Numerous inspirational stories surround Robert Downey, Jr. and his life. Today, he is best known for his roles in “Iron Man”, “The Avengers”, as well as “Sherlock Holmes”. As a result of these roles, he is currently enjoying a large amount of success. He is considered to be “rich”, he is very famous, and his movies have earned billions; however, just over a decade or so ago, his life was completely different.
From the age of 9, Robert Downey, Jr. suffered from various drug addictions. By 1996, he was running into complications with the law. He experienced numerous arrests; attended drug rehab centers regularly, landed himself in court numerous times, and even ended up in prison. It seemed that there was no hope for Robert Downey, Jr. as he continued down a devastating and destructive path.
“I think that the power is the principle. The principle of moving forward, as though you have the confidence to move forward, eventually gives you confidence when you look back and see what you’ve done.” – Robert Downey, Jr.
In 2002, Robert Downey, Jr. took responsibility for himself, his actions, and his life. He broke away from his drug addiction and become engrossed in his work. He surrounded himself with individuals that would hold him accountable and help him stay on the right track. In taking responsibility in the manner that he did, he has experienced a vast array of success. Instead of making excuses and continuing to rationalize his behaviors, he decided that he – and only himself – could pull him out of the depths of despair in which he had pushed himself.
By following his lead and taking responsibility for our own lives, we, too, may experience the same level of success as Robert Downey, Jr. In doing so, we are creating our own inspirational stories!
