How great you are rarely determines how well you do. In this life our actions speak louder than words. However, if people have never heard of you, or they really don’t like you, then being talented means nothing. This business of life starts out with an idea; the strong survive. We’re protected by a guardian/parent figure to ensure a child makes it into their teens at minimum. Being the strongest is basically being the best and most talented. However, surviving in life, and becoming successful at what you do, are different. Without a basic understanding of what gets you there vs what keeps you there, things can become a bit confusing.
You want to be the best at your job to keep working there, stay in entertainment as a valuable performer/creator, or continue maintaining whatever it is you love. Being the best keeps you around for only so long. You must do certain things to help both “obtain” and “grow” success. This is done with the 3 needs of success; Network, Market, and Practice. Each of these things are a product of effort. Networking is about who you know. The more people you know, and are nice with, the easier it is to get things going. Marketing is who knows you. When people know what you do, they’ll make an effort to find you. If you are good at what you do, you’ll be on the top of their list; which means, “Practice” your skill.
Letting go of this idea that being amazing will get you to the top without placing the correct effort into these specific areas will help greatly in achieving said goals. A little side tip on being suc-stressful, is when you think you are the best, and never show the courtesy of thanks for those around you, it can lead to a meltdown of anxiety. People will vanish when they are unappreciated. Be kind to people, it helps Networking and Marketing go so much easier. People will listen to those they like, and give ill reports of those they see as arrant knaves. So what did happen being as talented as you are? Think back on your time in your field; where are you now? Make changes and get where you want with effort!
