Let’s start 2019 with some valuable secrets on how to actually become successful and make the money you want to make.
Starting is the first most important thing. Don’t wait to learn everything there is to know, mistakes will be made. Learn and improve.
That being said, let’s start with my top 4 secrets to building your empire.
1 – Do what you LOVE(?)
You heard this one before. It’s in every “how to be successful” article there is. But that’s just sugar coating reality. The truth is you will have to do a lot of work you don’t really like but it’s essential.
Nowadays you can be very successful playing video games! How is that possible? Millions are being made in the gaming industry and it’s growing day by day. But if you just turn on your console and expect money coming in, good luck with that. You have to invest in equipment to produce quality videos, you have to develop a funny/attractive personality and you have to put hours and hours promoting yourself, networking and strategizing.
Whatever you do, there’s a lot of backstage work. So keep that in mind.
2 – Follow the people that do what you want to do.
You have this big goal, right? You know exactly where you want to go. And you hang around people with different goals like your colleagues, friends and family. Everyone is going to give you advice in life. Get a safe job, don’t leave your job, play safe. But none of these people have achieved what you want to achieve, so why listen to them? Who would you ask for advice on how to become one of the best football players in the world? A shop owner or an actual football player? So STOP listening to people that don’t have the same goal and haven’t achieved what you want to achieve.
3 – Don’t re-invent the wheel.
There’s a lot of online resources you can use to learn how to get started and scale your business, social media tips, how to sell your product or services. Every piece of information you need, your phone can provide.
Just like this blog where you can find lots of information on how to become successful and create your own business.
Learn how to use the resources you have at your disposal.
4 – Don’t be impatient! Consistency is key!
The final step is just to keep working on your craft and don’t stop. Those “Overnight Successes” the media talks about worked really hard for years before they got noticed. Don’t fall for the “grow fast” schemes. If you really want it, you’ll get it eventually. It’s not what people want to hear, but it’s how it works. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in one day.
Let’s start 2019 applying those tips and start building something that will bring value.
