PUSHED TO SUCCESS: MARRYING SOMEONE WHO IS SUCCESSFUL

“Pushing to to be greater.”


WHO IS BY YOUR SIDE

Most people who become successful in life do so when they have someone they are in a relationship with by their side. That other person forces you to be greater especially if they are doing well themselves. And that is the push that most people need to get themselves to the next level in life. Now, as for myself, I am building alone. And the downfalls is that I am taking on the full load alone. That can be troublesome sometimes when you need to truly grow, but need the assistance. We all like the think that the independent person is so great, but it can be a drag when trying to build and you have to do things alone. You would be surprised how helpful those other dollars can be when you are trying to make the world work for you.

BE PREPARED FOR HOUSEHOLD HATERS

Your success can be another person’s resentment. And that is someting you could come in contact with when dating or even married. One person is not making as much progress as the other then that person at the lower level resents the other. And it’s easier to resent them than someone in society because you are with them. But the problem is you start to bring that person down, so now you have two unsuccessful people. So you either leave the situation or watch yourself be brought down to the other person’s level. And most people end up leaving especially if they are in a good space.

LAWS OF ATTRACTION

Most people who are with someone, tend to get inspired by the other person. If the person does not inspire you to do better, then maybe they are not the person for you. Because if they are part of your overall success, then they are cntributing to your failure or lack there of success.

BUILD WITH THOSE WHO ARE STRANGERS

“Those who know you won’t help you.”


THEY DON’T KNOW IF THEY DON’T KNOW

When you are building your career in life, you have to remember something. Understand that the people who may help you with the most task in life, will not know you. It will take the people who are strangers to bring you along into that place of success. Crazy, but true; the people who never knew you or met you, are the ones who will undergird you. They know nothing of the previous person that you were from which to judge. So they are more apt to reach into their pockets and spend or do business with you. Because who wouldn’t want to build with the ones they know, but the bigger the inner circle, actually the less the support.

THEY HATE WHAT THEY CAN’T ACHIEVE

¬†Your brain and your understanding of the world, is your reality. And if your brain can wrap around things better than most people then you should reach for the stars. Yet there will always be people who can’t see themselves doing what you do. Or better yet, they have an idea of you and don’t see you as getting to the point where you think you’re going to be. And if you have any chance of being in the position people might see you in, then they will try their best to stop your progression. So you have to remove yourself from them or anybody else with this mind frame.

THEY TEND TO BE LAZY

If you are going to work with people you know or depend on them for help, they are not going to have the urgency that you have in life. To them, they see you as that same old person, and will not take you serious. They my have a hard time removing that part of them that can’t see pass the past. So you have to reach out to the strangers in society.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN LIFE

IN DUE TIME

Many people are wondering how long will it be before they finally punch through and become successful. But it is all in time with patience and due diligence. We are such a now society, that we don’t want to think that it could take fifteen or even twenty years to get to where you have to go in life. But you have to have that mind-frame otherwise you will not get to that place. You would be surprised how many people have the talent to get to a certain place, but they just don’t have that patience. And that is something you must have is the patience and talent to persevere. Because things just take time, a lot a lot of time. So sit back and enjoy the journey through time.

WHAT’S THE RUSH FOR

We all want to be somewhere in life but we want it now. And there is a reason it takes so long. Not just because you need to build your experience and credibility. But you miss out on all those tactile moments of building in your career. And this is important because you will be lost if you don’t really know where you’re going or how you got there. You need to experience the pain because there will be painful days even in success. And without the ability to pull yourself up, you will delve further. So building through the hardship helps you get out of the funk in life.

WHERE I’M WEAK YOU ARE STRONG: WHY DEVELOPING PARTNERSHIPS IN BUSINESS IS BETTER THAN BEING ALONE

building them

When you are trying to make it in business, building business partnerships can aid you in your long term growth. Me myself, I pride on being more of a creative than a business person (crazy considering I have my MBA). So this means either I will need to find a partner, or learn to be the person that is of sound business mind. Because being creative is fine and all, but when it comes to turning your creativity into a monetary gain, then eventually you are going to need to take off the creative hat and put on the business hat. And everything about business that is not creativity takes a lot out of you if you are a creative. Because creativity means creating, but business means listening to other people and foregoing some of those creative ideas. Well, how do you cope in such a space?

learn to let go

As an indie filmmaker, I have all these ideas that I would like to use to create. But at the end of the day, there is something called a budget. And you have to learn to operate within the budget that you are allotted. And that means taking some things out, making the art work in the budget, but not as to sacrifice the idea you had originally intended to promote. And that is tough in a business space, especially if art is the business that is being sold. I want to put it all in, meaning I write a script that is 200 pages, I want a 200 minute film. In reality, that script better get cut down to 105 to 110 pages. The artist that succeeds learns to give a little, the ones that starve never do. So what you should do is build relationships with people who can help you keep your vision, but grow it into a business.

two is just better than one

Yes, you want to do things alone so you can say you did it by yourself. But the work it takes to do it all alone, you really lose a lot of time that could be spent in other areas. So building with someone is very helpful. Like I said, sounds good, but in the end it’s not good. I would love to write, direct, produce, market, advertise, distribute, promote, and collect from my indie films I am looking to make. Reality is, that is just not feasible. You are going hurt more than you’re going to help. So use someone that knows what you don’t know, and they will learn a lot from you as well. And with that you can go on to have other partnerships that will generate revenues for you so you can continue to do what you do more seamlessly.
