Success Advice

Forbes rated Columbia drug lord Pablo Escobar, as one of the richest men in the world in his lifetime. In fact, the Medellin cartel boss was so rich that while in hiding, he burned down more than two million dollars currency in order to warm his daughter, Manuela, from cold.

He was so powerful that even while sentenced to jail, the Columbia government told him to build his own prison can you imagine that!

The prison he built for himself known as La Cathedral, boasted of a Jacuzzi, a rotating bed, a dull house for his children, a nightclub, a football court and everything you could think of. During his time as the Medellin cartel boss, he was earning so much money that he was unable to launder it all.

It ended up being stored in warehouses, farms and houses where billions were said to be lost. This was what his brother and accountant Robert Escobar wrote in his book. “Pablo was earning so much that each year we would write off ten percent of the money because the rats would eat it in storage or it would be damaged by water or lost.”

However, in spite of his great fortune, he was gunned down and killed in his prime and his property confiscated by the Columbia government. Do you call that success? His son Juan in his interview said that despite all the money that they had, there were times he and his father would almost starve to death from where they were hiding.

He said,”Drug trafficking destroyed my family. It gave us the world and then it took it away.” This was what he said about his father. “He showed us the path we must never take as a society because it’s the path to self-destruction.”

Perhaps, a great mind was right when he said, “Don’t call any man fortunate until you have seen his end." There are two paths to riches, the legal and illegal paths.

As you step foot on the later, you must have it at the back of your mind that you have not only traded your peace of mind but also start to dig your own grave. This way seems right but ends in destruction.

To go through it you don’t need to set a goal and all that. In fact, all you simply need is a gun or a criminal mind. Obviously, we are living in a world where a dubious person, a corrupt official and even an armed robber is considered to be successful as long as he has money.

However, the truth is a wealth that robs the mind of peace cannot be defined as success. Success is to get to your goal in life and sleep with your two eyes closed. Success should make one happy and not scared.

If you are rich and cannot close your two eyes to sleep at night, you are not a successful person. Coach Wooden, made use to understand that Success is a peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.

This explains explicitly what the inventor of the basketball Dr. James Naismith meant when he said, “I am sure that no man can derive more pleasure from money or power than I do from seeing a per of basketballs goals in some out of the way places.”

There is no such word as genuine success, success is success and does not have a counterfeit. Therefore, if you are thinking of making it through the back door I am sorry to disappoint you, you have to look elsewhere, because this article is for those who want to accomplish success. Anyway, I know you don’t want to become a criminal.

Nevertheless, if you are thinking of becoming one because you feel it is an easy way out of poverty, I am glad to inform you that you no longer need to toy that repulsive path because this site is here to help you get whatever you want.You don’t need a gun to be rich, what you need is:


1. A goal

To be rich and successful, what you need is a goal not a gun, a plan not a gang! All that you ever need in life you can get by simply setting up a goal and pursuing it. Setting a worthwhile goal and moving into action is a quick way of making money.

It is a get- rich- quick secret. I don’t know why no one is unveiling this obvious fact to kids. Remember, no criminal in history became a billionaire at age 23.

At 23, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was already a billionaire. At 20, the youngest of the Kardashin sisters Kylie Jenner is already worth nine hundred million dollars [$900m]. If you set a goal and do the following things listed below, you will get rich faster than you thought possible.

a. Draft out a plan on how you intend to achieve it

b. Find out what the goal requires and give it

c. Set a realistic deadline and go the extra mile to meet up to it

d. Put something on the line, in the view not to retreat or surrender


Note: You can get rich using a gun but can never achieve success with it. An individual who cannot sleep with his two eyes close at night can’t be said to be successful even if he has all the money in the world. Pablo Escobar is a perfect example.

He had so much money that his problem became how to spend them but was not truly living! From his eldest son confession, you will know the kind of bondage this man was in despite all his Millions and billions.

2. Create a plan

A plan and a dream are like husband and wife without one success cannot be born. After setting a goal, the next thing to do is to create a plan in which to attain that goal. 

3. Attain the hero’s spirit

Only heroes triumph in battle, only heroes achieve outstanding success in life. You can never attain an enviable height if you are not a hero in your innermost self [the core of your nature].There are many things success requires to manifest that you can never give or do if your spirit is at its natural state.

Just as the power of a leopard resides in its claws, the power to effect a change in your finances and every area in which you desire a change resides in your innermost self. This subliminal power is the dynamic ability in man to cause change.

It is called the active force or sublime magnetic force. All successful people whether they were aware of it or not us this spirit to succeed

Therefore, a greater premium and attention must be placed on stimulating your spirit. If you don't you cannot incite it to action. This means that negative attribute such as self-distrust and fear will gain dominion and mastery over you. Remember, self-distrust is the number one cause of failure.

Wealth is not within your reach not because you are not cut out for great things but simply because you have not stimulated your spirit to the state whereby, it can afire you to act upon the thoughts of riches. Successful people who consider themselves lucky are those who stimulated their spirits unconsciously.

How Do I Stimulate My Spirit?

To stimulate your spirit to the hero’s state, you need to acquire and master the intangible forces essential for change called the esteemed virtues. To learn how to stimulate your spirit and acquire the capacity to cause change, i highly recommend The Requirements For Riches a  personal-development book.

Thanks for giving me your time. I wish you a resounding success in your pursuits
