Let me give that no thought
Didn’t matter what the teacher or the coach or the parent was asking us to do. My hand just shot up. Usually before the question was done being asked.
What can I say? I wanted to participate. To be part of the experience. Everything was just another chance to dance with the universe.
And what’s interesting is, as an adult, that inclination hasn’t waned. Especially when it comes to work. Because I’m so profoundly grateful and enthusiastic and enriched by even the tiniest opportunity to contribute and create value, that anytime someone is willing to pay me money to do it, I raise my hand. I pull the trigger, ride the bullet and call whatever I hit the target.
Making this movie was me raising my hand. Answering the call to adventure.
The point is, we shouldn’t have to talk ourselves into opportunities. Feeling fully alive is always on the other side of saying yes.
What is the opportunity that’s going to pass you buy if you don’t act on it?
