Tele Reports, 50 Cent says he always knew he was destined to do great things.
“I expected myself to be successful,” the Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ rapper said before he met fans at Macy’s in California, where he was promoting his new fragrance, Power.
“Not this successful as fast, but I’m working, I’m ambitious and I’ll always create new goals and challenge myself to accomplish them.”
The artist, who is believed to be one of the richest hip-hop performers and has also starred in films, said coming from the streets shouldn’t hold you back.
“There are no excuses, if you allow yourself to let not winning be an option then you won’t win,” he said.
“I spent a long period of time with nothing around to support my ideas but me. Then eventually when people felt the way I felt about [my ideas] I was off and running.”
Fiddy says the secret to success is simple.
He said: “I feel like the strongest characteristic every human possesses is confidence. When we look good, we smell good, we feel good, then we can be ourselves.”
