The value of hard work!

Hi Friends! It's been a while since we caught up. Soooo much has happened! Hope you are doing great wherever you are.

A few days ago, I was invited to give a key note speech for a major brand and I wanted to share a little snippet with you.

A lot of people think that success happens overnight, and this couldn't be further from the truth. For some people it does happen at an instant but on average I have found that the old adage rings true - an overnight success takes ten years. When you see people living their best lives on stage or on TV/film it's usually taken them a really long time to get there. 

What people also don't see a lot of is the grind, the hard work it takes to make it. For everyone it's different but for me it took me a long time to arrive where I am at right now. At this moment! People see the final product on TV but what you don't see is me studying my script, coming up with content ideas, doings tons of research, prep work for filming - its a lot that happens behind the scenes! But I do it gladly cause this is my dream. I LOVE MY job!

So I leave you with these words from Colin Powell for now "A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work."
