Five Lessons From Dwayne Johnson On Getting Paid Big Money
Posted on September 12, 2016
If you’re not a fan of Dwayne Johnson, that says a lot about you. He’s gotta be one of the best examples of a human on this planet. He has such an inspirational life story. Everything about the man says he’s the real deal.
I’ve been watching Dwayne really closely over the last three years. I’ve watched his work ethic catapult him into the spot of one of the highest earning celebrities. I’ve paid close attention to how he’s been able to climb his way up from low-budget tough-guy movies to Hollywood blockbusters.
According to Forbes, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the actor bringing in the most bucks right now. He’s literally the number one actor on the planet. There’s a lot to be learned from someone who’s at the top of their game, and I’d like to share five lessons from Mr. Johnson that everyone needs to learn.
#1: Pack Your Schedule – I read today that GI JOE 3 is being delayed due to Dwayne’s packed schedule. He’s no fool. He came up from nothing. He knows he needs to get all he can while he’s hot. Hollywood is a place where you can be here today and old news tomorrow. The Rock has a rock solid schedule and will continue to jam it full until it’s no longer possible.
#2: Do The Work – I follow Mr. Johnson on just about every social media site out there. Each day, I see him check in on Instagram early AF in the gym. Here’s the hardest working guy celebrity with an insane schedule, who gets up at 4am to hit the gym for a couple hours before he endures a long-ass work day. Dwayne does the work in every area of his life. His body, his business and beyond.
#3: Overdeliver – Dwayne Johnson is an overachiever. Whatever he sets his mind to, he clearly accomplishes. You don’t get to his position in life by short-changing people and projects. When you set expectations and blow them out of the water, people can’t help but want to pay you more than others.
#4: Know Your Worth – Mr. Johnson is the highest paid actor in Hollywood because he’s worth it, so he knows what to charge. He has the self-confidence to ask to be paid for his value. He knows his worth and therefore those who want to work with him, know it. When you’re the best at what you do, you need to get paid accordingly.
#5: Always Be Ready – When your schedule is bursting and you’re a work machine, you don’t get to take days off. Dwayne is in the gym almost every day. Staying in shape. For him, there is no off-season. He’s gotta be camera ready 365. This is important to remember. A lot of actors can’t just take a job on the spot. They have to gain/lose weight, etc. Not Dwayne, he’s ready for whatever, whenever. When you’re constantly in ready mode, you get paid ready money.
If you’re not following Dwayne Johnson on social media you can find his social media accounts on www.clyxo.com/dwaynejohnson I highly suggest you do follow him. He’s motivational, inspirational and an awesome person to engage with online. No politics, hate talk or BS news stories. Just the facts.
