Gabriel Voss from Backstage / Unscripted talks about when 2011 was coming to a close, she reflected on the year that had gone by and asked herself where she should direct her focus in 2012. The answer that popped into for mind was simply...
Whatever it is that you are passionate about, chase it and don’t stop until you’ve acquired it. People will tell you that you can’t do it and will list the reasons why you shouldn’t try, but if you’re pursuing something that inspires you, it won’t matter because you’ll have that creative energy bristling in every synapse of your being. Have a vision, know where you’re going, latch on to those things that compel you, and unapologetically chase your dreams. Don’t let the lack of opportunities stand in your way. Take Harvey Dent’s advice and make your own luck.
