"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Patton Tells It Like It Is

My dear friend Phoenix wrote me:
Take out "comedian" and substitute in "actor/actress" and this is not only one of the most inspiring things you'll read all day, but also follows up nicely with your "Own Your Talent" blog post you wrote a few weeks ago. Solid stuff and it will make you grin! ♥
And here's the accompanying link she sent: Patton Oswalt's Keynote Address at Montreal's Just For Laughs 2012.

Read all of it. Especially if you have a smartphone. And especially in the summer. And even more especially in December and January.
