Although some may not like his work, few people can knock Tyler Perry’s hustle. Perry transformed himself from homelessness to one of Hollywood’s it men through sheer determination and hard work.

Yesterday, Perry took to his website to give his fans an inside peek at the secretes behind his massive success.

According to Perry, people should focus on one thing verses spreading themselves too thin and work like hell to make it happen. Despite failing many times, Perry’s sole focus was getting his plays seen by audiences. After trying to years raise money and to attract people to his plays, he finally broke through in 1998.

Perry says he made the video because he’s constantly asked, “How did you make it?” by fans, and he wants to let everyone know that they, too, can achieve their dreams.

Watch Perry’s secretes to success and let us know what you think.

    I think that success in any shape or form definitely requires focus, proper research, hard work, believing in ones self and LUCK (God’s grace or whatever you want to call it)! If it’s meant for you, you must be prepared for when luck shows up. I’ve heard Oprah say that she does not believe in luck and that one must prepare for their blessings. However at the age of 19 Oprah landed a job co-anchoring on the local radio station, which helped to start her career in media. Yes, Oprah worked hard in school and practiced public speaking but she also was “lucky (or blessed) with a great speaking voice. If she did not have a voice that was pleasing to the ear. It would not matter how much preparation she had done. She would not have been hired for that specific position. So I cosign what Tyler Perry says but I want to add that on should prepare themselves for when luck (or blessings) strike! So that you can make the most of it : )
