Picture this: a guy who seemingly has a great life, feels alone, lost, and down right broken.
It’s not a fun picture, but it’s the reality for so many people who feel like they’re just spinning their wheels.
Well, I can say, I’ve been here, and pretty recently as a matter of fact. I feel like it’s something many 20 somethings go through for the first time and we feel like we’re broken when in fact, we’re simply human.
I have a great career in radio, I have an agent who sends me on a plethora of auditions, I have an amazing personal life with people who love me unconditionally and cheer for me every step of the way, but yet, somehow I still felt like I wasn’t enough.
That feeling alone caused a snowball effect in my life where I went from the positive happy person that I am, to a somewhat of a ‘negative Nancy.’
I began lashing out at people close to me, I would cringe at the thought of hanging out with my friends, and I felt like I was starting to dip into a bit of a depressing period.
I didn’t know what to do so I began reading, researching, and talking to people.
I quickly found out that I wasn’t alone, and that, in fact, many people are going through this, or have gone through this exact same thing.
So what did I do?
I simply stopped looking at life as “half empty” and instead, “room for more.”
More growth. More love. More friends. More me-time. More.
It was the best thing I could have done.
I kid you not, the very next week, I went on an audition and I booked it! My very first acting gig as a signed actor!
Now, maybe it’s a coincidence, or maybe I willed it to happen, but either way, the blessings have continued for me.
It truly is amazing what a positive mind can accomplish.
“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.” – Winston Churchill
