As I continually STEP forward on my journey, it becomes increasingly obvious how important it is that I CONTROL my own DESTINY. That I keep myself in a position where I, and only I, pull the strings. If not.....SPLAT! To embark on a huuuuge journey like mine requires constant monitoring of current steps in relation to distance from your FINAL DESTINATION, your vision, your dream, your destiny. Decisions need to be made. Some will be wrong, some will be right. But it is soooo important that I monitor and CONTROL, all that I can. Sometimes it is not possible to control everything. Sometimes you require decisions to be made by others in order to move forward. You give others CONTROL. Danger. If they don't pull your strings.....SPLAT! Let me give you an example.
As you are aware I have created a lot of exposure for myself. I was in full control of how, when and where that exposure took place. I have laid a very valuable foundation where a lot of dots have seen me on my 'rock bottom' on National television, radio and print, as well as being the number 1 story on the internet. Next STEPS are to take advantage of that publicity. I have written some songs, some of which will be chart toppers. I KNOW. But I do not want to become a rock star, I want dots to pick up on MY STORY, my autofuturebiography. I have sent a proposal to the Mayor of the Gold Coast City Council, and the Divisional Councillor for Surfers Paradise. The proposal is to have an interactive Kids Concert on Surfers Paradise Beach. It will be a family day to remember and I will get national and international exposure for the Gig. But I need Council approval and support. I knew there would be a problem, however, and I highlighted it in the proposal. Having worked in Local Government Administration for over 15 years, and attended a million Council Meetings myself, I knew about 'red tape' and the inability to make quick decisions. So I asked the Mayor to "not be normal" and to give me a decision so I can move forward. Of course, as expected not even a reply or courtesy of a 'We have received your proposal......". Quite pathetic really. Maybe they think that HOMELESS men aren't real people and don't deserve courtesy! Anyway, THAT'S what happens when you lose CONTROL. What do you do?
GET CONTROL BACK! I won't SPLAT for anybody.
I'm glad I have taken back CONTROL. I don't like giving it to others to pull my strings.
The concert will now go elsewhere and the song "Nursery Rhymes" will go to NUMBER ONE. It has to. I'm pulling the strings again.
....IT IS MY DESTINY.....
