NEWS WAY PAST IN THE PAST
 

Thomas J Bellezza

Thomas J BellezzaWhat will you read in this newsletter? Oh, there are surprises everywhere. Like an egg-hunt. Can you find the monkey? Yes, a monkey! 

I don't do Easter bunnies, I do year-round monkeys! They do throw more poo than bunnies, but they are much better bridge partners! You are worthy and valued in life!

The following newsletter is a collection of thoughts from where my life has come as a child to a now 40-year-old cancer survivor. This month is my birthday on April 6th. In life, we get so few opportunities waiting around. So be proactive. And may you read this newsletter with a sense of self-awareness for yourself. That seeing my thoughts to ignite and motivate the passion in you to accomplish your dreams!  

I'm turning 40 on the 6th of April. Four decades have come and gone.

Thomas J BellezzaIt's nothing compared to my 70-year-old. But, still, every day is a new adventure. To be able to say I've survived cancer, hardships, and yet

I continue moving forward. Who I am and where I come from are up to me. Stand strong to your goals in life and know what you want. A year gets shorter as we age. But that doesn't mean you can't accomplish just as much! I remember when I was 10, 20, 30, and now I see who I am at 40.

When I turned 30 it was 2008. I was redefining my career choice from music to something more.

Thomas J BellezzaFor the next ten years, my life would see full new experiences and also a Life changing experience. I had goals and dreams to accomplished, and I did...

Some include, my first self-published poetry book, doing stand-up consistently, finished a first full-length musical album (Altayon), started acting and got consistently paid to perform professionally doing Shakespeare (Was my life goal to act and do Shakespeare), got my SAG-AFTRA union card, and I also watched my father battle and win against cancer.

Thomas J BellezzaThen, I had a chance to open my BBR Productions office, a year after I opened my theater for 3 years, then moved to Brooklyn, pitched multiple TV shows to major studios, became a daddy to a puppy, had an original play open to great reviews, performed as Hamlet, and got to play on stage with a bunch of my close friends, including Justin Hunt who I had not played on stage with since I was 27.

And I too fought and beat cancer all before my 40th birthday. 

Don't let anyone ever tell you that you can't do anything in life. That you should have a backup plan. You are capable of anything in this world. I'm a high school dropout with no college degree. You can do this life, the life you want to have!

Thomas J BellezzaYou can become your dreams no matter your age! Success comes at different ages. From Atlanta to Wakanda, 92 yrs old, actress Dorothy Steel began acting at 88!

Now for my next journey. This summer to around September, I am moving to LA.

This will be the beginning of my next adventure in life as my company becomes bicoastal.

I have a full business plan of activities in my hands. My goal is to help individuals bring reality to their dreams while also continuing to accomplish my own personal realities. Let the next chapter begin for me. May we see each other along the way!

Then their spouse is around so now they don't like anything you do because it makes their spouse yell at them later in bed. I say dance the night away and be your true self! Always do what makes you happy as long as you are not physically hurting other people. You have a right to express yourself in every way possible. What makes you happy might make others feel odd or out of place. Well, it is not their place to judge your life. Be FREE!

You need only take action leading you down the path to accomplish the dreams which fill your soul and fight to burst out!

Thomas J BellezzaI love how much my IMDb page has grown since 2009 when I decided to take my entertainment career to the next level. To be active in my journey to write, direct, act, and of course produce. One bit of advice I received growing up in this business was always own your material. Be your own boss. Because the producer gets the control, money, and opportunities to be a part of their field of interest. These opportunities are both for yourself and others around you. When you can open doors for others, doors open for you.

Thomas J BellezzaThe power inside us comes from a raw sense of survival. You have what it takes to make anything happen with a little effort. We once froze without fire and now can land on the moon. We as a people did that. Think of what we could do as a people now? All we have to believe in is those to are right, and those to our left. Our power comes in groups for no man is an island ready and able to take over the world. It is not about taking it over. It is about inspiring those to follow the lead and loyalty of a strong unity.

Thomas J BellezzaGetting ready for the holidays and opening my schedule for one last free seminar for this 2017 season. I have had time to film a couple of play through videos for a series of "Altayon" songs from the first album. A collection of a few helpful tips are scattered throughout this newsletter from this passing year. Since I've been editing my next poetry book, I really enjoy sharing some of the poems within it.

