The 2022 Oscar nominations will point you exactly in the right direction. Among the biggest names in Hollywood, you’ll find monster insights into the business world.

1. “You shouldn’t dream your film, you should make it!” – Steven Spielberg

Nomination: Best Director, “West Side Story”

Any amount of time you spend dreaming, talking, or preparing is time wasted. It’s the 1st degree of action — doing nothing. And it will get you nowhere.

Spielberg’s massive action mindset is a major reason why he is the #1 commercially successful director in the world.

Don’t “dream” about cash flow, passive income, and endless wealth. Make it.

2. “I love working with people who are inspired and obsessive.” – Nicole Kidman

Nomination: Best Lead Actress, “Being the Ricardos”

Take it from one of the top 10 highest-paid actresses in the world. You need to be obsessed with success as your duty. But you also need to work with those who share the same passion.

You’re responsible for the people around you. 

If they’re not inspired and obsessed to be great, you’re surrounded by the wrong people.

3. “I’d be more frightened by not using whatever abilities I’d been given. I’d be more frightened by procrastination and laziness.” – Denzel Washington

Nomination: Best Lead Actor, “The Tragedy of Macbeth”

Procrastination will cost you everything. Finances. Confidence. Success. 

On the other hand, massive action leads to nailing goals and moving on to even larger ones.

The 94th Academy Awards marks Denzel Washington’s 10th Oscar nomination. Where do you think he would have been if he’d procrastinated on his goals?

4. “I’m a true believer that you get out of something what you put into it.” – Jessica Chastain

Nomination: Best Lead Actress, “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”

If you put all your time, energy, and focus into generating abundance, that’s what you’ll create. 

This is what 10X is ultimately all about. Put in 10X actions to achieve 10X goals every moment of every day. 

The results? More success than you could ever imagine.

5. “There’s so much more I want to do. I refuse to get to 50 and wait at home for the phone to ring.” – Penélope Cruz

Nomination: Best Lead Actress, “Parallel Mothers”

Age is one of few numbers you should never worry about. No matter if you’re 18 or 68, nothing will stop you from continuing to dominate. 

Your Uncle G’s career really started at the age of 51. 

And I put in the monster work every day to keep that momentum going for years to come.

6. “Whatever your dream is, every extra penny you have needs to be going to that.” — Will Smith

Nomination: Best Lead Actor, “King Richard”

Finally, the wealthiest people alive know that investing in themselves is a top priority. 

Don’t hold onto your money. Spend it the smart way by investing in your training, knowledge, and financial future. 

1The Oscar nominees 2022 list is just the first step towards massive motivation. 

Now is the time to take your business know-how to the next level.
