Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be successful. Not necessarily because I wanted a lot of money, though that is a perk. I wanted to be successful because I knew I could be. There is some obsession I have with appreciating and representing my potential, and I knew that success (both financially and philanthropically) was a good way to gauge just how well I was maximizing my potential. The last 11 years of my life has been a combination of hard work, self-development, and constant study into the habits and mindsets of the most successful people I could find.
Everyday I wake up, Entrepreneur.com, Inc.com, Forbes.com, and Fortune.com all automatically load in my web browser. I pick an article or two every day to read to prep me for the day, pump me up, and remind me that I can and will do it (and in many cases, have done it already.) There is no such thing as the “finish line” for someone like me…nor do I want there to be. A finish line is for someone who wants the race to end! I love working hard, enjoying the fruits of my labor, and creating. My work is not mundane (nor is the work of an entrepreneur hardly ever considered normal). It is your creativity, your baby, and your idea manifested into reality. It’s crazy. And that’s why I always recommend people jump into the awesome, scary, rewarding, challenging, hardcore world of entrepreneurship.
Anyway, one of the articles I read today that I enjoyed was the 7 Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires on entrepreneur.com.
