DISCOVER THE ONE SECRET YET SIMPLE PRINCIPLE HOW DRAKE ACHIEVED SUCCESS.
Do you love Drake? Are you riding with him? Apparently, Yes and Yes, as Drake's domination continues with him breaking a 14-year old record for most weeks at No. 1 on the BillBoard Hot 100 chart in one calendar year.
Since first being recognized Drake has catapulted into stardom not only as an artist, but as a cultural maven with October’s Very Own. Sharing the story of the thriving scene in Toronto, Drake has built out OVO from a small-scale blog about his crew to an all-encompassing lifestyle brand, including his clothing company, his record label OVOSOUND and his annual OVOFEST.
Drake has reached great heights in recent years and he continues to create and dominate the global market. As Drake says, “It’s about the experience. If the city isn’t talking about it five, six, seven days later, or if people don’t remember it for years to come, then I haven’t done my job…I’m going to find out what comes after this, but there’s definitely another evolution of Drake.”
“What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve” - Napoleon Hill.
Back in 2007, when Drake was still unsigned, hustling and mapping out his future, he searched online for "world's craziest residential pools." He fell in love with one of the homes that came up and set it as the desktop image of his computer. In 2012, Drake purchased that very same property.
Visualization is what sets successful entrepreneurs apart.
''Yeah, I thought it and I achieved it.” - From “Club Paradise”
''Yeah I thought it and I achieved it'' is one of my all-time favorite Drake lines because it is a direct reference to the book that was the inspiration to create Win All Day - Napoleon Hill’s classic all-time greatest best-seller - Think and Grow Rich. This story shows how Drake harnassed the power of visualization by having a clear picture (no pun intended) of what you want and keeping it in front of you, also known as the power of creative visualization.
“This some sh*t I wrote about when I was broke. See the power of the mind is not a joke.” - From “Both”
One of the principles in Think And Grow Rich is that when you have a burning desire and create a specific goal that is measurable, attainable, realistic and with a time frame for completion similar to a picture, idea, or a feeling in your mind of a particular reality, your subconscious mind goes to work to help create that reality.
By setting specific goals and putting them into written or image form, you tell your brain what to focus on. You then become more attuned to the things in your environment that are relevant to that particular goal. In other words, by creating this mindset as Drake did, you are more likely to see (and therefore, act on) opportunities relating to your goal where you might not have before.
“I always felt like my vision been bigger than the bigger picture.” - From “How Bout Now”
Drake lets us know that he tends to dream big. No doubt, he has employed this principle to not only manifested his dream home but built an entire empire on top of it. Let the success story of Drake be the fuel to your fire & Apply his secret of visualization and Leave Your Mark.
