successful people

Summary: The characteristics of a “true star” are the same for an actor that rises and stays at the top and an attorney that succeeds and stays successful in the legal industry.

The traits of a famous actor or actress are very similar to the traits of a successful attorney. Just like an actor can’t rely on good looks, an attorney can’t rely on being smart. Too often people arrive in Hollywood that are good looking, assuming that their good looks will carry them along the way. They lack passion for the craft and instead focus on being rich and famous. When attorneys attend a prestigious law school and get top grades, they assume that this qualifies them for top treatment and perks.


The emphasis must be placed on the substance instead of the form. Success requires genuine interest in wanting to be known as someone that cares and is invested. When an actor or attorney treats others with very little respect, that attitude will catch up with them and soon no one will want to associate with them.

Someone that loves what they do will read about it and be actively involved in participating in it whenever they can. Actors that are committed to what they do will talk about the art form of acting. An attorney will attend seminars, have bookshelves filled with law books, and enjoy discussing and interpreting the law.
