What I tell myself everyday.

To all the people watching, I can never ever thank you enough for the kindness to me, I'll think about it for the rest of my life. All I ask is one thing, and this is.. I'm asking this particularily of young people that watch: Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism - for the record it's my least favorite quality, it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. I'm telling you, amazing things will happen." - Conan 'O'Brien

Reminder to self.

An interesting talk with a ex student today introduced a different perspective and an insight to the current frustration I am facing. Actually for the lasst few years.

I should not force people to do what they do not want. No matter how much I felt it is the case. I can voice my opinion and that is it. 

I should not feel responsible or frustrated for the inability for the students to not get job. They had a choice to come learn animation. Neither should I should not crush their dreams.If they want to do it, they will. If you invest or measure your success to the accomplishment of your students and they do not succeed, that becomes a burden on yourself and them..On yourself mentally and it takes its toil physically on you. . Besides that is just having low inferior complexity combined with a Messiah complex.  That is actually a very self-centre and selfish way of thinking. Scary shit. Everyone has to be responsible for what they going to do with their life and they should know best

Let Go. Teach the best that you can to the students.  Treat them with enthusiasm and positivity be happy for what you have. Anger and frustrations get you nowhere except more frustration. ENjoy the process. Look on the bright side. 

Really just be glad for what you have and not let worry dictate what you  do. INstead aim for what you want to do and focus on it. Take little chunks and trus the process..
