Be water my friend
I was scheduled to do my first commercial in October. It was a huge deal for me. My agent broke the bad news to me about two hours ago that the deal fell through. So I'm feeling sad and disappointed. I'm doing my best to find the bright spot. There has to be something right? I love this quote from Bruce Lee and made me think of how I need to see this.
"Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend."
