Taking Back Your Power

Happy Writing by Mitch Santell

There appears to be a lot of Americans in 2018 who are mentally, spiritually and emotionally ready to step away from the “victim mentality,” that has been so common over the past eight years and are now willing to take responsibility for their actions and their life.

Our society needs this trend. The shift is significant because it creates an environment of creativity, action and positive change.

Jen Trinque is a certified life coach and author. She loves helping her clients change their lives by changing their thoughts. According to Jen Trinque, she suggests the following:

Here are the steps I suggest taking:

1. Identify the people in your life from which you suck energy. Examples are people you try to get to praise you, give you words of love, compliments, sympathy, etc. Let me say again, it’s great to have a supportive web of friends and family, but there is a certain feeling of ickiness when you’re manipulating others to get something from them in order to make yourself feel better.

2. Start taking note of the exchanges where you’re creating or changing the energy in order to get something from another person to boost your own ego.

3. While you continue to note examples of you giving away your power, the power to feel good, to other people, start making a change. Do this by creating lists daily of why you are wonderful, lovable, and worthy. Picture yourself enveloped in a beautiful cloud, or a big, shimmery bubble, from which only love can enter and exit. Protect yourself from other people’s words and attitudes; this only leads to unhappiness leaking into your life.

4. Make the shift, permanently. Honor yourself and the power you have over your own feelings of self-worth. If your dad doesn’t tell you you’re the best or if your boyfriend doesn’t tell you you’re beautiful, tell yourself. You’re the only one who has to know it or believe it, anyways. Do not stop making lists of how wonderful you are or keeping up your protective bubble any time in the foreseeable future. You need to start taking care of you.

We have amazing power we aren’t even aware of. Often from the time we’re young we’re taught to reach to others to feel better. It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, when you’re filling yourself up with love and goodness, you can’t help but attract even more love into your life! Start taking back your power today!

You have to be willing to make these changes now otherwise a lot of energy vampires are going to steal your dreams, soul, and passion. Taking positive action is about stepping away from bad energy vampires.

When I meet people I want to work with I have to make an assessment right away as to if they are a psychic vampire which is the following:

Energy vampires drain positive energy in many ways, such as:

* Intruding on your life, ignoring boundaries and privacy (energy vampires don’t think of you).

* Making big deals out of nothing. Energy vampires are often called “drama queens” because they can easily turn a broken nail into a Shakespearean tragedy.

Negative energy spreads from everyday events.

* Complaining constantly about their partners, jobs, children, bad luck, and illnesses. Energy vampires like to vent.

* Criticizing your hair, appearance, job, children, partner, friends, and pets (energy vampires aren’t positive).

* Not taking “no” for an answer. Energy vampires don’t consider your needs.

* Being unrelentingly negative. Their negative energy is relentless, and energy vampires drain your positive energy by encouraging you to be negative, too.

* Blaming everyone else for their problems (energy vampires don’t take responsibility).

Responsibility Gives My Life Meaning

Reflections On Life by Mitch Santell

There is a phrase that I love to say; it’s one of my platitudes. “When your life is in crisis, you find out who your friends are.” In 2006 and 2007 I had the biggest scare of my life. What was it? My wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, and it turned my life upside down. It had a more profound meaning for me because I was a child raised by two parents who both had cancer and my Dad beat his first cancer at the age of 24. In a future blog posting, I’ll post my Father’s backstory, and I know it will inspire you as it has thousands of others throughout the world.

The point is after the diagnosis I watched as a lot of my family, friends and business partners ran for the hills. Out of over 3,800 contacts in my Rolodex, my best friend of 40 years and his wife showed up to partner with me and my Mrs. to get her well. On August 25, 2017, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of my wife being cancer free. The truth is that what inspires me most about my Mrs. is that once the tumor was over, she didn’t want to ever talk about it again, it was like it never happened.

Now I fast forward to 2018. Wow, how time flies. Yes, I am a Father, I raised four children who are all grown now. My youngest daughter suffers from Aspergers and has taken more time, resources, love and compassion than the other three kids combined. In 1 percent to 3 percent of Asperger’s patients (yes it’s on the Autism scale), there are additional complications with an adult Asperger’s child, and I am going through it now.

The reason I share all of this with you is not for sympathy; I share it with you because I know that there are others out there who are suffering and for me, it has been this responsibility that has made me a better person, a better human and a better producer.

You are always welcome to write to me if you have a story to share, need feedback or a resource. My email is mitch@afterhollywood.online (Yes you will have to copy and paste the text into your email program). <grin> Think of AfterHollywood.Online as my daily confessional as a producer because there is no one reading this but you!

Make it a great week and remember that you have strength in you that you have never even tapped yet and you know it’s true!

Why Blogging Matters

Inside My Mind by Mitch Santell

One of the most common blog postings that I read on a regular basis is why the “blogger” is not “blogging” Listen, you set up a blog because there is something deep in your soul that wants to get out. True or true? There is something that you want to share with the world because you want to “tilt the planet!”* (*Tiling the planet is a term that I got from Clif High who is an expert on Predictive Linguistics).

You may think that your point of view does not matter, but it does to more people than you know. The internet has an algorithm for it. Our news feed, our internet advertisements, and everything is controlled by this.

Question: Are your thoughts your own or are you merely re-stating someone else’s point of view?

Answer: You are blogging because you can’t or won’t agree with anyone’s point of view so each day you have to write.

Respect Someone Leaving You.

