DeVon Franklin – Motivational Speech
The Film Producer DeVon Franklin gives us several points on how to better ourselves and motivate us to keep pushing for the dreams we may think are out of our reach.
If you want to be successful in business follow these 4 steps to guide you on your way.
1. You have to be crazy:
You need the drive to achieve something that others say that cannot be done. Have the passion to follow through on your goals no matter what is thrown in your way.
2. Your difference is your destiny:
Use your unique nature and skills to the betterment of yourself, and never lose that to fit in with other peoples businesses and ideas. That difference is the key to standing out and becoming a success.
3. Carry a Crown before you wear one:
You have to work hard for others and learn the processes of the industry you want to work in before you can be the boss. The only way to become the best is work with the best. And after time, you will earn the right to your own crown.
4. Find the Old Town Road:
From a song by Lil Nas X, we see the example of finding your purpose and direction (Your Old Town Road) and keep moving forward until you have achieved all you want, and don’t let anyone get in your way.
We need to find our identities and answer the question of how are we going to get to where we want to be. Find what is inside you already and fight hard for the job you really want.
Fight the fear and doubt in your heart. Play the long game of success.
