Well I’m here to tell you that the only way things are going to change, personally or professionally, is if you make them change. I was listening to motivational speaker, Tony Robbins recently and he says that “we have to take personal responsibility for everything that happens to us.” He’s right because if you don’t you’re allowing what happens in your life, good or bad, to be dictated by someone else. We’ve all heard the quote “life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it.”
Keep in mind that all those “bad things” that are happening to you could be the push you need to take a leap of faith that could change your life for the better. I know people who have been pushed out of horrible TV stations only to land on their feet at great TV stations.
I know working in small market television can be hard and emotionally draining, but depending on your goals and how quickly you’re improving at your craft it won’t be long before you’re moving on to bigger and better things.
This is why I say don’t overstay your welcome at some TV station that’s taking you nowhere, there could be something better, no, no, no there is something better out there for you. You just have to find it. With the New Year upon us, there is no time better than the present to claim whatever it is you think is going to make you happy.
Happy New Year!!
I hope 2014 was good. Let’s make 2015 great!
