Kevin Smith’s Trick for Being Whatever You Want to Be

“There’s a trick to being whatever you want to be in life. It starts with the simple belief that you are what or who you say you are. It starts, like all faiths, with a belief–a belief predicated more on whimsy than reality. And you’ve gotta believe for everybody else, too–until you can show them proof. If you’re lucky, someone starts believing with you–first theoretically, then in practice. And two people believing are the start of a congregation. You build a congregation of believers and eventually set out to craft a cathedral. Sometimes it’s just a church; sometimes it turns out to be a chapel. Folks who don’t build churches will try to tell you how you’re doing it wrong, even as your steeple breaks the clouds. Never listen.”
