For those looking to become successful in 2019/2020 and the foreseeable future, there’s a few elements of success or successful people that you need to be exposed to before you’re likely to bridge over and become a successful individual or entrepreneur.

These 4 exposures are like the 4 pillars of a successful person, without them you’re going to fall flat on your face at somepoint down the line or perhaps even before you start.

 

Exposure 1: Workrate

This one is obvious, in order to become successful it requires a ton of work.

Most people think they know what that means, but unless you’ve seen a millionaire in the office on a Saturday, or a professional athlete in the gym you have no idea.

Most people think that 5 days per week and 8 hours of work per day is enough, a millionaire will do 16 hours for 5 days in a row, then 8 on Saturday and 8 on Sunday as a rest period.

In all honesty the average successful person does more hours of actual work on weekends than the average 9 to 5 worker does all week.

 

Exposure 2: Quality

This is one that so many overlook. In truth it’s becoming less important with things like TikTok asking for zero production cost or value. However things are a little different if you want someone to buy something.

A 10 second sing along might be million view worthy on social media, but try and sell this for $50 and you’ll be lucky to make a single sale.

At somepoint on your journey you need to be exposed to someone, someone else’s product, a website, etc that sits in the top 1% of quality.

This exposure will show you what is expected to sit at the top of any industry. When I first started out with 1STMAN and wanted to do filming, I hired a film crew for thousands. I shadowed them all day, reviewed the end product, then decided to become that good myself.

You need to see what the best are doing. By best I mean, the one’s getting paid the most for their work, because although not neccesary in this era, if you do decide to create a product, course or whatever the quality had better be good.

 

Exposure 3: Wealth

Most people go through life thinking that rich is the person at the end of the road with the $30k BMW and a pool in their garden.

It’s important to be around someone at somepoint early in your career who can drop $100k and not flinch.

The reason this helps you, is because it shows you what is possible and provides added motivation.

As a rule of thumb, usually the higher you aim in life the further you’ll go. Aim for 6 figures per year and you’ll probabaly reach it, but going any further won’t feel real or achievable, plus you’ll be satisfied.

You need to really humble yourself early on and see what real wealth looks like.

 

Exposure 4: Re-investment

It’s great having a lot of money, but many don’t want to part with it once they have it. If they do it’s usually on a new car, jacket, house, champagne, date, etc.

True wealth comes from re-investing in yourself. Give the average person $100,000 and ask them to invest in their dream. I’d doubt that much more than $50,000 tops would go on their dream. There would be a mortgage and new car in their for most.

To achieve large scale success you have to be willing to stay average while you’re rich. Example, that same $100k, a future successful person would put $88k into their dream and save $12k for a yearly wage.

Being around someone who is willing to bet it all on themselves shows you a lot about success and successful people.

They will work 24/7 to earn $1million just to put $500k after tax right back in and live off an average salary.

Even knowing this isn’t enough, you don’t know if you have what it takes to be successful until you earn a heap of money. What you spend it on will decide everything, especially if you’ve struggled and been broke for so long.
