Chances are you’ve seen (or heard) of DJ Khaled as he has grown tremendously successful in the past decade.
Personally, I’m a mega fan. My college roommates and I literally listened to him every time we were partying….which was a majority of the week.
It’s college, right?
Anyways DJ Khaled has blown up in recent years and some people doubt his success.
But in reality, he has been incredibly successful because he has great habits…maybe not on the fitness front but no worries he’s happy.
Check out what I learned from DJ Khaled about being successful:
Law of Attraction
Are you familiar with the Law of Attraction?
You might think it’s total BS or you might not have heard of it, let me explain.
When I first read about it in depth it kind of sounded like magic….
Essentially, the Law of Attraction “is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality.”
Simply put, your thoughts turn into things eventually.
If you ever listen to DJ Khaled you will notice he is always vocalizing his thoughts to the world.
This video is a perfect example of “being the best.”
In almost any interview and every Snapchat video, he is always discussing how he is going to make hit records, be #1, and make millions of dollars.
So how you can use the Law of Attraction?
Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.
How often do you hear people complaining about something over and over….only to continue getting that in their life?
People will say “I’m so fat, I’m so broke, I’m so slow.”
You are probably going to stay that way if you keep at it. Instead of taking time to complain and voice your negative thoughts outwardly say what you do want!
If you’re trying to make extra money, think about all your side hustles paying off.
If you’re trying to lose weight, think about how your body will look once you lose the weight.
Whatever it is, focus your energy on the thing you are looking for and watch your life change.
Always Be Hustling
One of the most common habits of successful people is the ability to hustle — DJ Khaled is no exception.
You control your work ethic, no one can take that from you.
To be the most successful version of yourself you have to develop a “hustler mentality” as Lewis Howes puts it.
Everyone will have a different version of “hustling” in their life.
If you have kids it could be getting up early to focus on yourself, reading, or a side hustle before they wake up.
If you’re trying to pay off debt it could mean getting a second part-time job, developing a side hustle or flipping things on Craigslist.
Simply put, always be hustling in some way or another to be successful.
Have you ever seen an interview, snap, or clip of DJ Khaled being negative?
I’m 100% sure they don’t exist. This guy is positive 100% of the time, literally 24/7/365. He is literally screaming “we the best” in his sleep…I love it.
I think his attitude and positivity is a major reason he is so successful.
How you choose to view any situation in life will largely determine how you enjoy each day. In today’s world, it has never been easier to be negative. News, popular websites, and even social media are not uplifting.
Because negative sells….it’s unfortunate but it’s true.
Instead of subjecting yourself to negativity from the media spend time focusing on the all the things that are going right.
Here are some easy ways to be positive throughout your day:
Focus on the Positive
Did you know that you are 5x more likely to remember negative experiences instead of positive ones?
Usually, because we make a big deal of it and the memory gets burned into our memory. Think of a time you were embarrassed, had a big “failure” or had a traumatic event in your life.
As a golfer, I’ve always found this true until I started actively fighting it. Instead of thinking of my past bad shots I think how I could have improved them after the right round.
We all have bad experiences in life, learn from them quickly and move on. Don’t dwell on not getting that job promotion, not getting the house you wanted, or whatever it is. Look ahead and think of all the positive things in your life.
I won’t lie, prior to September I had never meditated in my 30 years of being alive. I always thought it was dumb, pointless, time-consuming, and other reasons.
Sound familiar at all?
Well jokes on me now, I make it a priority each morning to meditate as soon as I wake up and have loved incorporating into my morning routine.
As DJ Khaled said in this article with Arianna Huffington, “When I’m really having trouble sleeping, or wake up with thoughts crowding my mind, I’ve found meditation to be a great remedy.”
If you’re not sure where to start I recommend Headspace to start meditating.
DJ Khaled is a super grateful man — he is constantly stating how lucky and blessed his life
Why aren’t more people like this? We have become a culture that takes any opportunity to whine when in reality we live in the greatest time ever. It’s never been easier to talk to people around the world, start a business, and become rich.
Gary Vee said it best, “People whine if they have burnt espresso in their $6 Starbucks?”
Spend five minutes writing in a journal all the things you are thankful or grateful for in your life. It could be your significant other, pet, job, car, weather…anything!
Once you start to focus on being grateful you will feel abundant and attract more of it in your life (thank you Law of Attraction).
There is a lot more good than there is bad in the world, it could always be worse!
Surround Yourself with Winners
DJ Khaled has created an incredibly successful record label, appropriately named “We Da Best.” His songs are almost always featured on a top 100 billboard song thanks to his collaborations.
In business, life, or really anything it’s super important to surround yourself with winners.
As Jim Rohn said, “Your network is your net worth.”
If you hang out with people who are negative, pessimistic, and aren’t striving towards anything, sooner or later it will rub off on your life. Don’t be afraid to cut some people for your life if they aren’t helping your dreams.
Maintaining positive relationships is one of the ten habits that successful people share.
Regardless of what you think of DJ Khaled, you can’t deny his unbelievable level of success in the past decade.
Personally, I love it. He is super inspiring as he is making a ton of money, reaching a large audience, and doing what he loves.
Most celebrities these days are from motivating…usually, it is trips to drug rehab, DUI’s and overall dumb shit.
But DJ Khaled is constantly showing his millions of fans what it takes to be successful.
Surround yourself with other like-minded people, stay positive, and set ambitious goals.
Have you seen DJ Khaled on social media? Does he inspire you or help get you in a good mood?
