Mental success - Having a stress-free life. I’m not talking about settling for an average lifestyle. What I mean is, if a certain idea, business, situation, doesn’t work out as planned, you’ll be fine and mentally ready to start venturing into a new idea once again. Here’s how I personally view stressful/pressuring events: one day, I’ll be the CEO of an extremely big company, even bigger than what I’ve already created. Everything I’ve dealt with or am currently dealing with are called ‘typical situations.’ What are typical situations? For instance, fear of public speaking, nervous on a date, nervous when talking to a client on the phone, not being able to complete a task on time, etc. Essentially, all of these are scenarios are warming me up to deal with the real world. Using these typical events as stepping stones, I'll be more confident when dealing with real-world situations - whether that’s settling 8-9 figure deals, closing high-end clients, dealing with life- threatening (business aspect) situations. These typical situations are NOTHING compared to what I’ll be dealing with when I become a Fortune 500 CEO. That’s how I view mental success - being able to mentally determine the scale of your current problem and realizing it’s not as stressful as you thought.
Physical success - This is fairly self-explanatory. Being physically in-shape is not only appealing for yourself and to others, but it progresses your mental health as well. You may or may not be into fitness, but I’ll talk about how fitness has helped my businesses these past few years. Starting at the age of 17, I started going to my local gym on a daily basis. 4 years later, I haven’t missed more than 10 gym sessions. This has helped me develop a routine & schedule, to stay on top of my goals. It takes 21 days of doing something to turn it into a habit. Once you’re in the fitness industry, you’ll realize a dramatic difference in your lifestyle. Your health, your confidence, your ability to think clearly - everything changes.
Financial success - 'Financial freedom' is when your passive income exceeds your expenses. What is financial freedom to me? Being able to do what you want, when you want, with no one to answer to. No 9-5 corporate job, no boss to answer to, no schedule to work to. I’m not talking about a lazy lifestyle. I’m talking about working 20 hours a day for yourself to avoid working 8 hours for someone else - ALL to build towards your goals. I don’t consider myself as financially successful yet. I can’t buy whatever I want, whenever I want.
Spiritual success - This aspect of success is overseen and underestimated. What is spiritual success to me? Knowing where I am in life, where I want to be, and how to get there. That’s not all - spiritual success is also being realistic with your goals and your current situation. If a current business isn’t successful, you can’t hope for a miracle to happen and say it’ll take off and make you 6-figures next month or next year. You need to make change. Upgrade it, develop it, market it. When I first started my Instagram page, I wasn’t making money. I mean, I was making a few hundred dollars from advertising but that’s not something you can make a living off of. I realized that and decided to make change. I researched, I experimented, I failed, and then I succeeded.
