From our interview the actor and martial artist, Alex Ziwak, and I have carefully selected 12 Insights that you can, hopefully, draw inspiration from. Many of these are useful for everyday life, no matter what you do, or who you are…

  1. I’m not afraid to change and sometimes change is for the better. 
  2. That’s what I tell people – do student films. Just like in the martial arts, you don’t start off as a black belt, you have to take the steps.
  3. I learned a lot by watching these different people: how they act on set, what they do, what they do to prepare and so on and so forth.
  4. You don’t want to beat yourself up, but you can definitely improve and learn from your past.
  5. I always tell the students, “If you want to achieve your goal you have to persevere.”
  6. I do try to dress like the person I’m auditioning for.
  7. I remember where I came from.
  8. I suggest, whoever your companion is, that they be supportive of you, because if they’re not, it’s like an anchor: it holds you down. You should help each other try to achieve.
  9. Don’t let anybody take away your spirit and your dream, but then again you have to respect what they’re doing, to be supportive.
  10. It keeps me centred, it keeps me focused. It keeps me on the right track, on my personal bearings, my indomitable spirit and not wanting to give up.
  11. Be positive. Don’t think negatively. Don’t be your worst enemy because you’re telling yourself, you’re not good enough, that you can’t do this, are not cut out for that.
  12. I like to exercise and workout too. I find that to be very therapeutic for my mind.
