We go out almost weekly.
Last night we went to see a UK comic / actor / singer called Bradley Walsh.
It was a very funny show. He entertained the audience. He flirted with the audience.
He mingled with the audience – yes he came amongst us, shook peoples hands, signed autographs, wished people happy birthday.
His singing could be a bit better but he is a versatile individual. As I say, he is first know as a comic and is now an established actor – a serious actor!
Why am I telling you this?
At the end of his show, this is what Bradley Walsh said:
“It doesn’t matter if you are thin, fat, tall, short, yellow, black or blue – you can achieve anything you want if you want it bad enough. My nose is so flat because I’ve had so many doors slammed in my face. But you get up, dust yourself down and try somewhere else. So remember folks, whatever you want to do, you CAN do it. I hope you have a wonderful summer, good night and god bless”
His little talk made me think, “Yeah, it’s true”.
You can do anything you want – if your have that burning desire and passion. And a little help and a little luck.
Luck and help are crucial.
Luck could be a simple thing like you mention what you want to achieve in passing to someone and they give you some excellent advice.
One small piece of advice from me – which was given to me by my work manager at the time – don’t be afraid to ask for advice.
You’ll be amazed how willing people are to share their expertize – if only you ask.
They will be flattered that you have asked.
You can do it – if you want it bad enough.
