So you have this little film called Star Wars, and you're sure it's going to tank and tank badly. You have so little faith in it that you're willing to basically write the picture off in order to spare yourself some losses. Then -- against all of your perceived odds -- the feature gets released and goes on to become one of the most revered Science Fiction and Fantasy films of all time!
I always keep this story in mind when I'm told I shouldn't shoot for the stars, and I think each and every one of us should as well. Don't let one single solitary voice ever tell you that you can't achieve greatness because -- so far as reality is concerned -- that's only the opinion of one single solitary voice. And those have been proven wrong too many times to count.
As always, thanks for reading ... and May The Force Be With You!
