Weird Rules Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Followed to Achieve Success in Life

There’s no denying that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s transition from a professional WWE wrestler to one of the highest earning actors in Hollywood is one of the most impressive success stories of his generation.

The talented entertainer has left his imprint on Hollywood as well as the professional wrestling industry. Moreover, he is an inspiration not only to aspiring athletes but also to up and coming actors who want to conquer the showbiz industry.

Not only is Johnson successful when it comes to his career and professional life, but his warm personality and cheerful smile is uplifting and makes him more relatable to fans.

How did Johnson reach his prime to become successful and a key motivator for his fans? Apparently, it all boils doe to these weird rules he has consistently followed for the past many years. We’re taking notes.

A Flexible Sleeping Schedule

Contrary to what we’ve been told by most health experts, The Rock doesn’t believe in sticking to an 8-hour sleep schedule every night. Instead, he only gets three to four hours of rest at any given time to keep his schedule flexible.

A busy actor like Johnson, who is always busy shooting and promoting films, finds it hard to go to bed at the same time every night. Instead, The Rock has found that being flexible works for him best.

He only needs at least four hours of sleep, and he’ll be as good as fresh the next morning. But no matter how late he goes to bed, Johnson always makes sure to wake up before the sun comes up so that he has at least two hours of free time to plan his day ahead, exercise and meditate as part of his morning ritual.

Insane Workout Regimen

Johnson reveals his insane workout regimen not only helps him maintain his healthy, muscular physique, but it also gives him the strength to accomplish his day-to-day activities with ease.

Johnson exercises every day (as long as his schedule permits) to keep his body healthy and active.

According to Johnson, once he has tackled his workout early in the morning, he doesn’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day and can instead focus on finishing other tasks and goals.

As an ex-footballer and pro-wrestler, The Rock spends at least 1-2 hours in the gym, weight lifting, running, and playing other sports to keep his body active.

Putting Fans First

Johnson may be a successful Hollywood actor and semi-retired pro-wrestler, but he never forgets to thank his fans for it. According to The Rock, he owes all his success and wealth to the people who have always supported him.

Johnson makes sure to appreciate his audience first by interacting with his fans despite his hectic schedules.

He wouldn’t survive in the industry for long if it weren’t for his follower’s unwavering support. That’s why as much as possible, he continues to surprise them with appreciation posts on social media.

Despite his intimidating frame, the actor is very warm and approachable in real life, always agreeing to take pictures or chatting with fans despite his hectic schedule.

Practice Reflection

Whenever you get stuck on your goals or progress and lose the motivation to keep going, Johnson recommends this three-part self-reflection method to break through the plateau.

The first part of the process entails recalling what your life was like five years ago. Where were you back then? Maybe you were a broke college student struggling to make ends meet, and not even close to reaching your goals.

Johnson reveals visualizing his goals help him focus on working and conquering his dreams without wasting any time.

Now that you’ve refreshed your memory, bring your mind back to the present and focus on your current situation. Are you closer to achieving your dreams? Maybe you’re not as close as you’d like to be, but if you’ve made significant progress from five years ago, it means that success is not far from you.

Lastly, think about the future (about five years from now) where you’re finally living your dream. Johnson says that this exercise can help you become unstoppable as you focus on accomplishing your goals.
