An episode conclusion from Julia Jolie:
AS AN IMMIGRANT TO AMERICA, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OBSESSED WITH THE QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF PEOPLE THAT SUCCEED IN THIS COUNTRY? WHO WINS? WHO FAILS? THIS IS WHY I MADE IT MY MISSION TO INTERVIEW THE MOST OUTSTANDING PEOPLE, THAT HAVE ACHIEVED THEIR LIFE DREAMS AND FIND OUT THEIR TIPS AND TRICKS.
TODAY, I WANT TO SHARE PAT O’BRIEN’S INTERVIEW WITH YOU GUYS! HE’S A TV HOSTING LEGEND! HE HAS BEEN IN THE HOLLYWOOD BUSINESS FOR OVER 3 DECADES, COVERING EVERYTHING FROM THE OLYMPICS, TO BEING THE ACCESS HOLLYWOOD ANCHOR AND CBS SPORTSCASTER.
Here’s what I have learned from Pat O’Brien:
“A lot of things can be thought, but you need to have talent in what you do, in order to become the Best!”
You need to have Natural Talent: Think about what you’re naturally good at. Is it Sawing? Cooking? Writing? Make a business out of it! You have a gift that nobody can take away from you. Now it’s up to you to make money out of it!
“Never go into a Business or Job with your Tail between your Legs! If somebody hired you, or your business, it is because they believe in you! You’re there for a reason!”
You need to be confident: think we probably all struggle with this one. We get an opportunity and mess it up, because we don’t believe in ourselves. It happened to me a thousand times, too! So be confident!
“Create a series of moments”
Be creative: Tell a story with your business! Do something that has never been done before! When Pat O’Brien whispered something in Julia Robert’s ear, he did something, that no other host did before! Everybody was curious about what he said! Transform this creativity into your business!
You’ll get a lot of NO’s!
Never stop trying: You get a lot of no’s in your career, but if you’re persistent, it will pay off! People aren’t always right! And they definitely don’t know what’s best for you, or your career. Believe in you and your idea! Never give up!
“Be fair, be curious, communicate”
Be fair, be curious about people, communicate: Treat other people how you want to be treated! Play a fair game. Karma is a bitch, so don’t do anything shady, it will never pay off.
Be prepared: I think this one is a given, but Never show up to a job unprepared. Even if you were sick, or your boyfriend just broke up with you, It is unprofessional and will get you nowhere!
Be honest: If you don’t know how to do something, be honest! If you don’t like how something is done, tell them! Honesty always pays off!
Be yourself: Perhaps the most important point! You need to be unique as a person and with your business idea! Don’t try to be somebody you’re not. Nobody likes that! Don’t be afraid to show your true colors!
