There is a tangible amount of luck that is necessary for a successful career, and the only way that luck happens is if you're prepared for it and you stick with it.

Call me twinkle toes. Honestly, in my past, one of the physically hardest classes that I have ever taken was ballet. I have the most respect for dancers. Excuse me while I practice my pirouettes.
An acting teacher once taught me that to be an effective actor, you have to be willing to appear naked... he meant emotionally naked. I misunderstood and took it literally, but there is truth in both. You have to be open, vulnerable, and not easily embarrassed.
