Good morning, afternoon or evening dear friends. I hope you are doing well and working hard toward achieving your dreams.
Don't forget that you have only one life and time goes by faster that you could imagine, especially in this new era of technology when users expect to get everything now!! The notion of time has changed dramatically this past decade. 20 years ago you were considered young at 30. Not anymore.
I do believe that there is no such thing as luck in life. No matter what opportunity they are offered, stupid or unqualified people won't succeed or will eventually fail. Ask any successful people: for them luck if just preparation meets opportunity. Let me tell you about comedy icon Jerry Seinfeld.
As a kid, he already knew he wanted to make people laugh. Later as a teenager, he decided to drop university and to work full time as a stand up comedian. We are in 1976, Jerry Seinfeld is 22 (Here's one of Jerry Seinfeld's bio). His strategy: being an MC in a small club so that he could be on stage every night to try and hone his jokes. He was focused on that first goal. he spent time writing and rewriting, performing in front of a mirror, taping all of his performance to analyze them and guess what happened? A comedy club owner liked him, liked his clean and great comedy and offered him the position of MC at his club. Once he got the job, he forced himself to one hour writing jokes EVERYDAY. Then 2h EVERYDAY. He was so good at one point that other comedians would ask him to fix their own jokes. His nickname? Doctor comedy.
Scout agents from the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson thought Jerry was good enough to perform in this TV show that was considered are the ultimate goal by any comedian. A appearance could launch your career and only a foul would refuse. But Jerry Seinfeld refused 3 times: "I'm not ready". When they came back to him a fourth time, Jerry finally accepted: he was ready. May 1981: his first performance in the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson was a success and it launched his career. As Jerry Seinfeld says it himself in this interview: "The way to be a better comic is to create better jokes and the way to create better jokes is to write everyday" . And when in 1989, Jerry was asked by NBC to develop a sitcom, Jerry's everyday-writing routine for 15 years paid off. BIG $$$. Jerry was ready.
