Here are 3 success lessons to be learned from Jason Statham, thanks to Men’s Health Magazine:
1. Decorate from within
Interior decorating should not be scoffed at. In fact, if you put your imagination to work and think about what reflects you, it’s easy.
Statham has some cool photography on the walls.His office shelves are full of personal photos, and a matted, framed trio of silhouette pistol targets hangs in his kitchen. Hang whatever makes you feel more like yourself – if it’s framed, it’ll have class.
2. Get away as much as possible
If your place becomes too much of a sanctuary, you’ll destroy the point of creating it in the first place. You have to go out and live well.
Statham, surprisingly enough, has no home fitness equipment—which is significant when you consider his line of work. He prefers to leave his place for fitness. It’s one less thing to maintain on the home front, and going to the gym allows him to interact with his coworkers.
3. Try to impress women – but not too hard
You don’t want your place to turn off the ladies, of course. But at the same time, “I’ve always thought it was uncomfortable to strategically set up some kind of situation with scented candles, a fire, the right music on etc.
Statham is one of the most popular action actors of all time, and his net worth should probably be a little higher considering that fact. At the time of writing this, Jason Statham’s net worth is $40 million.
