The Wrong Kind Of People...
Well someone might say, "Hey great choice. One word of advice, be prepared for some long hours and a very demanding schedule. It's a tough path to follow but if you want to do it...just be ready for all that comes with it. If you're up to there challenge...go for it." That's honest, true while at the same time supportive.
Whereas someone else might say, "Wow a doctor? Really? Man that's gonna be tough. You'll spend a ton of money on your education and most likely have a ton of student loans which will take you years to pau off, not to mention the liability insurance. I mean what if you fall into a medical malpractice situation? Heck...you can do it if you REALLY want to, but if I were in your shoes...I'd chose something else."
Here's the thing...they're NOT in your shoes. Do you see the difference in the second persons "advice"? They don't want you to succeed at your dream. They're doing everything they can do to make becoming a Doctor look horrible.
Sometimes it's hard to spot but one thing I know...if you feel weird or "bad" after speaking with someone...trust your gut. Chances are that's not the kind of "constructive" advice you want to apply to your goals and dreams and subsequently not the kind of person you want in your life.
I do my best to surround myself with like minded people. Forward thinking, positive individuals who want everyone around them to succeed. The other kind of people...they just create noise to try and distract you from your goals. So with noise...I usually turn down the volume or turn the channel.
We'll be filming new episodes from New York City in just a couple of weeks. I'm going to bring on some pretty cool guests from the not only the entertainment community, but the areas of fashion, sports, finance...you name it. After all it is the Big Apple, the melting pot.
