Recently, Stever Robbins, host of "The Get-It-Done Guy" Podcast, wrote me about a blog entry I made back in June 2006. It was my first entry.
I wrote, "I have never let attractive and safe packages presented to me influence my decisions. To be honest, a "safe" decision usually scares me the most. Safe is boring, unproductive, and predictable. I just got back from a year of training at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) in a post-graduate program. This is something I chose for myself over a wide range of options most actors my age would have killed for."
It's been a while since I've thought about that summer. It was a ballsy move for me. Thankfully, it has worked out.
Stever contacted me because someone had written to him asking about pursuing dreams and when to give up on them. Stever interviewed me to talk about my experiences in New York City and how not giving up on my dreams has worked for me.
You can hear his thought-provoking podcast on the topic here
And my rather candid interview with him here
It was a pleasure talking to Stever. The interview came at good time for me. I needed to take some of my own advice! Having grand expectations and setting goals for one's self can be dangerous. You can set yourself up for failure. Instead, I believe in following your gut and constantly having faith in your dreams. I know with enough passion and drive, you can make things happen.
