How are you successful? What did you do to become successful? You have an opportunity here. You see, each one of you has been successful in some way. Maybe you have enjoyed amazing success. Maybe you turned a failing company into a profitable powerhouse? Maybe you retired at 45 years old? Maybe you would say you have only had limited success. Either way I hope you can take a few minutes to share one or two stories of your own success with us here.
Many successful people will tell you that the only way to succeed, is through failure. You’ve probably heard this famous quote, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” -Thomas A. Edison. We all learn from failure. Some people like to hear more about people’s failures in business, than their success stories. Why? So they don’t make the same mistakes. In fact, if you have a story of failures (a.k.a. what not to do in business), I know our readers would like to hear about them. The advice you share through your past failures may just help someone who is trying to build a successful businesses. True we could all go to another webinar, read another self-help book or watch a video. But we would rather hear from you. Also, if your success came from any others sources you respect, let us know.
As you know I do like to include videos in my posts. I was looking for one or two that would meld well with the theme “Success”. Steve Jobs explains the rules for success. . .
On a more lighthearted look at how to be successful I also found the Michael J. Fox full length movie from the 80’s, “The Secret of My Success”. Not sure that it is exactly the roadmap we should follow but you might find it entertaining.
So what is YOUR secret to success?
