a lot of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much.
And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.
If you love her to the point of madness, she will become it.”
In every gentleman there’s a little bit of a rebel, walking like a saint but you’re dancing with the devil.
