A Guide to Stardom (Becoming Remarkable to Get Hired)
Many people grow up dreaming of the chance to act in a Hollywood blockbuster.
Consider Bernard Hiller.
“If you don’t invest in yourself nobody will invest in you!” Bernard Hiller
He teaches a masterclass for aspiring and successful actors.
He has been an acting coach to the stars for 29 years and worked in the industry for 40 years. He also coaches top CEO’s around the world.
His Master Class is sold-out in 16 countries.
He says that the path to success may not be as unachievable as one would assume.
Leonardo DiCaprio, 44, sought the help of an acting coach after his 3rd Oscar nomination because he just wanted to get better
What do most people do when they hit a roadblock?
If you want something in your life, you’ve got to visualize it, hold it clearly in your mind, feel it and be it. In essence, you have to implant that thing using the power of the subconscious mind.
Spend time each day visualizing exactly how you want your life to look.
Imagine yourself already there, living the lifestyle you want, doing the things you want to do and being the person you want to be.
Dream, Visualize & Act
Hiller discovered is that when people are highly motivated, nothing can stop them.
The secret of the most successful people is that they can stay motivated, activated, and inspired no matter what happens around them.
To get and STAY MOTIVATED, you must find your purpose. So many people are going to work doing something they don’t believe in. You don’t get burnt out from work. You burn out because you aren’t working on your purpose.
Get motivated, get on purpose, and you won’t feel like giving up.
Remember that it’s supposed to be hard.
Understand that if it were easy, everyone would be doing it.
Stay focused because there is very little competition when you are in the top 1 percent.
Another secret of successful people is that they always ask for help.
Average people never ask.
Getting a mentor can also make the difference between success and failure.
Here are 4 reasons having a mentor is important:
1. Gain Experience Not Shared in Books.
Experience is a very expensive asset — yet it’s crucial to business success. There’s only so much about a person’s experience you can gain from books.
2. You’re More Likely to Succeed with A Mentor.
Research and surveys prove that having a mentor is important to success. Your chances of success in life and in business can be amplified by having the right mentor. The valuable connections, timely advice, occasional checks can quickly lead you to success.
3. Network Opportunities.
A successful mentor often has a well-established network of people who can benefit your career. Since they are already invested in your success, it only makes sense for them to let you tap into their network of people when the need arises.
4. Gain Self Confidence
Self-confidence contributes significantly to career success – often more so than talent and competence. Mentors have the capacity to help young founders tap into their self-confidence and see every challenge as an opportunity.
Bernard Hiller’s Guide to Stardom (translated Being Remarkable to Get Hired) reads a lot like job search advice that has proven to work almost every time.
- Discover what’s special about you and what you can bring to the table that is remarkable.
- Ask for help. Successful people always have assistance. Average people never reach out.
- Never grow up. It’s a trap. Successful people have a youthfulness about them.
- Create own opportunities. Never wait for jobs. Show an employer WHY they need you.
- Go against the grain and dare to be different – standing out can make a BIG difference in being successful.
Learning to act is kind of simple, being an actor is simple too, but succeeding is a whole different matter.
The #1 reason why people don’t live their dream is because they are afraid to seize the moment.
Artists know that we don’t have time – time is life and life is time – if you waste your time, you waste your life. Focus on what you want.
What you attract in life, is what you focus on.
