VENICE


I am currently reading David & Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell.

”Giants are not what we think they are. The same qualities that appear to give them strength are often the sources of great weakness. ”

Much of what we consider valuable in our world arises out of (these) one-sided conflicts. Because the act of facing overwhelming odds, produces greatness and beauty.

MOVIE: WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS


ARE WE EVER GOING TO BE BETTER THAN THIS?

Cole is an aspiring DJ who spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James, who takes him under his wing.

I might be criticized by my next statement, but what do I know. Right? I have never taken DJs seriously. I don’t think it’s talent. i don’t think it’s a craft. BUT I WAS WRONG. Before, I thought they are just playing music that people dance to, music that people can listen to while they do other things.

BUT, BUT, BUT again, I was wrong. — Playing music has a science to it. As a DJ, you have to study what makes the heart beats faster, at what BPM is the most effective, the anatomy of the body – a lot that I won’t understand. that only a DJ would. Respect. 

I want that for myself – I want something to be passionate about. Something that I love, Something that would occupy 20 hours of my day, Something that people would run to me to ask questions, Something that is hyphenated across my name.

I love movies that gives you the hope that DREAMS DO COME TRUE. and the reality that WE ALL CAN BE BETTER FROM WHERE WE ARE NOW. WE CAN ALL DO BETTER. WE SHOULD ASPIRE ON BEING THE BETTER VERSION OF OURSELVES, EVERYDAY. 

THOUGHTS: How would you rate your success?

I’d say this is perfect at this point in time. I’m feeling frustrated and depressed and it’s good enough to know that I’m not the only one who feels like this. 😀

BOOK THOUGHTS: GET BACK UP – YOU CAN DO IT BY JOHN MASON


An excerpt from the book, ”You can do it. Even if others say you can’t” by John Mason.

Learning From MistakesThe fact that you’ve failed is proof that you’re not finished. Failures and Mistakes ca be a bridge, not a barricade to success.Mistakes are just feedback. It’s not how far you fall but how high you bounce that makes all the difference.

The best way to go on after a failure is to learn the lesson and forget the details.

Failure is the opportunity to start over more intelligently.

Success consists of getting up just one time more than you fall down. So get up and go on.  

Do whatever that pleases you.


There is only one success. It is to be able to spend your life in your own way and not to give others absurd maddening claims upon it
