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.

Top 6 Reasons Most People Can’t Persevere on the Journey to Success

Published

on

Perseverance refers to the ability to work persistently towards one’s goals despite facing difficulties.

After studying successful people for five years, I realized they all persevered since they never gave up despite facing obstacles. Nothing stopped them from working towards their dreams.

Besides successful folks, we can also persevere but most people can’t because of the following reasons.

1.People Don’t Study Success

Studying success enlightens you that difficulties, failure, or discouragement are part of the journey hence enabling you to work in spite of their presence. Moreover, studying success shows you that only those who persist succeed hence motivating you to persevere.

Most people who never study success seldom persevere because they don’t’ understand the journey, and therefore, misinterpret difficulties. They believe difficulties are a sign of failure.

2.The Lack of Self-Confidence

Most people can’t persevere because they lack self-confidence. They doubt their abilities and skills and give up easily when they face obstacles.

Successful people persevered because they believed in themselves. They believed they could overcome obstacles and continued working towards their goals when obstacles arrived.

3.The Myth of Overnight Success

The myth of overnight success has resulted in the inability to persevere because it makes people think success comes easily. This myth has made aspirers believe that success arrives soon after they start working towards it. For this reason, most aspirers give up when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period and overcome several difficulties before success arrives.

4.People focus on the Outcome

Most individuals can’t persevere because they focus on the outcome. It’s hard to persevere when you focus on the results because it usually takes long before we get the results we expect. People who persevere focus on the process instead of the results. They know they’ll get the results they want if they forget about them and work on improving their skills.

5.The Lack of Passion

People who hate their work seldom persevere because they focus on results and misinterpret difficulties. Furthermore, they easily get bored with their work hence making it difficult to work when they face obstacles. Conversely, passionate people persevere because they are obsessed with their work and perceive difficulty as a chance for growth.

6.Focusing on the Possibility of Failure

Focusing on the possibility of failure prevents people from persevering because it discourages them from working towards their goals when they face difficulties. It makes people think there’s no need to continue working because they might fail.

Most successful people focused on success: they believed they’ll succeed no matter what, and this belief motivated them to continue working in spite of discouragement.

Conclusion

It’s easier for most people to work when everything is going well. However, when the going gets tough most people get discouraged and give up. The ability to work when everything is going wrong sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance because perseverance will enable us to achieve whatever we want.

If you don’t give up you can’t fail.’ – Menna Vaan Praag, Successful Author

5 Powerful Reasons Why Passion is a Key to Success

Published

on

I once believed that we don’t need passion to succeed. However, when I started blogging, I realized that passion is a key to success. I noticed that my passion for blogging made me write articles consistently.

Besides this, my research on successful people enlightened me that successful people are passionate about their jobs. They work 24/7 because they enjoy and love their work.

These findings forced me to think deeply about the relationship between passion and success hence making me realize that passion leads to success because it:

1.Makes it Hard for You to Give Up

It will be hard for you to give up on something when you are passionate because you won’t care about the results. You’ll only care about doing your thing, and you’ll do it even when you don’t get the desired results. For instance, if you love singing, you’ll continue singing even when you only have 5 views on Youtube.

2.Makes You a Hard Worker

Passion makes you work more hours because it makes you obsessed with your work. You’ll want to work whenever you find time because you love your work. Besides this, when you are passionate, you’ll work long hours because you won’t be able to tell the difference between work and play. For you, working will be playing.

3.Changes Your Attitudes Towards Difficulties

People who aren’t passionate about their jobs have a negative attitude towards obstacles. They either see them as threats or messages from the universe that they’ll never succeed.

However, passionate people perceive obstacles as an opportunity for growth. They are always eager to overcome them, and they believe they’ll become better at their craft after overcoming obstacles.

4.Prevents You From Wasting Time

If you do what you love, you’ll be obsessed with work because you’ll be excited about it. For this reason, you’ll want to spend most of your time working, and you’ll avoid wasting time on useless activities such as gossiping or liking and commenting on Facebook posts all day.

5.Increases Focus

Passion leads to obsession, which breeds focus. Focus leads to success because it increases the quality of your work as it makes you more skilled and knowledgeable. Besides this, focus prevents you from making mistakes and breeds consistency hence increasing your chances of succeeding.

Conclusions

People who don’t like their jobs seldom succeed because they mostly focus on getting things done. Moreover, they never reach great heights because they usually lack the motivation to improve their skills. However, passionate people have high chances of succeeding because passion increases focus, motivates them to work hard, and changes their attitude towards difficulties. And, lastly, it makes them want to work all the time hence forcing them to avoid time wasting activities.
