How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris has revealed that he believes the best way to make it in life is to follow your dreams. Neil added that you should take advantage of those one in a lifetime moments and grasp them with both hands as you’ll regret it in later life if you do not.
Harris explained, “It's good to have a lot of once-in-a-lifetimes in your lifetime. If you get the chance to skydive, go skydiving. If you're offered a part in a weird Shakespeare play in San Diego, slap on some tights and rock out some iambic pentameter.”
He continued, “If you're offered the opportunity to have a swastika painted on your ass, glitter on your nipples, and to simulate sex with a man and a woman behind a curtain, go for it... provided it's Cabaret on Broadway and not in some dude's basement.” Neil Patrick Harris can be seen in How I Met Your Mother every Monday night on CBS.
