“Spectacular achievement is always preceded by spectacular preparation” – Robert Schuller
Being the best never comes naturally. I know often it seems like people are plucked out of anonymity to become the Justin Beibers and the Lee DeWyzes of our lives, but the truth is that they were made successful because they had talent and they practice.
When they say on American Idol that so-and-so is just a waitress in a coffee shop, it doesn’t mean she’s not singing too. She works as a waitress in a coffee shop to pay for singing lessons, and agents to book gigs. The point is that these people have worked hard to be ready for the opportunity, so that when it is given to them they can perform surprisingly well.
Are you prepared for the day your big opportunity arrives?
