P. Diddy’s 15 Tips For Massive Success

1. Goals come first, sleep comes second.

“I was proud of working 18 hours a day and sleeping three hours a night.”

2. Live life as it was intended to be lived, without fear.

“I don’t believe in fear – I live my life without regrets.”

3. Steer your life in the direction you please, you only get one go, hold onto the steering wheel and take your life where you want it to go. Only you can do so, don’t give up control. Don’t put your destiny in the hands of others because if you do, you’ll end up at an unwanted destination. You have to look out for yourself.

“You have an opportunity to be in control of your life for yourself by the decisions that you make.”

4. Greatness is achieved by being consumed in your work.

“My mind is always racing, and always going and always working, and it’s a gift and a curse.”

5. Be the best. Don’t just do it, DO IT. Think long term. The fads will die, but the principles will remain.

“I don’t say it in a cocky way, but I take pride in being one of the best at doing what I do.”

6. The problems you encounter in life make you who you are. Don’t resist obstacles, embrace them instead.

“I don’t say it in a cocky way, but I take pride in being one of the best at doing what I do.”

7. Never settle. No matter what you have accomplished in life, keep going.

“I can’t say that I’ve fully achieved my dream yet. I’m just starting to evolve.”

8. A dream without belief and action is just a wish.

“If you dream and you believe, you can do it.”

9. You have to be a little bit crazy in order to achieve massive success in life. You can’t be a by-product of mediocre thoughts and mediocre realities.

“It’s okay to be crazy, but don’t be insane.”

10. Take pride in your work, most people just do things for the sake of doing them. If you’re going to do it, do it to the best of your ability or don’t bother at all.

“I got a chance to have my dream come true, and I wanted to make sure I made the decision as to when I dropped my last album. If I don’t feel like this album is an incredible piece of work, then I’m cool with the albums I’ve done. I don’t have to put out another album.”

11. Your work ethic is either going to make or break you.

“I’m in the studio 24 hours a day.”

12. People from the outside just see glamour and luxury, however in order to achieve that, you have to be dedicated to the grind.

“I’ve never really taken more than four days off.”

13. Have multiple hustles. One hustle means you are dependent, multiply your income sources and expand yourself.

“My mother was always working for a job, so I guess I was always trained that I should have multiple jobs, multiple aspirations. And I remember she had multiple aspirations, always hearing about her dreams and things she did in the past and things she wanted to do.”

14. Man up and take responsibility for your own life. No one owes you shit.

“Pray for me: damn, I grind every day for it. If you see me riding in it, it means I paid for it.”

15. Mind over matter. Forget all external expectations, forget your circumstances, forget the doubters, just lock in and do what you do.

“You only live once!!! Get busy!”
