He started at the bottom, and now Drake is here, sharing his secrets of success.

#1: Set High Goals

“You know, $25 million was a crazy initial goal I set for myself, but you’re capable of making it, and I want to keep touring and making music but I also see there are other ways. I want to invent something, I want to start a company, I want to do something that maybe has nothing to do with music. I’m just addicted to success. I’m obsessed with perfection. I want to work. I don’t want to take this for granted.”

#2: Make Sacrifices

“I’m just addicted to it. I’ve sacrificed so much for it already, and dedicated so much of my time that I have to push it as far as I possibly can, because I’ve given up a lot of years, as far as nurturing personal relationships go and trying to build things like a family or a relationship, I don’t do any of that, I just kind of, work.”

#3: Find Balance

“I’m okay with that now, at this point in my life I’m okay with that. I think it’s a great age to be doing that. I think maybe in 10 years if I’m still in that mindset I might have to come sit back down with you and have a different conversation.”
