13185: A Mistake About Predicting Your Future You Can Easily Avoid

Hey there, hero!

We get comfy when we have a pattern to look at: we create a life for ourselves, we get into a habit, we get systems in place and we think that’s it.

It’s never going to change. What we have now is what we will always have, good and bad.

But is that really true?

Does what we have now somehow predict what we’ll have in the future? Is what we have now all we can expect for the future?

Absolutely not. Think about the completely random nature of our business. And how we are training to get better, working on new things.

I’m in the midst of a project right now that I didn’t see coming.

And that can happen to you…at any crazy moment.

  1. S usual, David your podcasts come to me at the right time, always.
    Thinking of how I started on the path that led me to VO Heroes…It seemed I was at a dead stop, not knowing where to go, if I could go, if I would ever be able to truly get paid for what I have always loved to do. I signed up for a free workshop about what casting directors want to see and that led me to you and these classes, the ACX Masterclass and a whole new world has opened up to me. It’s nice to be excited (mostly) about what could happen next as opposed to wondering if anything would ever happen for me again.
    I say this a lot and I truly mean it; thank you David for you and all that you do.

  2. The past is NOT prolog. Destiny is not predictable. You are not what you were nor will be. Change is not inevitable—one must work for it. If the future you see is not what you want take a different path.
