  2. Someday I will have to release my version! It’s only about 3 minutes long, and it lacks sound. But I did use special effects! I used the “backwinding” effect to superimpose ghost chickens on the scene.

  4. Re: Positive thinking, “The Secret,” etc. – yes, you absolutely have to be realistic, but like you said, we often limit our potential way below what we’re actually capable of doing.

    The most important thing, though, is that the positive thinking part is only the first step. You have to use that positive thinking to take action. If you said, “I want to be the world’s greatest tennis player in one year,” then sat on the couch and played video games for a year, it won’t happen. (Well, maybe Wii Tennis might help or something, but still…) But if you had that same mindset, then spent every moment of every day doing what you needed to do to become the world’s greatest tennis player – got a mentor, hit the courts for hours a day, changed your diet, read books on the sport, etc. – your chances will definitely improve. You might not become THE world’s best player in a year, but you’ll be better than most. (Maybe in 2-5 years, though, if you kept at it!)

    Conversely, if you did all of those things, but told yourself, “This isn’t going to work, I’m not going to become the world’s greatest tennis player.” – then you have a 100% chance of not becoming the world’s greatest tennis player. That much is certain.

    Think about that guy at that radio conference. He told you what to do – you went and talked to Sean Hannity. He dissed you. Why? Well, several reasons, I’m sure, but you also approached it with the mindset you’ve been carrying that celebrities don’t like you. (TMBG, for instance.) That thought probably affects your action, your body language, your choices, the way you carry yourself, etc.

    In summary, you need the right mindset, and take the right action, and that’s how you achieve your goals. (The fact that you are a fantastic internet radio performer is a testament to that!)
