This is really a 2 hour presentation which i have cut down to 5 minutes. it all started when I was in school 7 years ago and were desperate to know what success is and how can i be a successful and accomplished person. I wanted to make something of my life. So i asked myself a simple little question “what leads to success?” and I had no answer to that question. So I thought to dig deep and do some research to see what characteristics these successful people have and what they thought of success. I interviewed some, red autobiographies, had some research on internet and then after 7 years 500 interviews later, im gonna tell you what really leads to success. And the first thing is:

1- Passion: Passion is what gives us our fire; passion is what makes life worth living.

I do what i’m doing for love not for money,

And the interesting thing is if you do it for love, money comes in anyway.

2- Work:

This simply means if you like what you do, success will come in naturally.

3- Good:

There is no magic its practice, practice and practice.

4- Focus:

5- Push:

You gotta push yourself through Shyness and self doubts. Goldie Hawn says “I always had self doubts. I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t smart enough. I didn’t think i would make it.” Now its not always easy to push yourself thats why they invented mothers.

6- Serve:

Now everybody out there wants to be millionaire and the first thing that I have learned is i cant serve myself you gotta serve others something of value because thats the way people really get rich.

7- Idea:

i say it was a pretty good idea. And there is no magic to creativity and coming up with ideas, its just doing some really simple things.

8- Persist:

You gotta persist through failure; you gotta persist through crap, which offcourse means criticism, rejection, assholes and pressure.

So at the end, the answer to this question is simple, do the 8 thing and trust me these are the big 8...
