Rules of Being Young and Successful


Being young and successful is the thing that we want. We are often hurried, we presume that we must amass just as much money/experience since we're young therefore we can be even more rich and experienced in the future.

Yes this is very true, you would like to start as early as possible, but everyone who only thinks this shallow usually don't make it.

If you think the same as the society think, you'll get only what the society usually get

99% on the planet are sleeping through life, they're not really awake, that is why if you ask them a deeper question in daily life, they're confused, such as "what is success to you", their answer is probably just money, happiness, etc. but they don't really know what it can be.

Happiness for example. Sure if you have money, good friends, good job you could be happier, but that all of it in life?

If you can't define success, society will define it to suit your needs and you will end up doing similar to everyone else and getting just like everyone else.

You know what 'the same' is not? Get a 'good' degree (whatever this means), get a job, got married, have kids, strive to put kids through school to enable them to do the exact same thing while you and the rest of the society, retire, die in mediocrity.

Young and successful is a lot broader than money and relationships

Now i do not mean to say that this ol' corporate world is shit, should it be for you then it's for you personally, but most people are stuck within their shitty corporate job because they don't belong there and still think they still belong there even though they're only raised understanding that it's the only way.

What exactly should you do to know is there a definition of success?

1. Be open-minded

There are thousands of ways to be 'successful', more and more people have done it, they followed their heart and located a niche or even invented their unique industry, one example is what I'm doing now, I once watched a video in regards to a guy explaining how you will find there's career for people who share their knowledge for a job, and here I am.

2. Try things out

I would never be able to find to where I am today basically only listened and knew there was clearly an industry like this. Trying things out continues to be at the heart of my success, I stupidly fell so many times but I always kept moving. However, it's not as simple as point 1, just watching a video, I would not be even remotely interested about watching it if I wasn't ready. What's 'ready' mean? It indicates, you have gathered experience with the mindset needed to move from one passion to an alternative. I was so dedicated to bodybuilding, books, becoming an HR manager, photography, also it all taught me a bit about myself, then when the pieces was formed over the internet, I felt compelled toward becoming things i am now, and just like I always do, I try it, failing so frequently as well, and now here I am. The key is taking action congruent in your 'calling'. Don't worry if the feeling isn't strong, when you have a slight hint of thinking of doing something, do it first on a small scale and decide if you want to keep it up.

3. Reflect

Forming the puzzle pieces is essential, I never understood why I had been so passionate about street photography, no other kinds of photography, just street. Travelling the streets in Europe, I still remember I believe I took greater than 200 pictures everyday every single day, and I realized now that my desire to take photos of people on the streets is because I truly love people. I really do, many people who are baffled by life say they enjoy people, which is good, however they don't understand when I say which i LOVE people.

Also that i'm writing this, I just realized another thing, when I take street photography, I loved taking candid pictures, and why? Now I realize that it's because I love people's expression if they are just not faking it, they're just minding their own business and expressing what you truly feel on the inside. So in retrospect I put a lot effort into learning, reflecting, teaching about authenticity. Because I'm totally captivated by it! Damn, I enjoy writing!

So this is a good tip at that time on how to reflect.. Come up with it. Specifically how you felt about it.


So, the point is, the more you're on your own journey, not another woman's damn definition of 'success', you'll be more and more clear about what you love, what success is to you. And the clearer you are, the clearer what action you have to take, the more clarity you might have, the more you can put massive effort, and large effort drives you to your destination faster.

Until the next time, buddy!
