Never Too Young to Be Boss
Throughout my time I’ve noticed a lot of people who are extremely plain in their way of thought. They think inside the box, if you will. I know that everyone puts one pant leg on at a time, but there is a problem with the mental state of the kids growing up in this society. They believe that if you do well in high school, then go onto college and finish well then their life will be set. Life doesn’t work that easily. If you’ve got millions of others who are doing the same thing as you, how can you really prosper if you don’t have the necessary connections or if God-forbid your marks aren’t as good as someone elses. The world of business can be entered quite early in a person’s life. First of all I encourage kids to go and try to get jobs early in their lives so they learn the value of the dollar and understand that working for yourself is far more superior in every which way than working for someone else while getting exploited. And the earlier you start developing your skills in looking outside the box and doing things that not everyone else is doing then the less crap and less mistakes you’ll have to deal with in the future. And trust me, it’s best to go through difficulties while you’re younger, with less responsibilities, and with no dependants weighing down on your shoulders setting in the fear in you to take risks. While still in school, children should seek various means to succeed in life which will mark their superiority over their future competition.
Analyze Your Personal Success
If you’re anywhere from 18-30 years old and you feel like your talent will shine through sometime in the future or that everything will be nice and dandy once you’re done college or get promoted, the fact is everything may not work out as you hope. And the older you get the more you come into grips with that depressing fact. It’s important to try and grow with the knowledge and talent you already have. Grow outside of the regular school or even work curriculum. When you get out of lecture, don’t rush through your readings and go out to enjoy a beer in the pub, thinking that you’re on top of schedule. Set goals for yourself that are outside of just doing the things that are assigned to you. And getting a minimum wage job isn’t what I mean either. What I mean is set a goal such as, “I will finish writing a book this year that I started last summer” or “I will push myself to getting that Real Estate license I have been putting off for sometime now and work as an agent part-time by next spring.” Try not to limit your goals to things that have limited room to grow. Try to create goals that are attainable and will have a large and definite impact on your future.
Let’s Look at History
Most of the biggest names in history have achieved their great discoveries or have began their ever-growing careers early in their lives. Imagine, by the age of 27 Karl Marx wrote a praised novel called “The German Ideology” and by the time he was 30 he wrote “The Communist Manifesto“, a book that stirred revolution in almost half the world. By the age of 28 Bob Marley was on his first major tour with The Wailors promoting global peace and love through music. Then there are people like Che Guevara, Mozart, Plato, and loads of others who have achieved extraordinary heights before they hit 40. But that’s a long time ago when they didn’t have the technological opportunities we have now. We have the ability to start our businesses after becoming legal adults, we can spread our words to millions of listeners over the internet and we can gather, and raise the sleeping minds of masses from any part of the world.
Looking at the Sun Don’t Pay
Remember, that unless you’ve got some rich daddy that will support your ass through the good, the bad, and the ugly, then you need to realize that life isn’t all about glamour, and the younger you start developing your independence, growing your experience, setting big goals for yourself and actually fulfilling them rather than procrastinating on them, the bigger chance that you will become a boss in your lifetime. And the younger the better, because you’re never too young to start thinking like one. So in the wise words of Tupac Shakur, who also took his skill and created something out of nothing to reach world fame at a young age, “Get off your ass if you plan to be rich.”
