I mean – what IS our problem.
Heres what you do:
Make a video late at night on your webcam about some popular video, slamming the video “just brutal – I mean brutal”.
Wake up the next day -.The said singer has tongue in cheek put your video on her website, asking her Katy Kats to slam you- your inbox is flooded with emails
Then the singer makes jokes about you on a national pop radio talk show – the Livejournal -and there’s no stopping you.
Place ads for big league contacts on your original video, and there you are 78.000 hits on YouTube, plus then there’s the follow-ups, the copy cats etc.
I mean what were we thinking?- why did we think this was so hard? The world beckons.
Except Coady (the kid) isn’t rich or successful or accomplished – not that hes not a nice kid – he is Canadian after all.(hooray) But think of all the things that had to come together to make this flash in the pan work.
Now is he takes this event and applies over two or three years – dedicated hardwork and smarts and yes ‘luck’ and is detremined. He could parlay this flash in the pan into something significant.
Or if you or I with two or three years of focus dedicated hardwork and smarts and a willingness to fail and re-adjust (we call that luck), well we could have something to.
Achievement never changes – sorry folks – its about work, focus dedicated energy and a willngnes to fail and re-adjust.
That guarantees a successful outcome.
Ok not fame – but fame is a terrible thing, if it comes before the work.Always.
