Auli'i Cravalho is a world-famous actress and singer, but even she knows that it takes a lot of work to make her achievements look easy.

"My mantra is, it takes a lot of effort to make things look effortless," the Moana star and King's Hawaiian spokesperson tells Health. She relates this mantra to what she sees on social media. "What you see is such a small snapshot of what it takes to actually put things together."

Learning this mantra from her mother, Cravalho constantly carries this saying with her. She says the mantra helps her put in her best work behind the scenes so the final product—a movie or song, for example—comes out amazing.

Watch the rest of Auli'i's mantra in the video below.
