I got a few reality checks today. As much I hate to admit it, life isn’t exactly perfect and you can’t mold it to what you want no matter how hard you try. Yet at the same time I’m absolutely grateful for everything that’s been thrown at me.
My motto this year was “Command and Conquer” and in line with the Tiger Year, I needed to be fearless in my approach, take risks and keep trying no matter what. I ended up working successfully in 3 countries and gloating sorta came naturally too. But I haven’t been doing this for very long and so I don’t think I should be tooting any horn just quite yet. I still need to hone down my skills and stop getting intimidated by those who are more experience, better this, more that.
I think its easy to be complacent when things are going well and to go with the flow but that is when everything will start to go wrong. I need to be more pro-active with my work and seek things that are above and beyond the call of duty. I expect that of others and I should also expect that for myself. I’ve been focusing on trying to stay relevant when it comes to publicity, media, PR and getting my name out there. (Its pretty shameless sometimes) But I should really be focused on my craft whether it may be acting or hosting. I have a few major gigs lined up and this is definitely the time to step up my game.
While I still have a few days to muck about before being slaughtered with work-I’m trying to find more efficiency with my schedule. I oversleep, overeat and overlaze (yes i just made that word up) without much discipline. I look at it this way, if i’m not hard on myself, who else will? Whether steep or shallow this learning curve of success is, I still gotta go thru it and I’m gonna make sure I’m much more prepared next time!
Wish me luck! 🙂
