“You can’t erase your past, but welcome to your future.” –Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
When Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was 14, his family was evicted from their home. Years later, in 1995, after only 2 months into his first season as a professional football player, he was cut.
Having suffered many injuries and now depression. Dwayne Johnson found he has only seven bucks in his pocket. But he knew two things, that he was broke as hell and one day he wouldn’t be.
That was his tipping point. He rebuilt himself and started over. Because as he said: I was crying constantly. But eventually you reach a point where you are all cried out. Today, he is widely considered one of the all-time greatest professional wrestlers. He is a New York Times Best Seller author, a TV host, an A-list actor, and a producer. He turned his life around.
And you can too.
If you find yourself lost, remember, you don’t need directions, just point yourself to the top and go!
Dwayne’s openly shared his secret to success and it can be summarized in these simple steps. Set a goal for yourself and take a moment to respect that goal. Know what it means to you to achieve it. Once you have a goal, it’s all about hard work. What if you don’t know where to start? The Rock says you have to start inside. Because all successes begin with self-discipline. It always starts with you. You must work hard on yourself and your dreams, because it will always come down to this: focus & effort, and you know what? We control both.
With drive and a bit of talent, you can move mountains. There is no substitute for hard work. Always be humble and hungry. You gotta wake up determined, so you’ll go to bed satisfied. Don’t let your past define you but let it encourage you. We all have suffered in our lives. But as The Rock says: you use the hard times of the past to motivate you today. But give yourself time. As he tells us: success isn’t an overnight thing. It’s when every day you get a little better than the day before and it all adds up.
You will get there eventually. We do today what they won’t, so tomorrow we can accomplish what they can’t.
And the last, but not least… be you, because one of the most important things you can accomplish is just being yourself. That’s all… Success starts with one good decision and time.
Keep fighting. Keep trying, and you will be on your way to becoming the great rock you were born to be. And remember… when life puts you in tough situations, don’t say why me? Say: try me.
