Luck is when preparation meets opportunity, they say, but I honestly think that some people (myself included) are just blessed with extraordinary luck. I can't count the times where I had to pinch myself, especially opportunities created through comedy. I have been legends and performed with people I watched as a kid and have spoken to truly amazing and inspiring people. People who were voted the best in their fields and truly inspirational folks (authors, actors, athletes, World Series champs!) know my name. Insanity.
That being said, I know there are days when I don' t feel lucky, like when I audition for a part that I know is perfect for me (i.e. playing a lawyer on TV) and I don't get it, or when someone else gets an opportunity that I believe I would be better suited for. Ultimately, all I can do on my end is be prepared for anything, in case that opportunity arises where I can show off my skill sets, whatever they may be. #lucky #careerchange #formerlawyer #comedy
