Success – When Failure Isn’t An Option


I wanted to share Terry Fator’s clip today because, while it is brief, it has a lot of meaning.  Many successful entertainers are successful simply because they had no other option.  They had to succeed.  Allowing yourself an out makes it easier to justify when things don’t happen.  If you don’t have any excuses, if you have to work your butt off to succeed, you may find you will work harder.

On the same note – many performers who left themselves no out – now have low paying menial jobs.  While we personally don’t recommend this route, it has worked for many successful acts.

You can follow the story of Terry’s rise to fame in the movie Dumbstruck. It gives you a great look at the successes and failures of show business. Although the performers in the movie are “ventriloquists” – these types of stories are rampant in all fields of variety arts. It is worth a watch!
