Are you holding open the door for fate to enter or do you push it close?

Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. Sometimes we hit obstacles, sometimes miracles lift us across them.

In this episode, musical theater performer Romeo Salazar shares his experience of losing the stage to perform on during the Covid pandemic. In this juicy, textured conversation we contrast seemingly mere luck and helping fate find you through your active being and doing.

Filipino-born and Catholic-raised Romeo takes us back to his years growing up as a highly ambitious student and athlete who struggled to accept his love for men. While his parents foresaw an academic future for him, their rebellious son followed his north star first as a dancer on national TV. For 36 years now and counting, he has been working as a choreographer, dancer, singer, and actor on renowned stages such as London’s West End and musical theaters across Germany.

Equipped with life’s degree in gratitude, authenticity, and the courage to face potential rejection, he built this career on the foundation of no professional education in music whatsoever. In fact, he did not even know what a Top C was all the while chanting it away in one of his first auditions.

Romeo proves that as long as your heart and mind are open, you can achieve more than you can possibly see coming for yourself. And that rock bottoms along the way are not bitter obstacles or signs of failure. Although no one loves their presence in life, dark times are a necessary ingredient to becoming who you are capable of being. Accepting whatever is, and whoever you are authentically, is key to holding open the door for fate to come in and do its magic…
