Scott Disick’s literally a Lord; he did buy himself a knighting ceremony, has his close family refer to him as “The Lord” or “L.D.,” and his Instagram username is “letthelordbewithyou”. With a net worth of $15 million and counting, the TV personality and socialite is the splitting image of success—something a lot of us can only aspire to.
A quick glance at his Instagram profile reveals what most of us can only dream of; snazzy cars, private jets, luxury clothes, sprawling mansions, and, of course, a postcard-pretty family life, with three beautiful children. But it wasn’t that easy to get there. Read on to find out what he does to be and remain, successful.
10 Be Unconventional And Try Different Things
Scott Disick always tried out different things and never really followed the status quo. While most of us were falling in love in our teens, Disick captured people’s hearts by being a heartthrob literally; he modeled for a series of young adult novels called Heartland by Lauren Brooke, which were aimed at girls between the ages 12 and 17.
Yes, while most of us read romance novels on the sly, he was busy gracing their covers. In short, no matter where you are, remain industrious and make use of whatever opportunities you get.
9 Pay Attention To That Inner Entrepreneur
If you want to be successful, you must learn to be your own boss. If you have the chance and the resources, try to start your own business or a start-up. It may not always pay off, but it’s worth it. That’s what Disick did.
In 2012, he started a Japanese restaurant in New York City, even though it closed after 191 days. He’s been a spokesperson for Amidren, which is a drug for male menopause, as well as a tanning product, again aimed at males. Plus, of course, he’s had his own tv show not surprisingly called “Lord Disick: Lifestyle of a Lord”.
8 Make The Right Connections
Scott Disick, as most of us are aware, rose to fame by dating Kourtney Kardashian. They had an on-off relationship for a while, and he was a regular appearance on the show Keeping Up With The Kardashians and was the father of three adorable kids.
Hadn’t it been for the Kardashian connection, we don’t know if he’d still be as famous. Which goes on to show, just how important the right connections and contacts can be. So, if you want to be successful, step up your networking and socializing game.
7 Seriously, Be The Best Host That You Can Be
Scott Disick’s been featured on a number of television shows. And you know why? It's because he can be a charming and engaging host. In fact, Disick is so good at his job that he does a variety of paid hosting gigs at fancy night clubs and pool parties. He probably makes $100,000 just for showing up.
If you’re an extrovert and you’re good at performing or public speaking, make the best use of your talents. Get yourself out there and get that exposure. Be the life of the party at an event- and people will be so charmed, you’ll start getting the invitations.
6 Celebrate Your Success
Your success is meaningless unless you can properly celebrate and cherish it. All of us have our own methods of celebrating our achievements and the things we’re proud of. For Disick, it’s his Instagram, on which he likes to brag about his expensive watches, sunglasses and private jets.
Try keeping a diary or document your little successes on social media. Not only will you be cheered on, but you’ll also inspire a host of other people, and one day, as you scroll down your past posts, you’ll be amazed at just how far you’ve come.
5 You Don't Have To Follow Society's Expectations
Society expects us to go to school, get a job, start a family, buy a house—but what if you could do things differently? What if you could do things your way? What if you could skip some of the steps and fast forward to the ones that matter to you?
Well, in the case, just take a leaf out of Scott Disick’s book. Like so many other millionaires and billionaires, Scott Disick was a school drop-out. He’d been going to a posh private school in East Hampton and he dropped out to follow his dreams.
4 Always Make Time For Yourself
Success requires hard work and perseverance, yes, but don’t let that kill you. No matter what you do, always make time for yourself and for the people and things that matter to you.
For instance, Scott Disick always enjoyed playing hockey and snowboarding. Now, he makes sure that he still has time to enjoy it. From time to time, he decides to take a trip to the mountains and relax by snowboarding. So don’t give up on your hobbies in your quest for success. Sometimes, that’s all that might help to keep you sane.
3 Focus On Your Personality
Have you noticed how certain successful people can just fill a room by the sheer force of their personality? Cultivating a charismatic personality is very important to success, particularly in the showbiz and entertainment industry. Scott Disick has got great looks and a great personality, so people naturally flock to him.
If you want to be popular and loved, you need to earn it from the people. So take a look at your personality and figure out ways to make yourself more charming and endearing to people. It will work wonders.
2 Don't Let Your Mistakes Define You
We all make mistakes. We all goof up. We’ve all made decisions that we’ve later regretted. It’s all part and parcel of growing up and being human, but we shouldn’t let our mistakes define us or stop us from succeeding. Instead, we should learn from them and move on.
Scott Disick, for instance, has a juvenile criminal record. Even before he turned 18, he’s been arrested twice once for exceeding the speed limit and once for driving under influence. However, he didn’t let these incidents tarnish his reputation or jeopardize his career.
1 Go For What You Want
No one’s going to serve you success on a platter; if you want something, you have to go out there and get it. Scott Disick was born to a wealthy family, but his parents lost their fortune. But he didn’t let that faze him.
After becoming a household name on the Kardashians show, he started his own tv show, dabbled in modeling and real estate and even started a Japanese restaurant and hosted events in nightclubs. Pretty eclectic right? He also uses Instagram to document his lavish lifestyle as well as his journey.
So take the inspiration and chase your dreams till you catch them. And, while you’re at it, make sure you have some fun.
