There are a lot of skills you can learn.
Unfortunately, we humans don’t really like doings things unless we have to, or there is a VERY compelling reason.
For example, plenty of “diets” are based on celebrities.
Like the Daniel Craig (James Bond) diet, for example.
Want to know the real secret of the Daniel Craig diet?
It’s got nothing to do with what he eats.
It has EVERYTHING to do with the incentives.
If YOU got paid millions to take your shirt off in the movies, you’d probably be able to get pretty ripped as well.
Unfortunately, few of us will ever be given a guarantee like that.
We normal humans have to try our best just to get a chance.
But then again, guys and gals like Daniel Craig didn’t get lucky.
It wasn’t like he was just strolling down the street one day and some Hollywood dude rolled up in his limo and asked if he wanted to play James Bond.
Usually people that have that much success started building it when they were very young.
Take Bill Gates, for example.
When he was a teenager, LONG BEFORE he even thought about an “operating system” he was hustling.
Meaning he was always trying things to see if he could make money.
Or that guy in the “Wolf of Wall ST.” movie.
(Jordan Belfort played by DiCaprio)
Before he was a wolf of wall street, before he even knew ANYTHING about wall street, he and his buddies sold shave ice on the beach.
On their own, they bought the raw materials (ice, flavoring, some kind of cart, etc.) and in one summer they netted 10K.
Nobody told them what to do. Nobody game them any guarantees.
They just had a deep DRIVE to succeed, and they went out and made it happen.
If you check your favorite Actors page on IMDB, you’ll see the same story.
Most A-listers today started when they were VERY YOUNG.
Even AC DC teaches the same story.
“It’s a long way to the top if you want to Rock n Roll…”
But here’s the thing.
That DRIVE isn’t just in SOME people.
It’s in EVERYBODY.
Sure, some people are “lucky” in that they find a quick and easy way to “monetize” this natural human drive.
But it only SEEMS easy when we look at them AFTER they succeed.
Every huge success had the same fears, worries and concerns.
But they pushed through them, and kept their eyes on the prize.
So can you.
