21 Success Secrets of the Most Influential Billionaires | 2

The key to making a change in your life is YOU. And taking ACTION! The best intentions in the world will amount to nothing if you do not take action. And you must invest in yourself. You must continue to keep learning to expand your mind, to constantly seek out more knowledge and enlightenment.

If an egg is broken by an outside force, a life ends. If an egg opens from within, a life begins. Success Secrets Begin From Within! ~ Jay McLean

Look for the best and you’ll get the best. Branson is a big proponent of providing encouragement to people in the form of lavish praise for motivation. He quotes, “It’s much more fun looking for the best in people... People don’t need to be told where they’ve slipped up. They’ll sort it out themselves.”

Incorporate fun in everything you do. Fun is a major part of the experience for Virgin employees, and this translates into the customer satisfaction. One gets the impression that the search for a good time is what really motivates Branson, and has motivated him his whole life.

Learn the importance of dedication and consistency in action. When Branson dedicates himself to a project, he sees it through without loss of focus. He gets through his to-do list every day.

Do what you love and the rest will come. Oprah’s beliefs and passion have guided the building of her empire. She has made a career of expressing what she thinks and of coaxing others’ thoughts out of them.

No matter what your goal is, simply put in your best effort, day in and day out. Oprah shares her philosophy, “Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” Being successful and wealthy is the end result of focusing on one clear goal and working towards it every single day.

Be in control of your own success and take responsibility for your every action. As Oprah’s famous saying goes, “We are each responsible for our own life – no other person is or even can be.” It is significant that we never hear a selfmade person make excuses or put blame on others for their failures.

Don’t let people tell you it can’t be done. Even people who you may respect or who you believe know what they’re talking about don’t have the right to say it. Pierre says, “Oftentimes, these people who try to stop you don’t have the courage to try.”

Pursue your passion. You have to really believe in what you’re doing and be passionate enough so that you will put in the hours and hard work that it takes to actually succeed. Pierre revealed, “When I started eBay, it was a hobby, an experiment to see if people could use the Internet to be empowered through access to an efficient market.” Indeed, eBay has pioneered the field of online shopping.

You’re never going to know which is easy or hard to accomplish until you actually go and do it, or even try and learn from it. You may fail at some point but that’s just a learning path that you need to take on to your next experience.

Hard work is far more important than intelligence, in the long run. Gates strongly believes that success is a result of “dedication and persistence, rather than brilliance”. He works tirelessly, makes every second count. That’s why it’s not hard to imagine why he became the world’s youngest billionaire.

The ability to accept, rather than to avoid criticism, is crucial to continuing development. Gates can accept tough criticisms as it pushes him to make things better in terms of the quality and precision of his products, thus creating a better customer satisfaction and making Microsoft what it is.

Have a vision. 30 years ago, Gates and his co-founder Paul Allen, had a vision of the future when “there would be a computer on every desk and in every home”. They could see the possibility clearly, despite the fact that even people in the industry at that time could not. Indeed today, it is hard to imagine what life would be like without computers.

It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behaviour is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction. Buffett points out that if you want to be successful, rich or virtuous, seek out like-minded people, even people who have made more progress than you have.

Adopt simplicity. Buffett’s basic approach, being a “legendary investor”, is to merely grasp a few simple facts and figures, and makes his investment decisions on the same principles over and over again. Those who build enormous wealth are able to focus on letting what’s fundamental to drive everything they do, no matter how complex the action become.

Keep an eye on your behaviour. As Buffett’s famed saying goes, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.”

Create what you want to see in the world. You cannot really do good work if your mere intention is to please other people. Only you know the ins and outs of what you want to create, as you cannot read anyone else’s mind.

Always keep trying until you find something that pays off. One of Rowling’s famous quotations says, “Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.”

You must set out to learn and practice, make mistakes and to keep going until you’ve become skilful. Many people think that a talent like Rowling’s is an inborn gift, but in reality, she had been practicing her craft for over two decades before she produced Harry Potter.

Always deliver more than expected. Don’t just do things, but do them well and better than anyone else, as well as surpass your own mark. With that kind of mindset, it would be impossible not to succeed, and one can see why Google is the brand that it is.

Be adaptive to change. According to Page, “If your business is static, you’re likely to have issues.” The pace of living and doing business now is changing faster than ever before. If you can see the next big thing on the horizon and adapt to it, you can ride the wave to prosperity.

Maintain integrity and moral thinking. Page says, “Our users trust Google’s objectivity and no short-term gain could ever justify breaching that trust.” This determination to do things well and with principle has led to their gaining the trust of vast number of people.
