Beaten and molested as a child, suicidal, high school dropout to award winning actor, director, screen and playwright, producer, author, songwriter and Forbes 2011 “highest paid man in entertainment” (earning $130m in one year). Tyler Perry has overcome challenges, which have destroyed many other people, to become one of the world’s great success stories. He has succeeded in creating films, shows, and books that have touched many lives. Watch the video below and learn, from Tyler Perry himself, how he did it.
I am learning the power of narrowing my focus to one thing, whether it be one single task, one single habit, or one single idea. Many successful people have adopted this habit. I strongly encourage you to test this out, and see if it brings better results in your life.
Question: What one idea can you focus on, sticking with until successful, that will have the greatest impact on your life?
congrats for this video! Seed a plant everyday and just trust! beautiful;)
Yes indeed! Thanks for commenting!
Wow that was a powerful video. I love how he gave the glory to the Lord. But he worked hard and keep at it too. Sometimes Christians say, well I prayed about it and then do nothing more. I believe that if you want it prayer is important but so is the work.
I read this quote the other day, “work like it depends on me, and pray like it depends on God”…sounds like Mr. Perry did just that. Thanks for commenting.
Jackie, this was an awesome video – I had no idea about the struggles, challenges or faith the undergirds the Tyler Perry empire. Thanks for the education!!!
Yes, it inspires us to never stop. We we do this anything and everything is possible. Thanks for commenting.
