50 Cent Recently did an Interview with Esquire and The Guardian in which 50 Cent shares his wisdom and thoughts on life in his own words.

In this post we feature a List of the best excerpts from both interviews with 50.

 

50 Cent’s Business Advice

Have you ever seen the movie The Butterfly Effect? If you go back and change one thing, you end up with a different end result. I wouldn’t want to change who I am now, the end result.

The biggest misconception about me is that I have bad intentions. I do what I have to do to get by. I don’t wake up and decide I’m gonna do something to hurt someone. But if that’s the only option for me to move forward then I will.

I will be the person with the least amount of fear in the room when we’re negotiating business, because I’ll weigh it up against situations far more dramatic than a deal going bad – like the loss of my mom, or the confusion after being shot. Not knowing what I was going to do with my life after being shot hurt more than being physically shot.

People who study business and get their Masters are deemed intelligent. I think they just have great short-term memories and retain information long enough to pass exams. If they actually applied that information then we’d have a problem, we’d have an over-population of successful people.

——————
Sometimes you do need to convince yourself through convincing others.

I never saw drug use as a good option. I’d rather have an additional ten dollars than smoke. It wasn’t a decision to not smoke weed. It was a decision to hustle. It was a business decision.

Hustling was my internship.

People who raise their hands deserve to be ahead of people who don’t.

Money is freedom. Money is a private plane. Money is no metal detectionDon’t wait for them to tell you. Tell them.

There are too many entrepreneurs. We need the worker to make the process function properly.

The first time I felt rich was when I had $80,000 inside my house. I saw it as a means to more money.

Money is not going to make you happy. A new idea is what makes you happy.

Obama takes away the excuses.

The best businessmen in the world make a bad deal sometimes. And it’s not usually in a boardroom. Most of them marry the wrong woman. That business deal is the worst business deal of all.

All the women have contributed to my success. Every one.

Always have bail money.

Depression is
 a luxury I still can’t afford.I like generals. I like Napoleon. I like strategy. The majority of them are praised for mass destruction, but it’s exciting to see how it comes to the mind mentally.

Is Charles Manson a serial killer? No, he isn’t, because he ain’t do no killing. He’s a coward. He was just crazy enough to influence people to kill for him. There were a lot of Charles Mansons in my neighborhood. There were no Napoleons.

You need a respectable opponent, but you don’t have to respect ’em. In the end you’re gonna finish ’em anyway, right?

“I always had big ambitions. Big dreams you know what I’m saying. Well I always envision things. What I mean by that is before I used to think of something and just sit there and just be thinking of it. That’s dreaming. When you come up with something and you start figuring out how to execute it. That’s envisioning you know you’re actually attempting to execute it you know I take my idea and I roll with them”. – 50 Cent

Emile Steenveld Speaker and Coach

Some people seem to naturally know how to effectively communicate in a group setting. They can express themselves clearly and listen attentively without dominating the conversation.

Being a powerful communicator is important for several reasons, including building and maintaining relationships, achieving goals, resolving conflicts, improving productivity, leading and influencing others, advancing in your career, expressing yourself more confidently and authentically, and improving your mental and emotional well-being. Effective communication is an essential life skill that can benefit you in all aspects of your life.

But, don’t worry if you don’t naturally possess this skill, as effective communication is something that can be developed with practice, planning and preparation.

8. Choose the right time: Pick the most opportune time to speak to ensure that you have the group’s attention and can deliver your message without interruption.

 

9. Be the unifying voice: Step in and unify the group’s thoughts to calm down the discussion and insert your point effectively.

 

10. Keep responses concise: Keep responses short and to the point to show respect for others’ time.

 

11. Avoid unnecessary comments: Avoid commenting on everything and only speak when you have something important to say.

 

12. Cut the fluff: Avoid being long-winded and get straight to the point.

 

13. Prepare ahead of time: Sort out your points and practice them before speaking in a group.

 

14. Smile and be positive: Smile and nod along as others speak, to build a positive relationship and be respected when it’s your turn to speak.

 

15. Take responsibility: Take responsibility for your own actions and feelings.

 

16. Ask questions: Ask questions to clarify any confusion or misunderstandings.

 

17. Avoid interrupting: Allow the other person to finish speaking without interruption.

 

18. Practice active listening: Repeat what the other person said to ensure you have understood correctly.

 

19. Use your body language too: Use nonverbal cues such as eye contact, facial expressions, and body language to convey your message and build rapport.

 

20. Be aware of the tone of your voice: it should be calm and assertive, not aggressive or passive.
