The life of Tom Selleck is inspirational in many ways. He’s an icon in the movie industry, and he inspires people to fight for freedom and try sports too.
Tom had been in a lot of success and failures, and he felt empty within, and that’s when he knew he needs to introspect about the purpose of life. During that moment, Jesus started to direct Tom’s life and told him he needs to be a Christian to become fully satisfied in life.
Tom was part of the varsity team of the University of Southern California before acting became his primary passion. He left school to pursue acting full time. Twentieth Century Fox gave him a contract, and he became a successful actor.
Some of his notable films are Quigley Down Under, High Road to China, and An Innocent Man. He had significant success in television too like winning the outstanding lead actor in a drama series for the Primetime Emmy Awards and Golden Globe Awards for his role in Magnum, P.I.
However, the United States Army drafted Tom from 1967 until 1973, so the time he spent in Hollywood was diverted. Tom had a hard time finding good roles when he returned to Hollywood. But Tom is an alpha male, so he managed to found the right characters for him in cinema and television. And not only that, he became a film producer too.
Tom said, “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you in due time.”
When interviewed by New York Daily News, Tom expressed, “I try very hard to conduct myself ethically, because that’s important to my stability now. We’re a culture that’s so centered on the individual. The culture says that basically nothing is more important than the way you feel. We’re living in an age that celebrates unchecked impulses. I work with exceptional kids, gang kids, deprived kids, enriched kids, and they all have an astounding sense of entitlement. They don’t celebrate earning the privilege of driving at 16. They expect a car. There’s a big difference.”
Indeed, Tom Selleck is grounded even if he’s famous, and hopefully, there will be more inspirational celebrities like Tom!
