Knowing that life is short, and the time to transform into the top version of myself is now, The Coach will propel into 2016 with a renewed discipline, dedication, and determination on implementing on how he will discover and live his passion.
January is the month for new beginnings, fresh starts, and optimistic approaches of what might be accomplished in the next twelve months. I’ve never been one to dwell on what didn’t happen or reflect on the past year, failures or successes, but I’ve always moved forward to focus on how The Coach improves by taking daily steps towards his goals.
January marks a couple of significant life events for The Coach including one in regards to my current vocation. It becomes the month that The Coach recognizes as the beginning of his second life career, this irrational profession as an actor.
January of 2016 marks five years since a whim from a suggestion to submit to a television show opened up new passions and the ability to once again share his unique blend of talents, wisdom, strengths, skills, and creativity with the world.
The adage in this business is “It takes 10 to 20 years to become an overnight success” is probably an understatement. Actors lose their focus, change directions along the way, become discouraged for various reasons and most of those who wander away never return. Those who remain committed know it’s not their talent that translates to achievements.
So “Bring it on 2016” and Follow The Coach on his ride.
