Failing Royally

The lie
You will be a successful if:
You are good enough
You believe enough
You work hard enough
You ask enough

Then you will be successful.

I did all of that in my late 30’s and early 40’s. I failed – royally. I almost lost our house because I believed so much. I learned a lot. I realized that if you are successful, it isn’t about any of the enough’s in the list above. The key is to love life and to keep trying. One must realize that it is unrealistic to think that you will be the next top billed movie star. What is realistic is that you love what you do, and continue to do it. And making authentic/quality art has no bearing on how many enough’s you do.
