The Four Major Factors That Made Curtis Jackson, a.k.a 50 Cent, A Very Successful Individual

Published

on

50 cent, also known as Curtis Jackson is an outstanding businessman, musician, writer, actor, and film producer.

I highly respect him because, despite becoming a best-selling rapper, he has produced several movies, and he is also the co-executive producer of the latest and most watched TV show: POWER. Besides producing, 50 Cent has also acted in several movies including Get Rich or Die Trying, and Escape Plan.

Furthermore, 50 Cent has also succeeded in business, and he has written a best-seller, The 50th Law, with one of the world’s best authors, Robert Greene.

With this in mind, it is clear that 50 cent is an entrepreneur worth to be examined. Today’s article analyzes the 4 things that make him a successful individual.

50 cent is a

  1. Hard-worker

In a certain interview, 50 Cent revealed that while he was not working on a song, he was working on a movie, and while he wasn’t working on either a movie or a song, he was working on his business. When asked when he sleeps, 50 Cent said that he rarely sleeps because sleep is for broke people.

Besides this, his friends reveal that in his early days in the music industry, 50 Cent worked on his music skills night and day, and while his friends went out partying on weekends, he busied himself with selling drugs. Therefore, 50 Cent seldom rested, he toiled and strived enthusiastically and he has many things including a multi-million dollar net worth to prove that HARD WORK PAYS.

  1. Highly confident

50 Cent is a very confident individual. In an interview on the Tavis Smiley TV Show, he revealed that he always believed in his abilities so much that people mistook his confidence for arrogance.

Besides this, in his book with Robert Greene, The 50th Law, 50 Cent writes that he succeeded in life mainly because he often had the confidence to change the direction of his life even when it appeared that the change might result in failure. Also, he writes that his confidence always allowed him to make risky investment moves that a large percentage of people often avoid.

  1. An Investor

Besides partying and ‘pimping,’ 50 Cent also invested the money he gained from music in various industries including the stock market, the real estate, and the mining and precious metals industry. For instance, in 2008, he bought an equity stake in a certain mining company in South Africa, and later, he invested in Hang/w, a mobile app that has had more than a million downloads since its launching in 2013.

  1. Very Patient Individual

50 Cent had to be patient for almost 8 years before his music dream came true.

He started rapping when he was 20 years old but he became famous when Eminem signed him and he released the album, Get Rich or Die Trying, in 2003, when he was 28 years old.

If it was not for his patience, 50 Cent could not have been a famous actor, investor, writer, and producer because his success in his music career is what paved the way for his success in other ventures. For this reason, patience was also a crucial factor in making 50 Cent the person he is today, and it is, therefore, necessary for us to embrace patience in our journey.

5 Powerful Success Lessons We Can Learn From Benjamin Franklin

Published

on

I admire Benjamin Franklin because he succeeded in many fields. He was a successful politician, author, inventor, scientist and printer. He was also one of the founding fathers of America. I always wonder how he managed to achieve success in numerous fields. For this reason, I studied his life to realize his secrets of success.

After studying his life for a while, I realized powerful success lessons we can learn from this Great Man.

1.Read, Read and Read.

‘From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books.’ – Benjamin Franklin

Many successful people believe that reading breeds success because it leads to the accumulation of knowledge useful for succeeding. Maybe Benjamin Franklin knew this because he read a lot. He loved reading so much that he read his father’s religious texts because they were the main books his father possessed. His obsession with reading forced his father, Josiah Franklin, to apprentice him to a printer. Many scholars agree that his reading habit played a great role in making him a great man.

2.Never Ever Wait For The Right Moment

If you want to do something, do it. Never wait for the universe to perfectly arrange things for you before you take action.

In 1721, Benjamin Franklin’s brother founded a newspaper. Benjamin Franklin became highly interested in participating in the newspaper, but he believed his position would prevent his brother from allowing him to write. However, instead of waiting for his brother’s permission, he wrote letters and anonymously placed them in his brother’s print shop. People liked the letters so much that they wanted to know him.

Benjamin Franklin never waited for the right moment. He took action when he had an idea and his audacity paid off.

3.Associate With People With Similar Interests

You can progress quickly if you associate with people with similar interests because these folks will help you learn a lot about your field.

Benjamin Franklin knew this principle because he formed an association of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs when he was 21 years old. The association enabled Benjamin to become a better artist and businessman as its members regularly discussed about art and business.

4.Failure is Inevitable

All successful people including Benjamin Franklin failed on their way to success. Despite becoming one of America’s founding fathers, some of Benjamin Franklin’s political proposals were ignored. Furthermore, despite becoming a well-known author, some of his publications failed.

Benjamin Franklin understood that failure is part of success, and he continued writing and formulating more political proposals. He eventually became a successful politician and author.

5.Work, Work and Work

It’s said that Benjamin Franklin was obsessed with work. His biography reveals how he woke up early to work long hours. Besides this, some of his famous quotes such as ‘laziness makes things difficult, and hard work makes things easier’ proved he believed in a strong work-ethic.

Benjamin Franklin knew that his strong work-ethic played a huge role in making him succeed. In his famous essay, The Way to Wealth, he wrote, ‘If You Are Hardworking, You Will Never Starve.’

Conclusion

Just like other successful folks, Franklin was an ordinary individual who adopted the features of successful people. We can also adopt these features to guarantee a marvelous future.

5 Unbelievable Factors That Make People Work Extremely Hard

Published

on

Mentors, a strong purpose, and motivational stuff are some of the main factors that make people work extremely hard. However, there are other unique but not necessarily positive factors that make people work extremely hard.

Here are some of them:

  1. The Desire to Prove People Wrong

Many people have worked extremely hard because they wanted to prove the naysayers wrong. These folks wanted to show the people who doubted them that they can achieve greatness.

An example is Arnold Schwarzenegger. This guy worked extremely hard in his acting career because he wanted to prove wrong the people who told him that he won’t be a successful actor since he had a German accent, and a body that was too big for acting.

  1. Competition

Even though I have discouraged competition in my previous posts, I believe that it sometimes makes people work hard. Many bloggers, musicians, and business owners have worked hard because of the fierce competition in their niches. These folks knew that they would fail to secure a sizeable market share if their competitors outworked them.

  1. Faith

A large percentage of successful people succeeded because they had faith in their dreams. Faith made them completely sure that they’ll achieve their dreams if they worked harder, and therefore, it motivated them to work hard.

Recently, I realized that people who believe in the achievement of their dreams work harder than doubters. Doubt drains energy while faith motivates you to push yourself harder because you firmly know that success will come if you toil.

  1. Pain

People also work harder towards their goals if they believe that achieving them will eliminate pain. For instance, the pain of living in poverty motivated Eminem to work extremely hard towards a better life. In some of his songs, the rapper reveals how the pain he felt when he realized that his 9-5 salary could not sustain his family forced him to work very hard in music.

All the pain inside amplified by the fact that I can’t get by with my 9-5, and I can’t provide the right type of life for my family – Eminem, Lose Yourself

  1. The Need to Use Success As Revenge

“Success is the best revenge to pay you back.” – Eminem, Where I’m At.

I know people who are working so hard because they experienced rejection. These folks believe that working harder will make them meet success and make the people who rejected them regret.

Conclusion

Besides faith, the above factors show that you can use negative states of mind to push yourself harder. The main reason we are encouraged to use positive factors to push ourselves harder is that most of the time, factors such as pain, competition, the need to revenge and prove people wrong, work against us. These factors can be advantageous only if you approach them wisely.

What other unique factors do you know that can make people work harder?
