Success is the byproduct of hard work, and that is about it, so if people feel like life is easy for celebrities, and celebrity personalities, they likely do not fully understand how much goes into what they do. It is easy to be jealous of the amount of income these people make, and the lifestyles they have, but the fact remains they work very, very hard to achieve success in a fiercely competitive industry where success is anything but a given.
Ryan Seacrest is the James Franco of the celebrity personality space. He, like Mr. Franco, is unusually busy, on a multitude of projects, seemingly at all times. These people get up before dawn and get to work on constructing a day that is ridiculously productive. When looking at their lives, and how they accomplish so much, others would be reminded that not everyone is cut out for that life.
In addition to his takeover for the late, great Dick Clark in hosting New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Ryan Seacrest hosts American Idol, co-hosts “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” he has a morning show “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” and he took over “American Top 40” music countdown after the late, great Casey Kasem had done it for many years. Meanwhile, under the aegis of his production company, Ryan Seacrest Productions, he also produces hit shows like “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
Reading about his accomplishments might make a lay person tired and there is a good reason for that. Everything Ryan Seacrest has accomplished was something he worked very hard for. He has focus, dedication and a commitment to building a brand of himself that is without a blemish. People like Mr. Seacrest were cut out for this kind of success and capitalized on his natural ability to make a true success of himself.
According to nytimes.com, at just 43 years-old, he will likely continue in his many ventures for another 3 decades. Dick Clark left big shoes for him to fill with New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, and he does that very well. If he is anything like Mr. Clark, he will host well into his twilight years, working very hard at his craft for as long as his body will allow.
