Award winning singer, songwriter and actor, John Legend talks about the arduous path of success. The thoughtful Grammy winner notes that “I’ve been unsuccessful in my career…you just didn’t know about it because I wasn’t successful yet and I was trying to be famous. I was trying to get a record deal for six years and I kept getting turned down.”

The great ones aren’t the ones that don’t fail. They’re the ones that learn from their failure and keep going and they’re persistent and they’re tenacious.” He also talks of honing your innate talent and always working towards getting better.
