The Rock’s 7 Super Tips:

  1. Be yourself. Be confident in yourself to fully show the world who you are. Being authentically “you” is the key to success in every situation. Whether you are in the entertainment industry, a celebrity, or just an average person, being yourself is the most powerful thing you can be.
  2. Use failure to find success. Failure is critical to the growth of any individual. Injuries, mistakes, and inadequacy only make you stronger. You can’t let difficulties stop you from reaching your full potential. Use your flaws as motivation to work harder and rise from adversity.
  3. Believe in yourself. You are never alone. Always remember that you are never the first one to go through misfortune and you won’t be the last. Have faith that on the other side of your pain is something good. Trust your gut and follow your intuition to chase your dreams.
  4. Go after what you want. Self-drive and determination are essential components of reaching your goals. Don’t let your financial or personal struggles hold you back. There’s no substitute for hard work. You have to work for the things you want because no one is going to do it for you.
  5. Keep raising the bar. Never let yourself become comfortable. Outwork your competition, and once you reach the top, continue to raise the bar. If something has never been done, it doesn’t mean it can’t be done. You are your biggest competitor; it’s You vs. You.
  6. Pick yourself up when you fall down. The world will always try to knock you down, but it is up to you to pick yourself up and persevere. Overcoming obstacles can help define your character and build a tolerance to setbacks. What’s important about failure is the lessons you learn. You get your ass kicked, you get back up, and you swing away.
  7. See potential in others. Recognize the good qualities in people and use them to help better yourself. Listen to guidance from your mentors and allow them to impact your life. Look past the surface and have empathy for others.
