Just like happiness, success means different things to different people.
Success had been defined very differently by different people. We have covered successful people on this blog and what success means to them. In fact we have a separate category here about success called Laws of Success
But what is success and why only some of us succeed while other don’t, why is success in the minority ? Is being successful being luck, how important is luck to a successful person.
Is there really a secret to success ?
Richard St. John was on his way to the TED conference when a girl on the plane asked him, “What really leads to success?” Even though he had achieved some success, he couldn’t explain what it meant.
To get to the root of the girls question, “What really leads to success?”, he spent the next 7 years interviewing and researching about success. He interviewed over 500 successful people across different fields on what helped them achieve success.
After analyzing and collating through his research on success, he discovered The 8 Traits Successful People have in common. He has clubbed his research in a book titled 8 To Be Great.
In the below Ted Talk he condenses 7 years of research work and over 500 interviews into a three minute slide show.
What does success mean to you ?
Have a Super Sunday and a Successful Week Ahead 🙂
