The first question that people have when they want to become a star in the entertainment industry is what should I do? At SYK at seizeyourfame.com, they direct emerging talent on the path they need to be on. Their news site, sykwinds.com provides free news to emerging talent . Here are three concepts that you need to know in order to succeed.
Actions count, not dreams and wishes
I would guess that just have everyone who has seen a movie has dreamed of being a movie star. What separates those who actually become stars and the billions of people that just dream are actions. A thought or a desire in your head is worth nothing unless you can take daily actions to help make it happen. However, if you can combine a vision, especially engrained into you subconscious, along with actions, you will be moving at your full potential.
Good is not good enough
The movers and shakers in the entertainment industry are not looking for someone is a good actor or musical artist or model. They are looking for someone who is going to be great, who has great talent, who has great potential. The producers are looking for people that are going to knock everybodys socks off. A favorite quote of ours is that good is the enemy of being great. How do you get to be great? Great is when a good person is working at full steam. Great is when a good person outworks all the competition. Great is when there is no way you can be any better. If you are trying to be a good actor or musical artist, you are probably going to struggle. The only way to achieve success is to strive to be great. Combining this with the last point, take daily actions to make yourself great.
Talent is not enough
If you are trying to make it in the entertainment industry, you probably consider yourself a pretty good natural talent. We going to have to break it to you that talent alone is not enough. You need an extraordinary amount of talent, training, practice, and experience to improve that talent. Equally as important, you need the business sense to know what you need to in order to succeed. Finally, you need a financial plan of how you are going to pay the bills for the years it is going to take for you to make it. Without all of these crucial things in place, it is hard to make it in the entertainment industry.
