3 Things You Should Give Up If You Want to Be Successful

Everyone wants to learn how to become successful.

But very few are willing to work for it.

It’s like how everyone wants to go to heaven.

But nobody wants to die to get there.

The problem with most people is they think the road to riches is easy. Then right when they start getting a little bit of results and a little bit of confidence in business.


Life punches you in the face and you’re forced to either give up or get up.

I wanted to quit so many times in the process. But because I gave up these 3 things, everything became a lot easier.

Let’s take a look at these “three things” and see how we go about getting rid of them!

#1 The ‘HOW’ Mentality

So many people are like

“How do I do this?” or “How do I do that?”

Well, the first thing that you guys need to understand is that it doesn’t really matter HOW you do things if you do not know WHY you’re doing things.

Because the why is what motivates you to actually go through the hardships when you’re failing.

That’s what can inspire you to keep on going.

So many people that come up to me like my main competitors…

They’re always focusing on the how but they never truly get it.

Because all the how is it could be Shopify, Amazon FBA, social media marketing agency or it could be Facebook ads.

The how doesn’t matter because it’s just a vehicle.

And if you don’t have gasoline in the vehicle, it’s not gonna go anywhere.

As for me, it doesn’t matter what vehicle I have because my WHY is so much greater than any difficulty that any how can happen.

I remember when I was in college. I would come back home every single six months.

My mom was working 16 hours a day..

My dad was working three jobs just to pay for my dental school.

And it was so tough for all of us.

It feels like each time I arrive home, I saw my parents literally getting older and just super stressed spending all this time at work. .


Struggling and going through their debts to make sure that me and my little sister get to college.

It was kind of like the ones you saw in a flip book animation sequences like you see Mickey Mouse and stuff like that…

Except here, it wasn’t a TV show.

It’s my parents, struggling, and going through pain and hardships and just getting older.

I just realized that it doesn’t matter how hard things get because I know that it’s never gonna be as hard as what my mom and dad had to go through.

So it didn’t matter what hows did I do because my why triumphed any amounts of difficulty and hardships that I had to go through.

#2 The Negative People

If you want to become successful, you have to give up negative people.

The thing about this type of individuals, especially when it comes to entrepreneurship is… IT’S POISONOUS.

I remember when I was in college when I was just hanging out with a bunch of my friends. .

Guys, no one supported my dreams, goals and  ambitions.

It’s kind of like a flower.

If the flower is not growing, you don’t fix the flower.

You pick it up and then change its environment.

Change the soil and nurture it.

Water it to make sure that it’s in a good position and environment to grow.

And that’s the exact same thing with entrepreneurship.

If you want to become successful, you need to be willing to change your environment so it will help you out in the end.

#3 The Need To Try Doing Things On Your Own

There’s a reason that Tony Robbins says that,

“You can always see who the pioneers are because they’re gonna be faced down in the dirt with arrows in their back.”

When I first started in entrepreneurship, I knew that I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel because there were people that were already on the same mission that I was on.

People that were already further ahead than I was but have already made every single failure that I possibly could have made.

So instead of me making the same failures…

I just saw what they felt when they failed and I learned from their mistakes.

“A smart man will learn from his own mistakes, but a wise man will learn from other people’s mistakes.”

That’s why you can always learn from the people that have the results that you want because of the fact that they’ve already done what you are trying to do.

That’s exactly why I made these blogs and my own YouTube channel.

It’s to help the next generation of entrepreneurs.