Passion and success go hand in hand. Passion helps push us forward to achieve the success we desire. To live the dream that we have had brewing in the pit of our soul since we could remember. Passion establishes drive and even with drive, we don't always find the road ahead as easy as we thought it would be.

Thomas J BellezzaSuccess wants you to accomplish your tasks but it wants you to work for it. There are variables to finding success and it begins with understanding the path. Be aware of each task and tool one would need to see their dream come to life. From before you take a calculated chance one must know what is in store.

You are worthy of every dream you have had since birth. Your life has value and what you feel and want is important to you. You deserve to find your yes in life and bring reality to your dreams.

No matter how old you are, it is never too late.

The "Altayon In The Raw" event went swimmingly. This will be a slightly long post for the love and appreciation I have for everyone involved in last night's event for “Altayon In The Raw” celebrating my one year anniversary of beating cancer as well as raising money to support cancer prevention and finding a solution to cure.

Thomas J BellezzaThere are few times in a person's life where thanking people is never enough. When words seem to be lost in meaningless value in comparison to what actions have been brought upon by others. To be a part of something bigger than life itself in an attempt to bring celebration to the forefronts of friendship, family, and love.

To begin with a list of people in my heart of hearts to thank would simply be a post dedicated to hundreds of worthy and well earned names of individuals I have boundless love for. As I would truly enjoy writing each person's name out I want to focus on a few individuals that decided to sacrifice both time and money in support of what we did.

These next people made Altayon In The Raw possible. They studied the music for eight months, flew, drove, and walked their asses to two insanely long rehearsals, bounced through stress, anxiety, and miles of time to get on this stage as a group and make music come to life. These guys below are beasts and earned every ounce of my respect.

Thomas J BellezzaAl Qually went out of his way with limited time to take on two of the tunes we played last night when in reality any other person would have said no and yet he said yes and kicked butt. He is both a kind and talented individual. I was honored to have him upon the stage.

As a friend, colleague, and a powerful addition to my life, Alan Stentiford is someone I have been getting to know over the past two years. He was spectacular as Dr. Jekyll last night against my Hyde. And when I decided to do Confrontation he was the first and only name on the list for me.

Andrew Callahan, what can I say. I have been trying to get this kid on stage with me for over ten years and it only took beating cancer to do it! And you know what, it was worth it. Cause he is a good friend, and a loving soul. Kindness is a part of his truth and I appreciate him for being next to me on stage.

Thomas J BellezzaJD McGibney, or as I call him JD McSexy! He's the reason I even did this show. He is the one that placed the idea in my head to celebration my one year anniversary with a show ten years since I was on a stage musically. I love this kid and beyond thankful for our brotherhood and growing friendship.

And of all the people involved last night it was something of a reality blast to the heart when Justin Hunt was to my left again. It made sense that in this moment one of my dearest and oldest friends was on stage with me again. He is truly my family and I love the guy like a brother. A soul of souls.

To my team and my right hand man Marc Chouen, thanks for handling everything while I was stressed in the back room getting ready! You are a savior. Actually you are the Chouen and only! Plus having my BBR Productions Inc, Team filled the place with love and it made my soul smile!

Thomas J BellezzaA huge shout out to the Prevent Cancer Foundation for being a great support of our cause and being beautifully kind in every way with this event. And to The Triad NYC and Michael V. Doane for really going out of his way to see this event happen. He was everything a good person should be and more.

To ALL THE PEOPLE who had been supporting my recovery over this battle of mine to those who came out last night to see the show... You are forever a marking in my mind, body, and spirit. It is love that moves the world and you have moved me through this world. Beating cancer was much easier with all the passion I felt from everyone. From my parents; Angela Bellezzaand Frank L Bellezza, to my Brother Angelo, driving me to my appointments and helping me every second of the way when and where they could. I love my family greatly. And to those who send me cards, social media wishes, and all the texts. I love you.

And to Scott Stanger and Beatrice Sniper for coming out to take photos. Both amazing photographers. But more importantly, Beatrice and I have known one another for years beyond years and to see her there really brought the world to life. I am grateful her and I are still friends!

Thomas J BellezzaGOD THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE I WANT TO THANK ON HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL EVERYONE, TRUST ME YOU ARE ON THIS LIST YOU ARE IN MY HEARTS AND YOU ARE MY WORLD!!!!!!

