Most of us have the practice of making and declaring goals, down pat. Where we falter is with success. Many people have written and said many things to motivate us towards success. On social media, I’m guessing that you can find an endless supply of memes, with inspiring quotes typeset atop awe-inspiring images. The one thing that I’ve heard through the noise, that resonates with me, is finding your “why”. The author and motivational speaker, Eric Thomas, speaks of this as an ingredient for success. He’ll ask you “what’s your why?”. Businesses do this with a “mission statement”. They know why they exist and what keeps them on their path towards success. Individuals can use some of that focus.
If we’re looking at the sacrifices that one must make to be successful in any pursuit, it’s no wonder that so many people give up. If you have a strong collection of reasons “why” you are sacrificing, it might just push to you succeed. What’s my why? Read on, my friends.
Several years ago, I wrote a script called “Field Training” featuring a character I called “Money Robbin”. He was a parody of the Tony Robbins style of sales guru and motivation speaker, taken to a ridiculous level. He’s back now and he’s added an “s” to his name. That’s not all; He’s redefining ridiculous.
“Field Training” didn’t go so well, as a short film, the first time around, but I’ve learned a lot since then. I always liked this idea and I’m excited to jump back into the role and the project.
If you thought you’d have to wait for us to finish shooting the short film to get your Money Robbins fix, then you don’t know Money! Here is his reintroduction to the world with info on how YOU can be a part of the experience. No, this isn’t a crowdsourced funding request. Keep your money; We’ll tell you how you can help after the video!
