Eddie Murphy: Go After What You Really Want

Eddie Murphy - Get What You Want

Eddie Murphy talks about the importance of going after your Plan A in life instead of setting yourself up for failure by settling for the safer path.

Transcript:


"I knew I wanted to be in show business. I just happened to luck out and things happened. I think you know what you're supposed to do. Deep down inside I think everybody does and a lot of people just don't go after it, you know?

What you're doing is you're setting yourself up for failure because you're going, 'There's a possibility that I'm going to fall back.' When you put that out there, then you fall back, but if you just say, 'Hey, this is what I want to do, and you go do it, you usually get your stuff the way you want it man."
