31 Dec 2018 Posted in ⟨For Learners⟩

The road to success in life isn’t easy. Whether you’re in your 20s, 30s or 40s, here are some important life lessons tried and tested by some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs.

There is no one to follow, there is nothing to copy.

Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group

Average people copy what others have done. Successful people take a step further to go somewhere no one has gone before. Dare to be different while staying authentic to blaze your own path.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company

Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from pursuing your dreams. Failure is an integral part of the process and your greatest teacher, so accept it and allow it to guide you towards success.

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

Jim Rohn, American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker

Whether we like it or not, we are influenced by those who are closest to us. Get to know more about the people around you and build strong relationships with people who support and inspire you to do the extra mile.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.

Steve Jobs, Co-founder of Apple Inc

When you’re passionate about something, you’ll go the extra mile to make it work. If you’re feeling mundane about your current status, perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate what you really want to do in life. If you don’t know what you are passionate about, you must keep on searching until you find it.

You cannot unify everyone’s thoughts, but you can unify everyone through a common goal.

Jack Ma, Founder of Alibaba Group

The only way to get people to help make your ideas a reality is to have a vision. In the case of Jack Ma, it was because of his vision that he was able to start and build Alibaba into the multibillion-dollar e-commerce giant that it is today.

When you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back.

Michelle Obama, lawyer, writer & First Lady of the United States

When you’re riding the wave of success, remember the people who have played a part, in one way or another, in making it possible. Humility and gratitude are values that will continue to open doors, and take you further. One of the cornerstones of success is self-improvement.
