Why I’m embracing The 50th Law

Recently I’ve been reading “The 50th Law” by Robert Greene and 50 Cent. Amazon non-affiliate link. While I do love Robert Greene’s books, I’m not historically a 50 Cent fan. Not so much that I don’t like 50 Cent but I just haven’t given him much thought as I don’t listen to his music and don’t really follow pop culture. So when I heard about this book, it’s authors,  and the general idea of breaking down the concept of fearlessness I was intrigued.

So far it’s been really good. One of the best parts of the book is each chapter starts off with 50 Cent paraphrasing the chapter. They are all quite amazing. I wanted to provide one of my favorite taken from Robert Greene’s Blog, here.

Chapter 2
Make Everything Your Own – Self-Reliance

When you work for others, you are at their mercy. They own your work; they own you. Your creative spirit is squashed. What keeps you in such positions is a fear of having to sink or swim on your own. Instead you should have a greater fear of what will happen to you if you remain dependent on others for power. Your goal in every maneuver in life must be ownership, working the corner for yourself. When it is yours, it is yours to lose – you are more motivated, more creative, more alive. The ultimate power in life is to be completely self-reliant, completely yourself.
