Rules for Success

Rules for Success

We all want to be successful, don’t we?

What’s success to you anyway? ……….a story for another day.

I thought I share this as I find it useful. You will be amazed how successful people have so much in common. As you read through, have this in mind; words by Steve Jobs: “Your life is limited, don’t waste it living in other people’s opinions. Follow your intuition, they probably already know what you want to become. Everything else is secondary. You have to trust your guts and go for it. People will think you are crazy or even stupid but you have to be crazy enough to think you can change the world to actually do it.”
