When you think of the term “Successful People”, a couple of names will ring in your mind. One of the names I remember is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson : A celebrity who excelled as a wrestler and won in the world of boxing carting away lots of medals and titles. Thereafter, he proceeded to the Hollywood movie industry and became one of the few highly paid actors of his time. This earned him great affluence to the extent many felt he will one day run for the office of the president. The question now is for hungry are you for success?
One will wonder how a man could achieve success in every ventured he attempted. A man with very little beginning, rising to pinnacle of fame and wealth. How has one man achieved so much from humble beginnings? Can we learn from his virtue and be inspired for success?
Here an answer I discovered after my research about this celebrity. He had an irresistible hunger and passion which nothing could quench. Nobody could discourage him out of success. No life condition was powerful enough to subdue his flare. He was ready to fulfill every demands necessary, whether in terms of discipline, practice, investing time and money to do everything he was convinced would take him to the top.
When someone is that busy and has that many plates in the air, how can they possibly attain the kind of physique that he has? One of the answers is to get up earlier and to train before the rest of the world even wakes up. And that’s exactly what The Rock does. If you follow him on Instagram, then you’ll quickly find that a lot of his pictures pertain to his early morning training. These are images of his phone alarm going off at 4am, or of him in the gym alone before any other patrons have arrived.
Simply put, he is in that incredible shape because he has the will to train when most people wouldn’t even consider having the energy to do so.
And he puts that same passion into everything. This is how he finds time to be in so many movies each year, how he finds time to promote himself so actively on Facebook: it is all driven by his passion.
Yes, the Rock has unstoppable determination and motivation. But that comes from his passion. You can see it in the way he talks; he is absolutely thrilled to be doing what he is doing and that is what makes him jump out of bed in the morning. Have you ever seen him look sullen and disinterested? Can you imagine him coming home, getting into pyjamas and watching rubbish TV while eating a pot of icecream?
How Passion Makes You Magnetic
It’s also the same passion that makes The Rock so exciting to watch. The Rock talks and smiles and gesticulates in a way that is genuine and larger-than-life and that makes him incredibly persuasive and likeable. Once again though, this comes from the fact that he loves what he does.
Studies show us that we rate people as more charismatic when they gesticulate more. When do people gesticulate more? When they are passionate about what they’re talking about. People who love their subject speak with their whole body and that makes them highly magnetic.
So what is the secret to Johnson’s success and how can you tap into it? Simple: find your passion!
