Don’t give up on your dreams

31 10 2009

Some people may overwhelm you with negative thoughts. They may say that you won’t find a job in the business, that California has too many earthquakes or that you won’t be making money for a while after graduation. At least, these are a few things people have told me. I don’t let it get me down though. Yes, sure, there will be obstacles and hard times. There will be change between college and having a career too but that should be known. We all realize that college can’t last forever. We all realize that the economy is bad right now. We all realize that jobs aren’t guaranteed. What you need to remember though, is that your life is your life, filled with your dreams, goals, passions and desires. If you want to do something, then do it. Don’t listen to what everyone else is saying. Avoid their negativity. Most of the time, people say these things because they aren’t doing well in the business or they think there are no jobs or they may be jealous because television and film sounds so much better than the job they have. Don’t let it crush your dreams. I’m not letting it. I’ve wanted to be where I’m at now, a senior in college about to graduate and pursue a TV and film job, for many years now. I’m not letting anything change my mind or make me doubt my dreams and neither should you.

Everything will be okay. Work hard, get your name out there, make contacts, go beyond your comfort zone, fly across the country, find your available options, ask around, work a part time job, cherish your youth and stop worrying so much. You’ll be okay. Believe in yourself.
