I’m super exited at the moment I just got my hands on adobe premiere and it’s installing now as I’m writing this. Just the idea of shooting vlogs and editing them from my personal computer is getting me pumped up. If everything works out I’m going to posting a horrible video with this blog where I stumble on my words, choake every twenty seconds and even mix concepts up and I’m doing this all because of today’s subject Pro-activity a.k.a. the art of embracing everything and still going forward.
Two years ago I was working on a project and I was kind behind the rest of the group which caused me to have to spend a lot more nights working on my project than the rest of my group. After one of my presentations for the project one my teacher came up to me and asked me if I was the type that let things just come to me and handled them then instead of nipping it in the butt. Back then I didn’t really realized what she was trying to say because she was in a hurry, but now that I think about it she was talking about not being pro-active enough in situations where I need to be adaptable. When something needed to change in the process of making a project and I didn’t know what to do I would just mope around instead of embracing the fact that something changed and move on.
If you’re not satisfied with the way your life is now this one of the most essential trades you have to possess. A lot of people complain about the situation they’re in or blame it on others, but if you think about it how does that help to improve the situation. Even if others have the blame for your situation it is important to embrace it and move on. This is also the reason a lot of people say stuff like everybody that is rich must have done something illegal in the past. The act of being pro-active means putting in willpower and changing who you are is difficult so it’s easier to just blame other peoples fortune on things like that. Embracing everything also applies to non-tangible things like emotions. Next time you’re in a position that’s not in your favor instead of complaining about it think what could I do to improve this situation. If you strive to master the art of embracing everything a whole lot of things you wouldn’t think are possible become possible.
In the spirit of embracing everything I’m going to put vid underneath this blog containing one of the bloopers of the first vblogs I ever shot.
