Illuminated Chronicles: Kevin Smith…Why vs Why Not?

Kevin Smith…yeah, Kevin Smith: our generation’s Spalding Gray. He drops some fantastic and inspiring dimes in this video:

He’s 100% right. “Anybody can do this.” And even though he’s talking about filmmmaking, it really applies to everything. Don’t be Weak.

Fear…fear is always gonna present, who cares.

Failure…good, fail a lot. Everyday if you can, put failure on your daily To Do List.

Doubt…again, who honestly cares. All that matters is the work.

Be insecure, be fearful…just do great work. Nut up, suit up and do the work.

Forget money…there’s more ways now than ever before to get money. Stop making barriers for yourself.

Sure the odds aren’t even in your favour. Again who cares.

Encourage Artists. Don’t be discouraged making your Art.

Have fun and keep fit.
