Today on set, it occurred to me that most people would credit talent and skill to be of the highest significance in order to have a consistent 'successful' (whatever YOU make of that word) career the insane film industry. But there is one quality that I believe rises well above the other two in its value:
*The established set of attitudes held by someone.
Facing rejection, disappointment, ups & downs, lack of stability or consistency, criticism, etc. doesn't stop no matter how 'successful' a person might be in their career. The only control one has... is their mindset, their perspective, their attitude.
