Bad Boy Records CEO Sean “Diddy” Combs has revealed ten ways for any individual to find success and top their competition.
On Diddy’s list, Puff stresses the importance of having a non-stop work ethic.
1. Work hard. Then work harder. 2. Believe. Never lose your faith!!! 3. Count your pennies. 4. Be humble. 5. Listen. 6. Love. 7. Don’t make the same mistake twice. 8. Never settle. 9. Be confident. 10. Don’t get comfortable. (VIBE)
The rap mogul recently revealed one of his biggest business mistakes in a sit-down with FUSE TV host Toure.
“I think one of my biggest business mistakes was not realizing that everybody wasn’t like me. Everybody didn’t have the drive and determination; everybody’s just not built for that. I think that some people need more time, and more nurturing…I mean artists that I’ve had. I’ve gotten older, I’ve become a little bit more nurturing and I’ve been a little more patient.” (“On The Record”)
Last month, Diddy launched a new website called “DiddyBlog.com” which focuses on motivating people.
“The blog is an all 100 percent positive blog,” Diddy said in a video. “It’s about inspiring you, motivating you, empowering your dreams. It’s not about any news about who’s dating who, who’s not doing good, who got exposed today, who’s this, who’s that, you can go to the other sites for that. It’s about motivation and inspiration and love — the love movement has begun. Even haters are allowed to come to DiddyBlog.com. It makes your teeth whiter. We want all of your advice, your constructive criticism, your positive notes because we want to make DiddyBlog the best it can be and we want you guys to give us the time to make it the best it can be. Can you imagine that I will not be selling CIROC on there? I will not be selling Sean John, I will not be talking about my movies or television shows. I can’t believe I’m saying this but yeah, I’m saying it. No Diddy promotions. It’s all about the love. I love you guys, DiddyBlog.com.” (YouTube)
In February, Diddy talked about finding positivity in his life.
“Yeah, I mean, it’s just a point in my life, being in the industry, I have nothing but good things to say to people,” Diddy explained in an interview with radio personality Tim Westwood. “I have nothing but positive energy to give, I don’t care if you like me, you don’t like me. I love you and I’mma keep doing my thing. Hopefully you’ll get it one day but I’ve been blessed to have a lot of fans and a lot of people love me and I just want my injection to be what I feel is great about people. I wanna inspire people — I don’t wanna bring them down. I don’t wanna talk about no BS. I don’t have no time for none of that. I wanna uplift us.” (Tim Westwood TV)
