Richard St. John has some excellent insights into why people succeed.  And, they can be absorbed in less than 3-minutes.

Is it because they’re smart? Or are they just lucky? Neither. People who succeed do the big 8 things that lead to success:

  1. Passion – If you do it for love, the money comes anyway.
  2. Work – It’s all hard work, but it is fun if you are passionate about it.
  3. Good – Get good at what you do. Practice, practice, practice.
  4. Focus – Focus on one thing. Don’t be scattered.
  5. Push – Mentally and physically. Through being shy and self-doubt.
  6. Serve – Serve others something of value.
  7. Ideas – There is no magic to coming up with ideas. How do you come up with ideas?
  • Listen
  • Observe
  • Be curious
  • Ask questions
  • Focus on problem solving
  • Make connections

8. Persist – Through failure and “CRAP” (Criticism, Rejection, Assholes and Pressure) 😊

Success is about many things, but regardless of your goals (money, influencing others, being happy, educational achievement…), you cannot achieve success without a road map.  My recommendation is that you take the image below (or create your own one), print it out, and tape it to your wall.  I have, and it keep reminding me of the things I need to do every day to succeed. ~ Paul Siegel
