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

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. Eminem proves that your academic performance does not determine what you will achieve in life.

  1. You Can Defy the Odds

When Eminem entered the rap game, rap was considered an African-American art, and people believed that White-Americans could not 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 he became one of the best rappers in the world even though 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 have given up if we could have 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

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.

5 Powerful Success Lessons We Can Learn From Benjamin Franklin

Published

on

I admire Benjamin Franklin because he succeeded in many fields. He was a successful politician, author, inventor, scientist and printer. He was also one of the founding fathers of America. I always wonder how he managed to achieve success in numerous fields. For this reason, I studied his life to realize his secrets of success.

After studying his life for a while, I realized powerful success lessons we can learn from this Great Man.

1.Read, Read and Read.

‘From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books.’ – Benjamin Franklin

Many successful people believe that reading breeds success because it leads to the accumulation of knowledge useful for succeeding. Maybe Benjamin Franklin knew this because he read a lot. He loved reading so much that he read his father’s religious texts because they were the main books his father possessed. His obsession with reading forced his father, Josiah Franklin, to apprentice him to a printer. Many scholars agree that his reading habit played a great role in making him a great man.

2.Never Ever Wait For The Right Moment

If you want to do something, do it. Never wait for the universe to perfectly arrange things for you before you take action.

In 1721, Benjamin Franklin’s brother founded a newspaper. Benjamin Franklin became highly interested in participating in the newspaper, but he believed his position would prevent his brother from allowing him to write. However, instead of waiting for his brother’s permission, he wrote letters and anonymously placed them in his brother’s print shop. People liked the letters so much that they wanted to know him.

Benjamin Franklin never waited for the right moment. He took action when he had an idea and his audacity paid off.

3.Associate With People With Similar Interests

You can progress quickly if you associate with people with similar interests because these folks will help you learn a lot about your field.

Benjamin Franklin knew this principle because he formed an association of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs when he was 21 years old. The association enabled Benjamin to become a better artist and businessman as its members regularly discussed about art and business.

4.Failure is Inevitable

All successful people including Benjamin Franklin failed on their way to success. Despite becoming one of America’s founding fathers, some of Benjamin Franklin’s political proposals were ignored. Furthermore, despite becoming a well-known author, some of his publications failed.

Benjamin Franklin understood that failure is part of success, and he continued writing and formulating more political proposals. He eventually became a successful politician and author.

5.Work, Work and Work

It’s said that Benjamin Franklin was obsessed with work. His biography reveals how he woke up early to work long hours. Besides this, some of his famous quotes such as ‘laziness makes things difficult, and hard work makes things easier’ proved he believed in a strong work-ethic.

Benjamin Franklin knew that his strong work-ethic played a huge role in making him succeed. In his famous essay, The Way to Wealth, he wrote, ‘If You Are Hardworking, You Will Never Starve.’

Conclusion

Just like other successful folks, Franklin was an ordinary individual who adopted the features of successful people. We can also adopt these features to guarantee a marvelous future.
