Will Ferrell – Give It A Shot (video)

“When I decided that I was going to go for it and try to jump into comedy I sat down with my father and said “Do you have any advice?” He said “You know, if it was strictly about talent I wouldn’t worry about you, but just remember that there’s a lot of luck involved, and that give it a shot and if you don’t get to the point where you want to be at, if you aren’t satisfied, it’s okay to, it’s actually okay to walk away.” For some reason that took the pressure off of ever trying to succeed, and I thought well this is such a crap shoot I might as well have fun and here we are now.”
