Maybe you are an unknown filmmaker. Maybe you want to “make it.” Well as many of you know, I am a big fan of Harry Houdini’s. The guy who no handcuffs could hold and who was always plugged into marketing himself.
There is a lot to learn from him. Although there are indicators that he wasn’t always the nicest person, he knew what he wanted and went for it. One of my favorite inspirational quote by him is:
“My Brain is the key that sets me free.”
If you are an emerging filmmaker this could be could be a phrase you might want to take a look at on so many levels. The only thing to stand between you and opportunity is your mind. If you are thinking thoughts of “I will succeed,” you will succeed. If, on the other hand you are ruminating on “I am a nobody and have no chance,” you are much less likely to achieve your goals.
