:Random Thought

I just watched The Social Network… I know, it’s been out FOREVER! Never mind the fact that i’m watching it bootleg via Playstation 3. I’ve been too busy working on making my millions then to watch another man prove how he made his billions.
Biggest contributor to his success is… the fact that he knew he could be successful.

Thoughts?! What did this make me think? How did it make me feel?!

First thought is that sometimes there’s nothing wrong with not being as “smart/cool” as ‘them guys’.
Alot of disfunctionality in all of the intelligence = making me nervous.
Just because you go to the best school/have the best job doesn’t make you the best person.
Respect your team, you can only go so far on your own.
Stay true to your passion. If you have something going… and you know it can go… get it there.

You are extremely friendly and down to earth even with all your success. How do you do it?
thank you for saying that. I have been very fortunate and blessed with all opportunities and advantages that have come my way. I am also a go-getting and a go-giver at the same time. I believe that success comes to those who are the most prepared for it. I always want to help others realize their passion, dreams and calling. if i can instrumental in your success, i feel successful also.

Wilshire Fine Arts Theater

Since coming to LA, I have had a lot of time to find out what’s really good here. Some of the greatest resources have been Craigslist, LAist and I found out about this seminar and hopped on the 720 Wilshire and got there in less than 30 mins.

I went to check out the screening of “Sympathy for the Devil” – a documentary of Michael Levine talks at the California State Prison (population 2.1 million) and join them for the Q&A afterwards. The Levine Communcations Office is one of America’s most prominent PR firms. Celeb client lists and always in the company of the ‘best of’s. You can also sign up for his insider e-zine that is designed to influence influencers here. Michael’s story is interesting – he has no formal education, an alcoholic mother and a self taught success story.

What do you all successful people have in common? Michael Levine talks about the 3 magic O’s

1. OBSESSION: Positive addiction to your goals, act if your life depends on it (it does!)
Decide -> What do you want the most and what are you willing to give up to get it?

2. OPTIMISM: Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier
This is true – 4 motivated workers is more efficient than 20 unmotived ones

3. OBLIGATION: A sense of responsibility, accountability and non-flakeyness to oneself
Whether you believe you can or cannot, you are both right.

This game is not fair, this game is not easy but this game is winnable.