My friends, people in life, please always know I am here for you even in my busy silence know you have me close by and always ready and willing to help when and where I can. We must know the value of living through the act of doing. I am grateful to be alive for one year when so many others have fallen to this horrid sickness. It is my job, and the job of other survivors to remind the world that there is always a chance with love. And our lives are not pointless but filled with meaning. Touch a soul with your words, your actions, your purpose. Peace in everlasting harmony!

Asking a mentor strong developing questions are powerfully inspiring when you learn things like; Are there mistakes you have made? Knowing where they have failed then found solutions will motivate anyone who has fallen before. Learning what goals would they like to accomplish this quarter gives a wonderful direction to your now and future ventures.

Be brave to ask for what you want in life cause that fear in you will hold you back. Besides, everyone is equal, even your idols. We are all people with lives, families, the ability to succeed and fail. Embrace them as equals so when the time comes you can let other present the terms so you can set them. Putting the cards on the table takes away your bluff. And when you’re playing cards you want the others around you to have value. So, with people, make connections with deeper meaning to ensure those in your inner circles have the most value. When you are in that situation know what and when to ask the right questions to make the best out of your experience!... (more)

Three of these points (3 – 5) are ideals and philosophies of Mr. Warren Buffett on how to become a successful person. Everyone has a dream and we think inwardly but when you realize it is about the people around you then you’ll find a mentor in someone. A school teacher, a parent, maybe even an older friend. Know where and what they come from and if you could both benefit from the mentor relationship or if this is simply a friendship in the making... (more)

Of course the cure cost me a kidney, but who really needs two of those. I don’t drink, do drugs or smoke, so it kind of all worked out. Now it is time to focus on strengthening my body, soul, and mind again. But where does that leave me mentally after everything is said and down?

Thomas J BellezzaTip Of The Week : Networking With Growth - Networking is building and cultivating relationships with new and old contacts. In this business of life it is all about “who you know”. To get to that point it is extremely important to remember it has nothing to with you. In fact, it is all about them. The goal is to make a best friend within a few meetings at most. Listen and responding is a learned skill along with giving your time to people to help build and cultivate relationships. Building is adding people to your circle of contacts and cultivating is taking those relationships from “hello” to “let’s get lunch!” These below tools will increase... (more)

What is their specialty? If they are amazing at finance, remember, even if you are there for an education in the music business, or acting life, you still should understand how money work. In return, take care to pay the knowledge forward to those willing to listen and wanting to do the same pay it forward effort. While you are being mentor you still need to have a value equal to what they are giving you. You have value and a skill, what is it and how can you give to them fairly?... (more)

Altayon “Salvation” Acoustic

“Salvation” was the last song on a concept album titled “Grace of death” about the first vampire king, Demonus Kean. This particular song represents the end of his days when he is reflecting on what has come and where he is while he waits in his eternity. Having finally accepted his role in the world.

Altayon is a Progressive Theater Metal Band. Truth is, my fans brought music back into my life. This is for our fans, our friends, OUR FAMILY. Without you Altayon would be nothing. I am forever grateful to those who have pushed us to keep going.

Thomas J BellezzaTip of the week : Cleaning Up Debt - Money management focuses on understanding how to organize the financial aspect of life. Primarily maintaining the use of budgeting expenses, allocating earnings, and knowing when and what to invest into. Debt is a strong roadblock to that formula. Debt can add up quickly if money is not managed correctly. When money doesn’t seem readily available a loan or credit card seems like the next best thing. How does one take back their control over debt and start managing their finances?

A brave ray glimmering over an ocean's silhouette. Standing deeply in content late at night to begin… (more)

Life, like business, is a one shot deal. You get one chance at making a specific idea work. Upon any failing you must regroup and think about another plan of attack. Waiting around for opportunity will see your greatest resource be used up on nothing but a controlling fear within. Not all T's must be crossed nor your I's all be dotted.

Altayon "Under The Sun" Acoustic Cover

"Under The Sun" is a song written by the band "Black Sabbath" ... obviously! This song is off their Vol 4 album. Love this band and they are a huge influence on why I even play music. Of course my heavier music has a lot of riffs in it because of Black Sabbath, but this is more acoustic playing than metal! Having fun playing a song I really like and gave it a little spin. When covering songs I like to give it a list twist of Altayon and or my own touch to make it more my own. I am by no means a tribute musician and I only do this for fun. Hopefully it inspires others to not worry about being perfect and to let people know you can be you!
