What makes us successful?

Here is a short video about the things that make us successful in life. The presenter Richard St. John made observations based on over 500 interviews with successful people.

8 things that make us successful

1. Passion

Do it for love not for the money. The money will always follow when you truly enjoy what you are doing.

2. Work

It’s all hard work. Nothing comes easily. But remember to have fun.

3. Good

Put yourself into something and get damn good at it.

Practice makes perfect.

4. Focus

Success is all about focusing yourself on one thing

5. Push

Push yourself. Physically, mentally. You have to push, push, push. When you are done pushing – push some more!

6. Serve

Serve others something of value – that’s how people really get rich.

7. Ideas

Have ideas and make them come true.

Listen, Observe, Be Curious, Ask Questions, Solve Problems, Make Connections – Ideas will follow.

8. Persist

Persistence is the number one reason that successful people are successful.
