I’ve never thought much about Clint Eastwood, the actor.
Yes, I loved him in “The good, the bad and the ugly”. Maybe “Dirty Harry” too. But that was it – at least for the longest time.
Then some time ago, I saw “Mystic River” (only because I am a big fan of Sean Penn). I was blown away by Penn’s acting – and the direction too. Guess what, it was directed by Clint Eastwood! And thus started a huge Clint-Eastwood brand-come-back.
And just like that, within the span of a few months, I had seen “Unforgiven”, “Midnight in the garden of good and evil”, “Escape from Alcatraz”, “In the line of fire”, and watched him proudly – and in awe – as he won at the Oscars. Suddenly, I just couldn’t get enough of Clint Eastwood.
Yes, brands can make a come-back. Even Dennis Rodman can, if he wants to.
You’ve just got to keep at it without ever quitting.
Doesn’t matter what color your hair is; just be outrageously brilliant in whatever you do – that’s all.
