Will Ferrell on His Dad’s Best Advice

I had lunch with my dad one day and said, ‘hey, I’m going to try to go for this… whatever that means, I don’t know. Got any advice for me?’ And he gave me some of the best advice… He said:

‘If it was all based on talent, I wouldn’t worry about you, you’d be fine. But you have to remember: there’s a lot of luck. If you get to a point 3 years, 4 years, 5 years from now, and you feel like it’s too hard… don’t worry about quitting, don’t feel like you failed and it’s okay to pick up something different.’”

Take the pressure off, turkey. There’s a lot of luck involved. Enjoy the work and give it a good go.
