It’s hard enough to switch course and change your career when you’ve suddenly lost your old one. But could you make the switch if you were still successfully employed in your old field?
Anthony Tarsitano owned a successful ad agency and was making TV commercials. But he’d always dreamed of making his own movie.
When he was in his late 50s, he finally took the plunge, leaving his old business life behind and to pursue his true passion — filmmaking.
He’s the writer and director of the movie, “Calling It Quits,” which has now won more than a dozen awards.
Anthony says it’s sort of the opposite of the old saying about marriage that the first time you marry for love and the second time you marry for money.
In the first part of his life, Anthony says we all do things to make a living, to make a money. But the second part of life is more motivated by the spirit of what you do.
He says he suddenly realized that material stuff doesn’t fulfill.
“You do some external stuff and some internal stuff and life changes wonderfully,” Anthony says.
He also explains how he started following the practice of non-duality a decade ago — which helps people stop focusing on the good and bad of life and instead start to recognize that everything in life is an experience — and how it’s impacted his life.
