Dive into a collection of Andrew Tate's quotes tailored for programmers
How do people become famous?
Despite what the majority of people think, becoming famous is not just luck or fate, there is a blueprint for it.
There are many examples of people who followed this blueprint step-by-step and are now known by everyone.
One clear example above them all is Andrew Tate.
The Attractive Character
In chapter 4 or the first section of the “Dotcom Secret” by Russel Brunson, there is a definition of an attractive character.
Here are some characteristics the author describes for it.
He has to be a leader, talk in parables, and most importantly, be polar.
Do you know anyone who matches this description?
Love or hate Andrew Tate he has shown people that being polar works.
He knows that.
Former President Trump knows that even football players like Cristiano Ronaldo know that too.
Tate the programmer
I am not here to comment on what Tate says.
As we discussed above some people consider him a leader others despite him.
That is what makes it work.
I am not here to convince any of the parties either.
I’ve just noticed that some of the messages he shared could be related to successful programmers, and that is what I want to share with you today.
10 Tate quotes that I agree with and helped me in my career.
“The person who goes to the gym every day regardless of how they feel will always beat the person who goes to the gym when they feel like going to the gym.”
I chose this as the first quote because it is very efficient in describing 2 points in one sentence.
The first is consistency.
It does not matter if you are frustrated because your code does not work, or stressed because you’re having issues deploying your application.
Especially when you are learning a new language or tool, you must put your head down and practice as much as possible.
Secondly, consider that programming is a sedentary job.
Yes, it's 2023 and you can buy a standing desk so you can pretend you are burning calories but let's be real.
You need to get into some sport or go lift some weight to be considered active in life.
This will reduce your level of stress and help your body and mindsed so much that it is going to increase the length of your career for years.
“Emotional control isn’t a lack of emotion, it’s a necessary function of maturity.”
There will be times when a ticket that is only supposed to take 2 hours to solve takes 2 weeks to be done.
While this happens you are going to start getting questions from leads, product managers, and colleagues.
Be stoic, keep your emotion in the right place.
“A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow. You’ve gotta do something and you’ve gotta do something fast. You just sitting around talking about it and hoping for things to get better isn’t going to do anything.”
Analysis paralysis is a phrase used to describe the feeling of being unable to decide due to overthinking a problem.
With the amount of information on the internet these days it is very easy to feel stuck.
I never had so many friends asking me for job advice and considering a career change in web development as in the last 3 or 4 years.
Only 1 of them has actually managed to find a job as a developer.
She was the only one that quickly decided “I want to learn ReactJs and I don’t want to worry about what people say about Python, PHP, Go, etc”.
Make a “good enough” plan and move forward,
be agile, not stuck.
“When’s the last time you prevented the negative instead of dealing with it?”
In my opinion, this is about asking yourself the question: what can go wrong?
Are you looking for a job as a programmer?
Maybe you won’t get any answers for your applications or don’t succeed in any interviews.
This can all happens,
The solution is to analyze what happened and work on it, so next time it won’t happen again.
I have done a ton of interviews before finding my first job as a junior developer.
Every time there was a new question that I didn’t know the answer to I was taking note of it and studied the solution.
After a while, I was ready to answer that same question before they finished asking it.
Be proactive, not reactive.
“Discipline is the key to success. Absolutely is. If you cannot force yourself to do something that you do not want to do, how are you ever gonna put yourself through the suffering required for greatness?”
Discipline is the practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behavior,
I understand that sounds bad in this day and age yet but, in my opinion, people are missing the point here.
You can set a goal and discipline yourself to achieve that.
GOAL: I want to learn PHP by the end of the year;
PLAN: I must practice PHP every day;
DISCIPLINE: I will create an application and commit to working on it for at least 20 minutes every day till the end of the year;
“90% of success is going through stress, pain, torment, and bulls**t.”
As a first-generation immigrant that moved to another country looking for work and better opportunities, I understand that very well.
Probably you don’t need to learn a new language from scratch or don’t need to work long hours to pay rent while studying and doing interviews but I am sure you also have something that stresses you.
I just want to assure you that all of this will make you stronger.
Once the first step in the right direction is done life will get way easier.
Hang in there!
“Find a person who is as successful as you’d like to be. Ask them what to do. Then do it and work hard.”
In my career, I was lucky enough to find several successful mentors.
Mentors are people that had the skill I wanted to obtain.
They can be your seniors or leads developer at your workplace.
Or they can be the YouTuber or blogger you are learning coding tips from.
Find a few people that you like and ask them as many questions as you want.
Feel free to comment your question down below so the community and I can answer that for you.
“You are organized, fast, and systematized. You stop doing things that you know are a waste of time. You stop acting based on emotional whims. Imagine that version of yourself. Imagine what that person accomplishes in a year.”
In February 2001 a group of 17 software developers meep up for 2 days and created the Agile manifesto.
This manifest is a set of 12 rules that gives guidelines on how to make a project successful.
Agile has become very popular and developers shouldn’t learn about it only when working on code but in their personal life too.
Be organized, prevent issues, don’t waste time, be ready to fix problems, and have the goal to improve by 1% every day.
After 1 year you will be surprised how better you have become
“You are exactly where you deserve to be. Change who you are and you will change how you live.”
There has been a time when I was wondering why I could not get this or that job.
What I was missing or why this other person got the opportunity I wanted.
Years later, now that I have been an interviewer quite a few times I can see what happens from the other side of the table.
People are sloppy, come unprepared and show a lack of willingness to learn new skills.
I was interviewing a 50 years old man a few months back that told me he wanted to learn all the tech stack at my workplace but wanted to do so only after he got the job.
Whereas a younger guy after him came already knowing what technologies and tools we are using and told us he did spend the previous weekends studying exactly that.
Guess which candidate got the job?
“Close your eyes. Focus on making yourself feel excited and powerful. Imagine yourself destroying goals with ease.”
The last quote is a positive one.
Andrew Tate, Tony Robbins, Conor McGregor, and many other successful people all preach the power of visualization.
You need to dream where you want to get, then open your eyes and plan how to get there.
Get a piece of paper and write down step by step how you plan to achieve your goals.
Make yourself excited about your goal!
Do you want to be a software engineer in London like I wanted many years ago?
Imagine yourself at your desk in an office on the 60th floor of a skyscraper in Canary Wharf.
Are you dreaming of spending as much time with your family as possible? Believe you can get a job as a developer for some start-up and work remotely.
What is your goal? work to achieve it!
Before I leave you I want I write a little disclaimer.
This was by no means a blog post in favor of Andrew Tate the influencer.
I understand everyone has their own opinion about him and I am not here to discuss him as a person.
People will like him and others will hate him.
I believe though that he portrays himself as a hard worker, and I know for a fact that if you want to achieve your goal you need to work hard.
That is why in this special blog post, I decided to share 10 of the quotes that I reckon will make him, AND YOU, a better programmer.
If you want to learn more about coding, when I don’t write about Andrew Tate, I share my knowledge in web development.
