I've never been a big fan of Leonardo Di Caprio until a few years ago when I read a story about how hard he worked to perfect his craft. Then I became obsessed with his performances, each one pushing the envelope just that bit further to achieve a truly amazing performance. He is an incredibly inspirational performer and human being.
Yet he was never recognised by his "peers" at the Academy for his work until today.
And in a display of true leadership, Leo used the moment to thank everyone around him who helped him to get to where he is today and then shone the light on a larger issue impacting society - climate change.
For those of us in our businesses who are trying so hard by working on the right things day and night and still not achieving the results we desire - sometimes you just need to refocus on what is important to you and keep going and soon enough, the world will come around to your way of thinking.
Keep pimpin the dream Entrepreneurs!
