We rock. You rock. They rock. I am a rock star. He is a student rock star. She is a professor rock star. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Blah, blah, blah. I spent years around real rock stars and I can tell you they are few and far between.
What sets a rock star apart from everyone else is not talent. There are a lot of talented people in every industry, from the music industry to campuses everywhere to the real world. The true rock stars in any industry; the ones truly at the top of their game however, are not always the most talented.
Don’t get me wrong, they do have talent, but they have more than talent. They are the ones who work the rock star principles of passion, knowledge, networking and appreciation into everything they do every day, day in and day out. That’s called discipline, hard work and consistency. That’s what it takes to move from back stage to center stage. And, stay there…like a rock star!