Recently I had to move past a psychopath. Only by staying out of the line of fire, space allowed them to walk away. Their absence has felt like a gift. It is so funny how only through quiet after the chaos that you appreciate this messy chapter in your life is now over. Peace is a beautiful thing.

BEYOND THE END

There is no greater blessing than someone automatically walking away from you. You might regret the moment now, but it turns out to be one of the best transformations after a while. They take their way to cleanse your life. Always cherish their absence and respect their decision. 🙂

Relationships, Family & Your Legacy

Reflections by Mitch Santell

This eight-minute clip of Jordan Peterson has some of the most profound advice that I have heard in a long time as it relates to marriage, family, divorce, commitment and being connected to your life’s purpose.

Camille Paglia and Christina Hoff Sommers Discuss 3rd Wave Feminism

Something discovered by Mitch Santell

Make yourself a fresh cup of coffee or herb tea! This dialogue between Camille Paglia and Christina Hoff Sommers is profound and thought-provoking! OMG, is America now the new Rome?

Check out this clip, I have deep respect for both of these feminists as I was raised by a 1st wave feminist, my Mom!

Can we admit the truth? In the grand scheme of things, sexual relations between men and women has never been worse.  

Guess who is now in the closet? Heterosexual men and God forbid any of us straight guys to have the nerve to flirt with a woman!


Although 97% of the population is not gay, there is relatively little cultural support for heterosexual institutions (family, motherhood, fatherhood); roles (masculinity and femininity); and life events (courtship, marriage, birth and child rearing.)

Although building a strong family is probably the purpose of life and key to happiness for most, this knowledge is kept under wraps. Millions of dollars are spent to make women find careers but not a dime to become mothers. On the contrary, women who devote their lives to family are criticized.

If you search “heterosexual” in Google, you will get 16 million citations. Search “homosexual” and you get more than 20 million citations, pretty good for 3% of the population. (“Lesbian” got 10 million.)

Per capita “homosexual” received 100 times the citations “heterosexual” got. “Homosexuality” (10.7 million citations) got roughly 11 times the citations of “heterosexuality” (990,000.) Per capita, homosexuality got 3500 times more citations than “heterosexuality.”

The fact that the word “heterosexuality” is in rare use is a shocking illustration of the cultural vacuum the non-gay majority inhabits. Our majority “default” status doesn’t explain it. In terms of cultural support, non-gays are being starved or as I will suggest later, poisoned.

Another example. There are 21 times as many used books listed with the Advanced Booksellers Exchange under the keyword “homosexuality” as “heterosexuality” (24233 to 1154). Per cap this means there are 6750 references to homosexuality for every one to heterosexuality .

The Smallest Moments Mean The Most

Written by Mitch Santell

Today was one of those fantastic days where it all went wrong, and it all went perfectly. Today felt like a long week. Have you had days like that? There is a flow to life if you can tune into it. Every day I still see the good and kindness in people. The ones I mainly respect can move through the world without a “chip on their shoulder.”

You do not see the world the way the world is, you see the world the way “you are.”

Yesterday as I was driving around my local town running errands I noticed that my wife’s van was barely starting over each time I turned on the engine. I did not know if it was the battery or the alternator. One of those errands included making a simple deposit at my bank.

As always, I make it a point to be kind to people I meet in public. Kindness is my style, and I have been this way my whole life. With each person I met at my bank branch I smiled warmly and just went about my business.

the word can't
Respect yourself first and stop acting like a victim!

When I returned to the van and tried to leave, the car was dead. One of the young men I had smiled at immediately offered to give me a jump-start. Grabbing a jumper cable out of the trunk of his car, a woman in a brand new Lexus SUV starts to pull into the parking spot between our vehicles.

Quickly and quietly motioning to her, I motioned for her to roll her window down but she refused. Again, I smiled and mouthed as best I could “to please move over to another parking spot so I can start my van.” You could tell she was upset and my feeling was it had nothing to do with me.  My kindness helped me move past her anger and allowed me to start my vehicle.

The young man kindly helped me start my van. Afterward, as a small way of thanking him, I handed him a 20 dollar bill. He smiled, seemed very grateful and went on with his day.

By nature, I always look at how to accomplish the most with the fewest steps. Later this same day, I had to purchase a brand new battery. While I never told my wife of the incident that happened earlier in the day, the man who sold us a new vehicle battery and installed it did so with a smile on his face and a happy heart.

small moments
Small Moments Mean The Most

Most people will show you their best self when you show your best self. When they can’t show their best self, be the bigger person and be kind because it is the right thing to do.

My take? Be kind, stop acting like a victim and be the best version of yourself!

Steven Soderbergh Films on an iPhone

Commentary and Amazement by Mitch Santell

Throughout my time on this Earth, I have enjoyed watching the shift in technology. Always an early adapter, I’ll admit that my iPhone 7Plus is my very first iPhone just because I didn’t want to become an iPhone Zombie. These days I keep my iPhone 7Plus handy, but it’s Messenger and FaceTime that keep me sane on my iMac using a full keyboard.

Steven Soderbergh is onto something with his statement that he would only shoot on an iPhone. Here is the official trailer for Unsane:

If you have ever doubted that you could make a full-length feature film on an iPhone, think again, it can be done.

Here is a clip I shot on my iPhone 7Plus right in the heart of Hollywood. The clip you will see is only 51 seconds. With the right editing, the possibilities are endless! A special thank you to Filmora, an easy to use video editing package for the Macintosh.


(Side note: If you do not need the extended features of Final Cut Pro, filmora is a great alternative. Why? Sometimes less is more)!
