Top 5 Lessons You Can Learn From Eminem’s Success Story – (Net worth – $190 Million)

Published

on

Marshall Mathers (Eminem), a rapper, actor, and music producer is one of the best rappers in the world.  He has won two Grammy awards and a number of MTV Music Video Awards.  He has also released one of the fastest selling albums in history.

I love Eminem because besides being a successful rapper, he has proved that anyone can defy the odds. Moreover, his rags-to-riches story is inspiring to those who want to achieve greatness.

As one of his biggest fans, I have listened to most of his songs and read almost every story about him. Therefore, I have managed to learn some lessons from him that make me believe in achieving greatness.

Here are five crucial lessons I learned from one of the world’s greatest rappers.

  1. Your Economic Background Does Not Matter When It Comes to Achieving Success

Eminem and his mother once lived in a trailer park. Besides the trailer park, they also lived in public housing projects, and they were so poor that they relied on government assistance.

However, the poor family background never stopped Eminem from becoming successful. He worked so hard and eventually became one of the richest artists alive.

  1. You Don’t Need To Succeed in School For You To Succeed in Life

Eminem proves that your academic performance does not determine what you will achieve in life because, despite his huge success, Eminem was poor in academics. In an interview, he revealed that he failed 9th grade three times, and he dropped out of school when he was 17.

  1. You Can Defy the Odds

When Eminem entered the rap game, rap was considered an African-American art, and people believed White-Americans couldn’t rap. For this reason, people always laughed at Eminem whenever he went on stage because he was white. In his song, Lose Yourself, he raps that he was often, ‘chewed out, and spit out, and booed off stage.’

Eminem defied the odds and became one of the best rappers in the world although he was white. He has sold more than 200 million records across the world.

  1. You Can Use Pain to Fuel Yourself to Greatness

Most of us succumb to depression, claiming that life is unfair to us, whenever we experience painful situations.

However, Eminem is not this type of person. He always used pain to fuel him to greatness. The pain of living in a trailer park and the psychological pain he felt because he lacked enough money to sustain his family made him work so hard.

  1. Never Ever Give Up

Despite being told that he won’t make it in rap because he was white, despite being booed off stage, Eminem never chose to give up.

Most of us would give up if we faced such obstacles. However, after being booed, Eminem always upped his game and went back on stage to rap until people loved his rapping style.

‘I’ve been chewed up, and spit out and booed off stage. But I kept rhyming and stepped right in the next cipher (Rap Competition)’ – Eminem, Lose Yourself

The 5 Major Stages You Must Go Through When Chasing Your Dreams

Published

on

Shows the difficulty involved in dream chasing

After studying the biographies of many successful folks, I realized that all of them went through the same stages of dream chasing regardless of their socio-economic status. I summarized these stages into five stages which I believe you’ll also go through if you are chasing your dreams.

Here are they:

Stage 1 – Idea

Here, you’ll give birth to a great idea that you’ll want to turn into reality. For instance, if you are an aspiring writer, you’ll want to turn your thoughts into a best-selling book, and if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll discover a wonderful business idea which you’ll want to turn into a successful company.

Stage 2 – Enthusiasm

After discovering the idea, you’ll visualize the life you’ll live when you’ll achieve your dreams, and you’ll tell your friends and family about this life. You’ll then research on how you’ll turn your idea into reality, and you’ll start working enthusiastically because you’ll want to live your dream as soon as possible.

Stage 3 – Disappointment

After working for a period of 6 – 18 months, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll make little progress despite working hard. For instance, if you are an aspiring vlogger, you’ll realize that getting 10,000 subscribers is not easy, or if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll be disappointed because your business might fail to make profits.

Besides this, you’ll realize that dream chasing demands funding, but few people are willing to support you. Primarily, you’ll realize that it might take longer to achieve your dreams. These challenges will make you want to give up.

Most people quit chasing their dreams at this stage.

Stage 4 – Perseverance

If you really want to achieve your dreams, you’ll decide to persevere. You’ll face obstacles fearlessly, and you’ll commit yourself to overcoming them. Besides, you’ll avoid everything and everyone that might prevent you from achieving your dreams. Also, rejection, failure, and naysayers won’t stop you from working hard.

You’ll also realize that only those who persevere achieve their dreams, and you’ll work like hell. Moreover, you’ll strive to make the journey enjoyable so that you don’t give up.

Most folks make their journey enjoyable by making friends with like-minded people.

Stage 5 – Success

After working for a long period without quitting, you’ll become highly skilled, and many people will love your services/products. If you are a writer, many people will be willing to buy your books, and if you are a businessman, people will be interested in your products. You’ll then use the money you’ll earn to buy whatever you want and travel wherever you want. You’ll be so fulfilled.

Conclusion

It’s easy to dream, but difficult to achieve dreams. Most people quit when they realize they’ll have to work for a long period before they achieve their dreams. Only those who persevere succeed because they never give up. We must thus join the perseverers if we want to boost the chances of achieving our dreams.

THE END.

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.

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 thus 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 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 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.

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 people to work towards their goals when everything is going well. However, most people get discouraged when the going gets tough. The ability to work when it gets tough is what sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance.

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