How to Succeed without Talent
Maybe it's true that many people who have made it big don't have talent, but they are sure making more money than I do (and that not only includes my regular jobs, but but my vast income from my blogging empire too.) By the way, Rupert Murdoch, Ted Turner, Richard Branson, and Bill Gates, my blogs are not for sale so back off with all of your lucrative offers!
I'm sure there are many talented musicians, actors, artists, and athletes out there who could compete with or even do better than many of the stars of today. They probably just don't have the connections, a known name, or a way to market themselves. It makes me wonder what little things those who have become famous have done that the others haven't. I am not saying that being famous is the ultimate goal either. It's obvious that many celebrities have totally messed up lives even if they are in big demand by their industry.
This topic also got me thinking about musicians who become actors. What is it with musicians who think that just because they can sing or rap, they belong in the movies? Even though this bugs me, I have to admit they have a pretty good conversion rate. Queen Latifah, Ice T, Snoop Dog, LL Cool J, Ice Cube, and other have all moved over into the movie industry. If I am ever going to be in a movie, I guess I should first become a rapper.
I hope you don't feel disappointed with this blog title since I really didn't offer any ideas how to succeed without talent. I was just trying to boost the appeal and possibly the search engine rating of this post. At least I didn't call it "Justin Bieber adopted by Angelina Jolie".
