Is that you, Elvis?
Tom Connelly as Elvis
The shiny jewels and gems on his black jacket glimmered in the sun as Elvis walked towards me on the street. I felt star-struck, even though I knew that it wasn’t the real Elvis (or was it?).
I stopped him and asked for a picture, and he was kind enough to go along with my questions as I asked him if he gets paid for being an impersonator. Replying that he does in fact get paid for his events and handing me a business card, I realized that I too, can get paid doing whatever I wanted to do, as long as I actually put all of my wishful thinking into action. Sometimes, you just have to stop thinking, and just do. Non-thinking can be especially helpful for the periods of time when you are thinking. For the next couple of months, I’m going to consciously do more and think less, but always remembering to reflect on my actions at the end of the day.
All it took was a simple stranger on the street impersonating a famous dead celebrity to make me realize that I can make my own dreams a reality. Thank you, Elvis, thank you very much.
