Before starting any business or entrepreneurial venture, readers are advised to seek the services of competent professionals; such as an accountant, an attorney, an insurance broker and a bank manager. Being in business for oneself involves putting some money at risk in anticipation of making a profit. That means there is also the risk of loss. In how-to and practical advice books, like anything else in life, there is no guarantee of success or that a specific amount of money can be made. Success in business involves many things including individual circumstances, common sense, talent or aptitude, the chosen field, the amount of time one can devote to marketing, the need for the product or service and the extent of the competition. Readers are therefore cautioned to reply on their own judgment and act accordingly.

Advice from the Rich and Famous Compiled by John Jude O’Callaghan ________________________________________________________ Mary Kay: “Being a full-time wife, mother and career woman is no easy task. Years ago I heard somebody say that if you get up two-and-a-half hours early three days a week, you add an extra day to your week. Wow! Imagine what you could get done in a nine-day week! “At that time I had three young children and I wasn’t able to accomplish what I needed to do in a seven-day week. So I decided to get up early sixtimes-a-week and have a nine-day week “I discovered that working at five in the morning gave me the added bonus of not being bothered by telephone calls and other interruptions. This early morning time has become the most productive part of my day, and I’ve been getting up at five ever since.” ____________________________________________________________ Leo Buscaglia, Ph.D: “Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.” Personal advice given to JJOC) ___________________________________________________________ Henry Ford: “Thinking is the hardest work there is. That’s why so few people do it.” ____________________________________________________________ “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012. John Jude O’Callaghan.

___________________________________________________________ Brian Tracy: “The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire, not things we fear.” ____________________________________________________________ Baroness Margaret Thatcher: “My best advice is to believe that your position in life will depend to a large extent on the amount of effort you are prepared to put into it. Everybody can’t get to the top. But if you have the will, you can find a way to get the most from the talents you are blessed with. “Take life one step at a time and you will usually find there is another one ahead if you wish to take it. But don’t stop too soon. “Here are a couple of lines from a poem that influenced me greatly when I was young: ‘It’s easy to be a starter, but are you a sticker too? It’s easy to begin a job; it’s harder to see it through.’” (Personal advice given to JJOC) ____________________________________________________________ J. Paul Getty: “Almost without exception, there is only one way to make a great deal of money in the business world -- and that is in one’s own business. The man who goes into business should a field which he knows and understands. Obviously, he can’t know everything there is to know at the beginning, but he should not start until he has acquired a good, solid working knowledge of the business. Opportunities are a bit like buses. If you wait long enough another bus is sure to come. Except, next time, the price of a ticket is going to cost you a heck of a lot more.” ____________________________________________________________ “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012.

___________________________________________________________ Ted Turner: “To be successful in business, one needs to work hard toward goals that are so high you’ll probably never reach them. To be successful in life, one must care more for others than yourself. True happiness and success come not from money but from contributing to society, helping the less fortunate and making the world a safer place.” (Personal advice given to JJOC) ____________________________________________________________ J. Paul Getty: “Opportunities are a bit like buses. If you wait long enough another bus is sure to come. Except, next time, the price of a ticket is going to cost you a heck of a lot more.” ____________________________________________________________ Christopher Morley : “There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.” ___________________________________________________________ Dale Carnegie: “The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore. Believe you will succeed and you will then do what is necessary to bring about success.”

Earl Nightingale: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal.” ____________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________ Samuel Smiles: “We learn wisdom from failure much more than success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.”

Paul J. Meyer. President Success Motivation Institute. Waco. TX. “Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.” ___________________________________________________________ Steve Jobs:. “No one wants to die. Even those who want to go to heaven don’t want to die. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma -- which is living with other people’s thinking. Think different. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown your own inner voice.” ____________________________________________________________ Tony Robbins: “If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results.” “The surest way to wealth is to start and build a successful business of your own. No one ever got rich working for someone else. Your products or service only need to be 10 percent better than your competitors to start you on the road to wealth.” ___________________________________________________________ “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012.

____________________________________________________________ Earl Nightingale: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal. A man or woman, who is not actively in pursuit of a goal, can be likened to a captain of a ship that sails without a compass, a chart, a definite destination in mind, nor an estimated time of arrival. “Not having a definite destination in mind and an estimated time of arrival means they could become perpetual travelers, doomed to sail around in circles, and never arrive. “Weak-minded captains lay themselves open to being boarded and taken over by more purposeful captains who force them to do what they want, and go wherever they want to go. “Such ships are also in mortal danger drifting with the tide or, floundering on the reefs that lie beneath the waves, as if in wait for the unwary” ___________________________________________________________ Zig Ziglar: You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.” ____________________________________________________________ Earl Nightingale: “Our world can be likened to a mirror that reflects back to us what we choose to hold up to it.” ____________________________________________________________ Thomas Jefferson: “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.” “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012.

____________________________________________________________ Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick: “Picture yourself vividly as winning and that alone will contribute to success. Great living starts with a picture, held in your imagination, of what you would like to do or be.” ___________________________________________________________ Harvey Mackay: “You have to grab hold of life. You can’t sit there and let it pass you by. You have to make things happen, not just wait for things to happen. It’s never too late to become what you could have been. Start now where you are and with whatever you’ve got ___________________________________________________________ Dale Carnegie “The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore. Believe you will succeed and you will then do what is necessary to bring about success.” ____________________________________________________________ Calvin Coolidge: “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not: Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Determination and Persistence alone are Omnipotent.” ___________________________________________________________

Donald Trump: “A failure is not a defeat. Defeat is a state of mind. You are not defeated only when you accept defeat, and assume the hopeless mind-set of a defeated person. “Learn from your mistakes and view your setbacks as the cost of getting an education. View every failure as a step on the way to ultimate success. “Your belief generates the power, the skill and the energy to succeed at achieving you goals. Doubt saps your will to succeed and signals to everyone involved that you are going to fail. “Remember, persistence plus learning from mistakes equals success.” __________________________________________________________ “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012.

Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.” ____________________________________________________________ Seneca: “What you think of yourself is much more important that what others think of you. “

Samuel Smiles: “We learn wisdom from failure much than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and he never made a mistake never made a discovery.”

Benjamin Franklin: “Be studious in your profession, and you will be learned. Be industrious and frugal, and you will be rich. Be sober and temperate, and you will be healthy. Be in general virtuous, and you will be happy. At least you will, by such conduct, stand the best chance for such consequences.” ____________________________________________________________ Herbert Bayard: “I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: “Try to please everybody.” _________________________________________________________

Christian D. Larson : “Promise Yourself…  That nothing can disturb your peace of mind.  To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.  To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.  To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.  To think only of the best and to expect only the best.  To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.  To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements of the future.  To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.  To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.  To be too large to worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fears, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.  To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.  To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you. “ ___________________________________________________________ Professor William James: “The greatest discovery of my generation is that people can change their lives simply by changing their attitudes. The way to be brave is to act as if you are brave. The way to be happy is to act as if you are happy. “ ____________________________________________________________

___________________________________________________________ Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick: “Picture yourself vividly as winning and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. Great living starts with a picture, held in your imagination, of what you would like to do or be.” ___________________________________________________________ Claude M. Bristol: “To become the person you would like to be, you create a mental picture of your newly conceived self, and if you continue to hold it, the day will come when you are in reality that person.” ____________________________________________________________ Cynthia Kersey: “There will always be well-meaning people who want to ‘protect’ you from your ‘unrealistic fantasies.’ The only opinion about your dream that really counts is yours. The negative comments of others merely reflect their limitations -- not yours. Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you!” ____________________________________________________________ Eleanor Roosevelt: “Nothing that has happened in the past can possibly hurt or harm you today, without your full permission.” ____________________________________________________________ Vincent Van Gough: “If you should hear a small voice in your head telling you, you can’t paint, paint anyway and the voice will be permanently silenced. ____________________________________________________________ “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012.

____________________________________________________________ Horace Mann: “Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two Golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward Is offered, for they are gone forever.” ____________________________________________________________ Omar Khayyam: “The Moving Finger writes: and having writ, moves on. Nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line. Nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.” ______________________________________________________ John Delevara: “Everything is possible if you can see it and believe it. Your mind is an awesome piece of equipment, so don’t waste it by limiting yourself.” ___________________________________________________________ Sir Edmund of Canterbury: “Work as though you would live forever, but live as though you would die today.” ____________________________________________________________ Dr. Harold Fink: “You can change the negative image you may have of yourself by writing out a description of the person you would like to be. In writing it, do not write in wishy-washy terms like ‘I hope to be’, but in terms of ‘I am.’ In your mind’s eye, see yourself, not as you are now, but as you confidently expect to be! From now on, act the part of the self-confident and successful person you have decided to become. “ ____________________________________________________________ “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012.

__________________________________________________________ Sir Winston Churchill : “Never, never give in. One ought never to turn ones back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. When you are going through hell, keep going. ” __________________________________________________________ Maya Angelou: People may forget what you said, people may forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ____________________________________________________________ Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Belief consists of accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.” ____________________________________________________________

Dale Carnegie: “Believe that you will succeed and you will then do what is necessary to bring about success.” ____________________________________________________________ E. Hale: “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything; but I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” ____________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________ Ralph Waldo Emerson: “There is always room for a man of force and he makes room for many. Each man has an aptitude born with him to do some feat impossible to any other. The law of nature is, do the thing, and you shall have the power; but they who don’t do the thing have not the power. “

Ella Wheeler Wilcox: “Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone. For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, and has trouble enough of its own.”

Sophia Lauren: “Getting ahead in any profession requires avid faith in oneself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows. There is no code of conduct to help beginners. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive and determination, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.”

Christopher Morely: “There is only one success -- to be able to spend your life in your own way.” ____________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________ Earl Nightingale: “Our world can be likened to a mirror that reflects back to us what we choose to hold up to it.” __________________________________________________________ King Solomon: “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding, for the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies, and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are of peace.”

Ella Wheeler Wilcox: “Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone. For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, but has trouble enough of its own. “ ____________________________________________________________

William Shakespeare: “There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their lives is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.” ____________________________________________________________ “Advice From the Rich and Famous. “ © Copyright 2012.

Rudyard Kipling: “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, or, being lied about, don't deal in lies, or being hated don't give way to hating, and yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise; If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim. If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two impostors just the same: If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, and stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools; If you can make one heap of all your winnings and risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, and lose, and start again at your beginnings, and never breathe a word about your loss: If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew to serve your turn long after they are gone, and so hold on when there is nothing in you except the will which says to them: "Hold on!" If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch, if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; if you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds' worth of distance run, yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, and - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son! ____________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________ Veronica A. Shortfall: “After a while, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning. And company doesn’t mean security “And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open; with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child “And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way in falling down in midflight. “After a while you learn that sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers, “And you learn that you really can endure. That you really are strong. and you really do have worth. And you learn and learn…” ____________________________________________________________ Ralph Waldo Emerson: “What is success? To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; that is to have succeeded.” ____________________________________________________________ Aristotle: “What we have to learn to do we learn by doing.”

Max Ehrman: “Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs. for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. “Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.” ___________________________________________________________
