Asking for Permission is Asking for Rejection

We’re living in the most exciting time in the history of the world. I was just working on a project in photoshop and had no idea what I was doing. Within 30 seconds after a google search, I had my solution.

I have instant access to everything every human has ever learned. More importantly, we have access to connect with anyone in the world. As an entertainer this is the most exciting thing for me. There are millions of people at this second scouring their computers for fresh entertainment. Consuming content faster than ever.

Not very long ago, if you wanted to entertain people in any sense you had to wait for someone’s permission. Whether you were an actor trying to make it in hollywood or a musician trying to get a record deal, that was the only way for you to reach the masses. Those days are long gone. The biggest stars today are people creating their own fan base.

What do you have that you’d like to share with the world? You’ve got a computer to post a blog, you’ve got a piece of plastic in your pocket that has more technology than we had when we went to the moon and you’re playing candy crush.

No one’s going to give you permission to do anything. And if you do ask, they’ll probably say no anyway.

What are you going to do today that someone said you couldn’t do?
