There are a lot of people in the entertainment industry who like to cross over and keep challenging themselves, with many singers taking up acting over the past few years. One such singer, who made the move into acting and has enjoyed success in both his music career and his acting career, is the hugely talented star Justin Timberlake.
It is fair to say that Justin Timberlake has worked very hard to get to where he is today and it is obvious to him where he developed this hard work ethic from. Justin says that his parents always pushed him to try his best and made him realise that hard work really does pay off.
Timberlake told Oprah Winfrey, "That was something I remember my parents telling me. The idea that if you put in more than 100 percent, if you put in 115 percent, then there's a good chance that you're going to end up getting back somewhere in the 90's. That made sense to me."
Justin then went on to state that he also learned that if you really wanted something bad enough, then you should really put everything into it. This has all clearly worked out well for Timberlake, as he is now one of the biggest stars on the face of the Earth.
He added, "And the idea that something worth having was worth putting all of yourself into it. Practice, rehearsal, working on it when no one's looking. Getting comfortable in it. So that when you step on that stage, you're ready. And then you can literally forget all of that and just be in the moment. And do something different. Do something original, do something different every time."
Not only has Justin Timberlake found success with his career, he has also enjoyed a successful personal life and is happily married to Hollywood beauty Jessica Biel. Hard work really does pay of guys!
