Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has reached greater success than most could ever imagine. Professional wrestling brought his charismatic style to millions of people and the wrestling world quickly adopted him as one of their most liked wrestlers. After dominating for years, Dwayne Johnson gained the attention of Hollywood producers, this allowed Dwayne to branch off and find success as an actor. However, there are many reasons why Dwayne rose to fame and high levels of success.

Read on for a look into how Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has become so successful.

1. He Is Very Charismatic

When Dwayne is in public, he is very charismatic. He electrifies the room like no other person can. This has allowed him to appeal to many people. Everyone just wants to see what he will do next and this has been a major point of his success.

Without being charismatic, Dwayne Johnson may never have transitioned from minor fame to the mega success he is today.

2. He Possesses A Competitive Nature

Being competitive has been the driving force behind his success. Everything that he does, he puts his all into it whether it be wrestling or acting.

If people do not work hard, they do not achieve their dreams. This is something that separates him from everyone else. He wants to be the best at all times and will not settle for anything less.

3. He Is Very Entertaining

Personality has a lot to do with his success, especially in acting. Dwayne always finds a way to relate to his fans. Whether it be the “people’s eyebrow” or his radiant smile, he finds ways to make the audience more involved. He is the person everyone roots for simply because he is so likable.

4. He Has A Successful Family

Family connections have a lot to do with The Rock getting his start in wrestling. After his football career came to an end, he had help from his father who was a former wrestler. In fact, his grandfather, uncles and cousins were all wrestlers as well.

In essence, he joined the family business and learned what it takes to succeed from his father.

5. He Follows His Dreams

Everything in life has a purpose for Dwayne. No matter what his dreams were, becoming a wrestler, acting or football, he did extremely well because he wasn’t afraid to follow his dreams. Without the drive to succeed and be the best, he might not have excelled the way he has.

Dwayne Johnson followed his dreams, but more importantly, he did everything in his power to transform them into a reality.

6. He Works His Ass Off!

During his “Once in a Lifetime Documentary” on USA, The Rock recalled his football failures. He mentioned that it devastated him, but made him work harder when training to be a wrestler.

Dwayne recalls training for hours each day and contributes his hard working ethic to his success.

7. He Found a Mentor

Dwayne Johnson had a rough childhood and was arrested nine times by the time he was 17. He was headed down the wrong path and needed an immediate change. Luckily, his childhood football coach reached out to him and asked him to join football to stay out of trouble. His coach, a probation officer, started a football team to keep kids off of the streets and doing something productive.

8. He Learns From His Failures

When his football career ended and he hit rock bottom, Dwayne Johnson was forced to move back in with his parents. His life was in shambles, he spent 10 years training to be a football player before his dream ended. However, he attributes this to his success because hitting rock bottom made him realize that he has to work even harder to reach his dreams.

9. He Surrounds Himself With Great People

Deciding to be friends with good people changed his life dramatically. If he would have stayed with the same crowd, he might have been thrown in jail. He knew that certain aspects of his life had to change, so he cut out all of the bad people in his life. This allowed him to feed off of their success and grow as a person.

10. Dwayne Takes Risks

Taking risks has enabled Dwayne Johnson to venture from wrestling to acting. If he wasn’t successful in acting, he might have passed up his fame in wrestling. Since the sport is very unforgiving, time away could have resulted in him not being a fan favorite anymore. However, he took the risk and has become a very successful actor.

Dwayne Johnson should be an inspiration to everyone. The decisions he made in life are what ultimately led to his success. Oftentimes, his life took a turn for the worse and the end of his football career was a major turning point in his life. Instead of giving up, he dedicated himself to aiming high and becoming a wrestler. Shortly after, he became one of the most well known wrestlers of all time and is now on the road to be a highly acclaimed hollywood actor and role model for all who are willing to be the best that they can be.
