Everyone must have heard about Richard Branson, The guy who made it to the list of most successful entrepreneurs, Owner of Virgin Group. If you haven’t then you are doing it wrong. The billionaire hails from England and once suffered from dyslexia and faced academic consequences but he never gave up on life and turned out to be one of the most successful leaders.
Take risks; don’t be afraid to fall down, but dearth to rise again after falling. Happiness is contagious like positive energy, leads one to move further, innovate, create and excel in any field of activity -be it in business, community or Government. Well having a lot of money is good; it can buy you things, nice things but happiness.
Mr. Branson is one of the examples, but there are many on the list, the source of inspiration. Thomas .A. Edison, Albert Einstein, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Akio Morita are just to name few. They failed at first, many times before they reached their desired goals; Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he finally invented the light bulb.
Success does not come overnight; don’t be scared over a friendly guest called failure. Wait and put all your efforts, figure out things even if you fail a couple of times, what you have been doing wrong, where is the problem, in the end it does not even count but remember everything you have been perusing in your life, whatever it is needs a plan B.
The secret ingredient to success lies within you. Your attitude towards your life defines your success or failure. It’s not about doing right thing at the right time, in the abstract it does but then all good things in life don’t come for free. As mentioned earlier happiness is the key. Happiness is the key ingredient, if you are not happy with what you are doing then nothing can save you, even your best possible effort.
Many people define success equivalent to the sum one owns. But accumulating huge sum of money is success. “What’s money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between he does things he wanted to do.” Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.
We are part of a bigger wisdom, a bigger electron. Money does contribute to happiness and success but ‘family’ ‘friends’ ‘love’ ‘laughter’ more than that. Money is just the by-product to more meaningful things in life. Do what you want to, follow your passion, live your dream. “What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within.”
