How Do You Find the Moments that Define You?

How Do You Find the Moments That Define You
Bagaimana Kamu Menemukan Saat-Saat Yang Menegaskan Jati Dirimu

TRANSKRIP
I hated that job, and I clung to that job.
Ten years in a place without heat.
Six years in a job I felt stuck in.
Maybe I was afraid of change.
Are you?
When I was 29, I told myself,
the next acting job I get,
no matter what it pays, I will from now on,
for better or worse, be a working actor.
And now I didn’t have neither the internet,
or a cell phone, or a job.
But something good happened.
I got a low paying theater job
in a played called Imperfect Love.
Which lead to a film called 13 Moons, with the same writer.
Which lead to other roles, which lead to other roles.
And I worked as an actor ever since.
I didn’t know that would happen.
At 29, walking away from data processing, I was terrified.
But this made me very hungry.
Literally.
I couldn’t be lazy.
Now I tell this story because the world might say you’re not allowed to yet.
Please, don’t even bother asking.
Don’t bother telling the world you are ready.
Show it.
Do it.
Trust me.
A rhythm sets in.
Just try not to wait, until like me, you’re 29 before you find it.
And if you are, that’s fine too.
Some of us will never find it.
But you will.
I promise you.
Raise the rest of your life to meet you.
Don’t search for the defining moments, because they will never come.
The moments that define you have already happened.
And they will already happen again.
Don’t wait until they tell you, you are ready.
Get in there.
I waited a long time out in the world before I gave myself permission to fail.
What did Beckett say?,
“Ever tried. Ever failed.
No matter. Try again.
Fail again. Fail better.”
The world is yours.
Treat everyone kindly.
And light up the night.

TRANSKRIP
I hated that job, and I clung to that job.
Saya benci pekerjaan itu, dan saya memegang erat pekerjaan itu.

Ten years in a place without heat.
Sepuluh tahun di tempat tanpa pemanas.

Six years in a job I felt stuck in.
Enam tahun bekerja saya merasa terjebak.

Maybe I was afraid of change.
Mungkin saya takut akan perubahan.

Are you?
Apakah kamu takut?

When I was 29, I told myself,
Ketika berusia 29 tahun, saya berkata pada diri saya,

the next acting job I get,
pekerjaan akting yang saya dapatkan berikutnya,

no matter what it pays, I will from now on, for better or worse, be a working actor.
tidak peduli berapapun gajinya, mulai saat ini saya, dalam keadaan baik ataupun buruk, akan menjadi seorang aktor penuh waktu.

And now I didn’t have neither the internet, or a cell phone, or a job.
Saya tidak punya internet, atau handphone, atau pekerjaan.

But something good happened.
Tapi sesuatu yang baik terjadi.

I got a low paying theater job
Saya mendapatkan pekerjaan akting teater yang bergaji kecil

in a played called Imperfect Love.
di sebuah sandiwara berjudul ‘Cinta Yang Tak Sempurna’

Which lead to a film called 13 Moons, with the same writer.
Yang lalu berlanjut ke sebuah film berjudul 13 Bulan, dengan penulis yang sama.

Which lead to other roles, which lead to other roles.
Yang lalu berlanjut ke peran yang lain, yang berlanjut ke peran yang lain.

And I worked as an actor ever since.
Dan saya bekerja sebagai aktor sejak saat itu.

I didn’t know that would happen.
Saya tidak tahu itu akan terjadi.

At 29, walking away from data processing, I was terrified.
Pada usia 29 tahun, meninggalkan pekerjaan memproses data, saya takut.

But this made me very hungry.
Tapi itu membuat saya lapar.

Literally.
Lapar dalam arti yang sesungguhnya.

I couldn’t be lazy.
Saya tidak bisa malas.

Now I tell this story because the world might say you’re not allowed to yet.
Sekarang saya mengatakan kisah ini karena dunia mungkin akan berkata kamu belum diijinkan.

Tidak perlu repot-repot bertanya.

Don’t bother telling the world you are ready.
Tidak perlu repot-repot mengatakan pada dunia bahwa kamu siap.

Show it.
Tunjukkan.

Do it.
Lakukan.

Trust me.
Percayalah pada saya.

A rhythm sets in.
Sebuah ritme akan muncul.

Just try not to wait, until like me, you’re 29 before you find it.
Cobalah untuk tidak menunggu, sampai seperti saya, kamu 29 tahun sebelum menemukannya.

And if you are, that’s fine too.
Dan jika kamu demikian, itu juga tidak apa-apa.

Some of us will never find it.
Sebagian dari kita tidak pernah menemukannya.

But you will.

I promise you.
Saya berjanji padamu.

Raise the rest of your life to meet you.

And light up the night.
Dan terangilah langit malam.
