Justin Kimbrough is a proud advocate of positive energy and a successful serial entrepreneur who’s on a mission to transform the world.
I spoke with Justin a few days ago and during our discussion, he shared a number of the challenges that he encountered on his journey to success, how he conquered them and how he’s achieved success in business. This will be beneficial to you too;
Have you always wanted to be an entrepreneur from childhood or was it something you picked up?
I’ve always had a different and curious mindset as regards issues relating to money and ways to expand my income stream.
I believe that I was born with a slightly different attitude towards life as people have always told me how unique I am. Most times I get that “There is something about you” comment and I’ve seen it as something to get used to.
Do you think your mindset has anything to do with your success?
A positive and proper mindset is the reason most people achieve success. It’s everything.
If an individual doesn’t have a good mindset, they are as good as being dead and there is no hope for such a person to be successful. My mindset is 100% bulletproof and I don’t care about the opinions of critics or naysayers that come my way. Anytime I fail at something I see it as a fall forward.
If I lose money investing, I see it as an opportunity for the flow of bigger investments, 10x the magnitude of that loss.
You should also bear in mind that everything happens for a reason and it’s all a leading point to the vision that people hold in their heads. It is better to be tough or one might get beat up and fed to the sharks.
What do you think running a successful business requires?
Running a successful business requires faith, hustle, vision, belief, work ethic, self-discipline, self-development and follow up. You must be genuine and transparent with people and see if a product is actually a good fit for them, not just selling them to earn a commission.
At certain points, almost everyone in their lifetime is going to “fail.” The people that manage to get back up after being kicked in the face over and over are the ones that will achieve success. Your friends and loved ones will tell you that your dreams are unrealistic and impossible to achieve, but you should always remember that you must be willing to cut out anybody who brings negativity and doubt to your life.
It doesn’t matter if it’s your mom or childhood best friend, if they’re stripping you off your dreams, then there is a need to be able to separate themselves from them and keep their energy strong and positive.
There are going to be a lot of sacrifices. When friends want to go out to the bars or go to parties, you’re going to have to be able to stay home and miss out on the “fun” because you’re in pursuit of your dreams, day in and day out. Somebody is out working you and if you want to be the best and have the most success you will have to be willing to work overtime on top of what you think is enough.
There is no work schedule. It’s from eyes open to eyes close. Rap and Pop artist RUSS does an amazing job explaining this in his book “it’s all in your head” which he was inspired by Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich”
There are a lot of young people out there who are trying hard to be as successful as you are, what words of advice can you give to them?
I would say the best advice I can give to a young person is to find something they’re interested in, figure out a way that they can make money in that niche, then apply the steps of self-development.
Read business books, find a mentor, exercise self-discipline and think huge. Remember when your parents used to tell you that you could be anything when you grow up, there couldn’t be any statement truer. Shoot for the stars and don’t let anybody give you crap for what you want to achieve.
