Three Tips on How To Overcome Adversity and Become ‘The successful Immigrant
Like they say, success lives clues. When you see people who made a successful life for themselves and their families, ask what path they followed to get them where they are. Specially, if the person you admire is an immigrant, there is a lot to learn from their success. What is their secret to succeed in a new country where the language and culture is so different than their background? I have three clues for you. I want to share with you the secrets of successful immigrants. Can you keep secretes? I know you do.
Most immigrants don’t even speak English when they arrive to America. I didn’t. I guess the 1st clue in being successful in America in this case would be, learning how to communicate well in English language. If a person speaks the language of the society, it makes achieving success a lot either.
Take a look around and see those immigrants that you know and admire their success, I bet you they have mastered the English language at least to the point of being understood with out difficulty. I say, if you dream to succeed in America that is one big clue to think about and consider mastering.
Mastering the language is like moving one big roadblock off your way. Moving this roadblock out of your way, will definitely improve your chance to jump to the next level and reach the top where your idols are.
The 2nd clue to why or how immigrants succeed in America is their discipline in the way they manage their money. Have you noticed, most immigrants don’t really eat out that-much? They don’t buy microwave dinners either, because they are more expensive than 10lb bag of potato. They are not big-time visitors of American Malls. Most immigrants don’t use credit cards. They are afraid of being in debt, (I heard some say, I don’t want to be a slave to credit card companies) so they buy most everything with cash. What that means is, they don’t live beyond their means. Because they don’t spend too much, they save some towards a business that they want to own in the near future. Sooner or later, most immigrants that followed this common discipline end up owning their own business and reaching their dreams of being successful.
The 3rd clue, immigrants not only have a discipline in managing their money, but also they work so…..hard to earn their money. Go ahead look around, you will find that most immigrants work more than 12 hours a day; most 7 days a week. No wonder why they are so careful with their spending.
There you go, now you know the secretes to immigrants success. If you found it useful, go ahead and give it a try, you might like to apply it to your own success discipline.
