There are a few days that bring much of the population of the earth focusing on a single thing. Of course it's impossible with the diversity of the world for everyone to focus on one thing at one time (especially with all the channels on cable TV!) But there are still a few events and days such as this. Christmas, of course comes to mind, New Year's Eve, certain sporting events and also, in the world of entertainment the night of the Academy Awards. You may not know this, but as a young person I did lots of acting and theatre. Theatre and acting was and still is a passion for me. Being a trained actor, I always watch the Academy Awards every year to see which actors and films have been honored for their work.
I believe the people who we honor as stars, have taken the idea of becoming someone who is starring in their own life very seriously. And it is precisely because they have taken that seriously that we in turn see them as stars. Because they see themselves as stars…
Now, of course we know of the stories of actors and actresses who have not led the healthiest of lives. That is not what I'm talking about here. I'm talking about how they see themselves and because of that, what has manifested in their lives. The point is they see the star in themselves. They have that belief about themselves. They sense the unique and beautiful qualities that only they possess. They see this first and then they allow their star to shine. Then we see it too…
How much are you embracing your inner Star?
How much are you starring in your own life?
Are you waiting for the curtain to go up, so you can finally step into the light?
Are you rehearsing for the time when you REALLY need to shine?
Is fear holding you back from being the star of your life?
Do you have a block against shining your light in the world?
Do you believe that the people who shine are self-centered or selfish?
Well, I am here to remind you that the movie of your life started the day you came here. The film crew is always filming. The most incredible thing is that you are not only the star of your own movie. But you are the director, the casting agent and most powerfully…you are the writer.
If you don't like the role that you've written for yourself so far in life, rewrite it and change your role.
If you don't like the cast of characters you have hired to be in your life, change the cast and audition new ones.
If you don't like that your life has become a drama and you thought that it would be more of a romantic comedy, rewrite your story…
There is no time to waste in living the life your heart yearns to live. The movie has already started, but you can always create the most incredible and exciting of plot twists you choose from here on out!
In my training as an actor I was taught that “There are no small parts, only small actors” which means that whatever role you are playing, you are meant to look at that role as being the star of the play. I was taught to look at it like all the elements of the story and the relationships revolve around the character that you are cast as. When an actor does that, they bring a depth and uniqueness to the character, a character which could have meant nothing at all in the scheme of the play as a whole, but suddenly is noticed and stands out to the audience. As opposed to the actor saying “Well this is just a five lines and it’s not the starring role” then the actor just walks through the part and no one even remembers them.
You have cast yourself in your life as a certain role. You can either cast yourself as an important and vital role of the whole film of your life, or you can cast yourself as a minor walk on character. Your choice…
The time is now to step out into the light and be the STAR you came here to be.
If you start now, by next year you may hear “...and the winner is…YOU!”

(This excerpt from the book "Say Yes if...30 Days of Positive Questions to Transform Your Life" by Max Ryan)
The Universe or Source is always giving us clues to what will make us happy. One of those clues is people in the media who inspire us. When I say media, I mean writers, actors, philosophers, political figures and the like.
There is something very profound about the people who inspire us. First of all, they can remind us of our highest values. They also can give us incredible information as to which direction to move in in certain times in our life.
You see, the ego self will always tell us that those people are "special". Those people are in some way better than you are. Those people got where they got because they are different then you. Well, that is a lie. That is something that we set up in our own minds because we have deserve-ability or worthiness issues which come from our fearful ego. I am here to tell you that all of those people that you admire and who inspire you, have the same blood flowing through their veins as you do. Those people have the same capacity for creativity, intelligence, love, compassion and success that you do.
In my opinion, I believe it is extremely valuable for you to actually meet in person the people who inspire you. If there is any way possible, (and all things are possible) for you to meet one or all of the people who inspire you, I greatly encourage you to do it.
What this will do for your believability that you can be where they are is immeasurable. I know that I have since I was very young sought out and met many of the people who have inspired me. What this is done for me, is that it has shown me that no matter how high of a pedestal they seem to be on, they are actually no different than myself. They have made choices and worked in a different way, yes, but it proves to me that I can be just as successful and give to the world in the ways that they do.. and more. It makes me know that my dreams are possible. When you know that your dreams are possible, then the floodgate to your manifesting them is exponentially increased. I am all about getting the odds of our success, joy and peace in our favor in any way we can!
If you have been following me for any length of time, you know that I have a few people that inspire me for many different reasons. You also know that I do reach out and meet these people. Today I encourage you to think about the people who inspire you, and if they are still alive do whatever you can to meet them. I know it might seem like an impossible task with some of these people who inspire you, but you can meet them…
For example, this past week I got to meet a woman who I've admired, followed and been deeply inspired by for many years. She touched my heart with her writing and her life. There is no other way to put it, except that I felt like I "knew" her from the moment I attracted her into my life.
Her name is Carol Drinkwater. And being from England and living in France, you may think it would be impossible for me to meet her. Also, the fact that she is well-known, may have put barriers in my way of ever meeting her. But I've had her in my vibration for very long, and because I have been focusing on her for so long, the opportunity came up that she was in Los Angeles giving a talk and I got to meet her. Yayy!
Not only did I get to meet her, but I asked her if she would be on my radio show and she agreed. How does it get any better than that?
So, today my interview with the amazingly inspirational Carol Drinkwater will be aired on my show "The Magic of Life".
I know that what Carol has to teach about life and passion will ignite your soul and inspire you too!
The show will air LIVE
