Hard work pays off.
One of the best pieces of advice I got was from my mentor Jemal King, The 9-5 Millionaire.
He said, “Your level of exposure determines your level of success.”
Jemal is one of the fastest-growing personal development teachers in the financial industry. As the author of 9 to 5 Millionaire, he is also the owner of four multi-million dollar companies. Jemal’s personal story of creating generational wealth is a true testament to what can happen if you are dedicated, consistent, and driven
If I was to have advice for you guys I would just tell you to get around the life you want to live as much as possible.
“If you have the opportunity to be around people that are at the destination you’re trying to get to, expose yourself. Even if you’re just visualising it, hearing it by sitting in a room or listening to conversations.”
Even if it’s not yours yet, if you have the opportunity to be around people that are at the destination you’re trying to get to, expose yourself. Even if you’re just visualising it, hearing it by sitting in a room or listening to conversations.
This will motivate you to work even harder. Because seeing it is possible, becomes a very dangerous thing. The more you surround yourself with it, the harder it will be to ignore your urge to live that life. You become absorbed in the mentality these people have, the work they do and the things they have achieved. When it becomes everything you know, you can start doing it all for yourself. But you gotta do the work still. Ain’t no shortcuts for effort, only for inspiration.
I once saw people like me flying privately and living in houses I only saw on TV. I saw people that were underqualified pull things off and knew because they did something, I had to grind too. I knew I had to hustle just like them. And I did, because my consistent exposure made me think of nothing else.
It pushed me to discover what I needed to do to get to that next level. These people were in places I knew I wanted to be. They made it happen. If I wasn’t exposed to it, I would have just envisioned it and considered it without acting.
Once I was exposed, that’s what made me take it to the next level y’all. That’s what made me realise I could reach their level of success on my very own, with the drive and commitment I continue to put into my business today. The work ain’t gonna stop but it sure got easier. And it’s always going to be worth it. I live life on my own terms, doesn’t get greater than that.
I’m being completely real and honest with you, because I want you to reach next level too!
