If You Want Success Then You Need To Hear This.



I don’t often talk about my time in college that was another life time ago it seems in a distant past. It was a place that guided my journey and led to this path, but there is some lessons that I learned from that journey that I think some people really need to hear.

Is It Luck, Secret Sauce, Or Something More? How To Become Known, No Matter Where You Are Now!

  1. 1. Is It Luck, Secret Sauce, Or Something More? How ToBecome Known, No Matter Where You Are Now!by Gen Horrall | on March 12, 2013If You Want Success Then You Need To Hear This.I don’t often talk about my time in college that was another life time ago it seems in a distantpast. It was a place that guided my journey and led to this path, but there is some lessons that Ilearned from that journey that I think some people really need to hear.Okay so you might or might now that I studied as a Theatre Major. What I have not shared isthat I went to the University of Houston. Now for most of you still you don’t really care unlessof course you are a huge Big Bang Theory fan. Picture found on Wikipedia. No about photographer listed.
  2. 2. See I went to school with Jim Parsons, the guy that everyone knows as Sheldon Cooper.Jim’s face and name get thrown around enough and I am not going to share a pic here ofhim. You know who he is without me having to even give you a clue. I am using Jim as anexample here because he is somebody that you will know. He is not the only person thatmade it from my time in school there, just the one that most everyone will recognize.I worked with Jim on more than a few shows and I can tell he is one of the nicest guys in theworld. I love that man. He was sweet, kind, and always caring.I am not telling you this to impress you. I am not telling you this for any other purpose than totruly drive this point home to you and impress upon you a fact that you may well need to hear.Success Is The Result Of One Thing.Jim did not earn his fame by luck. Jim did not earn is fame by the people that he knew. Jimearned his fame through hard damn work. Jim earned his fame by mastering his craft. Jimearned his fame by practicing looks in mirrors, weird voices, and gestures. He would try out newthings. He became a master of what he does.I know this because I watched as he did these things. I was there. I was the assistant stagemanager in several plays with him. We were always in the same college together and many of usall hung out together because that was how our department was. We were a lot like a largefamily.Life Leads You In Cycles.Again I Know A Few People On The Tract Of Success.
  3. 3. I am in a large family again. And I can see those of you that are truly becoming masters of yourcraft.I can see those of you trying on new things and finding what works for you. But if you trulywant to be known for what you do, then please do not mistake getting where you want withluck. There is no such thing.Luck is a word that those that do not get to the goal they set use to console themselves.Talent will get you quite far as well.However true talent comes from honing what comesnaturally to you.This is not a post of discouragement.This is not a post of disillusionment.This post is a love letter to all of you that want to be known for what it is that you are strivingto achieve. This is a letter to let you know that you can get to the dreams that you dream and thegoals that you set if you will do one thing.Work at it!
  4. 4. Work at it like there is nothing else. It will happen because just like Jim you will be a masterof your craft.This letter maybe to you but it also serves as a reminder to me. I am becoming a master of mycraft daily! Join me and master who you want to be too!Light Your Fire And Share It With The World!Gen
