We are not short of people telling us to follow our dreams and go after our goals, but it’s very rare someone tells it how it is. Larry Smith, gives a great insight into the mind of the every day person and details why it is that most people won’t be able to live out their dreams, and it’s not because they don’t have the skills.
Smith believes the reason most people fail to reach their goals and their dream jobs is because they fail to go after what it is they want. Too many people are relying on luck to take them forward in their careers and they believe that the only reason people succeed is on account of luck, not hard work.
If you want to get that graduate job, or if you want to take a different career path you can’t sit and wait for it to happen. It is up to the individual as to how successful they are. Larry Smith out lines some brilliant points as to why people are not reaching their goals and hence why this video has amassed over 2.4 Million views on Youtube.
