Success stories!

We all love success stories, don’t we? And even if we don’t just play along with me here, ’cause I’m doing a thing. The point is, there are a lot of successful people in the world, so they’ve probably got something to say on the subject, something we can all hope to emulate in order to achieve our own success, right? To that end, here are three success stories to enlighten and inspire you.

Succeeder #1!

Q: What would you say is the most important skill for someone seeking to reach a similar level of success to the one that you have?

A: Hard work. I cannot stress this enough. You’ve got to put in the hours. You’ve got to show up, and you’ve got work your butt off if you want to succeed.

Q: Prior to achieving your enormous success, how did you pay for rent, food, and gasoline?

A: Um… well, actually, my parents… [trails off]

Succeeder #2!

Q: When aiming for great success, what is something that people should always be aware of?

A: Always remember, success is not necessarily about being totally original. Sometimes it’s about doing something better than anyone else has ever done it before. Sometimes it’s about combining two ideas that nobody’s ever tried before. But don’t be afraid to let other people and their ideas inspire you. Innovation is not something that happens in a vacuum, you are allowed to build on the past.

Q: Prior to achieving your enormous success, how did you pay for rent, food, and gasoline?

A: Um, well, my spouse actually, um….

Succeeder #3!

Q: Is there a mindset that one should adopt to enable oneself to be successful?

A: Absolutely. Inwardly, you should be focused on your goal, while outwardly seeking any opportunity you can to achieve that goal. Don’t allow your internal thoughts to distract you, don’t listen to all those doubts that say you “can’t” do it. And when you are out in the world, day to day, look for things you can do — large or small — that will move you closer to your goals. Talk to people. Ask questions. Meet everyone you can — someone out there might be able to help you, and vice versa.

Q: Prior to achieving your enormous success, how did you pay for rent, food, and gasoline?

A: I have a trust fund.

There you are, three unique and inspiring success stories! Armed with this knowledge, we ordinary proles can now stride forth into the future, confident in the fact that if they did it, anyone can!
