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.

N/B- I believe there are many other factors that made this rapper very successful. Feel Free to add any ideas in the comment section below.

If You Are Chasing Your Dream, You Are Fucked

Published

on

This article is strictly meant for all those fucked up folks chasing their dreams. I always give you guys good news, but today I have bad news for you.

I believe you’ve put yourself in serious trouble by deciding to pursue your dreams because you have no choice but to persevere the hardships that all dream chasers face. You’ll have to endure the sleepless nights, anxieties, doubts, the feeling of giving up, and all other ‘negative’ things associated with dream chasing.

The good thing is that you can avoid these hardships by giving up. However, if you give up, you’ll have to live with deep regret and severe depression for the rest of your life because you’ll see people who were less skilled than you achieving what you gave up on.

Let’s say you want to be a rich and famous actor, and you know that you have higher chances of achieving this dream than most people. However, you give up after facing various challenges. A few years later, you see the people you knew were worse than you becoming award-winning actors. How will you feel?

You’ll feel bad, and people will notice it, and they’ll remind you that you had a better chance at succeeding yet you gave up.

That being said, it’s clear that you are fucked if you are following your dreams because you’ve set yourself for either regret or facing the many obstacles dream chasers face.

You’ll live with regret if you give up, and if you don’t give up, you’ll have to work hard till the day you’ll succeed. You’ll have to make lots of sacrifices, face criticism and rejection, force yourself to work every single day and experience slow progress even though you are working your ass-off.

I’m sorry for you dear because as a dream chaser, there is no turning back since you are like someone who landed on an island and burned all his boats. You just have to face the hardships dream chasers face or give up and drown in depression, stress, and anger forever. Either Way, You Are Fucked.

It’s horrifying, but it’s the damn truth. Following your dreams isn’t all fun and games, and so is living with REGRET and drowning in alcoholism because you gave up.

I love you so much. Thanks for reading

5 Proven Factors That Can Make Your Hard Work As Useless As A Politician’s Brain

Published

on

I’m a firm supporter of hard work, and I believe success is impossible without hard work. However, I believe some factors can make your hard work useless. These factors might make you fail regardless of how hard you work.

Here are they:

  1. Playing Safe

Hard work and playing safe equals frustration and lack of progress. Hard work only works if you take risks because taking risks opens you up to many opportunities which can result in you making huge steps in your career.

Therefore, be ready to be left behind if you are a risk-averse hard worker because you’ll always avoid taking advantage of risky opportunities that your competitors will exploit.

‘Travelling on a risk-free road, unfortunately, won’t get you to any important destination.’ – Ernie Zelinski

  1. The Lack of Uniqueness

Your hard work will be as useless as shit if you don’t stand out. In the book, Purple Cow, Seth Godin explains how your business or project might fail to attract customers if you don’t offer unique services or products. Today, the competition is tough, and your talent or business won’t get noticed if it is not unique. To be noticed, you have to offer something unique the way Lana Del Rey does it in the music industry. You have to be remarkable and different because no matter how hard you work, you might fail if what you offer is common.

  1. Poor Social Skills

Your hard work might be as useless as trap music if you don’t have the right connections. Poor social skills prevent you from having the right connections because they push people away. Besides this, they prevent you from effectively networking hence reducing your chances of success. Conversely, good social skills attract success because they make you a good networker who attracts people with the right connections.

  1. Poor Health

No matter how hard you work, you won’t succeed if you neglect your health. Poor health leads to failure because it results in decreased energy and focus levels. Besides this, poor health increases your chances of contracting diseases that might force you to regularly take long breaks from your work hence preventing you from being consistent, thus leading to failure.

  1. A Poor Team

If you are working on something with two or more people, your hard work will be useless as my high school diploma if your partners are lazy, unfocused, risk-averse, stupid, egocentric, weed-smoking, alcoholic idiots.  These folks will always drag you ten steps behind every time you make a huge step forward. Besides this, you will also waste lots of energy and time trying to make them a suitable team.

All people who succeeded after working with a team did so because they worked with team members who were as determined and focused as them. Therefore, realize that your hard work will be wasted if you have a poor team.

Conclusion

Working hard and still failing is a depressive thing. Therefore, we must always pinpoint the factors that can make us fail regardless of our hard work. I believe there are many other factors that can make an individual’s hard work useless. You are free to add these factors to the comment box below.
