You have the life you perform.
The aim of this seminar is –
To help you get your head out of the pop culture nonsense that you have an immutable self. You have as many selves as people you know. Does this mean that you are playing a role? No, it means that at any time in your life you are not playing a role, you are already deceased. Some of the roles that you play in your life will be chosen by you (if you are courageous enough to think that this is your responsibility). Some you will fall into, and some you will be sucked into by the people you imagine to be “friends.”
So the aim of this seminar is at least manyfold: one has to do with the roles you let yourself be sucked into. Or how you choose your roles because of your purposes in life. Any role that you find yourself in requires you to play that role superbly or to get your indifferent bum out of there. If you are playing the role that other people think you should be playing, do you know anything about puppetry? Because that would be what you would want to learn about. In other words, who is pulling your strings? — You or “them” or “it”? FYI, nobody ever made it to Broadway by playing herself or himself.
Your role in this seminar is to make this the best seminar your cohorts have ever participated in. If you miss the mark, try at least to be in the ballpark. Newsflash! If you are not making a worthy contribution to the people around you, you are going to be living in a world no one ever wanted to live in. But that’s just for openers. What you can’t teach yourself is something you ain’t going to learn. If you don’t perform the life you want, no one else is going to do this for you except, perhaps, your mother and why would you trust her at this point?
The mantra for this seminar is –
The life you cannot perform, you cannot have.
The how of this seminar centers on –
How your imagination unleashes your performance.
How desire plays such a small part – hope none.
How the inhibitors may outweigh your intentions.
Why you have to give up who you are to be who you would be.
How being addicted to your expectations may be your wrong path.
How the world conspires, and you conjure.
Why knowing what you want doesn’t do it.
How you can fail no matter how “sincere” you are. (Charlie Brown.)
