when it’s all said and done…this is my real life!!!

I just did what I think is the most bogus radio interview possible.  There’s no need to disclose the station or on-air personalities because their buffoonery will get no shine here.

One aspect of fame/celebrity that I’m learning quickly is the reality of being treated as someone without feelings.  As I cut the interview short, I wondered how it would’ve gone if I hadn’t actually used the principle of “Never Justify Your Behavior With The Wrongs of Others”  from Thank You and You’re Welcome to keep me focused.

Trust me when I tell you that for a split second, my thoughts went from “Thanks for having me on your show to discuss our book”…to “Uhmm, what did you just freaking say…I will punch you in your fucking face!!!”…to “I WILL NOT LET THESE JERKS WIN!!!”

I’m not against interacting with people who disagree with me…hell, I actually encourage it because it’s a great way to learn and become better. But to have someone put so much effort to get an interview just to incite a negative response is senseless to me.  It’s definitely a great misuse of time, which I feel is the greatest asset in life.

There is nothing I can do to get those 5 minutes back, so the best thing to do at this point is to chalk it up as a growth moment of what not to do again.

A message to all who are interested in interviewing me in the future…please don’t waste time attempting to provoke a negative reaction from me…instead let’s have a healthy, productive exchange of ideas that are based on good-intentions!!!
