You know, we all have an opportunity to be great.
Yesterday, I did an interview with a Hollywood Legend and Pop Icon..
Many of you may know him as Biff Tannen from Back to the Future...
But, he is much more than the character many of us fell in love with in the 80s....
He is an artist, a writer, a comedian, and a musician... and his interview was really, really special.
Well, he told it how it is.
He was real.
He was authentic.
He was not full of fluff.
I asked him how he made it to Hollywood from being an introverted kid from Philadelphia...
He said: I competed and never gave up .. but first, I followed my talent...
It was great advice...
He then went on to say: "Life is King of the Hill- we all have a chance to get to get to the top- you just can not quit. You have to compete."
He found in his quest to the top of a competitive Hollywood pool of talent that most quit after they get rejected- he just committed to never quit.
Keep challenging yourself.
Keep studying, learning, and getting better and your craft so you can be the best you can be...
Most importantly: NEVER GET LAZY.
It truly is amazing what can happen when you commit to winning the long-game and enduring the hell that the short-game provides....
So, how do we keep ourselves in a mindset to do this?
Every single day, remind yourself of what you set out to do...
Then, work at that "thing" every single day.
You will get better.
It will take time but you will get better.
When I started writing years ago, I was terrible.
Now, it is truly enjoyable.
The same can happen to you.
Keep going after your dreams with vigor, excitement, passion, and enthusiasm- even when you fail.
Let's go win today.
