One of the most common questions successful people get is “What’s the secret to success?” It’s at the core of any aspiring professional. We want to be successful in all we do, so when we see someone who has attained a certain level of success, we search for the recipe. However, like all things, there’s no “get rich quick” scheme for reaching your goals. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson understands this all too well.
“I’m always asked, ‘What’s the secret to success,” Johnson surmises. “But there are no secrets.” He goes on to explain what he believes is at the heart of getting what you want out of life: “Be humble, be hungry, and always be the hardest worker in the room.”
Throughout his life, the Jungle Cruise star has been successful in several different careers spanning from body builder to professional wrestler to serious actor all while staying humble and working relentlessly toward his goals.
Focus on the Three Hs of Success
Regardless of where you are in your career, there’s no quick way to level up or skip steps to reach the top. The journey is a major part of the process of refining yourself and developing the version of you who will be more adaptable for success. Map out what specific goals you want to achieve during this season and create detailed steps of what it will take for you to get there. Each step may seem small in the grand scheme of things, but it will get you that much closer to dreams.
Like The Rock explained, if you focus on humility, hunger, and hard work, eventually you will get closer to your goals. His Three Hs seem to be a pretty great recipe for success. So, you just need to ask yourself:
“Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?”
