I believe that the voices of fear, both from without and within, can only be dispelled by trusting the voice that comes from the heart. Be still and listen to it. If it speaks of love and compassion for others, for the world itself, it just might be the voice of God – or a reasonable facsimile. If, however, it snarls with fear of the unknown, fear of losing what you have or of not getting what you want, then it just might be the voice of Rupert Murdoch – or a reasonable facsimile.
What I want to argue for is not that we should give up on our ideas of success, but that we should make sure that they are our own. We should focus in on our ideas and make sure that we own them, that we’re truly the authors of our own ambitions. Because it’s bad enough not getting what you want, but it’s even worse to have an idea of what it is you want and find out at the end of the journey that it isn’t, in fact, what you wanted all along.
With non-professionals, there’s a lot of time you have to allocate to getting what you want with them, but also you cast based on who they are, to bring out their real personalities. So it’s less about working on character and more about just getting them comfortable in front of the camera to be themselves, and understanding the process.
Instruction for life: Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson. Follow the three R’s: – Respect for self. – Respect for others. – Responsibility for all your actions. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
