It’s Not Luck, I’m Not Lucky

“I hate that word—“lucky.” It cheapens a lot of hard work. Living in Brooklyn in an apartment without any heat and paying for dinner at the bodega with dimes—I don’t think I felt myself lucky back then. Doing plays for 50 bucks and trying to be true to myself as an artist and turning down commercials where they wanted a leprechaun. Saying I was lucky negates the hard work I put in.”- Peter Dinklage, Actor, Game of Thrones

Paid my dues...

Paid my dues…

Many people are looking for the easy path, the short cut, the lucky break to career success. As Peter Dinklage points out in his interview, there is no lucky break, and it is about the process. His process was to know what he wanted to do, and then doing that.

Are you looking for lucky breaks? or are you working towards your career success?

Paying your dues is an idea not much used today. except by successful people who pay their dues and find create their success along the way.
