Being Unique

If you ever wanted to know what it takes to become famous, you have to also be thinking about what sets you apart from everyone else you know.

There are lots of talented people out there, and you are probably one of them. OK, you're talented, so what? What have you done this week, or better, what have you done today, that will advance your goals? The single most powerful thing that anyone can do to advance their goal of becoming famous is to DO something.

Everyone says they want to be something. Whether its an author, singer, dancer, tv or movie star, artist, attorney, politician, teacher, whatever. They may even want to reach the highest ranks of their chosen field. Most will not ever get past the first step of dreaming of a goal. Fewer will take the time to even read a single book to help them advance after they complete school. An education is a wonderful thing, however learning should never stop.

Great, so you're an expert in something, or maybe even many things (on paper) but can you do it? There is a famous saying "Bull S*** Talks, but Money Walks". Can you produce or are you full of hot air?

The real quality that sets you apart from the herd is your ability to actually DO the thing you want to be recognized for. Fame and recognition might not come today, next week, or even next year, but if you build your reputation on the fact you can do what you say you can do, and do it particularly well, you will certainly increase your chances of becoming famous for your talent.

Go out and do something today - make a contact, set up a gig, find a publisher, call the local tv stations, make a demo tape, create a plan. It's great to have dreams, but if you actually do one thing today towards your goal, you will be closer than you were yesterday.

When you wake up tomorrow - re-read this article and ask yourself if you did something yesterday to get closer to your goals. Rinse and repeat.

What are you going to do today?
