SUCCESS

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 50 Cent because, despite becoming a best-selling rapper, he has produced several movies including, POWER, which is the latest and most watched TV show. Similarly, apart from topping charts in the Showbiz industry, 50 Cent has also succeeded in the business industry. For instance, he launched the G-Unit Sneakers, and also partnered with Glaceau, a beverage firm.

Besides this, 50 Cent has also acted in several movies including Get Rich or Die Trying, and Escape Plan. He has also 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 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 decision might lead to 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 also 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 started rapping when he was 20 years old. However, he did not become famous until Eminem signed him and he released the album, Get Rich or Die Trying, in 2003, when he was 28 years old. With this in mind, it is clear that 50 Cent had to be patient for almost 8 years before his music dream came true.

However, many people today are impatient as they want overnight success. Today, people quickly give up after a few months of working towards their goals. If it was not for 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. It is, therefore, necessary for you to embrace patience in your 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.

SUCCESS

6 Types of People Who Progress Faster

Published

on

It recently dawned on me that even after working, praying, and believing, the progress towards success is usually super-slow for most of us. However, there are six types of people who seem to get ahead faster. These guys make quick progress, and for this reason, everybody around them believes they will succeed. These guys are ordinary individuals with exceptional characters.

Here are they:

  1. The Passionate

Passionate individuals progress quickly because they are obsessed with their work. They work all the time without getting tired because they enjoy their work, and don’t perceive it as work. Their work ethic makes them progress quickly because they do more things within a short period.

A passionate person working 16 hours a day is more likely to get ahead faster than an individual working 10 hours day.

  1. The Strong Willed

Strong-willed people are highly determined folks who will do whatever it takes to succeed. They progress quicker because nothing can stop them on the road to success. Obstacles never slow them down because they will do everything they can to quickly overcome them.

Besides this, they never waste time thinking of past or possible failures because they only focus on achieving their goals. They fully utilize the present moment and do whatever it takes to meet success.

  1. Highly Self-Disciplined Individuals

Highly self-disciplined individuals progress faster because they work even when they don’t feel like working. Passionate individuals might progress slower because they might stop working when discouraged or when they don’t feel like working. However, self-disciplined individuals, work even when demotivated, and they don’t need huge doses of motivation for them to keep moving forward.

Furthermore, self-disciplined individuals progress quickly because they seldom get distracted. They never allow anything to stop them from getting things done.

  1. The Risk-Takers

Risk-takers fail a lot. However, they get ahead faster than those who play safe when their risks pay-off. Risk takers also learn to overcome the fear of failure hence resulting in them progressing quickly because they try out many things, and fail forward. Lastly, risk takers learn a lot from taking risks, and they also meet many opportunities that come from risk-taking.

‘Progress always involves risks. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.’ – Frederick Wilcox

  1. Emotionally Intelligent Individuals

Emotionally intelligent folks progress quicker because they know how to relate to people. Also, people love to do business deals with them because they are supportive and likable. They, therefore, get ahead faster because they can team up with many individuals and work towards a common goal.

  1. Individuals who focus on one thing

Individuals who focus on one thing progress quicker than those who invest their efforts in many things/projects. Many individuals usually progress slower because they have a plan B which they also work on because they fear that plan A might fail. Little do they know that having a backup plan slows them down because it divides their attention.

If two people want to succeed in music, and one dedicates all his time on music, while the other one only practices music for 5 hours a day, and uses the rest of the day to work on another project that might provide income in case he fails in music, which of the two will progress faster?

People who have backup plans move slower because they focus on failure and they never trust in their dreams/projects, and abilities. They mostly concentrate on things that will help them in case of failure. However, people who die with one plan/project often succeed quicker, because they believe in themselves/their projects, and they give them 100% of their time and effort.

‘There is no reason to have a plan B because it distracts you from plan A.’ – Will Smith

Concluding Remarks

I always wondered why some people progress quicker than others. For this reason, I studied a number of successful people and I realized that passionate, strong-willed, disciplined, risk-taking, emotionally intelligent individuals, and those who focus on one thing often succeed faster than the rest of us. However, there are many more types of people who get ahead faster, and you are free to mention them in the comment box below.
