9 career tips from 50 Cent
Small steps bring big changes
You cant go straight from the dangerous streets (of Reading) to superstardom. Break goals into achievable steps our brains find it easier to tick off concrete objectives than abstract aims, says Dr Heidi Grant Halvorson, author ofNine Things Successful People Do Differently. Instead of do better at work, start with pitch five ideas at team meetings. Pitchin.
Seek ownership not money
Fiddy turned record sales into a label, a boxing promotions company and a headphones brand. The money followed. Own at least one project a month and ensure everyone knows its yours. Being the project-completer is golden. Halvorson says exposure is key to workplace image.
A Cambridge University study found successful entrepreneurs assess danger in the same way as teenage boys, with both more willing to take risks. For Fiddy it meant battling gun-toting crack dealers; for you, employ dangerous boardroom tactics like speaking out of turn, occasionally challenging your boss and taking big gambles. Pimping never was easy.
Don't listen to people who try to slow you down
Ignore criticism. Frustration from your boss doesnt mean he hates you; separate the message from the emotion and examine it objectively later in the day. Remove the insults and you will be left with some useful advice.
Turn shit into sugar
When his label dropped him, 50 Cent made mixtapes, one of which wound up in Eminems office, leading to a m deal. If a project goes awry hold your hands up and offer solutions, says David Pardey from The Institute of Leadership & Management.
Some day everybody faces a bullet with their name on
Fiddy has what Halvorson calls a promotion mindset hes motivated by achieving goals, not avoiding failures. Reframe risks as objectives. Dont go over budget becomes reduce costs by 10%. Besides a drive-by from the accounts head is unlikely.
Your opinion of yourself becomes your reality
If you want Yeezus levels of confidence, fake it till you make it. Harvard University found adopting a power pose for two minutes boosts testosterone by 20%, increasing job performance. Think fists on hips, not gang signs.
Be disciplined in every part of your life
When Mr Cent rebuilt his career he also took his body from bullet-battling rehab to a pimping physique. Exerting that willpower boosts discipline elsewhere. Macquarie University found people who took up weight training were more likely to improve in other aspects of their life. Pump iron before you hit the office so youre always packing for the morning meeting.
Know when to be bad
With a rap sheet including drugs, weapons possession and assault, 50 knows how to be ruthless. Putting an Uzi in your lunchbox isnt wise, but office arguments arent always bad. Ensure they are private, focus on business, not emotion, then allow your more gangsta side out. By which we mean dont be afraid to argue the case for your proposal with a slightly raised voice, bitch.
