Some of them claim that they’re simply lucky and it was the right place at the right time and others say that they followed their passions. While we agree timing is important, discovering and following one’s passion is crucial.
For example, last night, Bryan Cranston won his fourth Emmy for portraying Walter White on Breaking Bad and in his speech he talked about being a kid that was always trying to find a shortcut, but then “stumble[d] upon finding a passion that created a seed and bloomed into something so wonderful…” He said that he would continue to pursue his passion and act until his dying breath and he went on to share some words of wisdom, "Settling for mediocrity because it was safe…don’t do it. Take a chance. Take a risk. Find that passion...it’s really worth it.”
