The list of questions below is from Benjamin, one of our Friends in Film mentorship program students. The power of doing an exercise like this, is that you become REALLY CLEAR about how to spend every waking moment of your time.
Most people live each day reacting to what happens to them. Instead of using each day to get close to what they really want.
Most people don't know what they really want. They're like 'It would be nice to be famous.'. But then they live their day in the HOPE of someday maybe that will happen. Taking no active and real steps to get there.
The thing is, it's all possible. but the PERSON YOU BECOME in the process of going after that THING, is what actually makes you that person. Does that make sense?
If you want to become famous… well, you're going to have to be quite an extraordinary person. Do you think that people who are extraordinary are waiting around HOPING that someone realizes they are special?
Nope. If you want to rock the world, you need to take massive action, measure the results, tap into the environment, make new friends that will get you there, stretch the boundaries for who you are everyday.
Oh yes, get out of their comfort zone. All the time.
If you're in your comfort zone, you know you're not moving forward. So get clear on who you are and what you want.
I've attached this list as a PDF so you can download it and write your answers on your own paper. DOWNLOAD PDF
And go after it, like a shark in a feeding frenzy…
