TED Review: Secret of Success in 8 words, 3 minutes

Richard St. John tell you about Secret of Success in 8 words, 3 minutes. It might be simple and enlightening, or it might be something you already know, but you can’t deny their importance. Perhaps a bit of good examples would help you to understand and believe.
  1. PASSION. I do it for Love, not for money. If you do it for Love, the money comes anyway.
  2. WORK. It's all hard work. Nothing comes easily, but I have a lot of fun (Rupert Murdoch).
  3. GOOD. To be successful put your nose down into something and get damn good at it (Alex Garden). Practice Practice Practice.
  4. FOCUS. Focus on one thing.
  5. PUSH. Push yourself Physically and Mentally, you gotta push push push (David Gallo). Push through shyness and self-doubt. Find someone to push you.
  6. SERVE. Millionaires serve others something of value.
  7. IDEA. Listen, Observe, Be Curious, Ask Questions, Problem Solve, Make Connections. To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe. (Marilyn vos Savant)
  8. PERSIST. Persist through Failure and CRAP (Criticism, Rejection, Assholes and Pressure). It could take 10 years to succeed. Crash and Learn.
