Transformational Tuesday

from the Michael J. Fox interview in the June 2011 issue of Good Housekeeping http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/family/celebrity/michael-j-fox-interview :

“You know, there’s a rule in acting called ‘Don’t play the result’. If you have a character who’s going to end up in a certain place, don’t play that until you get there. Play each scene and each beat as it comes. And that’s what you do in your life:  You don’t play the result. …

It took me seven years to figure out that I’m not at the result [of Parkinson’s]. I’m not at the result till the end. So let’s not play it.”   —Michael J. Fox

So you think you’re predestined by birth, genetics, racism, sexism, lack of schooling, etc? Don’t play that result; play your own destiny and see what you can create for yourself.
