Danny Devito is short, balding and has a scratchy voice. Nevertheless, he has had a career as an A list movie star spanning thirty plus years. Of course, in hindsight it all makes sense. He’s incredibly funny and unique. That’s why he’s a big star. But in the 70s, before his first big role, I bet it wasn’t at all obvious. I bet a lot of people told him it was impossible. Other movie stars of that era were the likes of Robert Redford and Tom Selleck, the stereotypical hunk. So how did short, balding, nasally Devito conquer all to become a big star that spurns everything he embodied, literally?
We live in a world that is created by our internal circumstances. Regardless of what anyone else had to say about Devito, he felt good about himself. Eventually his external reality reflected his internal situation.
That’s it, the keys to the kingdom of success.
