Here’s How The Rock, One of Hollywood’s Busiest Men, Balances Everything

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of the most consistently booked-and-busy men in Hollywood. With roles in tentpole superhero movies, Disney adventure flicks and studio comedies, that doesn't look like it's going to change any time soon. And that's before you even get into the guy's many various side hustles, which range from training apparel with his Under Armour Project Rock line, to ZOA energy, to his own brand of tequila.

Johnson recently opened up about how he balances all of his different projects with being a husband and father in an Instagram video, stating his belief that it starts by acknowledging just how hard it can be to achieve that balance when dealing with a busy life full of professional and personal commitments.

"It's much easier said than done," he said. "Like you guys, I've got babies to raise, babies to feed, bills to pay, food to put on the table, relationships to maintain, businesses to run, it's hard."

Johnsons went on to describe the two keys to balance that he has found really useful: discipline and communication. "Apply discipline to take care of yourself," he said, adding: "If you communicate with others around you, like, hey guys I need help finding my balance, you'd be surprised how fast people come to help you."

"You've got to take care of the thing that allows you to do what you do, and that thing is you," he concluded. "So take care of you and find that balance."

This isn't the first time that Johnson has spoken about how he approaches his work, his family life, and his intense training schedule.

"When it comes to hard work and things I’m passionate about - years ago, I stopped saying 'I have to' and started saying 'I get to,'" he wrote in January. "Big psychological shift on how you approach the daily grind of shit we gotta get done... I 'get to' train hard and push myself to the breaking point. I 'get to' get my ass kicked and come back stronger. I 'get to' be the hardest worker in the fucking room. Because when you 'get to' do the things you love - it’s a privilege."
