The Hero's Journey in Hollywood (intro)

  1. 1. The  Hero’s  Journey  in  Hollywood  (Intro)  By  Peter  de  Kuster  www.theherojourney.com    Life  is  to  be  lived.  If  you  have  to  support  yourself,  you  had  bloody  well  better  find  some  way  that  is  going  to  be  interesting.    Katherine  Hepburn                                          “There  is  no  such  thing  as  the  perfect  career”  That’s  what  many  people  think,  and  it’s  sad  because  there  are  plenty  of  rewarding,  challenging,  and  fulfilling  career  opportunities  that  allow  creative  people  to  use  their  gifts  and  be  rewarded  handsomely  for  their  efforts.  Those  who  settle  for  less  than  the  best  simply  haven’t  found  the  right  job  –  yet.  You  can  have  it  all  when  it  comes  to  a  creative  career  –  if  you  know  how.  Katharine  Hepburn  knew.      The  fact  is  that  most  people  hate  their  jobs.  They  would  rather  be  doing  something  else  –  anything  else.  It  doesn’t  have  to  be  that  way.  What  if  I  told  you  that  you  would  never  have  to  work  another  day  in  your  life?  Would  you  be  interested?  When  you  find  the  right  fit  in  a  career,  it  no  longer  feels  like  work.  You  wake  up  every  day,  excited  about  how  you  earn  your  living.        
  2. 2. This  perfect  harmonizing  of  your  talents,  skills,  personality  and  work  style  creates  a  passion  and  a  desire  as  well  as  a  feeling  of  happiness  that  is  worth  more  than  gold.                                                            It  can  all  be  yours  if  you  will  read  this  travel  guide  of  Hollywood  and  applies  its  principles.      Finding  happiness  in  your  creative  career  is  a  lot  like  looking  for  treasure.  Using  a  map,  you  embark  on  a  journey,  an  adventure  in  search  of  yourself.  The  thing  is,  there  is  not  a  pot  of  gold  waiting  for  you  when  you  get  to  the  spot  marked  “X”  on  the  map.  The  buried  treasure  is  within  you.  The  pursuit  of  the  gold  (or  the  goal)  is  the  reward.  Because,  when  it  comes  to  a  career,  there  is  no  “there”  there.  It  is  all  a  search.  Enjoying  the  search  is  what  success  is  all  about.      This  is  the  age  of  opportunity  for  the  creative  heroes  and  heroines.  Innovation,  creativity,  entrepreneurship  are  gold.  Ridicule,  bureaucracy  and  tape  are  being  replaced  with  respect  and  rewards  for  the  clever  and  creative  person.  In  Hollywood  this  trend  has  been  around  for  decades  and  
  3. 3. is  being  followed  all  over  the  workplace.  The  work  environment  and  market  are  changing,  and  they  are  changing  for  the  better    -­‐  for  you.  Are  you  ready  for  these  times  ahead?                                        This  Commedia  dell  Arte  travel  guide  of  Hollywood  will  put  you  in  the  position  to  prosper.  What  parents,  teachers  and  bosses  might  see  as  problem  (sloppiness,  habitual  tardiness,  short  attention  span,  nonconformism)  can  actually  be  hidden  assets  in  the  search  for  work  in  a  rewarding  and  interesting  creative  career.  Intuition,  emotion,  divergent  thinking,  daydreaming,  thriving  on  chaos,  big  picture  thinking,  cleverness,  open-­‐mindedness  an  an  ability  to  play  and  have  fun  are  virtues  in  the  right  setting.      Even  so,  it’s  not  exactly  easy  to  built  a  creative  career.  You  have  to  be  able  to  deal  with  lots  of  rejection.  It  is  a  part  of  everyday  life  for  the  creative  person.      
  4. 4.                      There  is  also  that  funny  feeling  that  you  don’t  quite  fit  in  –  and  you  don’t.  Thank  God.  An  unconventional  person  with  unconventional  ideas,  you  are  often  seen  as  immature,  temperamental,  moody,  difficult,  distracted,  irresponsible  and  irrational.    The  truth  is,  you  can  be  your  wonderful  self  and  still  get  ahead  in  the  business  world  –  or  work  for  yourself,  as  many  creative  people  do.  Whichever  you  choose,  this  travel  guide  will  help  you  manage  your  career  using  a  story  (wholebrain)  approach  that  takes  advantage  of  the  way  you  are,  without  forgetting  the  way  the  world  works.
