Brie Larson had been chasing a dream for 20 years
If you haven’t seen 2015 Oscar nominated film Room. I highly recommend it. It’s an intense but moving story and landed Brie Larson her first Oscar award. Her performance was fantastic and more than deserving of the prestigious award. After winning, I discovered this Q&A with her backstage and she was asked “What advice would you give to those who haven’t achieved their dreams?” Brie’s advice was spot on. Watch below.
“You just have to do it.” I love that! There’s no magic formula, right or wrong answer just get out and do it. I’ve been learning that a lot more lately. Stop waiting for things to be perfect or the right time. Just get out and do the work, things naturally seem to fall into place. She also mentions it took 20 years to be on that stage. We can get caught up in the idea that success is overnight or just happens. You can ask any successful people what it takes to achieve your dream and it usually comes down to consistent pursuit of the work.
