You work hard. You can do what you love for your entire life...and never ever consider it a success because you didn't make any money, or you didn't make a good living doing it. Or numerous reasons why you think, there is no reason to continue doing things you love.
Let me tell you something. Ive been doing comedy, entertainment, for as long as I can remember, and I have yet to make a single penny doing it. Why do I continue you ask? BECAUSE I love it. Because I get a chance to AFFECT people around me. I get a chance to make someone smile just ONE more time before they go to sleep. Every time I hit the stage, or go out to the streets and talk to people or hear that someone else has denied one of my movie scripts, I walk away with a new fan, a new friend, or a new person that wasn't in my life before. Because something I said or wrote changed they way they saw their lives......that is reason enough to continue every single day. EVERY DAY.
Change the world, one laugh at a time. Thats my slogan, thats my saying. Thats my goal. I will NEVER EVER STOP. Its too important now. What you people do, changes everything around you! Look around you, see how you have changed the world...one laugh at a time...or one form at a time...or one goal at a time....or one smile at a time....or one quote at a time...or one inspiration at a time...or one service at a time.......your changing worlds...your changing lives. That is the only reason to continue. Does it feel good to change lives?
I bet it does.
My name is Jason DiMare. I am a stand up comedian, a writer, a screenwriter, and a cook....I have very small amounts of friends, very little romance in my life...no children, and a family that lives far away from me. You know what? I will go out there, every single night, every single day, and change someone's life today. I will tell a stupid joke in the streets of the city, to get ONE person, to smile one more time then they were going to today. With that one smile.....I can make a difference in WORLDS...I can make a difference in life, I can make my world, a better place.
Keep it up everyone. Do it because you love it. Do it because you make a difference! Do it because, you feel better, when you know you've changed the world around you.
The Big Whopper.
HERE is some advice.
LIVE EVERY DAY LIKE IT'S YOUR LAST...
Now, don't just SAY "Live Every Day Like It's Your Last", actually do it. Don't say it right now...then wake up tomorrow at 9 am, shut off your alarm clock, eat a bowl of honey nut cheerios, put on your ties, get in the car and go to work. Dont eat a ham sandwich at noon and put mayo on it because you're "living on the edge" today...Don't feel like you lived like it was your last because you decided to go to bed an hour later tonight....after a night out with the girls dancing and binge drinking....NOT what I had in mind. Do something you normally wouldn't.
Go out there, AND CHANGE THE WORLD. Walk up to someone random, someone you've never met, smile, and tell them "IF YOU DIE IN AN ELEVATOR, DONT FORGET TO HIT THE UP BUTTON." I gaurentee you, you will change your lives. THEN, HAND THEM YOUR CARD and walk away.
