Hollywood & Burning Bridges

Commentary To Make You Smile by Mitch Santell

Hollywood Sign On Fire

One of my favorite comedians on this planet is Benjamin Owen. Mr. Owen knows Hollywood so well that he burned all his bridges there and exited California. If you are a regular reader and follower of this blog you know my deep love for comedy and how it is used to get the truth out.

In our society, comedy is truly the one area left where you can speak the truth!

It is now June 3rd and I need to get off my lazy rear and update my about page.

In the meantime, here is Owen Benjamin’s current take on Hollywood which I’ll incorporate into my update on my about page later today!

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

Commenting on Brain Power by Mitch Santell

Start Mitching

Each day when you wake up, you get to make a decision. What is that decision? Today will be fantastic, or maybe I should have stayed in bed. (That is the decision). Your brain has millions and millions of neurons that are firing at all times. You can tell your mind whatever you wish, but it is still up to you.

One of the ways that I keep my brain calibrated positively is to avoid complainers as much as possible. Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to complain about it, but I am talking of the deeper connection we have with our soul.

You cannot control what others say or do or even think, but you can control how you feel.

Here is something that you may find of interest in your quest for a most positive future. How is that possible? By changing your thoughts now.


Negative people are almost always complainers, without fail. Worse, complainers are not satisfied in keeping their thoughts and feelings to themselves; instead, they’ll seek out some unwilling participant and vent. 

Undoubtedly annoying to their friends and family, these “Debbie Downers” aren’t to be chastised but understood. 

You see, we all complain from time-to-time. In fact, researchers from Clemson University empirically demonstrated that everyone grumbles on occasion. Some just do so much more often than others. 

Complainers generally fall into one of three groups:

Attention-seeking Complainers: People who seek attention through complaining; always dwelling on about how they’ve got it worse than everyone else. Ironically, (rational) people are apt to ignore outright the person rather than waste mental energy focusing on their negativity. 

Chronic Complainers: These folks live in a constant state of complaint. If they’re not voicing about their “woe is me” attitude, they’re probably thinking about it. 

Psychologists term this compulsory behavior rumination, defined as “repetitively going over a thought or a problem without completion.” Rumination is, unfortunately, directly relayed to the depressed and anxious brain. 

Low-E.Q. Complainers: ‘E.Q.’ is short for emotional quotient, and constituents within this group are short on E.Q. What I.Q. is to intelligence, E.Q. is to emotional understanding. 

These people aren’t interested in your perspective, thoughts, or feelings. You’re a sounding board – a brick wall. As such, they’ll dwell and vent at every opportunity. 

Is the Brain to Blame?

The answer is (mostly) “Yes.”

Avoid Dream Stealers

Observations by a Producer named Mitch Santell

There are people that you will meet along your path who are so cynical that you can feel it reeking off of their shoulders. These are “psychic vampires” and “Dream Stealers.” There is a great way to get them diverted and away from you. The answer is to listen to what their dream is and start sending resources to them. Another strategy is to kill them off with sympathy. Toxic people can’t stand kindness and will attempt to make you question yourself. Whatever you do, don’t fall into their trap.

Are you clinically depressed? Are you suicidal? Do you have suicidal thoughts? If the answer is no you are a fortunate person. As soon as you are done reading this blog posting, you need to go out and get yourself hot cocoa with marshmallows, or a root beer float or a chocolate Sunday.

My Mother suffered from clinical depression her whole life and had numerous situations that would trigger her.

Unless you suffer from depression, there is no way that you can’t go out and make something positive happen in your life.

We were built for struggle!

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!
