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 Unbelievable Factors That Make People Work Extremely Hard

Published

on

Mentors, a strong purpose, and motivational stuff are some of the main factors that have made people work extremely hard. However, there are also unique but not necessarily positive factors that have made people work extremely hard towards their goals. Guess you are ready to know them.

Here are they:

  1. The Desire to Prove People Wrong

Many people have worked extremely hard towards their goals 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 extremely hard. Many bloggers, musicians, and business owners have worked extremely 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.

For this reason, it’s inarguable that competition can force you to work harder whether you like it or not because if you don’t work hard when facing stiff competition, your competitors will become better than you and throw you out of the game.

  1. Faith

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

Recently, I realized that people who believe in the achievement of their dreams often work harder than those who doubt. Doubt drains your energy because it demotivates you, while faith pumps energy in you and 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 some sort of 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 always encouraged to use positive factors to push ourselves harder is because most of the time, factors such as pain, competition, the need to revenge and prove people wrong, work against us.

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

The Top 5 Ways To Embrace Patience

Published

on

My research on successful individuals made me realize that all successful folks were patient. They worked for a period of 3 to 10 years without quitting. For this reason, it dawned on me that I also have to embrace delay whether I like it or not.

However, I realized that embracing delay was pretty hard because I have to work diligently and patiently without getting discouraged even when my results don’t arrive as early as I expected. This realization made me contemplate on why it’s hard for people to master patience even though it’s a primary key to success.

Anyway, I thought about patience for a week and I realized the five ways we/you can be patient

Here are they

  1. Stop Wanting to Prove People Wrong

If you want to achieve your goals so that you prove people wrong you will become very impatient because you will want things to happen as fast as possible so that you appear right. Therefore, to become more patient, avoid wanting to prove people wrong. Just work towards your goals with nobody in your mind.

I loved proving people wrong but I ditched this behaviour after realizing that I usually want to progress quickly whenever I want to use my achievements to prove some folks wrong.

  1. Stop Focusing On the Outcome

It will be impossible for you to be patient if you constantly focus on your results because most of the time, you won’t see the results you expected. For example, if you are a blogger and you are targeting 10,000 visitors per day, you will be impatient and you might give up if you constantly check your stats because it might take long before you reach your target.

However, you will embrace patience if you forget about the results and start concentrating on acquiring the skills and knowledge required for you to achieve your goals.

  1. Know What Makes You Impatient

To embrace delay, you must know the factors that make you impatient and start avoiding them. For me, I avoided competing and comparing myself with others after realizing that these factors make me an impatient individual. It dawned on me that I always feel that my dreams are taking long to come true whenever I compete or compare myself with others.

  1. Understand that it Takes Long to Succeed

One of the main reasons why I’m a little bit patient is that I know that it took approximately 5 to 15 years of hard work for most successful folks to achieve their wildest dreams. This knowledge makes me realize that it might also take time for me to achieve my dreams, and for this reason, I have to embrace patience.  Also, it makes me know that waiting is part of the journey, and therefore, patience is a virtue I must master.

  1. Surround Yourself With Dreamers

You are more likely to be more patient if you surround yourself with dreamers because you’ll realize that their success is also taking long to arrive. My dreamer friends made me a patient individual because I realized that just like me, they are not meeting success quickly despite their hard work. They always make me realize that delay is a normal occurrence to dream chasers, and therefore I have no option but to work and wait.

Conclusion

If we wait long enough, we’ll meet success. Therefore, we must cultivate patience if we want to live the life we want. We must also understand that patience is one of the primary keys to success because it enables us to persevere and persist without being frustrated. It might be hard to be patient but it’s not impossible. If some ordinary people succeeded in life because they managed to be patient, why not us?
