How Diddy Became Successful:
Diddy Says You Get Out Of It What You Put Into It:
P Diddy stated in an interview with rapper lil wayne, that “you get out of it what you put into it, the game is so simple.” (click here to watch that diddy and lil wayne video) This is evident in his childhood, he worked many jobs everything from a bus boy to working at a gas station. He even lied about his age to get a paper route job because he wanted to start making money. He also once said “Sleep is forbidden. When I’m working, I’m a machine and I don’t look at other people like they are human.” This reflects on how Diddy became a successful businessman, not only in the music industry, but also in other business ventures. He is known as a “workaholic” for a reason.
Diddy Believed, Believed, Like He Never Believed Before:
On BET Diddy clearly says “a lot of people ask me how did I get to this point, where I’m at, It’s my belief, like I believe, I believe, I believe so strongly.” Once he BELIEVED that he would make it big in the music industry, P Diddy wasted absolutely no time, he dropped out of University to enter the industry. He cut off all ends of retreat, because he truly believed that he will become a massive success. His beliefs motivated his actions, and he was able to take intuitive actions to manifest his successes.
Diddy Kept The Vision Alive At All Costs:
When Diddy was working for Uptown Records, he didn’t see eye to eye with them because his vision was different than theirs, and as a result he was eventually fired. But he kept his vision alive and started his own label, BadBoy Records. “To succeed in anything in life you need a vision. If you can’t see the forest through the trees, you need to chop them mother f*ckers down.” and in his case, once he chopped the trees down, he achieved everything he envisioned.
“Don’t ask what the meaning of life is, you define it” – Quote by P Diddy
Little Known Success Fact:
When Diddy was young, he ran a paper route, but what a lot of people don’t know is that in this job, Diddy started thinking like an entrepreneur. First of all, he was too young to even start the job so he lied about his age, then, he would do things such as take other people’s paper routes for a percentage of the profits. He was hungry for the money.
“I’m trying to be somebody. I was like, I’m gonna be the biggest. I’m gonna go down in history as being one of the best music men and businessmen in entertainment. The people that I’m going to be greater than are Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, and Clive Davis.” – Quote by P Diddy
