Last week, my wife Angela and I decided to have an at-home date night. It was a little impromptu and really was spurred on by the fact that I wanted to just be lazy for a night. With this in mind, we decided to watch a movie. We are not big movie watchers, yet sometimes it is nice to wrap up in a blanket, pop some popcorn, and download a movie to watch on AppleTV.
As we scrolled through the new releases on AppleTV we did not find anything we really wanted to watch, but I did keep coming across the movie “Never Say Never.” Now, I will admit that I have downloaded the My World 2.0 album on iTunes, but I have never ventured to say I am a Justin Bieber fan and to be 100% honest, I knew nothing of his story.

A music producer found Justin on Youtube, took a huge risk in making Justin famous, got Justin networked with the right people, and the rest will be forever history.
What really impressed me most about the movie is that Justin is a lot wiser than most people will ever give him credit for. The main storyline of the movie is telling how Justin became famous mixed in with his journey to playing at the nation’s (and possibly the world’s) most famous venue in New Youk City, Madison Square Gardens. The whole movie, Justin and his team are striving to get things perfect for what would be the biggest performance of his life. What I learned from Justin within the mix of “Never Say Never” is a lot about setting goals.
From Justin’s goal to sell out and play at Madison Square Gardens, I learned 4 important lessons: Read More »
