Lately I have been a big fan of Iggy Azalea’s music, particularly one song by her called “Work“. If you are a regular reader of ivansiladji.com you’d know exactly why I like the song so much. You can check out the video below (caution: it does contain some explicit language)…
While listening to this song quite a few times on repeat while I hustle my ass off in my home office I came to appreciate a number of key valuable lessons that we can all learn from this young woman, whom, according to Celebrity Networth is apparently estimated to be worth $6 Million. I’d say that any lesson learned from Iggy caries some weight of credibility as her track records is pretty hard to argue with, especially considering her roots.
Top 3 Success Tips I Learned From Iggy Azalea
1. Respect hard work, appreciate hard work, be-friend hard work. In her third verse she sings…
Pledge allegiance to the struggle
– Iggy Azalea, Work, Verse 3, Line 1
The fact of the matter is that if you plan on achieving any worthwhile dream you have then it will take some work to get it. There is a red hot chance there will be a lot of it and it will be hard at the very best of times. There is no point in crying over hard work and the best way to get through it is to become allies with it, embrace it and know that it will make you appreciate everything you ever get because you will quickly remember and respect the efforts it took to get it.
This dream is all that I need
Cause its all that I ever had
– Iggy Azalea, Work, Verse 3, Lines 12-13
3. Hustle. Hustle. Hustle. Hustle. Hustle. And keep at it until you get what you want. In the hook of the song Work she says…
I’ve been up all night, tryna get that rich
– Iggy Azalea, Work, Hook, Line 1
If you’re sleeping an excessive amount, spending time in front of the TV, procrastinating and complaining you don’t have enough time then you really need to hear those words. Also, I can understanding the case that if you are a parent and juggle a family, a job and your business it can get pretty crazy sometimes but when you really believe in what you are doing you will find a way to make it work.
