It is very much obvious you’re an ambitious person. That’s an excellent thing.
But I tell you what, rather than wanting to be like Dangote, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, or Jeff Bezos, I suggest you realize yourself fully!
To do so, you will be able to draw inspiration from the mentality of these great entrepreneurs.
First of all, the first thing you will have to do is to never give up on your dreams, even the craziest ones. Jeff Bezos has always dreamed of going to colonize space, and everything he’s ever done is aimed at enabling him to conquer this incredible goal.
Then you’ll have to accept being misunderstood by others.
Your plans may seem crazy to others, but you will have to keep believing in yourself no matter what happens.
These great entrepreneurs also have a rather incredible record of failure that you must adopt immediately.
For them, failure is part of the road to success. If you never fail, it’s clearly because you don’t innovate enough. You are not looking to leave your comfort zone.
But your comfort zone is your enemy if you want to succeed at great things like Steve Jobs or Jeff Bezos.
You have to see success as the result of a succession of failures that will have allowed you to understand what didn’t work. After each failure, you will have to adapt to do differently the next time.
Like these entrepreneurs, you must seek to bring value to others.
Every obstacle and every problem you face is a potential opportunity if you can see things the right way. By finding solutions to these problems, you can help others.
The more people you help with your solutions, the more value you will bring, and the more money you will be able to generate.
Because at the end of the day, I guess that’s what motivates you with this question.
There is nothing wrong with that, but never forget that money is not a real purpose in life.
Those great entrepreneurs who have become rich have not done so by aiming for that first, but rather by seeking to bring more and more value to others. Never forget this, because it is the key!
