Was wondering what image would suit this article best and found this, I find it extremely cool.
6/15/2015 update: the book is already published, you can download it here or enter you email in the form to your right and get the first three chapters for free.
I’m almost done with my book (get on the list using the form to your right and I’ll tell you the name and send you a copy as soon as I publish it, already pre-sold a few thousand copies), I was just finishing the editing last night and couldn’t stop thinking about 5 of the quotes I had made up while writing it…
I love those quotes, they are a product of about 17 years of entrepreneurship (8 official) and wanted to share them on the blog too, since you know I love blogging about things that actually matter, and not about using buzzsummo to spot the most shared content LOL.
The first one is my favorite
1 If you haven’t failed at least once, then you haven’t been in business long enough
I have a few friends who started their company about 5 years ago and are doing pretty good… though I just can’t take them seriously, they haven’t failed yet.
Entrepreneurship is tough and things always go wrong at one point or another, but it’s not important how many times you get knocked down, but how may times you get back up (another favorite quote of mine).
The quote really means failure is something normal, you get knocked down, learn your lesson and move on stronger… that’s what i did when I lost everything in 2011, I talk about everything in the book: how I made millions at 21, how I lost it, how i built an online empire and some other cool stuff that will blow your mind, and I know it will cause a blown mind was the reason for writing the book…
one day I was telling a life story to a friend and he said:
“Vladi, you must write a book, I haven’t met anybody with a life like yours”
Enter your email in the form to your right and I’ll send it when I’m done (did I get too pushy? eeeh what the heck, I don’t care cause I know you need this book and will lose a lot if you don’t read it, your choice though).
Got a bit distracted
Failure is something people are very scared of, they are afraid others will look down on them, that they might never build back what they had and crap like that… but failure is actually one of the most important parts of business and making millions.
I’m glad I failed miserably so early in life, so I could learn what most people would never know… and you can’t imagine how much fun life is when you know it.
what is that thing? you know what to do to understand.
2 The amount of invested money is proportional to the growth time
I’m very proud I came up with this quote and am even thinking of patenting it, I’m serious.
You know, all my life I’ve been pushing… ever since I was 13, I have been thinking about how I would be huge and buy mom whatever she wants (she really deserves everything), and you know why it took me that long to start my first real business?
That’s right – lack of money.
You know why it it took me 2 years (and not less) to make this blog what it is? – lack of money
And you know why I made millions at 21? – because I had money to reinvest. Money is everything, I don’t care how it sounds, I don’t care if it makes you feel bad or anything if you don’t have it… you have to realize the amount of invested money is proportional to the growth time.
The more you have to invest, the faster you will grow, if you don’t have money, work and save, or borrow it, or get a loan or email me and we will think of something, I might hire you to get stuff done for me (don’t get this wrong if you are already making money, I’m just trying to help 🙂 ), but find money for your business.
3 Positive thinking is a real thing although it has become more of a business now and is more quackery than truth
You have to be positive, there is no doubt about it, I have always been smiling no matter what, even back in those times I did not know a thing about positive thinking I kinda felt there was no advantage to being negative…
…but you have to be careful about all those quacks sharing dumb stuff all over social media, I wrote this a few years ago:
“People confuse faith that one will prevail in the end with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of current reality, whatever they might be”
I think it fits perfectly, by the way you can go follow this guide to know more about positive thinking and wealth (it was the first thing I published on this blog, it’s a step by step guide how to become huge).
4 The second time is always better than the first
LOL Get that?
This one is actually kinda funny… I was writing about my failure in 2011 and how I rose from the ashes stronger, wiser and smarter and this popped in my head, which turned out to be a cool quote… and the second time is actually always better than the first LOL.
5 As long as you keep moving, things keep happening
I was going to share a marketing quote for last, but this one is better…. ok I’ll share the marketing quote too as a bonus:
“Marketing is finding the way to make the lying not lying”
This one needs a lot of talking, so I’m just going to send you read this article, I have talked about marketing and making the lying not lying in it.
Now back to the keep moving quote… you’ve heard the famous movie line: “we have to move”, well, that’s true, we have to move in order to achieve anything.
These are a few of the quotes I made up writing the book, I hope you liked them, you know what to do if you want more.
Let me know if you liked this article and stay awesome!
Just watched Chappie the other day and when they tattooed him ‘tension’ to be more gangsta, I laughed my ass off
