Every time I go out there, I win. Every time I finish the task that I've set before myself, I win again.
David James Elliott, actor
A few months ago, I wrote to our daily newspaper and let them know I would be interested in reviewing books for their Sunday feature. A couple weeks ago, I heard back from them saying they were interested. I never expected to hear back and didn't expect to actually be featured, but yesterday, I was. So, if you are a new reader, I thank you for coming to check me out. You found me because I was willing to take a risk and this time it worked out.
What risk have you been putting off? What task do you need to go after? You can't win if you do play, so go out and win the race today!
David James Elliott is known for his roles in the TV series JAG and CSI: NY. As a teenager, he quit school to follow his dream of becoming a rock star with his band. It didn't work out and at the age of 19, he returned to finish high school. In college, he auditioned for roles and eventually moved to Hollywood to work with Disney. When that fell through he persevered and landed small roles and guest appearances until finally 10 years later was selected for the TV series JAG. That series lasted 10 years and he has continued to work ever since.
