    Last night I was feeling very frustrated about where I was at in my career. So I started to search youtube for inspiration and ran across this clip. You see Tyler I been followinging your story while I was incarcerated on a 135 year prison sentence, so after studying screenwriting I was paroled after almost 12 years and convinced a former factory worker turn filmmaker to produce a script I had wrote to inspire at risk kids. For awhile I took the film around here locally, and just knew I would make it, but here I sit broke, but not gonna give up, thank you sooo much for these inspirational post cause you didn't have to do it, God is good!

    Yes, being focussed is a way to bring fruition to a dream by watering it well. When you focus a laser from a broad beam, to a refined, narrow beam, - it yields a lot of power! Thanks for the inspiration.

    I listen to your comments on How to be successful and it really did me a lot of good. I know I have to plant a seed and do my research and open up my upscale consignment shop, but I know I have to search for the resources I need and the knowledge to put it all in place. I worked in retail for 20 years and I want to be able to now do it for myself what I have done for the company, I came out last year and it was a good move for me. Thank you for all the advice that you post it helps to keep me motivated. Keep the Have and Have Not's coming.

    Every time I watch this I am brought to tears. Today I sent you an email about my new Fiction Novel OH HOW THE MIGHTY FALL being turned into a movie and as I clicked to other areas of your page I came upon this video again. I usually find it on YouTube or other pages but I always find it when it's needed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You are truly an inspiration.

    1999 must have been the year things started to change. I was stationed in Italy and I heard about your plays in 2000 !!! Italy !!! How awesome is that?! I hear you, Sir, and I understand ; that recurring feeling, that recurring idea, the dream you are too embarrassed to speak out loud even to yourself. I will continue to water this seed with training and practice... Thank you so much!!!

    I plant. I water.I know that neither he who plants, nor he who waters is anything, but GOD, HE makes it grow. I write. I act. I teach.I sing. I dance. I am a born performer. Yet, every time I get close to success, someone or something blocks me. Earlier in my life it was my EX-HUSBAND. (He finally admitted it and apologized for not letting me go to that audition in California in the 1980's. I had just finished West Side Story with Jada Pinkett before she was Smith). It took him 21 years to say he's sorry! Then, during my teaching career, I was part of the SPAR TEAM and I promised the ladies in the group we were going to be a force to reckon with in that school. We formed our ROYAL DIVAS CLUB and everybody wanted to be in it. We had the worse students performing at high levels academically and creatively. We turned the "bad girls" around, as promised. The principal perceived that we had too much power/influence. He sent us to 4 separate schools the third year. (What people do when they feel threatened)! Finally, I was sidetracked by an illness. I acquired a disease known as SARCOIDOSIS. (Yes, it's the same disease Bernie Mac and several people I personally know died from). It is still rare and not enough is being done to combat it. It gets me down. Yet, I'm not out. I finally trademarked my company name, DRAM'MATICS and my stage name, DRAM'MA. My focus in 2014 will be to get out there, perform my poetry, tell my story, and publish that book...be it a book of my poems or my personal story. This GOALDIGGER of DMV is still cultivating her seeds in B'MORE. Like you said, Tyler, "You got to believe!" thanks for your encouragement.

    divine connections are necessary in every aspect of success and taught thru scripture but they come thru attracting them as you sow seed, prospecting and sure activity. Brother in the book of mark when Christ told the parable of the Sower of good seed he literally told the disciples that if you don't understand this parable then you cannot understand the others. Wow! !!! What was so important about this parable? If u got a worthy message you must be sowing seed daily and itll fall on many different grounds. Remember even when it fell on good ground some produced 30 some 60 and some 100 fold. Our job is not to determine who will but as an ambitious sower the right ones show up and you must identify them
