Why You Do What You Do

"But if you're going to do what you want to do, you have to be prepared for the difficulty because you're going to be doing something that people aren't gonna be expecting you to do. You're going to be hitting challenges; you're going to be hitting resistance, even within yourself. So unless you're prepared to destroy yourself and come up from the ashes again, then go live somebody else's life." -- Carlos Celdran

From featuring artists, to cosplayers, to designers, entrepreneurs, and street performers like Carlos Celdran, the episodes of the web show "Why You Do What You do" are for anyone that has ever had a silent hope inside them to follow a dream a little bigger than they let others know. Very much like the people behind the series, my friends Julo, Marco and Nicky are all pursuing their different passions, and come together as one to make these shorts.

I think this is my favorite episode. I just love what Carlos Celdran said in the end... Anything I've ever been involved in that I loved made me feel that way -- destroyed, in pieces, in ashes -- until the moment I discovered it was actually worthwhile! :-)

Thank you for posting this link, Vicky. :) I'm always battling with myself as to why I chose this path I'm taking. And this video's message just gave me the answer I was looking for. :)
