Living out here in Los Angeles I finally realized that work ethic is so important. They say it's difficult to make it out here, and the truth is, it's difficult to make your dreams come true no matter where you live. You have to put in the time and hard work, and make some sacrifices to make it happen.
I've become familiar with the LA dynamic, and I'm starting to see why everyone thinks it's a one in a million shot out here; it's because no one has a good work ethic. It's so easy to become distracted by the life style in LA, and within a few months you'll start to worry more about having fun, than working hard. The fact of the matter is, if you are willing to do the work, you will be able to continue to grow. There are so many opportunities out here to take advantage of, but everyone is too busy going to parties, or worrying about their social status. All you need to do is focus.
That being said, this week, focus on your work ethic. If there is something you're working towards, do not give up, no matter how hard it gets. If you find yourself getting distracted, take a minute to regroup and get back on track.
