YouTube video by actor, playwright and entrepreneur Tyler Perry, the highest paid man in entertainment according to Forbes earning $130 million in 2011. In the short video clip Perry shared key factors for his success and two that resonated the most for me was to focus and persevere.
Perry says you must choose ONE dream or goal and pursue it no matter what. His dream was to write and perform his plays and did it once a year despite very small audiences and financial failures. He was even homeless during some of this time. He persevered and stayed focused. Eventually fame and fortune came to him and is able to inspire people with his story. See: Tyler Perry video
War Horse 2011
The movie War Horse is set before and during World War I and is about the astounding strength and resilience of a horse named Joey. Despite the negative beliefs of people about Joey, he is able to plough a stony hillside field and survive years of intense challenges on the battlefields of France. And it was Albert (Jeremy Irvine) that always believed in Joey, training him with skill sets that helped the horse endure.
I usually feature movie heroes that are human and yet I found personal inspiration in the strength of this horse. Joey demonstrated an unbreakable will to persevere and he inspired everyone he encountered during the war. Director Steven Spielberg has created yet another film with a compelling story of triumph and hope.
"Can you imagine flying over a war and you know you can never look down? You have to look forward, or you'll never get home."
If you have a dream or goal you've been pursuing for years stay focused and persevere. Be inspired by real-life stories like Tyler Perry’s and movies that can inspire you to always move forward. Then YOU will inspire others with your own stories of success!
