Now they're calling me

For years, I’ve tried to get the attention of the rich and famous. Whether it’s writing fan letters or attending events where they’re likely to be at, I’ve done the non-stalker approach. The reason for this is if they take the time to acknowledge me, then I would feel like I am important in their eyes. Simple enough.

But I never think they would want to talk to me out of the blue.

So, it comes as a surprise when my phone rings and I don’t recognize the number. As it turns out, it’s the star of one of the top TV shows around. He’s asking for me and is following up with a couple of details on the idea I pitched his people for a project I’m managing.

He’s very pleasant and polite and I relay the details about the project. We even exchange phone numbers. What I don’t tell him is I’ve been a fan of his work since I was a tween and have even met him a few times before (of which he probably doesn’t remember because he meets a lot of people in his line of work).

What I find amusing is that I've wanted this person to acknowledge me for years, to tell me that he's also a fan of my work (although he has no idea what I do) and that we should work together one day. Funnily enough, that's exactly what happened.

This is what I have been harping on at my friends for years and they sneer at me: We create our own reality, focusing the power of the mind can bring you results in anything you want. I've done it myself a few times and now, so have you. Well done!
