Do you ever just look at successful entrepreneurs, writers, artists, and chefs and wonder how they got there? Seriously, some of these people are such geniuses that it’s hard to find a flaw about them. Maybe it’s true that some people are born with some spectacular talent in them somewhere. However, it’s more likely that they worked really hard to get to where we see them now. It’s true, take anyone you idolized and look up their past and you’ll learn that they all struggled through things that the rest of us mortals go through.
Take Dean Graziosi, for example; his parents divorce when he was only three years old. Since then, his mother raised him for ten years until the age of 13. At 13, he had to start living with his father as per agreement. Such drastic changes this early in life can upset a lot of kids and keep them from ever achieving their dreams. Dean Graziosi, on the other hand, was determined. His family moved about 20 times before he was even 20 years of age and finances weren’t easy either.
Despite this, Dean Graziosi still took to the real estate industry and now has a net worth of about $43 million. He’s growing in popularity by the day now, but in the very start he struggled and could hardly scrape up enough capital to buy a trashy apartment, which would later become his first ever successful real estate deal. There are some lessons to be learned here.
Not all of us are born in ideal conditions but that doesn’t really matter for someone who is determined. It’s what we make out of our situation is what matters. Dean Graziosi is just one example.
