Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has reached greater success than most could ever imagine. Professional wrestling brought his charismatic style to millions of people and the wrestling world quickly adopted him as one of their most liked wrestlers.
After dominating for years, Dwayne Johnson gained the attention of Hollywood producers, this allowed Dwayne to branch off and find success as an actor. However, there are many reasons why Dwayne rose to fame and high levels of success.
Here are 6 rules for the success of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.”
He focused on working hard and being consistent. Everything else will follow.
- Commitment to making a major change
“In 1995 I had $7 bucks in my pocket and knew two things: I’m broke as hell and one day I won’t be.”
He makes a commitment to make a major change and take massive action to bring about that change. He will be unstoppable.
- Charismatic in nature
“From wrestling in flea markets (making $40 bucks a match) to used car dealerships to barns, to breaking attendance records in every major dome in the U.S., I learned that the most important relationship I will EVER have in business is the relationship I have with my audience. Pay attention to who you do your business for.”
Whenever he is in public, he is very charismatic. He has no fear and electrifies the room like no other person can. This is a major point of his success.
- Be yourself
“The single most powerful thing I can be is to be myself.”
His character, The Rock (called “Rocky” early on), was initially booed incessantly every time he fought a match. Dwayne realized it wasn’t himself that the audience didn’t like — it was that he wasn’t truly being himself while trying to entertain them.
He exposed himself (his emotions) by making an impassioned speech to the people and Rocky died at that moment, giving birth the “The Rock”; which took WWE to a success within weeks.
- Secret to success
“I’m always asked, ‘Whats the secret to success?’ But there are no secrets. Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room.”
Success is all about adapting. When you fail, reassess the situation and try again.
- Learn from your failures
“If something stands between you and your success – move it. Never be denied.”
Success isn’t overnight. It’s when every day you get a little better than the day before.
