Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson knows about success, be it as a professional wrestler, football player, producer, or actor. His first leading film role was in The Scorpion King in 2002. For this role, he was paid US $5.5 million, a world record for an actor in his first starring role. He knows HOW to be successful.
I would like to elaborate on this quote of his:
“Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room.” I work with the willing and those who have a burning desire. There is a story about a man who held someone’s head under water for a while. When he let his victim up, he told him, “When you want to succeed as much as you wanted AIR when you were being held under water, I will work with you, but not until then.”
Here are more quotes from Dwayne Johnson:
“I grew up where, when a door closed, a window didn’t open. The only thing I had was cracks. I’d do everything to get through those cracks – scratch, claw, bite, push, bleed. Now the opportunity is here. The door is wide open, and it’s as big as a garage.”
“Success at anything will always come down to this: Focus and Effort. And we control both!”
