In the present day scenario, entrepreneurship is the most desired occupation. “I want to be my own Boss” is the motto of almost every other youngster today.
There has been a lot of changes in the market. Now it does not offer the same opportunities and benefits which it had in the past. Thus, the growth of start-ups and the entire system that accompanies it seems to be moving towards a sort of start a factory. Despite having a lot of zeal, to achieve immediate victory in this area is it difficult toil.
It is said that a Start-ups may bring you One Step Closer to either heaven or hell. But it’s you who can remove the word ‘hell’ and give all the place to ‘heaven’.
Once you embark on this journey life will throw tremendous blows at you. But always remember one thing no matter how hard it becomes, life is a journey that must be travelled. You need to cherish the journey with the same intensity you cherish the destination. I want to share the life story of Mr Tai Lopez to all those who feel like giving up and think that one misfortune in the life this the end.
CHILDHOOD AND EARLY LIFE
The very beginning of his journey was full of instability. As a child, he had many soar memories. His family underwent a lot of hardships. His father got arrested and his parents couldn’t give much time to him. Somewhere this thought came to his mind that his father doesn’t care about him. Since his childhood, he witnessed a lot of trauma. He is also a college dropout. His life was messed up. He then joined the long list of entrepreneur college dropouts and ended up completely broke (sleeping on his mom’s couch) until he talked five multi-millionaire entrepreneurs into mentoring him.
The only thing that I believe changed Tai Lopez’s life was his courage, his courage to ask himself if this is it? If this is the life he wanted to live for the rest of his life. And the answer was a clear NO.
FIRST POSITIVE CHANGE
He remembered that his grandfather was successful and wise, so Tai decided to send his grandfather a letter, requesting for answers to living a successful life. What he received from his grandfather was not a golden piece of advice, instead his grandfather’s response disappointed him at first. The letter read, “Tai, one person does not have the answer to everything. Sorry Tai I can’t help you but, you can learn from many through books…”
Along with the letter was a bunch of books and this letter landed him in the jungle of books and from then on he learned a lot.

THE EMBARKMENT OF HIS SUCCESS STORY
At the beginning of his journey, he didn’t have any degree, jobs, reserve. With the help of an advertisement, he approached Mike Stainback and just said one thing to him “sir I don’t know much about you apart from the fact that you are a successful man. I just want you to teach me how to make money and I will work for free.”
On hearing this Mr. Stainback said that he was looking for someone like him for 20 years. Mike gave him an office of his own and said that if you listen to me then one day you will hug my neck. The time when Mr Tai Lopez began his journey he didn’t have even a proper office and his first task was to call people and he was rewarded few percentages of the money he made from them without any guarantee. And that was indeed a challenging task, he faced lots of rejections, nightmares and a bunch of difficulties. Learning from those experiences he became more curious and creative and he tried different things. Within 9 months his life changed, in this span of time he took a jump from $0 to a way better earning.
Even successful people undergo a lot of strain, stress and intricacy. No business or enterprise can reach the heights of success without climbing the first step called struggle. When you face difficulties in life overcome them. Never think that life has come to an end, fight back like a warrior. If the path on which you are walking has thorns on it, it’s you who has to pick them up and walk ahead. Life is like a roller coaster ride it has its own high and lows so don’t get disappointed in hard times and just keep working. The idea of challenges is to test your courage and to make you stronger.
Even the pyramids were built with the planning, same goes for any business and enterprise it also requires planning so plan, work and execute. No matter how tough things are.As Confucius wisely said- “The man who moves mountains begins with carrying a small stone”. You cross every step in life that comes in front of you, you will do wonders.
