Faith: Knowing You've Got What it Takes

It's so important to know what you have to offer the world. Thought is crucial to development. Thoughts become things and what you believe about yourself has everything to do with what you do and who you become. In "Think and Grow Rich", Napolean Hill includes this amazing poem. Read and really think about the meaning behind it:

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a person's will-
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man
But soon or late the one who wins

Making It in the Entertainment Business

As an established writer and producing working in Hollywood, I can tell you that landing deals and getting representation is 99% business and 1% artistic endeavor. In Hollywood, it's about high concept, knowing you have a hot idea, creating buzz around you as the writer, producer, or actor, knowing what your strengths are and branding yourself around those. If you don't know this coming into the game, it's an uphill battle which is why I love to work with artists. I love to help my clients formulate their strategic plan for achieving the results they're looking for because I've gone through almost everything they could possibly come across and I pass onto them the knowledge and wisdom I've got so they can go into a room ready. Everything from who to call to how to pitch to what to wear to how to book soap work to finding and getting the right agent to taxes... You name it, I work with clients on it. So... If you need a coach who's going to motivate you, promote you, believe in you, assist you with branding and packaging YOU, and help you develop goals and IMMEDIATE ACTIONS, and hold you accountable for them EVERY TIME, The ROI Coach is the right coach for you!
