Weekly Motivation: What Have You Done Today to Make Your Dream Come True?

Every week I’ll be posting new videos as part of my Weekly Motivation Series to help the #IFHTribe along their filmmaking or screenwriting path. We all need some help, guidance, motivation or inspiration on our long journey in this crazy business so I hope these video help in a small way.

If you like this please share it with your friends and inner circle. Keep on hustling and never give up on that dream!

Am I, do I deserve this? Ask yourself the question, do you deserve what you’re going after? Don’t be afraid to ask that question because when you ask that question, you’re gonna get an answer and that answer might not be what you want but that’s the first step into figuring out what you’re going to do to get to your dream.

Let me ask you another question, how much time do you spend on you?

In the last 30 days, what have you done to truly get to your dream?

To truly achieve that goal that you’ve been going after?

How many books have you read? How many online courses did you take?

In the last year, what new skills have you acquired? What new tools have you put in your toolbox?

What kind of investment have you made in you? You see fear, is what stops a lot of this. Fear, as it tells you, you don’t need to learn anything new, you don’t need to read books, that’s a waste of time, you don’t need to take that online course, you don’t need to make any sort of investment on you, you’re good enough, why?

Because you’re afraid. You’re afraid of figuring things out. You’re afraid of success. You’re afraid of a million things, I don’t know what’s inside your head. There are so many things that you could be afraid of that’s stopping you from moving forward. But you need to get to the root of it and just like a weed in a garden you need to yank it out. Yank it out of your life. As all it’s doing is poisoning the rest of the garden.

Fear, lack of vision and low self-image is why people don’t go after their dreams. They don’t believe that they can do it. They don’t believe that they’re worth it. And I want to tell you that you are.
