Facebook CEO,Founder and Owner Mark Zuckerberg who used to say, “The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”
Mark Zuckerberg is a co-founder and CEO of Facebook Company- the biggest social media in the world – he is one of the world’s youngest billionaires.
MZ was born on May 14, 1984, in the White Plains, New York. His age on this write up is 30 years old plus. Zuckerberg developed an interest in computers at an early age; when he was about 12. Mark learned Atari BASIC programming to create a messenger, which he called “ZuckNet”. This is what they used in their house. Connecting their computers to each other and allowed to transfer messages between the house and his father’s dental office.
At age 20 he launched facebook the networking website, that in less than two years, facebook’s membership reached to more than 5.5 million users and now it’s number two in alexa’s ranking.
Now! Facebook has over 1 billion active users.
Some Encouraging Words From The Billionaire
Mark Zuckerberg said about the early years of facebook,“I don’t pretend that I had any idea what I was doing. I always felt like we were so close to dying in the first years…”
The youngest billionaire had to experienced risks before his success and accomplishments. The word RISK which has only four letters is what billions of people do not like to happen in their lives. When facing the risk they are quick to avoid or escape, it is because they don’t like risk.
What we understand from the billionaire is that, the truth about risk is the real success. Mark took the risk of being dropped from sophomore in college to devote his time in programming to create a social media website.
Now I don’t say that you will do what he did unless you are sure what you are doing that will result of what he’ve got. Okay!
Passion Plus Risk Is The Greatest Success
Mark Zuckerberg once said, “Do what you’re passionate about, what you think is awesome… you need to do stuff you’re passionate about. The companies that work are the ones that people really care about and have a vision for the world so do something you like.”
For me, passion without taking risk is a failure. Passion drives success and success is the result of risk. Many successful people started a business or company that they never knew at first that they are able to build. All were making inventions that failed many times but at the end after taking many risks they have a good success.
What makes them to take the risk? They took the risk because of the vision for others.
What is passion? Passion is what you enjoy to do something because you want it done for others. This is not a hobby because a hobby is doing something only for your self. Success is the result of risk that is driven by passion and passion is driven by your concern for others. Then, others is where you get the return of investment.
Satisfy others first before they will satisfy you. This is the principle of a good business. Early this night, I have a talked with my friend that we discussed about a satisfaction with a product. We talked about the good soup that he used a long ago. He said that, it is proven by the samples not by the users. He added that when a user is satisfied by the sample he will become a forever user.
If You Want Success You Must Want First The Risk
This principle really works in the blogging industry. Have you learned about a talkative person? Or maybe you are the one I am talking about. Do you know that a talkative person has a passion for others? Because he wanted others to be informed that is why he talk and talk. If you are one of the talkative people, you have a passion in blogging and you are on your way to success.
Those who took the risks in blogging today, they have the good success. You might not believe me because I am a new blogger, but take a look for others that can prove you. The easy way to do it is just use google and alexa.
Find a blog site on google and copy the URL address and paste on alexa site at the enter a site bar. Alexa will tell you the ranking. Like for example www.facebook.com when you type or copy paste that facebook URL address on the enter a site bar in alexa.com you will find out that facebook is the number two or next to google who have got billions of users.
The ranking of a site in alexa will determined how many visitors or users. My point here is to prove that those successful bloggers did really experience taking the risks. For example in one my previous articles that I have written about how this young man earned nearly $100,000 every month. You can read his story on his site and the risk he experienced.
We may not become like Mark Zuckerberg who have got a revenue of $30 billion plus or like many others who earned million of dollars online. But what I believe is that you read this article because you want to earn from online. And if you take the risk you are on your way to success.
