Dwayne Johnson also known as The Rock was recently ranked by Forbes as the highest paid actor. Commonly for movies like Hercules, San Andreas and most recently Central Intelligence where acted alongside funny comedian Kevin Hart, you can say the Rock hasn’t slowed his roll.
When he received the news he couldn’t but say that it serves as a reminder to continue to work even harder.
‘I learned a few invaluable lessons a long time ago that can help all of you guys out there succeed at whatever it is you’re doing. Greatness is never achieved alone. Surround yourself with hungry, brilliant individuals who not only buy into your philosophy, but who are all willing to work just as hard as you. Power of teamwork,‘ he said before going on to share his past life struggles, ‘I was evicted at 14yrs old and completely broke by 23. Every day I wake up as if that eviction notice is right around the corner waiting for me.. which is why I always say, “the wolf is always scratchin’ at the door”. He’s scratchin’ cause he’s hungry and never satisfied.’
If that wasn’t enough, the actor further said that ‘We embrace and respect our past but we never let it define our future. Let’s stay hungry and chase that greatness.‘
Dwayne Johnson is already back on the big screens with his Ballers series which premiered on July 17.
