How big is your potential? Final chapter.

……….Right. You will be doing two things: The first is proving there is demand, so we know we can command. The second thing you’ll be doing is letting Ebonywood Studios know that you are actively behind us and are on the journey too. (It is a fact and a very important one to keep in mind, that most Black British people do not write into TV stations like the BBC and other commercial channels. Maybe it’s because you’re thinking what’s the point, no-one’s gonna listen. But you would be dead wrong. In the ratio of how ratings are worked out, one letter represents a thousand people. But that’s another discussion, for another time).

Right now it’s important that you go into HMV and ask for the film, Jingle Blues Jingle Bells. If they don’t have it in stock, order it. If the shop assisants give you an excuse not order it. Complain, because there is no reason why you can’t have it. None. Pay for it and reserve it. It will come to you and what you give will come to us. Some Shop Assistances in some branches have been quite negative towards our product. They can make it seem like HMV’s Head Office forgot to tell some of the branches that there’s a new Black British family film in the mainstream.

We know it’s not impossible to achieve our goal…….But it will be so much easier with you.

How big is your potential? Part 2

The largest mountain in the world

The way to answer this question is not to try to know the answer but to understand the question itself.

 

It is not enough to say “the question has no answer”, because that disrespects your will, your passion and your hunger to learn. And with that kind of attitude, you will witness your own drive denying challenges that would make your life a growing and worthwhile experience.

 

Anyway…..The question is meant to take you to the very limit of your understanding.  To make you admit (if you’re honest to yourself), that you don’t know and could never know. Will never know (on earth anyway), the answer. 

 

The question is intended to make you and your intellect (no matter how high it is), bow down in humble submission to THAT QUESTION (call it what you wish), THAT QUESTION is greater than yourself.

 

Your intellect and logic will tell you, the Almighty means Almighty and nothing is impossible, but the question seems to deny the Almighty is all powerful.

 

So you say, “How can the Almighty create a rock that The Almighty cannot lift? How? How? How?

 

THAT – is beyond you. You know the Almighty exists, because the question does, but the answer.  HOW?, is beyond you and remains with the Almighty. It is not your business, or your life’s mission to know how.

 

Your job is to BE.

 

How does all this apply to where we’re going?

 

Pursue your goals without fear and in total confidence. There is no dream or vision big enough to exclude you, us.

 

Know whatever you want to do, is possible, but will require action. What action, depending on your own level of ambition, could at times feel like a grey area, but keep yourself open and be willing to take some.

 

How? Is not your business, but faith is, and will determine how soon you will arrive. But enjoy the journey.

 

At this point in time, we (Ebonywood Studio Productions) have placed our faith and focus on the community.

 

There are now many of you tuning into these blogs.

 

Please think about what has been written here the past few weeks and watch this space closely over the next few weeks of this New Year.

 

Let us see if we can achieve a miracle. Smile. 🙂
