TRANSCRIPT of Live Recording
"Thank you for making it happen.
No matter how close you were to not or doing it I just congratulate you and I admire you. You have proven yourself to be extraordinary. Because it's very ordinary to give into resistance, obstacles, discomfort, inconvenience...taking a risk when you don't know. But sometimes if you go beyond to the other side of the unknown you will find magic and possibility.
...one of the really critical choices that I made that opened all kinds of doors...later I'll talk about the fact that...there's so many reasons that people don't or aren't able to do something. And really, at the end of the day it doesn't matter. What matters is that you do it, that you follow through. Because you have no idea what one choice will turn into down the road and it's almost frightening to me that had I'd made another choice I may not have had the career that I had. It was a choice when I went to the agency and they said, "You have really clean and good work, but you need to build your book and come back in six months."
...and me going back and I could say... I mean I don't know what the rest of your life is going to look like but I really feel like you showing up today is like my going back to the agency.
He said that when he told people that, they never came back. Had I not gone back I would have never worked on Hoodlum (film). Had I not worked on Hoodlum I would have never met Stacye Branche and Lunye Hodges who connected me with Michael Jordan and R. Kelly. Had I not worked with Michael Jordan and R. Kelly I would have never gone to LA. You know it was just like a domino-effect. That's just really the difference between the average, or the so-called-average people and the people who are extraordinary. So just always remember that when you get an opportunity...yeah opportunity, just follow-through with it because you just have no idea...like I think probably the worse thing in life would be to look back on your life and say "oh I didn't do that so I didn't get that over there." So just be people who are unstoppable. Don't let anything keep you from moving on to the next level. Like whatever it is. Certainly don't let money keep you from things, don't let insecurity...just always in your mind....you're a superhero. Because you're a superhero here [pointing to head] first."
