Throughout my long career in the entertainment industry few people stand out as committed to their success as Camille Grammer.
Many smart people set out to achieve their goals by deciding what they want, mapping out a plan of action, then moving step-by-step towards the goal. This slow and steady route usually gets people where they want to go without too much hassle. Sure unforeseen things happen, but they can usually be incorporated into plan with a bit of creativity. Even if these people are thrown off their plan, they soon find another and are back on their path in no time.
Doing it Differently
Not Camille. While her destination was crystal clear, the step-by-step was not mapped out. What she lacked in planning, she made up for by being nimble. Seizing opportunitiesas they presented themselves, while at the same time actively and aggressively moving towards them. Camille was leaving no stone unturned in her quest for success.
Often people are willing to wait for their ship to come in. Not Camille, she wasn’t wasting a minute. She was on a hot pursuit of her dreams and using all available resources to make them come true.
By the time I met Camille, in the mid 1990′s, she already had some recognition. I’d never heard of her before because I had been entrenched in business news at CNBC for years. There were many people on the entertainment scene, in NY at that time, I didn’t know. She stood out to me when I met her as a powerful girl on a major mission. No one was going to get in her way. She’d worked hard to position herself for success. She looked great and was definitely ready to take it to the next level. I wasn’t surprised when I heard the news she was marrying someone from Hollywood. AND I’ll not be surprised when she does very well for herself post divorce.
I gave her lots of credit then, as I do now. She’s someone who knows how to make it happen.
Here’s the lesson learned from Camille.
Prepare for success. Do your homework, get the necessary information and surround yourself with people who can help you. Keep your eye on the prize and do what needs to be done to make it happen. Never doubt yourself and have faith that you’ll get there.
Most people want to wait until the opportunity presents itself to prepare, but by then it’s too late. By preparing early you are actually drawing success towards you.
