Dwayne Johnson AKA, “The Rock”, created a life that now consists of him pursuing his desires on the regular, however it took him the course of nearly 2 decades to find the exact diamond he was looking for. Don’t get it wrong, the only way that it would all pan out so well, is because he pursued almost everything that he enjoyed. He trusted each gut nudge like an inner guidance mechanism that would lead him down the right path, every, single, time.
While growing up in a wrestling family, he considered the sport and tried some amateur wrestling but didn’t like it at that time. Dwayne Johnson went on to study Criminology as a major and football was his sport of choice. He was also a member of the Miami NCAA championship team in 1991. But a back injury in his senior year forced him to not get picked up in the NFL draft. Consequently he received a contract with the CFL but was cut after his fist year. Dwayne Johnson admits “I like to use the hard times in the past to motivate me today.” After a tryout for Miami’s football team, the Rock backed up Warren Sapp. However, football never really panned out for Dwayne, but his never ending search for passion paid off in the long run as he went back to his roots of wrestling, somewhat. He joined the WWF where he would not only become one of the most electrifying wrestlers of all time who brought a completely new element to the show, but he also found another strong desire for acting. Dwayne Johnson was clearly born to be in entertainment in it’s many forms. It was his never ending search and openness to try new things (especially those he enjoyed) that allowed him to find his absolute vortex, if you will.
“My goal was never to be the loudest or the craziest. It was to be the most entertaining.” – Quote by Dwayne Johnson
#MoralOfTheStory: Follow your inner guidance – things that you enjoy and it will help you find your life’s calling. And be very open minded.
