What does it take to be successful?
Books by the 100's provide a prescription, a plan, or a word of advice. Most turn out to be very helpful but, I have noticed there is one thing missing from all of them. It is the one thing that is a common thread of every successful business person, company, or an investor.
Yes, we have to have a good idea that solves a problem or need; yes, good people are important; and yes, tenancity and persistance are all a must. But, there is one aspect of success that is deeper--one that, if missing, will cause failure. If you talk to successful people you will feel it, but they might not even mention it as THE key. They might blame their success on a new product, or a new computer, or on a good manager. They all miss the point!
So, what is it? It is excitement, enthusiasm and it's staying motivated. Making money is a good motivator; a dream motivates some, just working toward a goal motivates others.
What motivates YOU......?
