This is a question I get asked a lot, I understand, it’s natural. Most people are supportive, they want to chart your journey, they don’t want to miss out on all the things pertaining to your growth, experiences and success. The question “what’s next” is in fact the same question I ask myself daily. Over the years, I have learned how I operate best and now I lean more towards this question with a light of “possibility” and “capability” rather than with a shadow of “out of my control” and “uncertainty”. I have come to accept that some things are impossible to know, to plan, to predict or to even be concerned with. So with that in mind we should not worry about those things.
William Ralph Inge’s original quote may have evolved over the years to “worry is the tax on a debt you may never owe” but it is beautiful and poignant. It reminds me to focus on the here and now, supporting another pioneer of positivity; the great Tony Robbins who said “How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed to”.
I have many goals, aims, passions and dreams that all connect to the same core value, as an artist and human being, I am dedicated to telling stories that inspire, encourage positive thinking and fuel our constant drive as humans to evolve and be better. The journeys within these stories, the experiences the characters must go through, coupled with the emotions we as audiences feel, allow us a momentary escape from our own reality. A moment to reassess what can change and what is truly possible. Stories allow us to dream, offering respite from reality but more importantly inspire us to stop hiding and to seek greatness.
What’s next?? Next is actioning every step possible in that direction. Maximising each day with the productive mindset. I will try, I will fail, I will learn, I will grow, I will succeed.
