How Jennifer Lopez Went From Homeless To Most Powerful Celebrity – Best Motivational Success Story
In this motivational success story you’ll see that at the end of the day it doesn’t matter if other people don’t believe in you or your talents… only hard work pays off. You’ll see how Jennifer Lopez went from a homeless girl with low self esteem to one of the most influential celebrities in the world.
In her final year in high school, she was cast in a low budget movie and it was then when she realized that she wanted to become a “famous movie star”. But To please her parents, she put her dream on hold for a while and went to College. She dropped out after one semester and decided that it’s time to chase her dream and nothing will stop her. When she told her parents that she wanted to become a movie star, she didn’t get the support she was hoping for. Her parents insisted that it was a “really stupid” idea and that “no Latinos did that”.
Because of the different opinions, Jennifer Lopez moved out of their family home determined to become a star.It didn’t take long to prove her mother wrong.
“My mom and I butted heads, I didn’t want to go to college — I wanted to try dance full-time. So she and I had a break. I started sleeping on the sofa in the dance studio. I was homeless, but I told her – This is what I have to do.”
“I remember only getting to have one piece of pizza every day when I was a dancer, that’s how I lived. I did that for a couple of years before I got my first big job. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. For me, coming from that struggle, this is a dream come true for me. I don’t say that lightly.”
Today, Jennifer Lopez is one of the most famous entertainers in the world. She is an incredibly talented singer, dancer, actor, producer and fashion designer. She has been in over 30 movies, has 8 studio albums and won many awards. With the record sales of 80 million, she is the most influential Hispanic performer in the United States.
In 2012 Forbes ranked her as the most powerful celebrity and 38th most powerful woman in the world. Her net worth… is $400 million.
I want you to Look in the mirror and ask yourself… in what point in your life you stopped believing in yourself and you stopped chasing your dream because you thought you’re not talented enough, not good enough…?Do you think that only being talented at something makes you a successful person? No!
You can achieve anything in your life if you’re willing to put efforts and hard work to it.
There will always be someone who is more talented than you, more smarter than you, more beautiful than you. But that thing doesn’t matter. What matter is how much work you put in your dreams. The persistence, the dedication, the discipline.
When you’re prepared to put sweat and tears and dedicate your life to become what you’ve always dreamed of… the world will be yours. Because…
Hard work beats talent every time…
