#Quote
1 Do everything you can for yourself. Rehearse. Practice everyday. If you can't sing a certain song, sing it and sing it and sing it. Always throw yourself in the deep end and swim as hard as you can to swim up. And that's all you can do -- take risks and then work really hard because a certain element of things can be luck, but also the harder you work, the luckier you get. If you want something to happen, don't rely on external things to try to make that happen. Put your best self forward.
2 It's your job that should inspire you; fame is just a by-product of something that should give you satisfaction and happiness. Someone said that for every three seconds of glamour you see, there are eight hours of hard work. And if those eight hours of hard work aren't what you're in it for, then the three seconds won't give you the joy that you think it will.
3 You can't live up to everyone's ideals. You just have to do your own thing and hope that it's true to the character.
