How To Combat Shyness

Saturday, February 11, 2017

Russell Brand has rapidly become a great source of information and inspiration for me. I've always appreciated his outlook and sense of humor as a standup comedian, and he has always been very intuitive and fascinating. He is an articulate, eloquent and well informed individual, who happens to have had a crazy past. But that is why I have such a huge admiration for him, because he really turned his life around. That's when you have to acknowledge someone's desire and motivation to get back on their feet and make their life better.

Russell may come across as loud, brash and vulgar, but that's part of his on stage persona. He's also very insightful, introspective and observant about the world and its happenings. Some people brush him off as a news source, but I would stand up for The Trews as a great resource. He also responds to his viewers' questions and gives thoughtful advice and responses. I truly admire him and I hope to meet him one day, just to say "thank you, you are wonderful."

On a side note, it's funny that this episode's first question is "how to combat shyness?", because my first short film that I wrote and directed is called Shyness. It's still in post production and I have every intention of finishing the film this year. Luckily, I work in an environment that has taught me how to finish a film (amazing!), so I will absolutely finish it. No excuses. And that's a story for another time.

Now go out there and combat your shyness, because shyness is nice and shyness can stop you, from doing all the things in life you'd like to.
