The other day I watched the latest Nirvana documentary (Montage of a Heck) on Kurt Cobain, the lead singer of the band and being a massive fan, it is needless to say that I couldn’t wait to see this film.
The reason I write about it here is because at one point in the documentary close relatives, friends and members Nirvana had, mentioned that one of the reasons they became so hugely successful, is a very simple one.
Besides the fact that Kurt Cobain was massively talented, he also had this urge to become better than everyone else. He didn’t want to be an average band playing in average surroundings.
In many ways being wealthy is the exact same thing!
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
It’s not hard to continue living the way you do. It’s not hard to complain and hate your job. I did it for a few years.
But now I’ve come to the point where I would rather give it all and try my hardest than continue rotting away slowly day by day.
The only way I feel my success will come is by taking a risk and having that push behind me. If I don’t succeed I have to get back to the routine I hate and actually fear so much.
So many of my idols have made this risk in their life one way or another and they all mention how it was the key to success. Here’s a few of them if you’d like to read up about it:
- Arnold Schwarzenegger – Moving to another country with no knowledge of the language whatsoever
- Mark Zuckerberg – Left Harvard to invent Facebook!
- Bill Gates – Same as above to create Microsoft
- Walt Disney – Was fired from a newspaper because he wasn’t creative
- Michael Jordan – Was thrown out of his basketball club! Now known as worlds best basketball player ever!
Unlike these men I don’t have a special gift or creation waiting to be realized. I’m planning on achieving my goal much simpler. Find out how by clicking here!
Take It Easy!
Compared to the people mentioned in the above list, we have it a lot easier and a lot more resources to achieve a wealthy lifestyle (Read how here).
We don’t need to necessarily achieve greatness and become legends like the above mentioned people.
Hopefully I will be part of the elite as well 😉
But what I’m trying to make clear, is that all we need is access to a computer and internet and a few bucks to invest and we could soon be lying by the beach and wake up when we want to.
Do you like your current situation or do you think you deserve a better lifestyle as well?
