There are countless routes to success in life, and while many routes are already paved for us, many people try to become self-made. While building a vehicle of success on your own can be much more difficult and demanding, it can also be much more rewarding once you reach your destination. Despite the difficulty of the journey, Chike Ozigbo cracked the code, and has become wholly successful by altering his mindset.
Growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, Chike didn’t start off with much. His father passed away in 1999, leaving Chike’s mother to take care of him and his three other siblings. Despite the difficult scenario, Chike’ mother managed to save enough money to move her family to the United States, giving Chike and his siblings the opportunity to potentially have a better future. Chike, after seeing the struggles his mother went through to provide for him, became determined to become rich, and promised his mother that one day she wouldn’t have to work so hard.
Chike would go on to become a nurse, and although he was earning a consistent flow of income, he still sought after more. In 2017, Chike discovered a YouTube video discussing paradigms, the power of the human mind, and how patterns and routines can control behavior. Intrigued by the topics, Chike found himself studying the works of Bob Proctor and Dr. Napoleon Hill, and used what he learned to shape his own mindset and behaviors into his ideal vision of himself. Around the same time, Chike would make his first step into the stock industry.
At the time, Chike had a friend who traded stocks, and Chike asked if his friend could show him the ropes. After learning the basics, Chike went on to start trading on his own, and opened his first trading account in the fall of 2017 with $10,000 he had been saving. Unfortunately, by the first quarter of 2018, Chike had lost it all. Yet, despite the massive loss, Chike kept his head on straight, and used what he had learned to come back stronger. He opened his second account in 2018 with $5,000, and grew it to over $20,000 by the end of the year. At the beginning of 2019, he borrowed an additional $20,000, and with a total of $40,000 going in, Chike came out with over $500,000 by the end of the year.
From a big loss, to an immense gain, Chike remained focused on his craft and came out big on the other side. His endeavors in self-improvement and sharpening his paradigm helped Chike stay focused on the image of success he had painted in his mind. Now, with the capital he has earned, Chike plans to continue trading, with hopes of growing his success to new levels. It looks like Chike’s mother won’t have to keep working so hard after all.
