When Prince got started out, he mopped floors in return for studio time. This means that doing janitorial work was a crucial aspect of Prince becoming a legendary artist.
One of the main reasons why I love personal development is because you get to learn about all these “success” stories. But really they’re all failure stories.
Every single one of them grinded in the dirt forever before becoming anything worth mentioning.
And what’s really cool is that if you study enough successful people, you begin to see patterns that tie them all together.

The truth is, success in life is 80% mindset (how you think) and 20% mechanics (the physical actions or work).
So whatever you want to do, whatever you want to become… it begins with your mindset and how you think.
If you want to change your life in anyway, you gotta think differently.
And once you upgrade your mental reality–your self-image, your world view, and how you think day to day–then your physical reality will automatically become richer and more fulfilling.
It’s not necessarily easy, but it is that simple.
